  1. Looks great! Any chance we might see it at Zagrays? Mike.....
  2. As one of the "powers that be" your welcome (and needed) for as long as you feel up to it! Thanks for the update!! Mike.....
  3. My bodywork and paint skills are lousy, so it was an easy decision to leave the patina alone. Mike....
  4. Thanks!! It took quite a bit of wire wheeling to get all the flaky paint off.....one good coat of primer and two coats of gloss Almond (all rattle cans of course). Mike.....
  5. This one came to me last year and after a couple carb cleanings, a carb rebuild, all new fuel lines and filters and three different fuel pumps it still ran crummy....so I parked it all winter in disgust. But when I saw Stevasaurus's video @stevasaurus of a couple of his short frames running it motivated me to try again. First thing I did was reset the points after giving them a light sanding.....AND THE DAMN THING RAN GREAT!!! I can't believe I didn't mess with the points last year 🙄 ! This new development re-newed my interest and this weekend I gave the rims some attention. I love the patina so I won't be messing with the sheet metal. Pics of course.....first pic is when it came home. Mike.....
  6. I hear ya, a couple times a year I park my newish machine and mow with an older one. Feels great!! Mike....
  7. Pm sent Gary. Mike....
  8. @stevebo , I'll be doing a 2 weeker in Hawaii when the Danbury Meet-n-Greet is scheduled. One of these days we'll meet up and show the Commando 8 some love! You are planning on being at Zag's right? I have a tractor to get delivered to you. Mike....
  9. I saw that for sale....but I don't have the kind of wall space that sucker requires! Looks great 👍 !! Mike.....
  10. @wallfish ...Got the Commando running good so I won't have to show up with my Honda-Horse! Just takin care of a few last minute details. Mike......
  11. Sounds like you are always busy!! Good luck with it. Mike....
  12. Hmmm....and I thought you were fast! 😄 Mike.....
  13. Great video....I think it has motivated me to get back to my Commando 8 and finish what I started! Mike.....
  14. Let's hope it doesn't rain this time! Looks like I'll be home for this one so I should see ya there John. Mike.....
  15. Happy birthday Russ!!! Mike.....
