Why do your customers not post here Charlie?

Too busy making money to pay me to keep their bikes going? IDK. Some are on other forums like Wildguzzi or the Loopframe Guzzi Yahoo Group. Most just don't spend much time online.

I have a 71 ambo that had the usual flakey chrome cylinders. I replaced the cylinders and had the heads done. Pretty much finshed now so no project thread. Just didn't want to be left out of the club.

What you on about Willis!

of course it's a project, I can tell that by the amount of money it is costing! compared to the amount of time I am riding it

Just bought head gaskets, base gaskets, and 12 o-rings.. 45 that is $70 can you believe the o-rings were $1.56 each

Yes a right little bunch of masochists ( correct spelling??) we've got going here. Can't wait for mine to arrive. Knowing my luck the 'Dusseldorf Express', on which mines is currently a steerage passenger, will be sunk by an escapee U- boat mid Atlantic.
Rgds,
DB.

Me!

I bought a 70 Ambo about a year ago, it was totally disassembled. A bare frame and several boxes of parts. The PO had started the restoration but passed away and the thing sat for several years. I have now started the process in earnest. The transmission has been re assembled, I have started the engine assembly, and the frame is at the powder coaters. I'ts a big jigsaw puzzle, the big part is finding out the stuff I DON'T have. I plan to have it running this summer!

On-going projects

Both my loops (72 Eldo, 74 Cali) are on-going projects. Unlike some of you brave people who go for full enchilada, I haven't had the nerve to do a complete restoration - I just fix whatever is going wrong, with any luck before it fails. Usually I'm not successful, which makes for some interesting times on the road, but being a masochist, I like it that way.

Nick

I have one that is.. well.. not even to a state i'd call a project yet. We call him "rusty" and has the dubious distinction of being the "brownest white motorcycle ever seen by Jason".
