  2. Thank you AG for looking at my motorcycle posts.
  3. I just got back from Tulum where I did some snorkeling in a couple of cenotes with my grandkids, not far from Belize. Interesting mix of fresh and salt water fish.

  11. Roycroftbooksfromme1, thanks for your interest in my project. Check out my new post.

  21. That sounds good to me kanuckster. The spoke wheels must weigh 80 lbs each. Thanks for looking kanuckster and fifties50s.
  22. Thanks Walksoftly. Its a quiet little clatter with an occasional chug, very different then an old open pipe Harley.
  23. Check the Banjo Hangout. Some of the members are Gibson specialists.
  24. I'm having trouble getting the pictures from my phone that are in my computer onto this site.
  25. I just purchased a restored Hercules that looks very similar to the Economy hit miss engine in your picture. It produces 1.5 Hp and weighs 400lbs. Mine was made in 1919.
  26. Shovelhead USA forums

  33. Hi Jwendell. My car is a 2001 5 speed 2.5 Not sure on motor size. I haven't fired that little steam engine yet. I believe its from the 60s. the seller was a friend and assured me it ran.
  34. I have a blue one that I keep stashed and polished in my garage
  35. Thank you,Trgrubaugh
  36. I had one just like that 50 years ago. They are easy to work. Add a little water, make sure your igniter has a good flint for spark and add a little Bangsite(carbide powder available online)

  42. Thank you Virginia
