Oh yeah, Picked up a 1934 21 bolt flattie and a 1949 panhead frame in my barn this chistmas.
I had this flathead with polished oem Ford aluminum heads in my 1932 tudor a couple of years ago.I will use it in my project Pheaton.
The panhead frame will be a start for my chopper. I will send it to Tobbe so he can convert it from wishbone to straightleg.

Had my flathead block for acid dipping here in Gothenburg. It looks brand new after the treatment. Finally I can start build a new hop up engine to my roadster.
This is a old hotrod engine from a 40 Ford De Luxe coupe. built in late 50´s as a hot rod. The car it self came to sweden in early 1980´s and someone stole the heads and intake from it. I traded this engine and everything else from that chassie for a chevy smallblock 307. I think that was a good deal!
When I took the engine apart I saw it was a 1940 99T block filled with Jahns pop up pistons , a Weber F 5 cam , johnson adjustable lifters and relieved.
Somewhere here in sweden there is a set of useless machined heads exept if you have pop up pistons...I wonder where they are...
Hopefully after the I have taken it to the machine shop for resurfacing I can start rebuild this motor so it will roar this summer. more to come.

Peter & Biffen is working on the midcontrols, handlebars and later on discussion where the fender should be and how to make the sissy on Lindas chopper.
Linda was griding parts for her new chopper. But what the hell, how do you work orderly with these nails?!
