Default Re: I'm Restoring a late 40's Rocket - Then comes the motor....

That's a cool bike and an interesting one to study, from the belt drive to the never before seen by me sidewall generator in back. I see a frame modification in the engine compartment, an interesting engine component shroud and very much like how the motor fills up that cantilever frame. Has a kind of Whizzer look to it which sets it back a number of decades in appearance. It looks like it would be a terrific ride. Yes, a nice build thread would be great to follow. An American motor, imagine that. Are the aluminum ones still made in the USA? Seems like so few things are anymore.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
