    When you get fuel on your nutsack, it's quite an unpleasant experience no matter the octane. DAMHIK :eekers

    I spent 6 months at the age of 16 on my FS1E with a leaking tank, wondered why I never had much luck with ladies during that period.....:dunno
    Discovered chemical metal and girls about the same time.......:D

    Oh, yeah. 16. I will say it again 16. 17, 18, 19 was okay, but, 16 wow was that a delivery into self direction. I worked for a construction company and bought anything I wanted that I could afford which meant a Harley-Davidson knucklehead chopper for nights in town and a myriad of two-stroke dirt bikes. All the two-strokes were fueled with twice the recommended amount of Blendzall green label castor just to over-dose on the smell. I would wake up most mornings with the smell of girls make-up and perfume on the right shoulder (left shoulder for Wildebeest) of my shirt and the smell of castor oil everywhere in and around my pickup truck. My mother kept telling me I was not an adult and could not do anything I wanted, but she was cut from the same cloth and just said it to be a parent. My dad, well he was a scientist and wanted me to be a scientist, not a hoodlum. We made amends later and spent 40 years in a machine shop together making all sorts of cool stuff.

    can't remember if this has been posted before
    I like the way the indent curve on the tank nearly matches the angle of the downtube

    I notice the "Dave Croxford" on the fairing - he was a hell of a character, bloody quick but he crashed all the time but I think he only ever broke one finger. He went on to be Peter Williams team mate at Norton.

    Culled these pics from cobuilt_geoff on insta. He's done a couple of exhausts and a frame for me, just finished these for a customer.

    After three decades with an ARD electronic magneto I just installed an Electrex World ignition under the primary cover. I think it is really going to be great. Easy install, timing, starting, quick revs. WIN_20200424_11_17_30_Pro.jpg

    We're lucky dogs around here. We've got Matt at Speed & Sport to run interference for us. They will be going on a 1971 250 and 400 Husky assuming we don't go broke or insane, whichever might come first.
