I talked to the owner for almost an hour yesterday.... He didn't have this with him, and I wasn't sure if I should believe him or not

Looks like it just mostly makes fire and noise. Doesn't seem to be fast, not that it would be a good idea anyway.

Talking My Brother




This is a photo of my brother at age 3?

Back in the day my father had five motorcycles, shortly after we were born he had to get rid of each of them...

After we turned 18 he started again.... and soon he was back up to five again and helping us find our very own...

He raised us well... Here is my brother Enzo at age 23...

As one can see, I did have time to weld up the side stand before blowing outta town; had too much to do in little time. Can't be too picky about the short notice when the director on a video shoot wants you and the bike... ok, mainly just the bike Hopefully I can share some clips prior to the release
The latte in the drain pan is result of 20 or so water crossings in 30cm deep water 30 meters long to get it "just right"; never mind it was pouring rain the entire time (getting pretty cocky toward the 17th crossing ). Darn nut on the airbox for the smog tube was slightly loose. The days afterward was gorgeous for off-road shooting

Here you go!

NICE! I've only done the inside of a tank this way, its nice to see what the finished product looks like.
I noticed this the other day when pouring through all my late 70s bmw joy of riding journals. This is from the 1977 Fall edition. Enjoy!




by the way, if anyone is dying to have any of these journals or your bike specific brochures and can give me a good enough story, I might pass a couple on.
