    I got the tune up finished up and went for a buzz and got caught in the rain, sure was glad I had a fairing. She's running AWESOME, I still need to sync the carbs, but she runs better than ever now!! Had a break in the rain so I...

    I have repaired it and even took it out for a test ride with the new free wheel on the left side pedals. I am happy with the 30 tooth chain ring that replaced the stock 37 tooth chain ring as well. Here's a picture of the bottom bracket...

    These PPV's which stands for People Powered Vehicle are extremely rare. This one was made in 1973. I simply had to have it when I found it. After about 6 hours of work repairing it from it's decades of storage I actually took it out for...

    I've already cut the tabs down an additional two inches and just need to weld a bolt onto the tab. Initially I had a nut welded on, but with the shorter length of the tab, I need to go with the bolt instead. There is a previous repair...

    For me... too many people make a big deal out of the yellow bikes. I'll have mine in red please. Oh... I'd paint that one also!

    1976 GL1000 Windjammer III w/Saddlebags & Burro trailer restoration

    I finally got up off the couch and started the process of tackling getting my '76 GL1000 on the road. Secured my motorcycle learners permit and will have my title straightened out. Seems as if back in the day, they though the frame...

    One of the WJ3's I've acquired had the rectangular lights installed and they are very short. I've re-purposed them for a rear mount, but you can see how short they are in these pics. Unfortunately welding is not in my skillset, so I...

    "Dog operating camera" HAH! I thought the same thing when reviewing the pics. Or, "where is that kid of mine? This is why we HAD her"! The results are everything I'd hoped for. Steering as light as the raked trees, but everything is...

    That's some of the work I still need to do... shorten the stems. I want to get them tucked in a little better.

    Turbodog, could I talk you into some detail shots of your leading leg adapters? I've done the same thing on my Kawasaki Voyager 1300 and they work quite well to reduce steering effort. Did yours work out as you had hoped? Did the...

    Well, the big day arrived... I loaded up my wife and dog and took them for an inaugural ride.... to the dog park, of course! [IMG] [IMG] Both settled in quickly and enjoyed the ride. Many more adventures to come!

    Might just be me, however, the turn signals seem to stick out quite a ways. I'd look at narrowing them up some. DOT rules say they need to be at least 16" apart (center to center) and 4" from the headlight (edge to edge.) OEM on a...

    Worked most of the day on my solo tour pack setup and am happy with the results. I will have to ride around for a week or so with it to fine tune the position. I only had 1 vinyl coated clamp the right size and need to pickup another,...

    Sucess. All remaining is minor adjustments on position and connecting the lights.
