I left just after 4AM Saturday morning. I haven't been in Oregon in about 10 years. Last time I did so Lori and I were driving a '63 Ford Galaxie back from Seattle. That trip didn't go so well. I had never been on the I-5 section and it was beautiful. The views of Mt Shasta were amazing. I was scouting future family vacation spots left and right.
I arrived at my first stop. I met some really cool dudes that have been into bikes and cars a hell of a lot longer than me. I picked up a 1952 frame set up for a Harley 45, and a chromed 1950 frame. Also a '66 Bonnie motor in a '63 frame, a butt load of wheels and parts, and a cool old Sansui and Marantz receiver.
On to my next stop 4 hours north. This time I picked up a '59 Bonneville motor with an ironhead top end in a 1954 frame, a 1954 T110 motor (8 bolt alloy head), a set of 47 5T cases and parts, and a bunch of other really useful... crap. All in all both stops, almost enough to build 3 rigids from.
Loaded up and headed home, I left at 6PM and made it home at 2AM, ahead of schedule.
The aftermath. I unloaded the car and trailer on Sunday in about 100 degree weather. This should keep me busy for a while. I already know how I want to build 2 of the rigids, and I can guarantee they will not have 16" rear wheels with unit front ends.
'63 frame, '66 Bonnie motor. Set up as a flat tracker at some point, neat oil tank mod.
