    I've got two. Suzuki GS750 and a GS550, both 1978. The 750 I have had for about 20 years. The 550 I just finished rebuilding. Other than not pulling the engine apart, I took the bike down to every nut, bolt, and screw and...

    Ok, well, the order is placed. Let's see what happens. I'm hoping it all works out well. This bike and fairing are going to look amazing.

    Also, I come to find out that that hitch is not part of the Vetter package and I don't think I'll want it. Where could I look to selling it?

    So, this summer I got back the 1980 XS Eleven Special that my Mother bought new from the second owner that took fantastic care of. I rode on the back of this bike when I was a kid. My brother and I grew up on motorcycles with my...

    That's why they call it the "Harley Tax". Everything with Harley Davidson printed on it comes with a higher cost. Like $21T-shirts will cost $52 with the Harley Tax added on to the sale price.

    Found a Liberator here in Germany. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/harley-davidson-sovelhead-imperator-original-vetter-fairing/1574774046-306-21794 But that price - 1.500€ (about 1.800$) is a little bit toooooo much. Maybe...

    I actually have a sidecar rig now. It's an old Soviet Union Military Dnepr MT-11 sidecar motorcycle. It's great for local riding but it's slow, as all military vehicles are. The manual says 100Km is top speed but that's only for a very...

    Yeah, i drove 2 hours each way to look at this one. With a rented trailer in tow. You might say i was a motivated buyer by the time i laid eyes on it. $1400 IIRC. In retrospect not a bad deal. I assume you have seen the ones for sale on...

    I'd love to have a Vetter Terraplane sidecar but the only one I've found is 300 plus miles away from me, you can tell from the pictures it's a pile of junk, and he wants $2,200 firm for it. It's also missing the hardware for connecting...
