This bike is beautiful!
MiteyF, what tires did you end up using on this build?
Dooder - I appreciate the kind words! I ended up with Kenda Challengers. I've been impressed by the price/quality of Kendas before, and it's REALLY hard to find street tires that come in an 18" rear and 19" front, especially in the right widths.
I've been working a lot of overtime lately, which means not much time for the build, plus I've been recruited to build a 'fighter TLS for a guy. However, overtime = money, so early next week I hope to have some parts in the mail
Thanks for the reply MiteyF.
I recently picked up a complete, non-running 1975 F7 that I hope to get to the point where I can ride it to work everyday.
Still kinda building the thing in my mind as I'm working on obtaining the title. I really like the looks of your F8.
And, like you said, I'm having a hard time finding tires that fit that are more street-biased.
Hi, I don't mean to threadjack, came across this thread while trying to find info on my MC1.
Had it since I was a kid, been about the only thing thats moved around with me and kept for 25 odd years.
Have had plenty of other bikes, 2t and 4t but I have the fondest memories of riding that bike.
She is in a sad state, stood outside in the rain for 2 years while working elswhere 6 years back, never run since.
Stripped 50% of the motor, looks like water got into the crank case, not too happy about that.
Here in South Africa spares are hard to track down for a 70's 2 smoke!
Nice to see yours looking that good, cheers!
