I just bought a flawless rust free hood for it. It will be painted and running this Spring. Why are you looking for one?

Good to see it will be on the road soon. Back in the early seventies (74?) my buddy had a jeep CJ5 and we had a lot of fun in it. One day going down Ford Road I saw something that looked like a jeep in the lot at the Pontiac dealer at Ford and Wayne. Stopped in to look at it and it was something called a Toyota Landcruiser. Seems it had been owned by American Motors and had been sitting for awhile. Made the deal ($3000) and had a ball with it for years. Sold it for $1300. Still have the factory manual and my old Man-A-Fre catalogs. Still have dreams that I find my old one and restore it. Have fun and be sure to put photos up when you're done. Too many projects for me (2 wheels) to take on a truck.

Gordon

p.s. One of the mechanics at the BMW dealer on Ford road is reviving one also.

I enjoyed the video, Eric. Thanks for sharing it. Look forward to seeing you and Jack at some of the rides this year.

Braden, it's a great bunch of people here, and you fit right in.

C'mon spring !

Not Detroit.

But near enough to go for a ride.
Rode to AK a few years ago.
Hit a caribou.
Busted myself and the bike.
Fixed the bike.
Limped around on the bike for a while.
Got bushwhacked.
(Never knew the meaning of the word until then )
Pics at my web page somewhere www.geekwithacamera.com
Something like a ride report here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/exposur...7616511978032/
Not on here much, email is better.
Ride an older gs1100..
Have a top gas drag bike ( top gas is an 8.20 bracket class ), a chopper that beat an occ bike at an "unveiling", discovery channel cameras and all.
Ride the BMW a lot.
Help out as pit crew for some friends that run a nitro funny car.

Nice video. Looks like it could have been John B on the green bike.

Yup, we caught up with him and then rode the rest of the loop with him. Good guy.
