Looks good Mike. Is that a clevis up top? To allow a bit of "give/flex"?
very little if any, I have it there for the time being, I want to start the 360 soon, will change that out when I can, it was on an engine puller and worked for me
Nice one the same way we did it back in the 80s. About the steering box im fiddling around with a rack and pinion from a volvo 240. And it seems like it going to fit another one i been told is from old 80 early 90s bmw 5 series. And with the steering box out of they way. The 67 and up a body headers almost fit . I know welding and bending and some more work will be nessecery. and of course a B&M shifter to eliminate the shifter wires or dont know what its called but the pins and stuff for the shifter. if you have a never auto trans than the stock one. and a hump in the crossmember on the right side of the car. Yes i will post photos of it i a neer future of my progress on the 64 dart. But the wether is working aganst me its snowing like f###k here and its cooooold. And the old every day chevy pick is broke again. Yes its a chevy but coulnt back on the deal i payed 60 bucks for the hole chabang. Sorry dropt the subject again. Take care and have a good one Jeppe swede
Addressing this on this beautiful Thursday I am having here, just a little to close for my comfort. Pictures of completion to be posted today. 50 degrees here now, 66 for the high. May even get me a bike ride in on some old old back country gravel roads. Everyone have a great day
Steering shaft is done and clears the headers now. Looks like the radiator that Tony Fields had ordered for his 67 Barracuda will fit, he ended up buying an aluminum one and gifted me this one, so looks like an older year model water pump is in order.
Getting closer Mike. Looking good
thank you Mike, I did take a break away from everything and took a fun ride, 73 degree day you know I had to Mike , stopped and enjoyed talking to a friend for a few minutes then back home .
Who climbed in the engine bay and has their head sticking up???? Don't close the hood until they get out... LOL!!!
I took pictures to measure to make sure my carb and breather has room for my hood .
Spent some time with my sons, we had the run of where my son Creed works today and took advantage of his skills and tools on hand. Made my own heat shield, yep, stainless . Don't know what gage it is but I can't bend it, when these men are busying I leave them alone.
Top bolts are in and the bottom is setting on a rubber gasket, I believe I am good to go and the hood should fit. I hope, but looks like it. Anyone needing the cut out specks for Hooker super comps 66 fender well headers, in the last picture
thank you , you have been great help on this update on Victoria
Mike....in post 282, what size bike is that? I know it's a Kawasaki KDX? maybe? Just couldn't get the pic blowed up enough to see what size motor. Nice bike!!!
Thank you, it is a 2020 KLX 230 , top speed is 77 mph, I have 600 miles on it now, all on pavement, 6 speed fuel injection, no carburetor, traction control as well, great bike for my size to run to town or go grab breakfast or lunch, it keeps me young
The very first ever new driver I have ever bought in my life for myself
Is that on 1 wheel or 2?
Thanks Mike. Nice little bike! I’m a sucker for that Kawasaki green...lol. The first NEW vehicle purchase for me as well, was a 1995 Kawasaki ZX9R, and it was that same green. Bought it at 38 years old, and it was a much better bike than I was a rider. Had to sell it cause I was getting too brave with it! I have a 74 model Suzuki TS-185 street and trail that is nice....other than the motor being locked up. Been thinking about selling it and buying something new along the lines of your bike.
only two if it's in good shape those dealers pay well for those years of bikes for display, I have three dealers here and all of them have older bike being displayed, one has a nice 250 Honda elsinore, not for sale
Mike....you said that bike fits you well for your size, and that is important. What was it Roy D. Mercer said? "Just how big of a boy are you, anyway?" LOL. I'm 6', and 225....give or take a few biscuits, and the TS-185 fits me well.
I would love to have another large street and trail. I loved my old DRZ 400, all I have now is an old Honda 100, but the Honda is mint and runs great with only 270 actual miles, 45 mph top speed will get me run over. Thinking of buying a new CRF250L to put around on.
