Last weekend was the Coupe devils Rod & kustom Bonanza. a super nice car and bike meet in Norway. To bad not to many swedes who came. most of the cars where from norway, 1 from Finland! I hope more guys from sweden come with me next year, because I definitly going back.
The weather wasnt to good but hey who cares when you got a big bunch of cool friends and cars around you. I started my trip from Gothenburg 2 a clock on the friday. had a little to much problem with my roadster I came to the norwegian side of the boarder stopped at my brother Pål for the night. we had a great time with beer and lots of whiskey! we took of from Sarpsburg the day on sathurday morning. Pål aslo is has a 28 roadster on 32 frame as I have! must have been a nice wiew on the road seeing such nice roadsters!. We took our brother Claz with us this day. we where going to party! And again my roadster had some problems. we solved it all and took of.
we came to the car show and hooked up with 2 good friends of mine from sweden who came on their bikes. Olof on his rare 45 knuckle and Dick on his 52 pan!
Trazan whas the DJ for the weekend as allways, you rock man! such good taste in music and allways drunk as hell! This year I found him playing his tunes in a russian gasmask!
Sathurday was a long day. I rode back home to sweden with some friends of mine in a 53 chevy stationwagon and a 54 mercury. It felt so good just to park the roadster back in my garage and just turn the lights of and go home.
Not to may pics this time as I didnt have my camera with me all the time because of the rain. Good work buddys! I will be back next year! I see you guys next week at the Jokers cars & bike show!
I have been running the original 99 cast iron heads for 4 years now. Time to make a change.
A while ago I found a set of rare heads. Thickstun cast iron heads. A pair that should not exist. They where all made in aluminum. The Thickstun heads are rare bird to find and here I got a set of the what I think is the pre cast for the aluminum heads.
I started a thread on HAMB about these heads and there I found out there was another guy having a set of heads aslo cast iron but they where not like mine. They look exactly like the aluminum heads with Thickstun Los Angeles my does only have thickstun on them. As we now today these are the only two sets known to exist. Speedway bill wanted to buy the other pair from the owner for his collection of speed equipment but he said no.
Long story short. I had these on the shelf and thought my roadster needed something new for the season so I put them on my car.
Next thing to fix. I really need to build myself a set of headers. They look really good on the car, looks like they have been there since new.
Last month I have been a luckey guy. I have found alot of good parts I have wanted/needed for a long time!
a couple of days ago I got my Halibrand quick change Now these babys. I have been looking for a set of these for a while. Now I got a pair. So I need 2 more. Any one out in the world having a single or a pair of these 18 inch wide 5 , I want to buy! Email: FlatheadRoadster@gmail.com
The last pic shows a 16 inch wide 5 compare to a 18 inch wide 5.
I Know My buddy Håkan Erixson want these puppys in his garage. Sorry bro, when I have a complete set, I let you have the rest! Haha!
