  1. Ah, thank you. There were quite a few manufacturers in New York state in the 20s & 30s, some just a flash in the pan. Dan
  2. If I could I would, thanks for the help.
  3. Troy had a lot of stuff going on until recently, but they had a Stude factory? Or was this a 1914 "Tuner Shop"? Dan
  4. If it's free, you should tell us where it is. If it's not free, please tell me where it is. Do you have any photos? Thanx.
  5. From the BatVan. http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/articles/holy-challenge-batvan/
  6. My wife's grandmother had a 1936 LaSalle six wheel hears on her farm for years, Crazy Uncle sold it for beer money.....
  7. It's sacrilege in some parts of the World, but would I get knuckled up for making that a Speedster?
  8. Not mine, not affiliated; just thought this was a decent price for all the work that's done Located in Vermont. . http://burlington.craigslist.org/cto/4568655653.html
  9. I usually feel apprehensive when one joins a group of like minded folk, all with similar interests and offers something desirable but has the proviso to "Email for pics", or "Hey, shoot me a PM for all the information you will need to make a decision about parting with your hard earned dollars". Probably a nice car Aunt Helen, but you are selling a car, why do we have to do the work?
  10. My son's first car (he was 16) was a 1963 Buick Special, 315 aluminum V8. The car was 40 years old at the time. No issues, no worries, sturdier than a Civic and had a Fubaba exhaust. I wouldn't be afraid of a classic daily driver.
  11. I have a 2002 BMW K-1200LT my wife made me buy. No, really. "If we're going to retire, you need to gat a nicer motorcycle". Took me an hour. I also have a 1976 BMW R-90s clone. R-90 with the S stuff added. Fairing, seat, dual discs up front, the Bing carbs were replace with flat slide Mikuni, progressive springs front and back. The exhaust has been "liberated", just a burble; not enough to be annoying. Paint is a mid-90s Porsche grey metalllic.
  12. ... and all those comedians out of work.
  13. The suspension looks like the 1920 Buick frame RLee is selling on the For Sale area.
  14. Appear to be cantilever up front too. I am a machinist/toolmaker and a nuts & bolts kinda guy, but I think I would need more to start a project. I'm not sure if I have the resources to dig up the necessary components to make that frame roll, steer and stop. Thoughts? Dan
  15. Is it still in Syracuse? I retire in a month and my wife says I can't unless I have a project; I'd like to build a Speedster. Dan
  16. Fiat X-1/9, $20 new. http://www.autoricambi.us/product/RE3-187/Emblem---FIAT---Hood-or-Trunk---Silver/
  17. Jonlberg, I'm thinking about building a Speedster, so if you have a chance to purchase this frame, let me know. Dan
  18. The chains from the frame to the rear axle, think that's stock? They would keep the frame from leaning too far in one direction?
  19. Can someone tell me about these wheels? Is that a wire cover bolter onto a disc wheel or is that actually a wire wheel?
  20. The building five years ago, it has changed hands a number of times.
