This is a discussion on the " What have you purchased recently ? " photo thread within the General forums, part of the Caferacer.net Forums category; this fuse ......
with my custom wiring loom and high watt ignition, I want to err on the side of caution this time
A $375 CL score. K.O. Lee surface grinder with a 6"x18" Walker electromagnetic chuck.
'69 Econoline shorty Display Van
(panel on street side, windows on curbside)
170ci straight six, 3spd TopLoader, 3.5 rear end, 10" Centerlines w/ Cobra GT's. Considering a Weber DGV, set of headers & discs up front.
Factory shipped as work van, so no interior, just driver seat. It's soon to get a pair of MB W123 seats for pilot/copilot, some paneling & sound deadening.
Door stickers show it came from John Day, OR, so very little rust & no major battle damage.
Suspect it was a RadioShack shop truck 'cause the panel side has moss/crud build up in the form of a RadioShack sign.
Second owner back was an aircraft mechanic & moto person. Has a nice platform right at the center rear bumper for bike ramp & tie-downs inside. Sweet!!
Haven't had any adventures yet. Still chasing down gremlins & tidying up the various systems.

Really neat bike. Needs a new starter sprag, timing belt, and some brake work. I feel like I got a really good deal at $700 considering most of the bike looks in amazing shape overall for it's age and intended use.
Any bike pic with a kelpie / cattledog / WTF, is a good day.
Danger, is my business."
