    Re: New Marlin owner

    My opinion, for what its worth. Do what you have to to get it running and put some miles on it. Then you will know what it needs and you will know a lot more about it.

    Re: Motorbike Milly

    Re: Unfinished Sportster on eBay

    If you have the skills why not? But do not underestimate the task. The V8 is probably recoverable and saleable. Or rebuild and complete the Sportster as it is and sell the BMW bits. For what it is...

    No engine pictures. Not properly registered could be a big problem. It does look like a barn find maybe a relative's old car. I wonder if the seller is reading this?

    Oh, I know that feeling, maybe we made someone think it was a good idea and they drove down and bought it. With a bit of luck we will hear from them soon. Now we wait for the next dreamboat. Dave
