    One of Phil's rigs.
    A 79 .
    Thought I'd get a few dollars back so sold him the tire.
    Couldn't get him to bite on the camper though.

    Moved here from the Motorcycles with Car engines thread. This motor is from a Trabant.
    I like the front braking solution , anti - dive linkage and hydraulic actuation.

    Just curious, Dave, what size wheel and tire do you have on the leading links of your Concours?

    Would comment but a hundred years on is not long enough to be safe from these girls.

    Not certain that the springs on that car would respond well to the recoil of that Lewis. I can easily see an harmonic feedback loop causing unfortunate consequences.

    I don't think the person on the other end of the bullet would be too worried about the recoil :lol3

    the LL was originally built for a 1982 era goldwing. Brakes and wheel are all from that. it's got a 130/90-16 rear wheel mounted backwards.
