Very good guy to deal with...gave me a run-down on what he had done to it, and is giving me a BUNCH of spare parts and the chilton manual (I need to get a Clymer manual). The bike is complete as it stands, but I'll have an extra 1.5 engines (one complete, one needs some work), and several boxes of take-offs, spares, miscellaneous parts, etc.
Got it just in the nick of time too...he's heading overseas very soon. Like it wouldn't be available at the end of the week...that soon.
Once I get it home, and start playing with it, I'm sure I'll put up a thread elsewhere...maybe in Old's Cool.
And for now, I'm thinking that PIMPN number plate stays.
Yep, you have to jump on those good deals when you see them. I missed out of a Dnepr sidecar rig several months back. If I had called right when I saw it, I'd own it! But I waited until the next morning and they guy was helping the new owner to load it up! I think I might start looking for a project that will evolve into the bike you got!
The plate is tasteful, you can't really tell what it says until you think about it for a minute. Very cool bike, Congrats.
