So, things are a bit quiet out on the street, but not in the workshop. I’ve been keeping busy working on my projects.My last one was inspired by something I heard from Clinton. That was painting something then oven baking it. He did his wheels, but for me, it was cleaning up an expansion pipe for my PK 50. I’m happy the way it turned out. What have you been up to?…See More

Rolf replied to paul bishop's discussion Carburettor upgrade
