    Gotta love the simplicity of the look of pre-war(I) bikes, but they're a lot more complicated than they look, that's for sure. Adjustable timing, plunger oilers etc :)

    btw, psst, you know you can put up to 5 pics in a post eh? :p That's including any smiley faces, so ppl don't spam walls of the weldy guy or something, heh heh.

    One lives and learns. Not so very long ago, I was living in a cave and bashing rocks together, look at me now, bashing computers together.

    I just find them on the net. As for knowledge, it's all out there. I'm just the nerd who finds it. And I want one of those AU42A Motoconforts, they're beautiful.
