      Nice Chief, Clae! Not sure what your end goal is, Roger put a nice one together :
      Pisten Bulley is Harry Roberts in Vermont.

        WOW!! those are nice.. really nice bikes in the thread above. thanks pisten-bully.

        well as far as the one i have its in pretty good shape considering its age. ive spent a good bit at starklite getting new wiring and mechanical parts. i dont think its to far off from running however running well is another thing. since i had to redo all the wiring i did go with the 12v system. everything ive read and the people ive talked to did steer me in that direction.

        only things i really need after that are fenders and a speedometer. the fenders are fiberglass so i know they arent original and the speedometer is missing.

        end goal is a ridable machine pretty much..

                thanks for the welcome everyone,
                ya, it should be nice when completed. im having a hell of a time locating metal fenders thus far. lucky theres really no rush i guess the fiberglass ones will do until i find some.
                i was met with a little sticker shock with the speedometers.. think im going to take my time and look around a bit.

                    indeed is a possibility. nothings ever off the table. im on a waiting list for a speedo with starklite. i look forward to the days of going to swap meets and things when this dam covid crap goes away
