Stock up on Large Frames, weed out the Tube Frames.

 

The only problem is that Large Frame's are like rocking horse poo in the UK, especially with at least four of us tracking them down. I think we need to do some tractor shopping in the US and have a shipping container lined up.

 

Great pictures Andrew.

Okay, but what are you going to put in the container to send back?

Some rarer RAMs in original patina and probably several LFs plus implements.

How about something with four wheels, two seats, and rhymes with Boston Farten?

A DB5 Aston Martin in metallic blue would be my dream car actually. However I would settle for an iconic Yank pickup from the 50/ 60s

Looking forward to Chris to casting his eye on this one.

I am tempted to take the hood and fenders off to get them repainted and apply new decals to them too. Probably do the wheels too to smarten it up a bit plus sort out the seat but first a good service and sort out the missing tinware and a good clean up are the orders of the day.

Looking forward to an update after the Saturday activity. I have made a few suggestions to Chris about tools to take which should keep you both busy and a few pictures of the activity would be lovely :thumbs: Wish I could join you.

Thanks Iain. Chris bought all the goodies to service the Beast on Saturday and he's bringing a mate down with him too for company on the journey. Photos will be forthcoming and possibly a video too.....

Due to the poor weather tomorrow, I am going to bring my air compressor to the lockup to air clean the grime around the engine and to get a few bits together for Saturday.

Since the weather was absolutely bucketting it down, I decided to begin going through my latestest purchase prior to Chris's visit tomorrow.

The previous owner was an elderly lady who was very short apparently and thus modified the hydro pedals for ease of driving! On one side there was a block of wood on the right footrest and on the left was a spring loaded metal plate bolted to the floor. When the LF arrived on Wednesday, I sprayed the offending items with WD40 which worked a treat this morning. Within. Half an hour both offending items were in the bin. Photos of before and after.

I also quickly checked the air filter to see how dirty it was. The photo said it all..

The tyres are fairly new which is an encouraging sign.

Looks like you have a bit of work ahead of you - glad to hear you got the modifications off easily.

 

At least the person who put them on did it in such a way that they could be removed - height challenged people should be allowed to experience the thrill of ownership of a Bolens large frame the same as the rest of us.  :dancingbanana:

 To me Andrew, the old girl has not seen a service for a very long time.

 

The air filter is the only thing I have not got but any fool can fit one :smilewink:

 

Looks better with out the mods :thumbs:
