Went to Denver to pick up a one Dyno but the guy never responded back to me, I even asked 2door to email the guy because he lives in the area. Funny story, I called a guy in Denver about a frame but he already sold it but he gave me a number to another fellow and after we talked he was on the hunt for me and found the Von Franco. Lots of nice people left in this world!

Anyways as things go it was a good thing, I wound up buying 2 Dynos for the same price as the one I wanted. The only thing these bikes didn't have are the stock triple tree forks which is a bummer but hopefully I can locate some good triple tree forks somewhere.

All packed in my car lol.



First bike is what I think is a older model because the front badge is a sticker and not a plate.



Second bike is a Von Franco, it came with the fenders and I'll be selling those along with the fake tank to replenish the building fund lol.



So many folks here helped me get to this point Culvercityclassic was a tremendous help even though I know he has a busy schedule so thanks again Jeff.

Dan.

Today I modified, painted and installed the clutch arm to level out the cable pull to the clutch cable roller and added some Gentleman's Bling and also installed the vintage clutch lever.

Here is a shot of the Allen Blots in both the Puch Head and the Fred Head very easy to line up with out mis-aligning the bottom or head gaskets, I use a copper coating on my gaskets ( stick's in place ) and then put them in place before lowering the cylinder and head into the final position so that all holes line up, doesn't take a Rocket scientist to figure it out and even with the stock heads that have been moderately modified or decked, I think it took longer to figure how to modify tools for install then it did to just get the bolts and an Allen socket for the Torque Wrench.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


I think my bike wants a new carb and tank.

The nipple where the fuel line attaches at the carb popped out TWICE. I've never had that happen. Then when inspecting (on the side of the road, o'course) I noticed my petcock was loose. Like I could move it side to side loose. Goddonkey.

Get a Dax RT carb it is the best Dellorto Clone ever and in my opinion is better, very affordable too! and then get a petcock from S.B.P. problem solved. (basically forever)
