Hey Ruger 44
Freedom is a word sometimes used in strange ways. Can you own a Ruger (.44) in the Netherlands? I won't ask if you have one. I am a Ruger fan since before 16 years old, now nearly 65. I have a .22 Single Six, .22 MKII, and a 9mmPK85. I started on a Yamaha 250cc in 1969 and still have it (I would love to redo it) and went to a 1965 Norton Atlas. It handled great, was fast and I loved it. But the Honda CB750's would leave me behind every time. My Norton would vibrate the fillings out of your teeth, and twice had developed cracks in the fuel tank, once in the oil tank. I sold it and rode a BMW R60/5 which was the best I ever had. I sold it to buy a Goldwing. I got hit by a car and then after a long time went to a Honda CX500 that I gave to my friend. I have a '72 CB750 all original in the garage. It has less than 13,000 miles. I would love to get it back running too.
I hope you enjoy reading this forum. I am glad I found it. I don't know if I will ever complete by motorbike project or not, but I really enjoy the forum. I am starting over again with mounting the engine and sprocket.
