Drove it home Saturday afternoon right down the QEW from Vineland to 403 West to 6 north up through Guelph .
got a little concerned when a big squeel started, as I did the ramp from QEW to the 403, stopped up above Clappisons corners on the side of the road.
vacuum pump or idler pulley squeeling like mad , kept it under 2000rpm the rest of the way home and it didn't fly apart.
as I expected , my dad looked it over and asked "so what are WE going to do with this one?"
I know what he wants but I bought this thing to use parts off so thats what I'm doing.
I'm going to leave it at the farm and let him use it there when its needed, until I'm ready for the drivetrain. then I'll pull the drivetrain and body, cut the frame off and build a trailer tongue.
it ran 2500rpm at 100km/hr and I was basically sitting floor against the tilt bar for the seat.
under closer scrutiny, it has 3 almost new Michelins and 3 almost new Yokohama Geosomethings
better score than I had even realized.
from the A Team : I love it when a plan comes together
