    OK, I have to know, how do I get on your bike buyer list?!

    I haven't seen so many neat project bikes in one album since the estate sale of two barns full of "ran when parked" classics some years back.

    Do you have a website?

    My father rode a '49 Matchless G80 and I would love to build one just like his.
    I would love to restore an AJS, Matchless, or Goldstar single.

    I have wanted to build a Matchless Metisse for 35 years but was unable to ever find an engine.
    So now I am building a Triumph TR6C Rickman Metisse and I am looking for a BSA B50 rear hub/brake.
    Happen to have one? :wink:

    Well, not THE actual bike:D......I've been looking for a 1966 Honda CL160 Scrambler for a long time, found a few but they were always to much money for my tight wad ass....this is a pretty good example of the first bike I ever owned....
