    Hmmmm, those gauges sure look familiar! Is this BG?? They look like the same guages on a friends bike....very, very nice! They absolutely look like factory gauges!

    Very nice bike!

      Yes, yes it is...and I probably won't have gotten it on the road without your help rebuilding the turbo! I was always a little worried rebuilding it myself, but it's been over 6000 miles and it's going strong.
      shhh...don't tell anyone where you saw it

    Had you had any previous experience with turbo's before you found this bike? Why this bike and what kind of shape was it in when you picked it up?
    1. ManBot13
      Nope, it rolled, but had two whole parts boxes that contained the rest of the parts and hadn't run in 20 years. Mostly complete, for the low low price of $250! <---that's why

      But I digress...it took me 3 years just to start on the project, 1 to get it back on the road, and 4 before I painted it to the shape it's in today.

      Just another project :D

    cool bike!

    Your bike looks great, Manbot. I admire people who can take a bike that's been sitting for a long time and work on it to the point that it becomes something as nice as your turbo. Great job.

    This look's like something straight from the 80's. And that's such a good thing.
    1. ManBot13
      Thanks Zachary! I always like to describe it as 80's futuristic!
