Just picked up a head from Qsixteen.
It was in decent condition and he could have repaired it and sold it but I'm glad he didn't as I found some things that will be discussed later :o

The Kxriders website experienced a major crash about a year or so ago and lost most of the older pics that weren't hosted off site.
So, I'm pretty sure those aren't available.... except for the ones I poster there :D
For people like you, pics and displays aren't necessary.
For the rest of us pics and putting our hands on parts does amazing things...
Now I need a junk crank and reed to cut up :-)
I also need to cut up my piston.
When I'm done I'll have it for display at my shop.
Perhaps I'll hook a small electric motor to it so people can ooooh and ahhh over it..
