TOO MANY PROJECTS!
what do you do when you have too many projects and not enough time or money?
the race mower is an old 1960 huffy 5hp mower that has recieved a 14.5hp ohv briggs motor. i still need to get the frame, trans, rear end, spindles, and steering built.
the motor cycle frame i got when i got my triumph motor but fits a honda. im on the lookout for an old handa for the motor and small odds and ends to make a little jap chopper. maybe ill come across an old two stroke motor! im getting more ideas!
the triumph motor and trans are from a 1955 thunderbird. i need to find the rest of the bike to get this one going. i think this one will be my favorite, but will also be the most involved and expensive.
the yamaha is a 1972 ls2. 100cc twin cylinder with dual carbs. this will be a cool two stroke cafe racer. so far as i have found, this bike was only manufactured for 4 years and only availiable in the U.S. in 1972. i got it running after is had been sitting in a field for 20 years. i need to find a full gasket set, piston rings, and some carbs. i got these carbs working but they are way to corroded.
