    Possible new M51 owner!

    Talked to the gentleman today. Sounds like its biggest issue is it needs a rear wheel cylinder so no brakes. 1952 apparently. He is going to go look at its condition and get back with me and we'll go from there.

    A lot has happened since then...It's funny how the more things change the more some stay the same.

    Thanks for the info, guys! Yeah, I'm aware of the single circuit brake system and how inherently sketchy those are known to be. Other people have already suggested I put M939 series axles/air brakes under it. I had my introduction to driving a manual in a Deuce with no brakes. Yeah, my...

    Possible new M51 owner!

    I looked on Google Streetview, never updated since 2011 in that area, and lo and behold, it was there, in the driveway of the house directly behind where we lived. It's since been moved to an adjacent piece of property he doesn't own so it's moved at least once since then.
