The Bilge pump - before and after - first it was a tank then a fairing then - it all went mad
Yes - I know the number plates are different that is because I used a spare chassis as the donor but the heart and sole of the bilge pump was transplanted into the redeveloped chassis.

That is spectacular!

Well done!

This year I've managed to avoid the Kiwi winter by being back in the UK for a few months, and I just wish that I could avoid winter on a more regular basis.

If you need your memory jogging with any other Northumbrian shots just shout.

Unfortunately, we have Autumn for 10 months of the year in Britain.

Look what I found in the middle of Texas of all places on my last trip. Several other airheads there too but had never seen anything like this before.

Yep, Krauser frame/bodywork, I'm surprised it does not have the 4 valve heads, but then again, most of those did not seem to last too long.

Thanks for posting that.

Cheers

Sargent recovered the seat, did well on the cover, but something is not quite right with the trim. Huge improvement.

Now....those push rod tubes need to go!

This is my first airhead, and im seriously diggin it. Bought as a project to fix and move on to another one but I think I might just hang on to it. She's growing on me.
