If this doesn't fit in this thread let me know and I'll nuke it...



Actually took this today. Found this 1973 TL125 in a barn late last year and have been resurrecting it after it sat for 18 years. If you care to follow along, the story is here: Linky



Plan to keep it original and run it. I'll confess to replacing the seat. Something about a holey seat. Also mounted new rubber today.

After a valve check it's going in the woods.

Doc Batsleer in Fla. has a running two stroke Ner-a-car, but this one is a flatheat 4 stroke. Not sure if its American or Brit the two-strokers were made in both countries. If only they'd caught on we wouldn't be in the mess we're in.

The one I saw in BC at the O'keefe Ranch Vintage Motorcycle Ralley, probably 6-8 years or so ago.

Heres a few from a get together last weekend.

The bikes are not restored but modified to live (organic) - not for the purists - but the blokes that own these bikes ride and often/ almost always take the hard road.

Claudes 500 Velo


A home brew boxer

A dog carrier

Hmm

What about taking a JPS Triton down 40 k of rutted rock strewn raod ?

Not something most "riders" would do

More

Got tons of pix - restoration is somewhat overated - its about the riding I reckon.

It certainly is a Ner-A-Car, and I am hoping to get a ride on one this year, Dane do you have any other pictures of it, as Ken who runs the Ner-A-Car registry would like to know.
