Hopefully rolling by Sunday:
Nice work there, Fred.
Found this one in sturgis
It's kind of like the "Jesus Bike" light. http://thefamilyplace.net/jesusbike.html
I have a poster of the Jesus bike, not my style, but a not often seen bike, besides, it was a Guzzi!!
That ought to even every thing out.
Any colour you like as long as its Black.
Finally, from Thailand of all places, a decent quality repro of the T3 seat cover.
Not a Guzzi
But , Moto Cardan got a lot right in 1904.
Got the Eldo on the road finally. With the new clutch it's amazingly quieter and pick up is much more positive. I think one clutch plate failed a long time ago and the center was just spinning around in there and all the drive was being carried by the other plate. One center was all tumbled looking:
I left all the Wixom stuff off for a while. It's been on the bike for ~18 years.
Wow, beautiful Eldo!
This bike is cool, but, I'm a little confused. Is that a custom frame? looks like a 1100 Sport fuel tank, but, then I see a round-barrel engine. Lot's of different eras mixed together.
i had a clutch plate fail like that on a le mans 2, i could run it at 105 MPH (170km/h) before it started slipping.
not sure the touring engine actually has the power needed to get clutch slip with one clutch plate
so quite probable you ran it with one disk
Just a picture I found on FB. I'll leave to the experts to figure out what it is.
Looks like spine-frame "pork chop" frame with a round-fin motor.
^^ Pork chop frame. Never heard that. Suits it perfectly.
The later spine frames like the Centauro and Daytona RS have an even meatier pork chop but no stash hidey hole:
^^ Tony Foale came up with that frame, but he's rarely credited for it.
