I still have the Duc and I'll be fixing it this week (just picked them both up yesterday from a friend's in Philly) but this will have its own purpose.
There is still a list of things I need to fix...might fix a few when I go to retrieve the battery but otherwise it is just going to be ordering parts and waiting for spring.
Damnit, I can't take it anymore. My girl is just sitting in the garage with her two friends
(the Duc and Harley are my housemate's)
Damn this (not-quite) wintry weather. I need a project. Something to get me tinkering. Maybe new grips or something? I've already removed the airbox and rejetted the carb on my Speedmaster, and done the exhaust and suspension. Now what? Any suggestions?
Great job with the seat. I think an olive paint job would look pretty studly as well.
Here's a quick story on that BSA. My dad bought that bike from his brother-in-law in 1969, then sold it to my maternal uncle in about 1973. My uncle left it at a buddies house when he moved away in 1978, and I found it in 1991. It was a mess. I've tinkered with it and spent thousands on it over the years. It works pretty well now. My dad painted the wheels as a last-ditch effort to keep them whole while I'm overseas. I'll either replace or powder coat when I get back.
