A find

We’ve managed to get a hold of a NOS marine blue fuel tank for the AS3. It’s amazing to see what is still out there, all of these parts have been out of production for decades yet somehow parts still in their original box turn up now and then. It’s exciting to think about the amount of things that lay gathering dust in storage all over the world. In the end someone either discovers it or it’s destroyed by time. I can’t help but wonder what we’ll find next.

Piece of bike

Hi,

You know all those motorcycles we got a few weeks back? Well, now we’ve completely disassembled every last one of them! All that is left is a mountain of parts. To summarize things: we’ve got material for a number of new projects, though none that we will start right now, and a ton of spare parts.

We just received two brand new exhaust pipes for our AS3 Europa project from our friend Jean-Louis in France, they even had the original price tags on them: 297 Franc.

On top of that we’ve repaired a generator for future use, we recently got hold of a new AS1 generator, as a bonus in that trade we got another new AS1 generator that was damaged for parts. It turns out the damage was a crack in the cast aluminium ring at the bottom making it impossible to fit on a motorcycle. Luckily we had a spare ring for the generator, the result: another new working generator.
