I had to have one last impulsive action before the kid came. I picked this up this weekend... hopefully it will be BabyXY and my first project. I must thank the wife for hardly putting up a struggle!
1953 Thunderbird motor (factory rigid), 1955 Thunderbird chassis (first year swingarm). Complete basket case. Missing a lot. No fenders, seat, nacelle, engine mounts, most of the front end. I do have the fork lowers and triple trees. The front wheel is incorrect, but surprisingly correct for my '67 TR6. I thought they made repops for the fenders and nacelle, I guess they do, but they're fiberglass or Indian made (quality questionable). Luckily it does have the gas tank (including trim and badges), oil tank, and battery box (minus cover), magneto, and primary cover. My original plan was restoration... but not sure now. I won't be touching this for quite a while. Soon I need to go through the entire parts list just so I have a record of what's missing and what needs replaced. Project wise... I think I'm good for a while. Unless I find a factory rigid too good to say no!
