I think they are also good for warming food - never done that.

You know your South-East Asia. It's Singapore. Been here before? Yes, the previous owner fitted a huge screen!

Found this cheap ratted-out sidehack in Southern California.



Had it shipped out to me and rode it around for a season before tearing into last winter. Here's how it rolled out of the garage in Sept. 2009:





My new project is a 1972 R60/5 I found for $900 out in W.Va.:



The bike will end up a wolf in sheep's clothing once I've mated this 1040cc R90S motor in it:

Hahaha, I'm not though. I'm restoring an r90 that was not a barn find and it's costing about the same :P

My R68 as found. I guess it's a barn. bought from orginal owner, stored since the 70's.




Luckly the PO still had the orginal seat and pillon. I went through the bike, full service, new tires, exhaust system and such and it started right up.



Still got the red denfield seat, aero faring and saddlebags if anyone is interested
