Crankshaft Bearings!

Just ordered two 6004-C3 bearings from Treats. I love ordering parts...

Rebuilding the PA50II's engine. Oil seals from ML Kevin.


With the longer frame the old Ducati cafe seat looks kind of silly.

I'm thinking something a little more boardtrack racer inspired, maybe a Puch saddle seat?

If I go with the saddle seat I'm thinking some boardtrack bars (read cruiser bike bars) instead of the clubmans
