In the days of my youth, I was told what it means to be a man.

OK OK! The seat will go! along with the fairing and the trunk. I plan on a restore, not 100% but all the of vitals for sure. I did take it for a short ride and was impressed with it. There is nearly zero brake dive with that front end. Heavy as all hell but man, does it ride nice. The generator doesn't work so I don't have any lights but the magneto is fine so it runs.
Carb rebuild is in order. Anyway I don't even have a to do list made yet so please take it easy on me. ;)  Pics as I clean her up will come, I am a slow poster be patient.

You hit it on the head with a Denfeld solo! I'm not fagish or anything but I really want fringes around the seat.

Upside down, anything looks better than a hardlyableson.

I'm going to get the turkey ready now. I'm going to spatchcock & dry rub it.  :rotflmao:     really..........

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Alton Brown is our goto man around here when it comes to cooking. Ha!..come to think of it he drove a beemer during some of his regional cooking show thingies.
I really am a true Concours owner and fan so I included a pic to prove it  ;)

Here's some  with the fairing off.  I'm slow but I'll get her pretty again  :)







The Earles front was chromed by a previous owner, I think.
Man..I love that big headlight!!!
