Too much to bare...
The loss of Dennis Hopper is great.
I truly hated Easy Rider, but that was Peter Fonda's doing, along with being a mediocre film.
That wasn't Hopper fault & I rather enjoyed is Oeuvre.
And Gary Coleman too... just too much to bare!

Pulled apart for the last time.
Once she is assembled this weekend, I will fire & take her out for the maiden voyage.
As always 100s of hour more than anticipated.
Worth the wait.

It would have been a good time to end it all!
The food, the visual delights & the genuine hospitality would have made the moment right to end it all with this lovely family heirloom.

I don't like the idea of selling junk on the blog, but we haven't gotten to the store on the website.
This stuff only gets pulled out when I go to Yokohama Japan.
When I do get pinned in a both, I usually wander & hardly ever pull out the smalls because they cheapen the sculptures, or I am just lazy.
These photos should answer a lot of questions.

The agony of defeat
With the motor completely disassembled, we discovered the previous rebuild had left us with a scary repair on the cam, a 1/4" play in the drive shaft. A lack of replacement parts, even among the 1,000's available to us in the Competition Distributing stock, put a halt to our plan to rebuild her in a day.
