    Default Classic Bikes ..My Restoration Projects

    Hi Guys !!!
    I was able to pick up an Ural 39 with Side Car and a Matchless 350, 1947 last year from Afghanistan (thank God those bikes are now in Isloo), been able to get my hands on a Harley 750CC, 1957, Truimph 4 Cylinder (I guess 600 CC or above) and a BMW R-26, 350 CC, Type I. These inshallah will be my restoration projects whenever I find sometime.... I intend starting with BMW or Matchless for ease in restoration. Here are some pics I took the other day from a cell phone camera, will upload better pictures during restoration. By the way I may need some spares especially a front fender and air filter box for the BMW, any body could help me find them?

    Salam Adil,
    Indeed making them or swiping an identical body part is my last resort. There is no rush, I am sure I wont have time enough to restore either of them in the near future !!! lets hope I get lucky with the origina stuff some where

    You mean its start and running.???Great !!

    And yes what you are saying will work..Mr.Razak but that will cost around Rs.1100 with Labor and everything.

    The front sprocket will only cost Rs.55

    Salam Adil,
    Thanks for the information. I have been away on a field trip with no access to internet in remote areas of southern Afghanistan (very difficult areas)
    I was i Pakistan for a few days where I picked up the HONDA CB400 advertised on Pakwheels. As much as I wanted to visit Lahore to pick up the bike and meet with you and other friends, I could only send someone to pick it up.
    thanks again and hope our steps do cross sometime somewhere
    Wa salam

    Got it for 40 + 4K in transportation. Tell you honestly it wasnt in the same condition as in picture, got the engine totally restored, chroming redone hence additional 10k. The silencors are rusted from inside cant be chromed again. I want to buy a second hand pair, I hope like always you could help. The bike is now in a perfect running condition. Inshallah next time when I visit Pakistan, I intend changing the color to Orange

    Hi Adil,
    I am sure this auto store you are talking about would have engine parts as well. Actually I would like to buy a spare engine as well (if I could afford) how much do you think would be one ?
