I really enjoy riding this bike. It's my go-to bike, now that the Vespa is being redone. I gave it a kind of scrambler look, maybe a flat tracker? This whole idea was brought on by the front tire. The PO had just put on a new chunky front tire, for whatever reason, but I went with it, adding a rear knobby as well. I cut the rear end off a bit, and fabricated the rear to match the seat curvature. I added an electric seat latch with a hidden button under the seat to release it, but only with the k...

Datsun 620 Pickup

Great little truck in a sea of bohemoths. Yes, only about 16 mpg. Yes, it needs a 5 speed (this one has a 4 speed), Yes, it needs the KingCab for it to reasonably comfortable for anyone over 5'8" , but it runs great, gets a ton of compliments where ever I go. It's a great conversation starter. I don't know how many people have come up to me and said, "Hey, I had one of those!" They ran this model from '72 - '79, the last couple of years, from this run, most of those trucks came with a 5 speed a...

This P200E I've had for a few years. I've been watching the YouTube videos that Steve and Robot put out from Scooterwest, on complete Vespa rebuilds. They have a P200E in white that they totally rebuilt and filmed the whole process. It's very helpful if you've never done a complete restoration before. So, I got this scoot from this guy, a friend of my wife. Someone gave him this scooter and he never registered it, or even put it in non-op. This one, a California P200E, came with the BBq rack...

Just got this RD400. It's a '78 in Yamaha Yellow Livery. It doesn't have the airbox, it's podded, and the oil injection system was disconnected from the carbs, it's a pre-mix. I see some leaks, so I'll probably go into the motor this summer. It didn't even have a kickstand when I got it. I don't know what the previous owner was doing when he went for a ride, he must have never got off the bike when he was out and about. I'm going to keep the body and frame pretty much intact. I got new controls,...
