Had a chance to get this gem up and running, Has some small issues with the fuel system, guess that's what happens when things sit with gas still in them!! Hopefully in a few weeks I'll take it for a spin around the compound. Working on this for a friend of the Museum, been almost 10 years since it ran. They were not made for modern sized men!

Find a copy of "Street Rodder" and order up some go fast parts for that old flathead. 250hp would be a nice #.

The guy that restored this was anal about keeping things as original as possible, the only thing I see that isn't "stock " or a repro is the ign coil. It is a neat little carrier, I think he maybe wants to sell it.

Did I not see that machine stalled on the beach on D Day?
The beach master hit it with his walking stick to get it running.
Where is that movie?

HOW did you find the pic?!

Reminding me that on one of the beaches that day there was a British colonel with a bag-piper if I remember right.
