waitin on some dirtster parts, so I can get that thing goin.

I picked up this 44 chief recently, & today Im trying to get the charging system ironed out, & do a little tuning on it.
I'll probably just swap it over to 12 volts & put a cycle electrics generator on it, would save me some headaches I think

pretty bike, but more chrome than I would prefer.

a 3 seater would be nice if I was single, then I could double date easier!
(my old sidecar outfit was handy for that)

But, since Im not, the first thing I did was put a solo seat on it.

Doug, I just checked the latest pages in this thread (after a long time) and saw the Ducati. If you need any oddball parts, let me know. I still have several boxes of various parts from my old Monster and a 92 900SS/Superlight that I got as a basket case way back. That includes small stuff up to a good crankcase, fresh rebuilt crank for 92-93 models, etc.

Hey Mark
thanks, I'll keep that in mind. So far I havent needed anything, But, it being italian, and me being me, Im sure I'll tear something up on it before long.

You going to the Dania Beach bike show saturday? I am not sure how far it is from you

Doug

Nahhh, didn't want to head to Dania. I had a boatload of chores to do around here while the weather is perfect. I actually got a good bit of it done.

If you ever find the need to do clutch work or head work on the Duc while you have it, PM me. I've made up a couple of special tools that I hung on to after selling both Ducs. Just in case .

I went on safari today, hackin my way thru the jungle lookin for a diamond in the rough.....

those TV guys make it look so easy!


'turn off the paved road' was in the directions. 3 MILES off the paved road...... (the radio started playing banjo music)

You might be a redneck if......
the phrase 'time to re-roof the house' means buying another 20.00 tarp at walmart



this stuff hadnt seen the road for a LOOOOONG time



















The best thing I found was this 47 BSA 500 flat tracker. motor turns over, I was amazed! I'm looking forward to turning gasoline into noise with this!
