    That is a great score to have that many bikes at one time. I would love to have a diesel bike like that. I own a 1996 Honda 600R that came from a factory sponcerd racer. I can no longer ride but I still love bikes.

    Welcome home. Keep us posted on your progress with the bikes. I've contemplated trying to get one of those. Very good posts.

    Uncle must be surplusing 2340-01-530-9371 MULTI-FUEL MOTORCYCLE . All have multiple requests by various state surplus offices (so in a few years they will then be sold off to the public in order support their lifestyle).

    I'm back in the US. I plan on getting two of the bikes done. I just grabbed another one of the LE auction bikes from storage to start work on while I wait for some engine work to be completed on the other one. I won't get to mine for awhile. It looks like the UIC code is from 1/6 2D Marine Division. It only has 837 miles on it.

    I rebuilt the carb today. The plan is to replace the fluids, install a Deka battery and see if I can get the engine to crank. Once that's successful then I'll begin replacing and fixing everything else. I got a awesome 465 rear shock from progressive. Then it's just paint and minor parts like brake pads, chain, sprockets, tires, etc. I spent the last few months in Iraq ordering parts and a few of my buddies were trying to hand me checks for one of the bikes. Once this one is done it's onto another of the LE auction bikes (which seems like it's about to start) and then my buddies.

    Hi the m1030b1 that I got from the us military ran but lacked power at 70 plus mph found valve timing out a couple of teeth and cam to cam buckets clearance to small on two valves so got shims surface ground to bring gaps back to tolerance and this was straight out the us military so worth checking.
    a good mod is to buy a new mixture screw that's longer with a small bar through it so can adjust it easier otherwise you struggle and get burnt fingers as it is directly above the exhaust pipe.
    the other thing to look for is the back of the air filter housing plastic housing runs close to the exhaust and melts so I made a thin aluminium shield the same contours as the rear of air box and pop riveted on works a treat,so at least look at rear of air box to see if it has heat damage.

    Good luck on letting them go after you rebuild them. I had the same plan but after rebuilding a couple I did not want to let them go. So I think my new plan is to sell off the whole lot and let somebody else do it.

    Today I went ahead and traced the electrical from the battery to the ignition switch and cleaned all of the connections and replaced those crappy fuses. I will eventually switch over to the blade type once I get this bike up and running. I finally got the lights and black out lights to come on once the key is turned to the run position. I filled up the fuel tank and got a minor leak from the fuel petcock. I need a new seal but I’m thinking about switching to the Raptor petcock from Eagle Mike. I did get the bike to crank but it won’t turn over. This could be due to the clutch safety switch. I can’t get the clutch lever to compress. I think the cable is hung up or just bad. I’ll take it off and try another one tomorrow. The bike is in neutral and the neutral light is on. It could also be the carburetor that I just rebuilt as well.

    I got the high beams and turn signals to work. The high beam switch takes some playing with the get the high beams on. It may be the switch or I may just need to clean it up a bit. I am waiting on a Raptor fuel petcock and a carb rebuild kit so I’ll take a few days off this bike. While waiting I finally got the pivot bolt out. I took it to a local shop and they used a press and heat but only got it to move about 5 inches. I was able to cut the bolt on the left side first and then shift over the bearing sleeve to the left to cut the right side. I have a replacement pivot bolt and lever. This was a tough one to cut with a hacksaw. I'll try to paint the frame with Rapco 686 Tan to test it out.

    First things first. Thank you for adding me to this forum.
    Can someone give me an idea of what a M1030M1 that has the 2009 updates in great condition is worth?
    Thanks in advance
