    I am always looking at old signs everywhere I go ... found this at a mechanic shop in the town I garage the bike in Spain.
    Did not decode the entire thing because the shop was closed, may try in the future.
    PA means the province where is located, in this case Palencia; rest of numbers need to find out ...

    MG TD replica update.
    The chassis is complete and sealed. We put the body on this afternoon and tarted up the wheels to show my FIL who was over for Thanksgiving Dinner.
    That’s it for this year, we’ll pickle it and wrap it up for the winter. The engine and gearbox are out and will be rebuilt in my loft shop.
    With some further good fortune we’ll install it all back in the car next spring.
    After the engine is all new wiring and the aesthetics.

    I’m going with Brooklands windscreens and a roll bar behind the seats.
    What number should I put on the side? I’ll be making some leather straps for the hood tie down, may even do leather for the engine cover tie down.
    mallozzi suggested lemons racing it, instead I’m looking at joining the local rally club which hosts a couple rally cross events.

    Way too nice for a Lemons race, but they do rallys as well. With the right costumes you’d fit right in.

    New addition a few months back. I had a ironhead sportster a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Relatively trouble free for the two years I owned it.
    I do enjoy the style and simplicity of a nothin fancy sportster.
    This one is a 2001 w/ 9300 miles. Drove up to Ohio to get it, $3500. Had to take 20 lbs of chrome and bs off of it.
    Will be getting seat recovered and a new paint job (red tank/black fenders) over the winter months.
    It's decidedly different in every way from the airheads, which I really enjoy. If I collected cars, this might be the equivalent to a Camaro, I suppose.

    Stoked. 7500 miles, unmolested. Just swapping those old M2 wheels for the bling PM wheels. Big fun.

    Non motorcycle related project that I’m finally getting back to now that the R50 is running good and doesn’t need anything else at the moment.

    Superb. Reminds me that a desktop waterjet cutting machine would be great for fabricating parts. This whole assembly is brilliant. Concept vs. reality looks like it really worked this time. Art , sir!
