After a 12v conversion (don't shoot, it can be removed very easily and the bike can go back to original) my junk is alive again.
Today I have "broke its wheels". I have found some fields and a lot of mud and tried a new sensation: how it feels to come back home on your own, with a big battery full of power...not angry and pushing the bike.



hm, I have to post pictures one by one...

Well, now you know where "valicaddy" comes from. :cheers: And I will try to kill the MT16 today, it needs a better adjustement (ignition, valves) first. :party:

If MT16 will not work as I expect from a new engine I will sell it and replace it with a SV, I have several engines waiting to make noise..

Thanks! (But the romanian mud makes it looks good :)  )
I came back in town one hour ago and there is a "note" in my mail box, I have received a package from outside Romania. Could it be the new exhaust system?? :blink:

I will (may be even the sound or a short clip, but I can't promise for that one).
p.s. Yes, Cadillacs in Romania (I need a spare 472 cubic inches engine for the blue one :cheers: , and some tail lights for the '79 Sedan de Ville from the pics)
You should see the 1970 Brougham.. or the Camaro, and so on :P

Cool ! glad to see someone keeping old Caddies on the road (or in the yard as it may be) , down where I live , Caddies don't have the cachet they did in years past.... Black Folk gotta have Bimmers or Lexus or those Godawful HUGE Stupid Uselee Vehicle things made by Ford & Lincoln...

I really miss 50's vintage Caddies with the Dagmars out front..... :cheers:
