Default Re: Yet Another Canadian... Eh!

Thank you, I agree it does have vintage/classic lines I thought?. That is the high mileage motor in the Nirve photo. I brought it up to work with me this time to go thru, detail, and use as template for the new bike. New motor should be delivered this week and once back home I will paint it up as well. Here are the two bikes that this motor propelled to 2550 miles. Green one made 1800 miles before down tube showed fractures so I built the yellow one and transplanted the motor into it for the rest of miles. Last photo is the Nirve Kilroy that I will, I think, go 4 stroke and shift kit. {and a 3 speed rear hub} Already been to war surplus store for panniers and military accessories and will change markings to reflect RCAF tribute, "mock" messenger bike.
