With nothing else in your shed to keep you busy, I guess you have to find something to occupy your days.
Maybe we all have a project bike lurking either in a dusty corner or maybe just in our immaginations.
I can see you are turning your imagination into something quite tangible and interesting.
I for one have a rather daunting queue of "project bikes" awaiting my attention. But with two daughters under the age of 2, the question is when will I have the time? Projects as follows..
1951 R67 - complete and running in nice original condition. Low mileage bike but deserving of a mechanical freshening.
1955 R50 - Missing the fenders and 1 wheel. Otherwise mostly complete, titled and matching. Needs everything.
1955 R69 - titled frame and engine to turn my non-matching bike into a matching one
1958 R69 - complete and running but non-matching numbers.
1961 R50S - complete and ready for a full restoration
1964 R69S - bought as a nearly complete project. Just needs to be sorted and few issues addressed.
1965 R60/2 with an R90/6 motor. Bought complete but hasn't run in a decade.
1966 R69S - bought as a titled frame with front end, motor, gearbox and final drive all matching numbers complete with carbs for $300 about 4 years ago. Garage sale. Sometimes you get lucky.
1968 R50/2 - complete and nice cosmetic bike. High mileage. Time for a rebuild.
While I had the /2 transmission at a friends machine shop making adjustments to the output flange (a/5 SWB driveshaft flange is a little different) I shared my thoughts on removing the air box. DONE! He also made up some nifty clip-on's and steering damper knob. Still debating adjusting the rear trans cover to have a top pull clutch arm.
I going to stick with the /7 gas tank with a few modifications, For Now!!!
