As I intend to return to the US in a couple of years to build a home in Portland, I started my project with a good unmolosted engine, I figure, since I will be in and out of the US for the next couple of years, till the house is started.. I would keep all the parts that I find at the stepdaughters house for safekeeping...and work on it when I am here....
This retirement project, is to go along with my hotrod flattie. Another put together, mix and match...(sorry, no restoration). A fun rider and what ever fits, and fits my wallet....well.. It will go to use.
Here's what I have began:
58FL engine, found in Holland, 58 Frame, found in Texas, Round swingarm, came out of Florida.
Tanks.....oh yea, a good buddy there in the US, swapped a couple parts for them...he may recogonize them... good solid tanks!
4 Speed transmission, just stuck on, waiting on mounting plate to arrive, before I go back to Germany on Saturday.
Front end, off a Sportie....gotta find a front fender for it.
Rear fender, it is on its way to me here in Portland Oregon, and I hope that it makes it here prior to leaving as well.
Other parts....well............got to find dash panel, speed-o, cover plate, seat, and a ton of other stuff to make it go.
Photos to follow.
