Well, I pulled out this ex-racer F1 frame (part of another Reno Leoni bike, now scattered to the winds on eBay), and started putting parts on a shelf for the build. But I have always thought that I would not be a MAN (like the British Man/Boy Journeyman/Apprentice system) until I learned to use a lathe. Besides, for the No. 8 Pantah project I got introduced to welding and painting. So I am now side-tracked with this vintage bottom-barrel South Bend 9-inch lathe; it is in good condition, but filthy from sitting uncovered. It was easy to take down from the bench and put on the trailer, but I am concerned about putting it UP on the bench. Soon I will be turning out fancy things, like axle spacers and bearing spacers and sliding fairing brakets, that will rival the parts from Carlo L in Italy. MikeV

A good sturdy "level" bench or frame, lathe tools, various pieces of turnable material, and more red wine!
Enjoy.

Mike,
You are a sick individual, I may have to visit you and take away all the stuff that drives you mad.

Just noted your post Jack! Will take me decades to learn what you know. PS: I got the funny little data devise, and finally figured out how to open it, and put it in the computer; I miss those funny little multi-colored floppy discs of old. Great photos of those bikes and events. And I like the stripe added to the Guzzi tank (and a few other changes, I see). Take care, MikeV

OK. I know this is a Ducati site, and I promise to never do this again, but here is the Guzzi cafe Jack was brave enough to buy from me about six years ago (has it been that long?). A 1041cc locomotive.
