My New Toy/Project

Recommended Posts

Ok, its taken a while to finally move the bike to it's new home, however on Thursday the move was complete.

 

It's a 1984 Can-Am Bombardier (called Toad) :-D

 

It need's alot of work and it's going to be a complete rebuild including the engine, however it's been dry stored from it's life so there's not a lick of rust or damage, just looks rough.

 

I now just can't wait to get her on the road!

 

Also in the picture my daily runner/only car, my price and joy Land Rover 90, it's a love hate relationship... as always :flowers:

Should be starting the strip down this week, possibly today if there is enough time before i start work.

 

The frame is in fantastic condition considering its been standing for some time, considering having it powder coated just for ease of it, would give me a nice clean starting point anyway.

 

However i want this to be as original as humanly possible so just wondering what everyone else would do to achieve this.

 

The engine will then be my next point of call, stripping it down completely and rebuilding/refurbing it and hopefully getting it to turn over again as it's been some time and the kick start has seized/broken :( Just hope it's not the engine that's seized.

 

I will hopefully photograph from start to finish and post them on here for all to see, well whoever is interested anyway :nut:
