The Flathead UL 1947 ready to go…

During this expedition I have reflect, why I’m as crazy about this old bikes as I am.

More than one time I have noticed the project run one step back rather the other way around. Without good contacts and friends, new and old, as well the old parts I had kept in my garage for years, this bike should not have been ready…at least not in this condition.

The feeling I have now after I spent lots of time in my garage and can fire up this old bike.…is fantastic, this is more than just a hobby; it’s a way of life.  

Now I have to concentrate on the sidecar….!

The speedometer has been restored by Perry Ruiter, in every detail perfect….

The Flathead 1947 project has now the missing clutch.....

The works going on and now the clutch side is almost there. Today I also start to mount a very nice police siren I found on E-Bay…….The flowing lines of the siren are nice formed into a whole to the shape of the frame.

Elmia Custom Motor Show 2012

On Friday I visited Elmia Custom Motor Show. This time it was an incredible mixture of cool Motorcycles, Muscle Cars, Pickups and Hot Rods. Lots of visitors who carry out a very limited potential to take photos….  

Reading Standard Model 20T 1920

Elvis theme - for some of the visitors I believe the most exciting part of the Motor Show was to visit the temporary built up copy of Graceland!
