Yeah, me,too. What I don't particularly like is all the cleaning, prepping, sanding, etc.
I *love* assembly..

You have your hands full! at least it is mostly all there, it will be lovely when done.

If you run out of time you can swap the red one I am selling, no one will know. :grin:

It's a '40 four cylinder. The owner bought a factory, period correct sidecar to hang on it. I've put it together already and driven it. Now I've disassembled it to have the mounts that I made powder coated and the sidecar body and fender restored and painted to match. It'll be a she stopper when it's finished.

 :bow: :bow: wow do you work fast! it looks fantastic.

I have finally got back to finishing of the last of the work to get my 750 S3 done, got all the lights, horn, starter, etc... working, needed to add a ground to the rear signal lights, came back home after a couple days on the road for business and the battery is stone dead, damn! got a short somewhere, and every bit of the wiring is brand new except for the 40 year old switches and the original coils, where to start? Did I mention how much I hate, I mean really hate electrical!
Joe if you were closer I would ship the S3 to you to sort out where that damn smoke leaks out.

Hmmm ... now that may be one heck of an idea, tune my Sport and get the S3 sorted. It's damn cold here though, spring time, ride the rockies after?

It snows in New Jersey :tongue:

I want to end up in a place where it never snows hardly ever snows, but no nasty bugs or poisonous snakes, or man eating reptiles, near to an ocean but without the hurricanes or tidal waves to contend with, the natives are friendly and I don't need to hide behind a gated and guarded fortress with the locals calling for death to the infidel!  :violent1:

If such a place exists please let me know, I will pack up my bikes and tools and plan my escape.
