Is that a Maton guitar in the case? Had one once but somebody stole it. Haven't been able to replace it. If I had a Harley with that tank; I would keep that tank and trade the bits for an old, well used Maton.

Yes from the early seventies i think it was called a high bridge or high arch? something like that.I used to do a lot of violins and wooden pianos etc still paint a lot of guitars today.

Dave that hercules prop is a full size replacement prop for a tiger moth,i can easily repeat that on my smaller props.

Master Airscrew 18 x 10
This is the next jump up, or down whichever way you look at kit. I like the Classic for the wide blades and cool swish they make at idle.

That bike in the fore ground, is that a Dyna Glide Custom, my brother in Mo. has a black one with grey trim.

Beautiful bike but the paint scheme would look better on an Indian.

hey guys, this is funny, I just PM's Dave and thanked him for the back plate he has sent me, and I told him how I have come to dislike the cold in my later years, well I just looked outside and it's what we call a "white out", you can't even see the sky, LOL wow

but you know what ? I still have my Saitos LOL

BTW, dang I missed it, some guy was selling an HP 61 Gold Cup, front/ Slide Carb,, $125 shipped, boy what a deal, and I missed it, I guess I got to get up earlier to snag the deals

Jim

Jim, I broke my own rule and ordered two APC props for testing only, a 13 x 6 and a 15 x 6 for the Saito 62 and the Saito 100. I sold the OS 95-v and the 62-v and was surprised at how quickly they sold.

Saito hates the mention of an OS here,he's bad enough when someone owns up to having an fa125... he goes off like someone just slipped him a Limited Slip Differential trip or somethin

I can see him grabbing an OS by the neck and shaking it apart, but I bet he'd like an HP 61Ri GC, they are real classy engines
