Flathead 1947 UL project

The work to bring my old Flathead UL 1947 back on the road again has come to bee more current every day. The project started slow last winter....  

The engine as well as the gearbox has been restored by my friend JK.

The frame is now ready after a lot of repairs. So far the brakes have been totally overhauled and I have added a new sprocket to the rear drum.

The name Edsel reminds us of the big failure. Today recognized as a unique vehicle!

This 1959 Edsel Villager has still the original paint, original interior and has been maintained very well over the years. This low mileage Edsel was imported to Sweden unseen from Los Angeles CA, in the middle of 2000. My friend Håkan has been the owner since 2006. Under the hood is a 332 cui V8 engine mated to a two speed automatic gearbox. Among many options the car has roof rack and rear wheel moulding and chromed fender skirts.

Swap Veteran Classic

The weather forecast sad it should be summer temperatures and sunny weather the whole weekend. My friend Kurt and I had decided earlier this week to enjoy the very good weather for probably the last tour on our bikes for this season!

The atmosphere had another wish, to express for an attack of mega fog!  Anyhow we started our ride this morning but we both get wet before we arrived in Veteran Classic Swap in Mellerud. Probably of the now known reason there were not too many vendors but some good friends and nice cars.
