Cheers lads.

I bought these for the headers, theres nowt wrong with the threads, the pipes ive made don't fit in the cylinder any more so i thought it'd be easier with these rather than the exhaust rose.

No, the frame had to be braced, chopped, turned, adapted, and re welded up!
I'm slowly updating the build here - http://superbeemer.blogspot.co.uk/

Hope it helps

Yes it's true, my bike is on Google Maps and I play a supporting role as Shade Tree mechanic.

Thanks to all who helped save the photos and to Bjoern who sent the one above.

You gotta get the shadow of the telephone poles on the road to balance out the picture! Amateur.

Now I recommend taking your address off the thread.. you never know when some weirdo/stalker might look you up. I had a weirdo stalker about a year ago and they thankfully never visited my house, that I know of.

Thanks CDD, I had forgotten to do that till you mentioned it. Although this particular place would be very dangerous to mess with. Crazy Red Necks for house mates.

It was September 7th at a show called simply "The Airheads" at Deus Ex Machina 1001 Venice Blvd in Venice. Some very Nice bikes there...




You should come out to some of the events, always a good time. There's usually a number of Airheads at the VVMC rides, R75 toasters, some nice R60's, beautiful restored R50s, slow pace friendly people, they are always a blast.

Thanks Jim

According to vvmc site, there's no more events scheduled for '13.

Do you ever come down to OC? Nice meet up the 2nd Sunday of each month. I get out there about every other month. Lots of different bikes are representative. http://www.vintagebikeoc.com/home/index.php

Thanks again, Sam
