The First Cut Is The Deepest

I put a wanted ad on a forum looking for a timing cover with a tacho drive and after a few days a guy has come back and offered to take this one off of this bike.
Of course the best outcome would be to buy the bike complete, but the logistics of bringing it half way 'round the world make that difficult. If he's breaking it (parting it out) anyway I don't have a problem, but if taking the cover off is the beginning of the end for this old war horse then I'm not so sure it's the right thing to do.

  1. I hate the idea of a complete bike being stripped.
    there is a lot of work to be done but this is much better starting point than trying to collect parts for a build.I want it!I'd want to leave it as is just get it running, ahh patina!Jerome
