Look, I haven't mentioned Zeus, Buddah, or some religion.

Quote from: Icarus on October 28, 2023, 02:44:06 AMI sold a bunch of NSU Quickly (their model designation) mopeds in the college town of Gainesville Florida. They were 49 cc bikes that routinely blew off Cushmans at traffic light drags.. That was back in the dark ages. The little Quickly could still hold it's own as a town scooter. But what the hell, all the powered little bikes are now electric. They are quiet and they do not make smoke out the exhaust pipe. They do make smoke when recharging batteries and burning down garages and apartment buildings. I have a city with miles of paved bicycle and walking/running paths One of those runs along the side of my front yard. I see quite few young dudes riding a one wheeled electric skateboard sort of thing. They go fast as a bandit and the riders appear to be in total control. Amazing! I am too damned old to understand vehicles of that sort.The Power wagons have six cylinder flathead engines that are believed to be most reliable. The ultra motivated Power Wagon guys are likely to replace the flathead with a Cummins diesel. There are listings on the internet that offer refurbished diesel powered ones of those dinosaurs for incredible prices like 75 to 100K. Sheesh! Most of the stock, operable ones, are priced in ranges of 15 to 40K if they are reasonably rust free and intact. There are wicked big winches on all of them. To pull them out of the mud I suppose. I have zero interest in beasts of that sort. There ought to be a LSR class for stock power wagons..........maybe 48 MPH ?

QuoteThey are chromed but the chrome is too far gone. T140 panels with the square hole but i will be welding the hole up and removing the chrome then paint black with the new script. I also have to drill for the ignition switch but at £10 a pair i had to buy them. The new Michelin tube at £5 was good and its going on the front when i fit my replacement wheel with the stainless spokes and extended brake arms.There were a lot of parts there this time for all makes. Two TR5Ts in one stall at £4200 and £4700 which seemed low priced. Needing a fair bit of work but most of these sell at near £7000 when built
