One is taking the frame, forks, and shock. Another is taking the plastics - shrouds, headlight/mask, rear fender/taillight, sidestand, and possibly the seat. Once I bring it back from Jeff's I'll be taking it completely apart and seeing what I need to come up with re: shipping the frame to the east coast UPS Ground. I imagine a small crate - will be on the lookout for something like a bicycle shipping crate.

That leaves the wheel/tire combos, brake/caliper/line combos, motor, carb (Keihin PWK 38), triple clamp, and miscellaneous bits and pieces.


Might be time to change that smiley next to the 380 in your sig line.

Turn that frown upside down.

Ah, it must be nice with new bikes. Being able to sell stuff like the frame, lol. I'm so used to old stuff noone is interested in basic stuff like that so you end up just cutting it into pieces and tossing it.

you consider a 1998 new? It's not ancient....but it's been around a while.

if that chassis didn't come with a street titled VIN, it would be a long term shelf decoration

Heck yeah 98 is new, water cooling is new. That's a space age mechanical wonder you're taking apart there!

Edit to add: I might soon have a very large secret. I'm so excited about it i dont know if i will be able to sleep tonight :O!

Naw, not a stalker van. Stalker vans are full size domestic vans anyway, preferably with a luv boat window in the back.

Anyone know where I might be able to find small gears in the greater Denver metro area? This is a drive gear for a 1950's light system that came with a 1950's aluminum tree. I'd rather keep it than replace it since this plastic gear is all that's broken:




Center hole is 3.2mm, and I think I counted 60 tooth. The slotted holes aren't used, nor are the 2 small holes.

I'm doing this as a Christmas gift for my wife, so really ANY kind of help/leads would be appreciated.

Brian: take it down to a hobby shop that has a bunch of associated & losi parts and you might luck into a sprocket that matches.
