    oh, hopefully your American system is somewhat lenient towards classics. Unlike our bloody system

    They are very lenient you can register about any classic car. No inspection or anything at least where I live in america

    how? I mean i guess kinda, but not really. its killing the modern muscle car thing but not classics. they cant ban the sales of used gas cars, that would ruin the economy worse than covid

    i saw a new defender two door (90) at the dealership near my grandparents house. i had no idea they came to the usa yet. i see the four door all the time but not the two door yet. it looks nice and better in my opinion, my defender-y than the four door which looks like a modern range rover.

    Also saw my second rs6 avant. and when i was on the highway on my way to my grandparent's house, there was an unofficial mk4 volkswagen gang, with a base golf, an std golf, and a jetta vr4. the std golf was driving the most crazy and puffing big black smoke everywhere.

    For anyone who is curious what I have been up to at 3 and 4 in the morning... I did this the other day.

    34B494FE-8398-46F8-9F5C-7A25ECEE02D0.jpeg 0A9E5697-7957-4223-AEBC-65588DA4EF6B.jpeg DF72E303-7A6C-477B-80CA-F840AE189D3A.jpeg 900D0C97-3F12-47EA-B8E3-8BCC6F59ABE7.jpeg 80254B9B-0AA9-4814-8246-5F73C4C190DE.jpeg 7A834DA7-1917-4E84-85B0-F8E2047C884C.jpeg D8D2580A-3C98-4AEA-A07F-2B218A6C796E.jpeg

    Managed to get my engine swapped into my Vette, wired up, and fired up for the first time the other day.

    Videos of it running can be seen here.

    Gotten back to work on my '84 XV1000 project now that the snow's melted away, most everything's taken off and getting reconditioned while I await the oil seals to pull the engine apart for a full rebuild.

    I've got a single-carb intake coming in for it, and she's getting whitewalls. I'm not going to spoil what color she's gonna be when finished, but it's not going to be red anymore :b



    First picture is when I first brought it back from the junkyard, last picture is the most recent one. Since then I've removed all the handlebar controls and removed most of the wiring loom, I'll be able to pull it out once I drop the motor. My Auxiliary fuel tank has a busted outlet port, and I have no idea if the fuel pump works, so depending on whether I can source a cheap replacement tank, I may just go full monkey and gravity feed it with a slightly over-diameter fuel line to compensate. No clue whether my wiring loom works either, I want to get the engine sorted before I tackle that, but it looks good and I've been able to identify all the connectors from my Clymer are there.

    hopefully within the month I'll have an almost-ready bike, but crap happens and I was supposed to have this ready last fall :b
