  2. Thank you Roycroftbooksfromme1 and everyone that loved my post.
  3. Your fish looks like something my daughter would make. She is an artist near Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
  4. That sounds good to me kanuckster. The spoke wheels must weigh 80 lbs each. Thanks for looking kanuckster and fifties50s.
  5. Thanks Walksoftly. Its a quiet little clatter with an occasional chug, very different then an old open pipe Harley.
  6. Check the Banjo Hangout. Some of the members are Gibson specialists.
  7. I'm having trouble getting the pictures from my phone that are in my computer onto this site.
  8. 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.
  9. Shovelhead USA forums
  10. Thanks Manikin and ttomtucker

  15. I had a friend from Wilkes-Barre growing up.He had an accent different from us guys from Philly.
  16. 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.
  17. I have a blue one that I keep stashed and polished in my garage
  18. Thank you,Trgrubaugh
  19. 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)

  24. I like that old Harley smell. The dripping is always a good indicator that it still has some oil in it.
  25. Thank you Virginia
  26. Good story. I'm gonna google it and see what the vine looks like today.

  33. We used to get these smaller sets when we were little. When we got older we got the bigger set. The little Hudak girls across the street would always eat them.
  34. I have the one in the middle(the dagger and rose, not the Hula girl). Scars from a misspent youth. Thanks for looking, Sean, Kerry, and Tom61.
