This update will be two parts USA and one part Europe.
First the european part: we have kept working on the AS3 Europa and we’re almost finished. We have taken pictures of every step involved, so far it is well over 1000 pictures though I’ll need to sort them a bit. As such we’ll spread the updates out over the coming weeks.
Now on to the first american part: we have got a new 1969 Californian Orange AS2C from the US. It has been kept in a climate controlled environment since it was new at a Yamaha dealer. It only has 640 miles (1029 km) on the meter and even has the original tires. We’ll have a picture gallery up quite soon. The only thing we’ve done apart from cleaning some grime from the transportation is a thorough cleaning of the carburetors. After that we just charged the battery, poured in some petrol and started it up! We have a video of the start and the subsequent test drive below.
On to the second american part: I’m heading abroad to Los Angeles for a bit over a month on 5th of november, next monday, which means I’ll be having a harder time answering the questions you email us so please keep in mind that it might take a little longer for me to respond. Don’t worry, Ole is still here and we have planned ahead to be able to keep updating the site while I’m away.
Now the fun part: our first start and test drive of the AS2C.
