So much better already. There were things about the '70's that were cruel to vehicles....
Favourite first bike and motor donor. To remain in "unmolested" state incase it deserves a proper resto some day. And then there's my son "Porsche" wearing his sister's pigtails for some reason. I suppose that reason is his tolerance of other people's sense of humor. He's going to drive over me with a track hoe some day.
A week'er two ago I went out to visit mom'n'pop, and Sr and I took shit off the cb. Most of it shall never return!
I'll recap as its been so long...

When I still loved my bike. (I think we may still rekindle the flame)
Guy who owned this was in his late 60's. Trike's only a few years old though, 135hp I think he said. A hopped up VW engine. Sounded awesome.
Photography at 140. Unfortunately couldn't catch the lightning with the cam.

Any advice for popping out 40 year old oil seals? Cuz these are REALly in tHeRE!
Old Parts Score:
Rec Supply -20
eGay 1,567 (might soon deserve it's B back)
"Carefully pry out oil seal, using folded rag to protect outer tube." Sounds simple, eh?
b) 276 months
c) 1196 weeks
e) 800km from home
f) all of the above
Yup, you guessed it. Stranded in Medora Fuckin North Dakota! Alternator is pooched. Can't get home on the battery. Actually can't even get back to the hotel on the battery.
So if all the stars line up tomorrow...
1) The Honda dealership 1/2 hour away will be open on Saturday
2) They will come pick my bike up
3) They will have an alternator for it
4) They will be able to fix it by 3:00pm
5) I will be able to ride home.
If not... I ride home bitch behind my dad and come back for it with the truck next week. Sweet!
It's probably because of all the bragging I was doing in front of all the Harley guys.

The tunnel in the tanks isn't deep enough. It sits higher than the bars. This layout would also come with some seat issues. As I type this I'm thinking to myself "Honda tank with bolt on bars off the forks below the headset?". The Sportster tank is for sale.
