Re: I'm Restoring a late 40's Rocket - Then comes the motor....
Msrfan, my favorite bike accessory. 1954 I lived in a small one main street town in northern Ontario. They make a heck of a racket at 3am on a summers morning. My pal who was with me on that little escapade, father owned the hardware store and fortunately had sold enough of them that the town cop couldn't nail any one kid.
It was fun to look back and see all the lights come on in the apartments over the stores.
When it was mentioned in my parents bowling alley everone was looking at me.
Yep, they are loud. And a lot of fun.
