I got the bear today. Finally!!

I finally get to win one!
Bout time. This is also what we call a " tool gloat "
on another forum I used to frequent.
It pays to get up early, look at the C-list ads and act right away.
$75.00 for the lift.
Holy Stick!
Now I have three lifts in the shop. One for every dead (project) bike.

It's the resurrection of the bike that I crashed August of 09, my knees got pretty banged up and still are giving me fits. So, now that this is off the floor, maybe I can finally get it done!

Son of a b!tch. I'm always looking out for something like that on CL. My many times daly searches are for "BMW", "Airhead", "Lift", and whatever other tool/etc I might be looking for at the time (right now it's a bench grinder).

No matter how tempting ( or cheap ) it is, stay away from those piece of shit modern made in Chicom, Taiwan etc grinders.
They have NO balls, and don't usually last.
The best favorite I have is this 1960s Craftsman that I bought from a used tool store, repainted and put in fresh bearings.
It is awesome and doesn't stall. Good grinder for the bucks.
I paid $20.00, and another $10.00 in bearings.

I'd love to find one like that. I'm not in a HUGE hurry as I've got a few drill attachments that I can currently use to re-polish already polished parts and I have Dremel/RotoZip attachments for detail grinding, but eventually...

Here's a neat one...it'd just take up too much space:

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/tls/2146122501.html

I did have a bit of a Craigslist SCORE on Tuesday though. My roommate's R75/6 has a few small holes on the inner sides of the stock Zeuna mufflers. I found a local Airhead guy selling a set of like new Whispertones for 38mm headpipes for $125. Picked them up tonight. Incidentally, my 35mm Whispertones for the R65 came via UPS today. Side by side, you can barely tell that his are used. They're that nice. Of course, mine were twice the price as I bought them brand new.

That's one of the R65 frustrations...can't find much in the way of used parts!

That grinder is WAY over priced.
The "grinder" itself is just a dual shaft motor with a couple of wheel arbors on it.
Okay, but not my first choice. Also not the safest setup in the world.
Send me your email address, I will forward ebay and C-list grinders to you when I see them. I'm always buying and selling stuff, but most importantly, I'm always watching.

I have a sideline selling used BMW parts as well, check with me when you need something. If I don't have it I can help you with all my vast contacts.
Besides all that I'm i Joshua Tree. Not too far and a great escape.

Thanks, I will. Found a decent grinder on CL today. Emailed the guy. Might check it out if I have time. Doing a bunch of stuff to the bike this afternoon...might have to check out the grinder tomorrow. It's a Delta, which is a brand I tend to trust (my dad had a big Delta table saw when I was a kid, I always remember how solid that thing was)...
