    Really.... one f'en drop of oil brings out your critisism on a near century old machine that probalby has not undergone a proper restoration, if one at all?
    You know, oil was not an issue 50 years ago, and it isn't one today. Some motors are designed to blow oil out a breather, oil a chain with mist... etc etc.

    Geesh.

    As pointed out earlier in the thread, this photo is just amazing.

    The look on his face oozes "there is nothing in the world I would rather be doing - ever".
