Back in the 1970s I sold a 1942 Harley WLA basket case complete to one of my old girl friends from high school.  it took her a couple years working with her boyfriend to get it on the road.  Yes she kept it stock with the tank shift and the foot clutch.  I caught hell from all my fello men bikers for selling it to a girl.  I told them if she can get it put together she deserves it!!

 

This is similar to what I sold 1 Kic Nic.

Mr Tanker I hope it was Angela and I hope you do not help her put it together!  LOL  I do not think she can afford your price level of parts!  I know I can't!!!  LOL

Hey all...yes, I guess I got ratted out...thanks Ray :rofl:

As some of you know I've been dreaming of finding a 521 for a about a year now. Long story short, In the past, I've thrown a few potential buys out there for input here on Ratsun & got saved from buying projects that just were just not right. 

 

A few weeks ago, I found this 1970 521 on CL in Milpitas, CA. I called Ray & picked his brain for advice then dragged my brother with me to drive nearly 8 hours round trip to check it out. I really liked it & made a deal with the guy. I got a really good deal I think. It had originally been an Oregon truck. The previous owner supposedly drove it as he found it from Oregon to California "without a hiccup" & then used it as his daily driver in the Bay Area. He did some minor work to it but basically it's appears unmolested. It still has the original carb, points & a bunch of crusty hoses in the engine bay that I wonder if they've ever been changed out. . Came with a couple extra speedo assemblies & a set of deep dish Rally rims.

 

I love the patina & plan to keep it as is...just shine it up a bit & protect it. Seat needs major love but since I've got a great local upholstery shop that did an awesome job on my wagon, I'm not too worried. I want to replace worn hoses, belts, check brakes, etc, install an electronic dizzy, put one of my webers or a pair of SU's on it & eventually drop in a 5 speed. Oh, & reinstall the heater assembly.

 

So, here are a few oics of how what she looks like now.

I appreciate any & all tips, advice, cautionary tales anyone wants to share :thumbup:

Good find Angela..I would replace worn hoses, belts, brakes and hook up the heater. I would not mess with the carb unless it goes south, same with tranny.

I probably have a hood prop, and possibly nicer eyebrow trim. Don't think I have another battery tie down but you should get that asap.
