    Well, that's just plain cool. I wonder how many things I would have to sell to get one.
    Well, that and keeping gas in it, they wern't known for the best mileage.

    That is very cool.....I put a lot of miles on those while serving in the Army in 1968,ours never looked that good,but they were a blast to drive,and mileage wasn't a concern as "Uncle" was paying.The army couldn't get anyone to tool up to build more so they took ours,rebuilt them and shipped them to Nam,and we were issued theM-715.....hard riding,hard to see out of the cab and everyone developed a miss before to long,we couldn't change plugs because it took a wrench that we didn't have,I left country shortly so don't know what the cure was.

    Wow, what an array of talent on this forum. The motorcycles that have been built are especially impressive. I do little project after project in the garage, but usually pretty small scale stuff.
    I finally finished this picture frame. I bought the logo from a member (can't remember the name) and aged it with some salty water. These are some of the more recent Willys I've owned.
    I snuck it onto the bedroom wall when my wife wasn't home.:p.

    I made this bench from a cruddy tailgate and old fence boards. I found the plate on a job site in the dirt years ago; cleaned it up and gave it some fresh paint.

    So I did a propane conversion on my riding mower today. since i have 5 or 6 propane tanks i dont know what to do with. It was super easy. I just ran the propane right to the carb fitting. But the regulator doesnt put out enough so i can only run it up to about half throttle and it just struggles that low. I might try it without a regulator but id rather get an adjustable one. theyre only $13. so I might just do that.

    I got it running great. I just put a heavier spring in the regulator. It probrobly made the regulator about useless but it works now. If I leave the brass valve wide open it runs best at wide open throttle. So It may even be getting too much gas. but I can close the brass valve some to get the rps down. Very happy with my mod and im calling it done for now.

    Very nice work on those knives! I got my mini tractor done. Now im working on making steel wheels for it. I have one left to do. I had to make a roller for the hoops. It works great. Also threw together a motorized bicycle the other day. Its not running yet I had to order a new ignition for it. And last is the battery charger/jumper I finally got running the way i want it after 3 alternators and 3 engines
