    Nice, Marc

    Please, folks, post more photos!



    Click on the above photo to go to my R69S web page.

    My eyes became pixelated and fingers numb after clearing out the background of this R51/3 photo:

    I worked on this photo off and on for three days. Almost half of that was the front wheel!

    Here it is before:

    I'm impressed with the photo work. I tried to get rid of the background on an older pic of mine, once, but gave up when it came to the wheels. It was just too much work for the result I was after. I see you removed the center stand, too.

    A friend cleaned this up for me. He is much more adept at this.

    Thumbs up 1968 R60/2 Sicecar Rig

    This is a project I started back in the late 70's when I purchased the bike from a friend after his wife put it into a culvert. Repaired the front end with all new used parts I purchased while traveling in Europe. Rode it for 6-7 yrs before deciding to make use of the sidecar tabs and add a hack. Found a used car in SL, added the big tank, tank cover, s/c rearend, rebuilt the wheels with sidecar spokes, sidecar springs on rear, seats, luggage rack, and mirrors. Because car and platform needed repainting when purchased, decided to repaint the bike as well. Not perfect, but runs great and is a ton of fun. Always draws a crowd.

    Ride the rig on a regular basis, including to the West Bend Rally last yr. See you on the road.

    R50-s

    Hi:

    New to this forum but old news to some. Here is a photo of my R50-S on its second maiden voyage after restoration. I went to a Vincent Owners meeting. Only 1 Vincent showed. (Moto Guzzi, Ducati, KTM and a Kawasaki Concours)

    I see plenty of pics and content on Wikipedia that is credited to you. Would you care to share your experience/involvement/input to this publication with us?
    I'm very impressed with the accuracy and thoroughness of the articles.

    Hi Mark,

    All I did was start reading and editing articles and learning how to post text and photographs. Once you the hang of it, it's pretty simple. But you have to leave your ego behind and develop thick skin, because someone somewhere will find fault with whatever you have done.

    Click on "Edit this page" on any article and you can see how the formatting works. Do some simple things first and you will gain confidence.

    Just go to the site and try it out.

    My '59 R26. She's coming out of retirement . We'll get her down to the spa for some treatments and a facial, and she'll be as good as new.



    And with her younger cousins.

    I posted this in the Airhead forum before I noticed it belongs here in vintage.

    My new Craigslist find - 1952 R51/3. Larry owned the bike since 1963. It's been parked since 1968.

    Looks surprisingly good, there! Sweet bike, half drum brakes and the works.

    Any expectations of when you might hear the "pocketa pocketa pocketa"....?
