    Ready to rip. Now if it wasn’t 102* in Sac!! Looks like I’ll be driving through GJ in October on my way to a reunion in Breckenridge. I’m gonna plan on having a couple days to kill on my way. Pretty sure I’ll be hauling this thing with me.

    I like your attention to details. Is this getting painted?

    Thanks! Yeah if I’ve learned one thing its, to touch everything!

    Pan assembly soon!

     

    Why isn’t there more member build threads here like there use to be? Does KCW need a dedicated forum for “Members Builds” like the old site had? I know Instagram and FB have taken over for guys showing their build progress. I do the same thing on IG, but with a forum at least you can show your build exclusively and not have it watered down with pictures of food and your cats!

    MAKE BUILD FORUMS GREAT AGAIN!

    OG beam stiffeners just because… Mated to a CB 2″ beam.

    I had to massage this RHD pedal assembly quite a bit. The clutch hook was a crude “fab” job by a previous owner. Fixed that using the available LHD pedal shaft upgrade kit… slice, dice & weld. Also the clutch arm was flimsy s fuck! I could literally twist it in my hand.. So I sacrificed a rusted out frozen LHD pedal assembly for its clutch arm and welded it back to back to the RHD cultch arm to box it in nicely. I did this mod with the pedals in my Notchback and it just feels super solid. Same with the Lokar pedal pads. I like em. They look cool…

    Really?? If I left a bus outside for 8 years, it’d look like JJs camper bus! How does this still look so good after being outside??!! Congrats JJ.

    … he has had to leave it outside all year the last 8 years or so, in the back yard no less……

    Speaking of bikes… I’m finally building myself something to actually ride. The Koski Bros: Bro Bomber. They made a run of 100 of these frame & forks as a throw back to the original 70s Pro Cruiser. Its 27.5 tires and will will get a Fox suspension fork. I’d love to come to GJ and ride some trails!!

    I’m sure Franz can get you into a “356 look” pretty easily.

    Got the engine finished for the RHD. Haven’t ran it yet though. Probably break it in next week. Took some inspiration from Franz’ and the 356 styling on his 36 horse engines.

    So you’re saying we have to drive 2300 miles just to go thrash on our busses?

    HAHAHA! Sounds like it Franz.
