Another one has found its way into the stable. 1980C This will need lots of TLC:BangHead:
Most likely will end up as son's bike, maybe a little cut and chop this time.

Yup, I tell my wife all the time cycles are "a hearding animal" It's not healthy for them to be left alone leaned up against a tree/barn/shed. I consider myself a sort of Rescue shelter for the neglected abandoned and abused motorcycles of the area.

Another one:violent1: Someone else's failed project is now my next. Also an 80 custom.

P7290103.JPG

Of the 5 motors (parts) visible (2) are boat anchors, (2) I'm confidant will run without much work, (1) Will run but needs comp overhaul.
I'm currently working on that one now, it will be satin Black with polished accents , carbs, clutch cover, thermostat housing and pipes and stainless bolts. To be installed in the "Blue thing" above.
