A few more shots, Twingle with custom sidecar like a boat.

(engine Chinese replica of BMW, not sure if any is WWII vintage, but from a distance, looks real).

Love the 250 Scrambler, that’s what mine will look like when done. They have a speedo and tach on it, very cool!!!!

Ha!!! Does it sound pretty decent when it runs? I’ve done nothing but disassemble mine so I haven’t heard it run yet. This spring it’ll start going back together and I’ll get yo hear it.

I should provide context for this statement: in those early scrambler years the bike didn’t come with a battery, brake light, speedo or tach. I’m even finding some years didn’t have a choke or an engine cutoff switch. So this one with the speedo and tach are aftermarket or “factory” aftermarket items which are rare and very sought after.

I’ll see if I can get Sir Richard to video it running. Would be a treat.
