SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

Best, Bob Davidson

just went thru your build at the link...

I am floored by what you are doing. Not sure even HOW you know how to mix and match all those parts, or
even make it all work together.

Serious skills there.

Here is a different link to the build.

This is a UK site. Them guys build some odd stuff.
The thread is pretty much the same as the other one, but these guys are more chatty. More description, detail and input from others. Some good friends from across the pond, great guys.

And that is basically just the engine.
The trans and everything else is a mix match hodge podge of stuff that ain't supposed to fit together.
When the original build happened was before smart phones and always having a camera in your pocket. I have just a few pics of the original build towards the end, I got me one of those new fangled digital cameras that had just came out.
