That pic of the wee V50 is super, a special snap of the late 70's early 80's and your life then...

Wow...

Thanks, Rob, but the chrome came up nice with a lot of elbow grease and some Dupont Chrome Cleaner.
I started with 000 steel wool and went to a polishing wheel/buffer as the
finish started to come up.
I was very lucky. Since I live only 7 miles from the ocean and 2 miles from the
Delaware Bay, the air is rather "saline" to put it mildly.
As soon as the garage warms up, I'll be installing the transmission.

I'm hoping the $ strengthens a bit against the Euro soon.

Parts from MG Cycle have gone up 40% since I first started this resto.

Looking for some used parts now. Or wait for The Redneck Retirement Plan

to get some + cash flow.
