Re: Norton Model 99

Dang. That's big thinking applied to (sort of) small stuff. Really nice result, G.

Was your objection to the stock manifold angle purely in terms of looks, or do you envisage a functional...

Re: I'm New Here???

Mm. That's a mightyfine bike altogether. Did you make the exhaust? I don't think I've seen that approach before, and it's a nice setup.

Also: Welcome. Or double welcome, again, whatever.

Re: Norton Model 99

Hey, Goldy, whatta you think of this Atlas? I like it for its understatement. That is: It's little bit gaudy here and there, but mostly it looks like a well cleaned up near-stocker. (Yeah, I realize...

Re: let's talk seats for bit

[Why didn't bikes like Hirschberg's catch on in a big way? Too stock-looking? Or people who liked them bought Superglides instead? Or what?

Sorry, don't mean to pull this thread off track. I'll...

Re: vintage pics o' the day

DANG. Thanks for posting those up. Did you just say everything you know about the Hendersons, or do you (for instance) whether they were prototypes that never went into production? 'Cause the earlier...

Re: Haven't been here for a while.

If you don't mind my asking, what is the first bit to make pavement contact if you go into a corner a little too hot, or the corner radius diminishes partway through?

Just curious, no subtext.

What Elektron just said? I ... uh, duh ... I say it too. That's a really capable-looking motorsickle, and pretty as hell too.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Those are supercool. But don't they need about 150,000 speed holes to look finished?

Kidding. Speed holes would dink up their, uh, muted refinement and look cheap.

Hoof, did your Manx have a roadgoing transmission w/kickstarter, or did you have to bump it?

Pipes look long to me as well. Opinions aren't quite like assholes, though. We only get one each of the latter.

I expect it to work fine, too: why wouldn't it? That's really good, thanks for the show & tell.

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

I apologize for venting. It took a while to convince myself that that was what I was doing, but I managed it eventually. Congratulate me if you like, I don't mind.

Re: Forward control id

Sorry to say I can't help with your question, but those controls are sure nicely designed. They beg the question "Why didn't every mfgr make them that way?".

Re: 41 el

Real nicely executed cottonmouth on the tank. I can't see all of the lettering on the serpent's belly in your pics. What's it say? -- "Paradise Costs Money" or something?

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

WHOA!

I'm in danger of overcomplimenting your work, which would make you neurotic. "Whoa" was not a compliment, just an outburst.

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

What was your reasoning in running a single carb? Anything beyond "simple to tune"?

Re: 41 el

Very nice, rhys!

So you're not gonna get into the engine, or not far in? I guess you know & trust the PO, huh? Anyway: nice find, good purchase, I'm happy for your good fortune.

I can't resist. *Nothing's* wrong with it. Bad-ass and beautiful.
