Hello Guys
Here is my next project. I have a rebuilt 1956 DB 500 engine and a 1956 frame. Here is some pictures. [Linked Image]

Good start for a project Jeff, you have all the important bits to build that Goldie.
Good luck, and we look forward to see your progress.

Hi Guys
Its been a long time since I have started this project. Its a long haul when you star with a engine and frame. So here we go. The frame was quite a mess, its been straightened and powder coated. The engine, swingarm and [Linked Image] top yolks installed.

great and that looks like a 2 gallon catalina tank on the shelf, are you putting it in scrambler trim (you know it makes sense)

Hello Paul
I am doing the GS in road trim. I have a 4 gal tank for it. I also have a 57 clipper so I have a scrambler to do at some point. Thanks for your comments. Jeff

Hi Guys
Here is a quick update on the goldie. I have rebuilt the forks with SRM progressive springs, and all new internals. The oil tank and tool box are on. The tank and seat just there for looks now. [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Howdy, I am painting my tank the same red color that the tank on the blanket has, and I was wondering what color the pin striping is between the chrome and paint.
Do you know if that is the original tank color?
Thanks, Jerry Roy

Hi Jerry
The little A10 Tank is red with gold lining. Is not original, it was chromed in mexico and painted in the US. I can send you some pictures if you want. Jeff
