I like the look. can you turn the handle bars without fouling the headers? Also I wonder about the handling?

I don't like the very modern front end, or the hovering seat/tailsection. That said, it's a hell of a nice bike. The tank, I think deserves special mention. I've now got several of those tanks stacked up like firewood in my shop, and I consider them the least aesthetically pleasing part of the T, T3, SP etc. Whoever beat the side dents into that tank transformed it from fugly to a really great looking tank. I may someday try to beat one of my tanks into that shape.

two steps forward, one step back

Was working on final assembly yesterday. Got the brakes hooked up, shifter linkage put together. Mine is an older ambassador and has the lugs for right side shifter, but the PO had rigged a left side shifter with hose clamps and bailing wire. Anyways, got that put together and noticed that the bracket that holds the clutch actuator arm to the rear of tranny was sheared off. Crap. I have no idea how/when that happened. Looks like a new rear cover is in my future. I had gotten this one bored out to accept the 5 speed bearing, so looks like I have to get some machining done as well. Crap.

Yesterday's progress:

Can anyone ID? Surflex?

The friction material is fine, and the rivets are tight, but there's eough wear on the spline teeth to warrant binning, unfortunately. These have maybe 20,000 miles on em.

Purchased my 1974 Eldo in boxes back in winter of 05/06. No resto just freshened up. It's a disc brake, timing chain, Amal carb model. Home made design and build of the sidecar frame and body. Subbed the welding but everything else I did.
Works good but if I ever do another scratch build it will be smaller/lighter.
Hauls the wife and our little dog and camping gear etc comfortably though and that's what counts. I picked up the Wixom fairing, bags and top box from different sellers on flea bay and the IBMWR classifieds.





Owned the 1980 Spada for a couple of years and relunctantly moved it on in 2008. Regretted ever since. Sold to a co worker who in turn sold it to a friend of mine who entered a left hander at speed with the side stand down. (had been changed since I sold it). Bike and rider suffered but both are mobile now. Although the SP doesn't look at all like it does here.
