    Getting a divorce,she's a redhead so i got a replacement...
    PM Canadien Redhead has a few issues,but will be cheaper to fix then the x's issues
    Built 1950 this is a early one according to the serial #
    She fills a hole in the PM lineup.Not many left to find,they are getting harder to find though.
    Need a Torpedo and a few more gear drives.

    Whats everyone working on these days? I have been all over the place lately lol. Good new though, I am almost ready to make a history of McCulloch video like my previous homelite and poulan videos on youtube. Im also drafting up a wicked cool timeline, but you will have to wait till the video to see it :)

    Sameo sameo, working on other folks cars, trucks and boat motors. Hope to get done with their stuff so I can mess with my stuff. Got an echo coming for me to look at, no power pass idle.

    good, everyone is busy, I'm elbow deep in projects. Getting it all done too, lots of good stuff. I ripped out the carpet in my front room, floored it with plywood, the Sportster lives in the front room now.
    I have two pickups, big and little, red and green, '87 F150 and a'96 Ranger. I'm about to convert the dining room into a den/sitting room/bar and museum, the bar will be OG Redwood, 10'x28''x2''.
    Next month I'll be tearing into the Sportster, ''The Hoyden'' will be different when she rolls out the front door.

    It is an XL883L, but it is no longer Super Low and about to get taller.

    What I don't like about mine is they used the Low's rear shocks, not much travel.

    I went to 13'' shocks and monotubes up front, about to replace the forks with standard length and get another inch and a half more travel.

    How about posting you profile photo so us saw addicts can sit here and try and figure out what all you have sitting there on your shelves! :)

    Here you go this was around three years ago, I have added quite a few more shelves now and taken over our garden shed and large cubby house with saws.
    I love bringing saws back to life, There's just too much being thrown away these days. [​IMG]

    Rustoleum sunburst yellow. It turned out OK..... I should have spent the time totally strip the old paint, all of the old chips show through up close.

    Well it looks good to me, I find it a lot easier to get them to run than painting them.
    Thanks for your help.
