A few weeks ago while camping, the two women next to us had a new RE with the side car. Funny thing is,it looked and sounded just like yours.
Yes they still make them in India ??? When Ivo was in India for several months in the 80s he hired
a 350 RE Bullet and drove around the country with it. They even make a Diesel version :o

Heo it’s just another story they just keep coming. Hey at least your not boring. Cool bike and besides the smoke it sounded pretty good.
Yes it was running fine and the smoke went away after a while when the perservation oil burned away
As i remember it, it had a rodknock when dad bought it,  so we have already ordered a new crankpin with
But i could not hear any knocking now, maybe new oil fixed that. Last registred in 1968 so who knows what
oil it had
It was just like when i was young,push starting the next barnfind. The exitment when it started, smell of old gas and oil,
the cops arriving ;D ;D

I sold a -54 Royal enfield Bullet that my dad bought 25 years ago just beacuse it was for sale
Sold it to my friend Ivo, so we cleared a way(tunnel) to get it out of the barn.
And since he is from Austria he insited that we had to drink beer, and as he is also my Doctor  who
am i to argue with that ;D. We washed it changed oil put in some fresh gas and tried to kickstart it.
It wanted to start but returnspring to the kickpedal broke, so we decided to push start it down hill from my house
As we worked us closer and closer to a heart attack it almost started.
A neighbour came driving with his fourwheeler so i asked him to tow start us, he was sceptical that i would survive that ;D
Anyway we got it running and it smoked like had oiled the cylinder generously :o no wounder it was hard to start

We drowe around  for a while ,then we put the bike on the stand and sat down at the bus stop outside my house  looking at the bike.
Thats when the cops arrived ;D ;D someone had called them on us but they just slowed down and looked at us like we where droped down
by a UFO ;D ;D ;D ;D

what transmission is in that? shifting like crazy and waving at the fans.

I belive it is a Swedish built sequentinal 5 speed box. Pull back to shift up, push forward to
shift down
Thats about the only trick part on the car. Still the stock suspension designed during WWII.
Rear suspension is more or less like a 40s Buick,or like what they use in NASCAR.front suspension
is an ordinary 40s kingpin ifs.  Better springs and shocks though. Required to run the stock block
so it is a B18, 109 cuinch

I have always enjoyed watching this type of racing with older vehicles...even when the vehicles were not so old.

I am amazed, however, at how damaged the vehicles get even when the racing is relatively clean and trouble free.

I also wonder how many vehicles get destroyed during the learning curve as new racers gain experience. Lots of cars folded up and torn apart.

Well narrow gravel roads high speed, you just kiss a boulder that have been there since the ice age. It refuse to move so the sheetmetal
have to surender :D

Last winter i straightened a Volvo 940 that a fresh driver crashed during a race. Next weekend he crashed at the same spot,
And with his gained experience from the last race he had  higher speed .So this time he mangled both quarterpanels at the same
spots but harder, bent the framerail more, and landed on the roof. It was totaled

Model 94 will always be a favorite of mine
I like them to, i had a 94 Carbine but sold it monday to be able to get permit for this 94
Max four guns for hunting and not two of the same caliber in Sweden ::) ::)
it have the heavy octagon full lenght barrel, it is a good shoting gun
The mauser is a MS 410B Luxury in 22lr,  sporterized version of the downsized kar98 training rifle.
Serialnr starts with a 2 that tells it is made for the German market,4 is export also only have German proof marks.
Wounder how it ended up in Sweden ??? and in mint condition
I had to sell my Anshutz 1416 to get the permit but the Mauser is as good shooter as the anshutz

Two guns i inherited after my dad
A Winchester 94 centenial in 30-30
and a Mauser 410 22 long from 1938

When i was 14-15, 77-78 we built dunebuggys. The tire sourse was the dumpster
behind the tireshops. So the choice was a few years old, lets say 72 isch.
Those i remember among the wide tires is Firestone wideoval, Goodyear Pollyglas
Pos-a-traction torque twister, Kelly Supercharger.

I went home friday morning, When i travel i try to chose backroads before the big main higways
that way you get to se more of the counbtryside.
Anyway i followed some small roads on a road map (you guys remember those?)
that was in the glovecompartment and ended up in a military exercise field ::)
I knew there had been in the past but was terminated, but obviously was retaken by the army
So there i was running with a lot, and i mean a lot of tanks when the Military police stoped me and asked
where i was going. I thanked the officer for protecting my country and told him i had no idea they where back
He let the tanks pass by and showed me a shortcut out of the area saluted me and sent me on my way
I went by and picked up a Daimler (Jaguar) frontend for the 36 Coupe, then i went to Stockholm to my friend Ollie.
He had made dinner so we ate and had a few beers.
Next day we went to his Garage,they are a bunch of guys that rents part of the parking garage under an
apartment building and and bought equpment like welders,lathe,mill,and such together

Ollies Garage neighbours -65 Dart

Ollies rear suspension mocked up

Front mockup

Darts new 8.2 inch Ford block, Ollie going to build for another garage neighbours 64 Falcon

A slightly modified Nova

I could have spent a long time taking photos in that garage but i had to continue my travel home.
Went by another friend in Uppsala that have a 46 ford coupe custom and a 30 tudor and a 61 olds 88
but camera was full so no pics from there.
Arrived home 10.00 at night mothers Mercedes performed well
used no oil,  averaged 19 mpg

There's only one head that will bolt up using all the bolt holes on the World block and it's not a head to write home about. 

Cooling has never been an issue, so I can't really say that the bigger holes are a plus. 

One thing I don't like about the FRPP block is that the caps aren't billet and the bolts are just regular bolts (not like ARP).   Now granted, I've made 800 hp with the 9.200" deck BOSS block, so it must not be an issue, but it just doesn't look as professional as the Dart and World blocks. 

FWIW, I haven't seen a Dart block in so long, I've forgotten what they look like.  They haven't been available in about 2 years.

On my way home now and i stopped over in Stockholm at may friend Ollie. He had just recieved a new Dart block out of the new castings
it was a beauty with realy thick cyl walls.But he have waited one and a half year. Got pics i can download tomorrow
