    Hey this is Rich--Posting is new for me though I've looked at the site before for info etc....I've wanted a M/B since I was a kid and my wife liked the idea for a while and her dad built her one. Well, I've been maintaining it for about two years, already had my own ideas and so I did something about it. Hence you get my rig thats shown in my user photos, which I just ... well, over the last 2 years built from parts acquired from all over the place--though the motor was bought locally from a kid who had the chain pop and gave up after first ride....Broken in yet? doubtful, By the way, can you tell with some kind of a test?.... Just started it for the first time yesterday and seems pretty good - minus some refinement and tuning. Went with #41 chain after a failed attempt at 415H....didn't want to change the drive sprocket area to fit. So I have a spare 415H lying here somewhere if anyone wants it or some of the other odds and ends I have =) Had to cut the fender for the chain.... Looking into getting some headlight action....maybe a tank....meh, more later....

    Welcome to the forum Ras, glad you joined us.

    Nice looking ride (^)

    I like the color of the fenders, reminds of my Grandfathers 61 F-150 when me and my Dad painted it for him that color.

    Well, gotta say the blue was luck of the draw and started with a pair of blue pedals i later gave up on. They came up for sale -- they are a monark fender - and I thought they would fit the frame and I liked em'....so here they are...decent shape except I had to cut the other side for drive train....got a monark rear reflector on the rear fender too (small type)...Thanks again!
