Yes. With today's road conditions I like having a lot of suspension. I've got a Yamaha Super Tenere, and old KLR650 and a not quite street legal KTM 250. Was a long time BMW GS rider and still have a R80.

The Gay Bar is a cute play on the town's name, but I had more fun exploring the chimney and old ruins from the Copper mining equipment.

I'm assuming not quite street legal means there a tag bolted under the fender?

Yes
It's got a headlight and taillight, brake light and a folding mirror, but it might be wearing a plate for my BMW. 8)

I only use it for off road events and dual sports. As long as you don't do stupid stuff, nobody pays attention.

Once a year the locals used to load the bottom of that stack up with tires and fire them up ,but I guess someone figured it wasn’t environmentally friendly and shut them down lol

That's a sharp boat I like the dual cockpit setup. Have you decided on a motor yet?

Really cool looking old boat you bought. =D> I could see that being either a fishing boat or a classic runabout to cruise in.

Thank you 450clown !! the front cockpit does have the walk through seat backs.. I'm not sure on the motor yet.. I can't find much info on the models of these boats and from the little I have found this one really doesn't fit the specs listed.. I have a few motors I can choose from.. 1958 Mercury Mark 75 60hp, 1957 Evinrude Lark 35hp. or a 1957 Mercury Mark 30 30hp. my first thought is the Mark 75 60hp..

Thank You bikerider !! it is a classic looking runabout.. but... it also is open enough for some fishing as well .. so sort of a win win boat !!

Now that's the spirit! :mrgreen: If you start a build thread for it I would definitely follow.

Nice looking rig. I have seats similar to your two front ones except mine are mounted on boxes with storage under. Mine are made by Tempress. I like them a lot. Very comfortable and so far they are holding up well. Enjoy.
