    This is going to be Josh when he gets older, tinkering until the end of his days, what an honest way of doing things.

    Thanks,

    Motor

    Our fully restored motor has been received back at Base Camp. Josh's wife is doing the heavy work with a makeshift dolly, spectacular!

    They look like Seibenrock barrels and heads now.

    The engine is beautiful, but remember, when properly used, the front cover is for killing bugs, and the valve covers limit your turning radius.:

    Wow!

    Really a rolling work of art (OK rolling on a skateboard for now, but still .... Maybe I missed it, but did you clearcoat or otherwise put anything on that nice shiney aluminum so that it stays that way?

    Dear Bruno, yes, the shiny bits have been clear coated so they stay that way as long as possible. Vapor blasted the heads and carbs to get them a nice new look, amazing technology and very inexpensive to do, I think the carbs were $40 to vapor blast both of them.

    Thanks for following my antics,
    Shane
