For those who remember it
« on: April 16, 2017, 09:29:51 PM »
 I once built a Dnepr MT11 with sidecar from parts.  For those of you who don't remember it, well I did.
 And built a machine-gun to mount on the sidecar.  I sold it for needed money when I moved back to the west coast.
 Ever since, I have missed that machine.
 Fast forward to today.  After dinner with an old girlfriend at a bike bar in Seneca on Hiway 6, I drove to the motorcycle shop where I had sold it.  The guy said it was collecting dust in a back shed and hadn't been touched in more than 4 years.  I asked and he said he would consider selling it back to me.
 I may have found my summer project.

If it's your old rig and you get it running again, will you keep it or sell it then?

  That's my Russian girl.  For 12 years now I have wondered what she has been doing.

That'll keep the ragers calm :evil:
When I was stationed on the Coast Guard Cutter Hornbeam I was starboard gunner with a 50 cal.
Man I loved shooting that beast.

  I have shot thousands of rounds through a Ma deuce in my tours in the Army and Coast Guard.
 That's why the gun on the bike resembles one.
 One night I put 400 rounds in the bottom of a 60 foot fishing boat.  I would wait for the boat to roll in the swell,
then stitch it close to the keel before it rolled upright.  At about 100 yards range, I could see the bullets going in where I aimed.  It took all night before it finally sank.  I think it may have been smuggling a load of styrofoam.
