That is a really nice Guzzi. I usually don't go for "restored" bikes, but that one has real character.

Not a bike mechanic

Okay, love the thread, heck, loved the rr around the world.
However, not being the mechanical guy growing up, I'm so far behind the 8-ball with regards to maintenance and basically not having a clue. I'm out there riding, reading, helping my buds(gopher), sticking my nose in and getting told to butt out too often. Not everyone grew up with a wrench!
I can handle the jokes, but wanted folks to know that not all noobs have attitudes or think they know it all.
Write on and ride on ya'll. (heck, even my jokes are sappy, LOL)

A seat idea...



Jehu posted this one up this morning on here. It would solve that toolbox lid problem, too.

To be honest I prefer the original version you have there, Doug.

Before you do that, you might want to take down the poster of Adolf Hitler. Somebody might get offended.

Hey, you better not smoke in anymore of your videos as someone may get offended by that too!!

No dickin around in the garage this weekend, I went to an auction in Iowa, fulla old bikes & parts. I didnt get any bikes, but got a pile o parts.
I got a few things for current projects, & some doodads just to help decorate the house with.
Most of it tho, will go to swapmeets. (gotta start savin up for next year)


I really wanted this bike, but had no $ for new toys.


lots & lots of parts


I really wanted this alloy tank for my TT Bonneville, but when bidding started at 800, I had to pass....

2 day auction, so we got the penthouse sweet at the local indian run hilton. I like to check in & tell Hadji my name is Dr Doug Quest, just cuz I love to hear them say 'Ah Dr Quest' (You kids probably never saw the Johnny Quest cartoons)





there was even a midget there, and guess what he was buying.
yep, mini bike parts.
no shit, you just cant make that kinda stuff up!

van was pretty much full, plus a trailer, plus my friends truck



I got some original cast air cleaners still wrapped in newspaper from 1972. May hafta run one of these on the shovel project.


Also got a pile of NOS grasshopper style springers still in early 70's papers.

and a pile of old BSA motors, a few of them are marked DBD, I guess that means Defective British Design?
I guess they will be worth something at the scrapyard.

Sweet indeed. I love the smell of dust, sh/t, hay and grease at those kinds of get togethers!

Cool old tank there in the side of the van behind the seat. Very chopperish. And the hotel, vah! Such luxury you indulge in.

Thanks for the pics.
Dave

New Poster for your shop!

Doug, after looking at that EBay 1947 Moto Guzzi Superalce; I figured that this would make a great new poster for your shop.

Now if anybody complains about this poster, you will really know what kind of nutcase youre dealing with.
Beside the young lady looks like she might be of German descent. She might even have some old family relatives that were connect in some way to the poster.

Im signed up for this one too.

So long as they're not the "34th" variation, they were so poor a design even the scrap yards don't want them!

I've had this shovel for sale, but as the market for these is real soft, & I dont have much in it, I figure I'll butcher it up & take it over there.
Of course the only parts I will probably use is the motor, trans & front part of the frame. I've got an old 30's harley VL springer layin around, & I'll hardtail the frame.
Doug, if you don't ride that Guzzi around the world, you haven't got a single hair on your ass.

Well?... ;)

tell ya what. why dont you come get it & ride it RTW? I'll loan it to ya.

I dunno what I'll do my next RTW ride on, or even if I'll do another. theres alot of other places to see that I havent been to yet, & most of them are on the south side.
dunno what I'll ride either. maybe the Indian, maybe the chopper, maybe I'll buy a new GS1200 (ok, maybe not)
