Couple of them

Just finished this - back half of a 68 C20 that I built a flatbed and stakesides for - need to get rid of a lot of leafs this weekend.

And the true winter project - 82 Kawasaki 750 LTD that is going to get a café racer type treatment. Needs all 4 carbs gone through and new tires, but otherwise is pretty decent mechanically.

And I have to clean the shop up, it looks like a pit in all those pictures ;)

@oldjeep - nice projects - similarly was going to do that to my R80/7 bimmer but decided to leave it be after driving a few cafe'd bikes that hadn't had the tanks modified they just didn't do it for me.

 

I've also been looking for a trailer like that to build a "PTO" drive trailer for use around my property - rear axle with PTO shaft up to the tractor and probably a few layers of belt drive reduction so that the trailer can really crawl its way out when loaded.

Building a 36 ft toy hauler conversion...5500 pound lift in the back, half race car hauler (or my Edge, dirt bikes, snowmobiles etc) half living quarters. Going on my Kenworth T-600 chassis. Adding 17 feet of frame, moving the drive axle back 12 feet and adding a 20K tag axle (for more braking power). 4th (and last) one I’ve built...

You guys make fun but I always use fresh stainless as soon as I get a tiny bit of corrosion. Plenty of skis came through my workshop so having a thorough and complete collection of Hardware is important.

I sent my 93 Ramlin trailer off to Ramlin for a full rebuild and modification. Paint trailer to match boat. That was the morning before my accident. In the meantime I was supposed to finish up some minor repairs and put removable platform brackets on my ‘76 Ski Nautique so I could get both boats in my garage by Dec 1. Thanks to my bum leg this has been put off even longer than I already have.

Swapped out the motor on the M5 for another used motor. Old motor was developing some valve float on one cylinder at higher RPMs w/misfires and for now it's far more economical to put another motor in then to rebuild it (a good rebuild on these is about $18K). Plus I now have 2 motors. This was quite the project but it'll keep this old girl on the road.
