They are burried in piles of parts awaiting restoration!
I noticed the inspection sticker on the forks and the strange head light.

Are those Honda XL forks?

The forks are Betor. Rumor has it they came off of a Can Am 125. The bike was given to me by a friend who owned a Kawasaki dealership in the 1970's. When he closed his shop he moved the shop's entire inventory into his farm house basement where it still sits! He has tons of 70's NOS parts and old bikes but won't part with anything! Makes me crazy! It's all just rotting away! He also has a new in the crate 1971 Husky 250!

I guess I'll add to the mill pics. I bought this used awhile back. Mainly it did small aluminum runs so it was in pretty good shape. They come in handy but the tooling costs can sure add up.

Just bought the house a year ago, and every room needed serious work...so the garage will get some love this year I hope. But hey, there is a motorbike in there, so I'm happy.

Finally found the time to wire up my mill today after finishing up a couple of welding jobs. Mounted the TECO FM50 VFD and hooked her up.

Having never heard one of these critters run, I "think" its okay. Only real "alarming" noise I hear is a sort of a chattering if I run her up to the higher end of the RPM range with the variable speed dial on the mill itself. Stay out of the last couple of hundred RPM it sounds fine.... sounds like a machine running. I use the term "alarming" 'cause its not purring quietly like it does at the lower speeds, which may be normal. Dunno.

Regardless, I'm happy with my "no power up inspection" purchase from a dealer up in Joisey I knew nothing about. It was one of those "leaps of faith" things that appears as tho' it turned out good.

I need some bits............

"no power up inspection"
Yeaaa...that's always a nervous time for sure.
Looking good, when you need some tooling..(right now)..give these guys a call.

I have used them for most of my inserted tooling, and inserts. Also real knowledgeable too.

Looking at the pictures I don't see the "cycle start"..or as its known around here the big green button...
