 As added incentive , Chuckie will entertain us with stories of his dear departed friend Wrong Way Corwin at Cedar Vale where we will award the bike to the raffle winner .

Pony express left Houston today with a delivery for the Caliph of Cedar Vale...the Sultan of Seedur Veil!

Should provide enough for some libations while pondering whether to use blue, purple or black duct tape on the seat!

Fun project!!

 Going with Zebra Stripe tape for that custom one-of-a-kind look  :shocked:

 Thanks Paul .

 OK , so Jeff has gone all shy on us again , here a few more details on the bike .

 She has a set of Hagon shocks that were installed a couple of years ago , and a new rear brake rotor installed about the same time .

 When we are done with the refurbishment she will have a new clutch , U joint , rear main seal , and if the bevel box needs attention we will deal with that also . She will have a new set of nice round black Shinko tyres also . In other words , the old girl will be ready to go for the proud new owner who wins her .

 Gonna repeat the contact info .

What kind of motor oil are we putting in?

Lots of folks, like Jessco, do not like sloppy slimey eggs.  Or weird motor oils.

Accentuate the positive;
Eliminate the negative;
Latch on to the affirmative;

 Hello Pete ,

 Oh hell , this is getting serious now , thanks , maybe we can coordinate something .

 

 The work will likely begin in mid to late August this year in Newton KS , just North of Wichita . The next Cedar Vale will be May 2019 .

Donation made!

I am hoping this can be a regular thread that shows the progress and work being done on the bike. A project thread if you will. That way the bike can be famous and help educate the masses on fixing it up. The fact that it is a fund raiser that could help our favorite forum and Cedar Vale to improve the rally experience is a big bonus.
The best part of riding a motorcycle is to tilt the horizon and to lift the front coming out of a corner and to drift the back end powering thru loose dirt and to catch a little air topping a hill and... yeah it's all good!

Not so easy or expensive when you're not in the USA.  I'm poised to contribute, but need a bank account number.  How hard is this?  I've paid Luap a few times this way.  Perhaps I send it to him, and he redistributes it to the fund?

 No , hold up , that can create a tax liability for Luap . If you are serious I will PM an account # .

I can think of a few ways for you to use those checks.

Besides these days you can order less than 500 at a time...

Nothing yet.  If it's too techno for you Dusty, send half your bank account number via email, and the other half post on this site or my alternative email of davegale@guzzigander.com.

Edit: or send me your telephone number via email.  I'll call you and get the account number verbally.

 I had it all typed out and right when I hit send the internet went out . Was hoping it came thru .

 Do you have international calling ? If so we can do it that way . Thanks for being patient Dave .

Dusty, it would be so easy if you'd join the 20th century and take Paypal.  :evil: Overseas stuff is a walk in the park.
