wow, that camera really sucks. That was the cheapo replacement I bought in Georgia (the Georgia in NW Asia) when my good camera fell in the toilet.
(hey, it was dirty... )

anyhow, I just went out & took some better pics.



the new mikuni



new seat, I know, I need a new cover for it....

On my list of 'must finish this winter!'

my 48 Chief. New motor, basically I need to order a couple parts, & bolt it back together. I hate seein it sit. I love this bike!

Of course I need to start building next years travel bike, as soon as I find an innocent unsuspecting evo sporty to butcher up

I believe it was a 50 pound bag of baking soda shot through a soda blaster. Really. It's hilarious (ifn you don't have to clean out all the toolboxes).

[quote=rtwdoug]Today I decided to mess with the /2
I like it alot, but hate the seat. Im too tall for it, & end up sitting on the hump in the middle, so I wanted to put a solo seat on it, & remove the bags & rack, as I found a sidecar for it, so I will have enough storage space, and it'll look alot cleaner

before.....



ok for some reason it's easyier to picture that tank now..................nice

I've been keepin' my eyes peeled on the local stuff that meets your requirements Doug but all the unblemished lower miled 1200's around here are in the mid to upper 4K range.

About that Cushman, I don't think I've ever seen a Mikuni and an oil-bath air cleaner in the same photo before.

I think it'll be big fun, and also an added attraction for the motocamp.
I just read this and told my buddy about it! That sounds like a blast!
