Subscribed - great thread

wow, snow in the Bay Area.
correct me if I am confused- but don't you have 2 more of these bikes still packed up? Are you seriously going to rebuild them all???
after this you should open your own specialty "Minsk Repair and Rebuild" shop.
PS: I once put a whole motorcycle in the back of my Rabbit Convertible. fit, but there was some oil spillage...
Yeah, none down, two to go. Thanks for reminding me.
If by some unfortunate turn of events someone else in north america has a Minsk I would be happy to work on it! I don't know why I feel this way, but I do.
Please tell me you have pictures of a motorcycle in the back of a Rabbit. I just spent the whole day working on my Rabbit, and it still sucks.
This thread is gold, love the soda episode .
This is wonderfully painful to watch.
I will stand by; I know CPR.
I and another chum once attempted to "restore" I think Honda's very first ever ATV with four wheels.
It started the same way. I won't tell you how it ended, there are restraining orders in place, just sayin.
Mullet-- thanks for posting this, in particular the soda blasting part: I have never laughed so hard at anything on ADV.
Thanks again, and keep it up.
Just wait til he blasts the other two Minsks.
This thread is keeping me from hurting my coworkers in an otherwise miserable week at work (and it's only Tuesday?!?!).
Love the effort, and totally understand the motivation.
Keep it up!!!
Thanks for the warning!
I don't understand, won't 'merican pop can shims work to fix this very minor bit of wear?
Great thread. At least it's not me throwing away my hard earned cash on something that everyone else knows is ju^H^H^H not so collectible.
And on the other hand of the baking soda affair; I'll bet you garage never smelled fresher...
Thanks for this. As one who has toiled many hours on what others felt were pointless tasks, I understand the urge to fix these questionable things up. Can't explain it or justify it, but I understand. Probably the same urge that lemmings get just before they hurl themselves off cliffs--- made sense at the time....
Subscribed! Great thread for not so great bikes. This is like watching a train wreck, I can't take my eyes off it!
Ahh, you obviously have one of the limited edition racing Minsks, with special easily alterable front suspension geometry!
Funny you should notice that, as the bike also came with the ultra rare Works AMG/TWR adjustable foot pegs. To adjust them you simply stand on them whilst going 20+ miles per hour and they will break right the hell off, then you can weld them back on in any position you want. Adjustable pegs for the people!
This is so good you popped my "thread subscription" cherry... first one ever... be gentle.
Well, look at it this way. You won't have to worry about anything in your garage getting a chemical burn for awhile.
The suspense of our proper repair report is kill'in me.
Hell, I would of just refreshened it up with some Domestic Beer can stock...
