    Parting out a 1st Gen, 89

    Well, I have come to the end of the road of trying to rebuild my Gen 1 VMAX. There was more wrong with the tranny than just the 2nd gear, and I can't justify spending all the money on the parts and time to fix it. So I am parting the bike out. The bike is completely disassembled, including the...

    Well I picked up my uncle's Bultaco Matador that he had shipped back from Spain in 1973 when he was in the air force. I will have fun restoring it in honor of him.

    What has been your personal best upgrade / project / mod and why?

    I'm sure that different people have different things they've done to the Max, (and are still doing, for that matter :biglaugh:), but what has been your personal best upgrade /project / mod and why? For instance, In my case. My 91 was neglected, barely covered, left out in the elements...

    Getting Ready to Sell

    It is time to sell the project / finished bike and redo it next year. I should have sold it earlier in the season but I was still too in love with it. Now my plan is to sell it and use the money to finish paying for school. So I'd like to share where I'm at right now. Photobucket destroyed so...

    85 Vmax project

    I have an 85 vmax I've been working on. I ran into a problem with coolant leaking from the oil breather cover/housing between the cylinders. I know there is a at least 1 rubber seal that I'm may need to replace but is there another seal or gasket for the covwr/housing spacer to the block?

    86 Vmax project

    Hey everyone! First off, I have recently acquired a running 86 Vmax. It does need some loving though. I found that the coolant tube was cracked and noticed that I can use the one off my 83 Venture. I'm curious to know what else can I use off the venture to improve or help with the max. I came...

    3D Metal Printer Access- Project Ideas?

    Basically I've been given free and basically unlimited access to a 3D metal printer and can make whatever I want out of aluminum, as long as it's within 28x28x36cm. It's ideal for making things that can't be produced through typical machining. Any sweet I deas for what I should make? I was...

    lot full of project cars in Canada $1.45 million CN

    I don't think this guy is gonna get anywhere near his asking price, and the cars are all in-need of varying degrees of work, but it would be fun to see a video inventory of what he's got, I'm sure there is some worthwhile stuff in there. “I’m 60 years old and won’t live long enough to restore...

VIN: JYA2LTN03PA004151 This is a Canadian model VMAX, covered and stored in a garage just before my son was born and he...

    Project Heavy Cruiser

    I wasn't sure where this thread should go since it's not a VMax, but it has VMAx parts so this seems like the right spot. I'll take a chance and post it here and a mod can move it if needed. Last year, I found myself facing forced retirement (26 years of military SAR tends to beat you up...
