Default Cooper & Ludwig

These pics are of the current state of production of mine and my friend JC's bike. He has the butch manly frame, I have the girly one. My engine mount is made and fitted, but we ran out of time to sort out the supports for it.

So he's the lad who has to fight to get his leg over the motor and exhaust while fighting to keep his balance............. and you aren't.

Good looking bikes.

I was thinking the same thing.

or

Cold beer, hot muffler= bad night, lol.

Plus, step threw frames are the way to go when possible IMHO. Aside from the above, just easier.

Once the Mk1 is out of the way, there will be a pause for reflection, and then a possible Mk2. Which might be like this Lavalette, but then if I can sort out an axlemount like a VAP motor, perhaps not.

The Mk2 looks great. Hope you don't get caught up like Silverbear and I have. Mk1 barely has the engine turning over and we're on the Mk6.
