Sweet, is it yours?
I posted my old "65" Honda in the old thread. My pictures are still being held hostage by Photosuckit.

Some people are like Slinkys. Pretty much useless but still make you smile when you push them down the stairs.

There is no right way to do something wrong.

Yea, it's mine and I'm thinking about making a rack for it to haul behind my Blazer so I can use it at the range to fetch  targets...otherwise it get ran about once a year....and it's due for a gas change out soon before I have issues.

 

I go into photosuckit and download pics as I need them onto imgur.

You know the more you look at it the better she looks. That two tone green and white is beautiful.
Is it a 5hp engine?

4hp....it was built from a Kit back in 1973 by a guy that was 6'4" tall. he licensed it and drove it to work (cop) for a few months. It sat for years and years until he died and I knew his widow very well so I was able to buy it for $50. It needed a $50 fuel valve and it was running again. The chrome needs redone but looks good if you keep up on the polish. It can get nasty if let go. I want to sell it but cannot bring myself to let some kid destroy it so I keep it around. It's worth a few grand in the right circles i'm told.

 

edit...did you notice it has beotch pegs?   :yukyuk:

You have no idea how popular those little buggers are down here right now.  They live to run the Dragon and run in packs.  I'm talking dozens of those little suckers at a time.  Its like the Shriner circus has gone daredevil. It sure is entertaining.

okay that made me laugh out loud....and I just had to go out and fire it up and take it for a spin...I was doing figure eights in the driveway and acting like a drunk Shriner...too much fun.

 

I still have to find a new mirror head for it as the old one broke....if insurance wasn't an issue I would license it up and take it on the open road....for a mile or two  :laugh:

I have always wanted to own a Mustang. A friend of my cousin has one in Chattanooga that he custom built a chopper frame for it. The dang thing "almost" sounds just like a old Harley. Very cool.

My $700 1990 Yamaha YX600 Radian bobber project. Runs and drives, only things I've done so far are a different tail light (previous owner had cheap tail light/plate bracket combo screwed into bottom of plastic seat pan, fell off first time I hit a decent bump at speed. I replaced it with an LED running/brake light with integrated turn signals, mounted on part of an old license plate which is then attached to L brackets bolted on by slightly longer bolts for the rear shocks. Looks kind of redneck, but works), and a new rear tire to replace the bald one that was on there. Bike is currently at the dealer getting the fork seals and front brakes done as I don't have the room, tools, or time to do it myself, and I have a new front tire arriving tomorrow that they will also install. Also have all the needed parts coming in this week to convert the ugly stock rectangle headlight setup to a 5 3/4" round light setup, using an LED "Daymaker" headlight. It's a fun little bike, and being a 600 it can scoot pretty well if I want it too.

Nice bikes you got there! Where did you buy your LED headlight?

Actually at the Harley shop I bought the running lights, one of those timing things.  Ran into a buddy at a concert that showed me his on his Road Glide.  I liked them.  Then the Harley shop had a sale on them that priced them much lower than Amazon so it was like an omen.  Not pictured in my pic, I bought the gray smoked lens covers too which matches my bike.  Liked the running lights so well, I went back and bought the LED brake turn signals for the rear and gray covers. 

 

They're bascially a series of LEDs, the outer rim is a circle of white LED's which burn while running.  When you hit the turn signal the white turns off and the orange lights up to indicate a turn. 

 

The headlight I bought off Amazon from actually a couple in FL that sells them specifically for Harley's by model.  Its really not a headlight but two 3,800 lumen led 3rd generation bulbs.   The 2014 Street Glide has a two bulb reflector.  Because the 2014 is a Rushmore with the newer electronics, they were plug and play. 

 

Just as a FYI, Gen 1 LEDs have strips of metal coming out from the bulb that act as heat sincs.  Gen II uses a fan behind the bulb.  Gen III and what this couple in FL cleverly does is use the Gen II fan type then they put braided armor on the connector cable which acts as an additional heat sinc while providing a little wiring protection. The LED's are specically designed, double sided, to work in large reflectors used by incandescent.  Added avanatage is the light looks much brighter during the day then the dedicated LED headlight assemblies which use much smaller reflectors and single sided/flat LEDs.  These LEDs come out to a point with two Cree high outpus on either side.  

 

Anyway, the running lights they make for all Harley models.  The newer bikes its plug and play, very fast and easy installation.  The older ones, require a resistor intallation under the seat so they don't blink really fast.  On my bike, a newer one, the indicator light flashes at about double speed but the lights don't. 

 

I got the idea for the headlight from a buddy who bought the Harley LED kit for his Softail after seeing how much better visiablity he had.  His would light up the dark tunnels on the Blueridge like it was daylight.  That's a big deal on the Blueride as they are old tunnels with no internal lights and its kind of difficult to pull your sunglasses off to go through a dozen tunnels.  The tailight I was inspired by actually the Indian which comes from the factory with LED tailights. 

 

The whole LED thing is they are extremely more bright.  I'd say notably bright but its way more than noticeable.  Its like going from dark to day.
