I got this in the mail today.

My buddy at the post office window said, "Really, Cory?" 68 pounds of assorted nuts, bolts, washers, and other assorted pieces of hardware. My brother, the Mad Scientist, is cleaning up things in preparation to move and he's had his shop going for many years. We were talking the other day and he was complaining that he had so much stuff that he really couldn't take with him and figured he'd just throw out. I told him to just get out the stuff he thought I'd put to use; metric, SAE, and whatever else and throw up to 70# into one of the flat rate boxes. This ought to be fun to sort through and stash away for future use.

I usually put all old hardware into a large tub and after they get plated, I have to spend hours sorting them out into which bike they come from as well as trying to remember what part of each bike.

Perfect task for these days of COVI-19 isolation.

You can do what i do, I put the hardware in a tub and then only dig through it when totally desperate. It’s worked out well for me. My dad sorts his hardware into metric and imperial, then separate those into small sizes and larges size. He also splits out bolts and nuts. Making eight distinct tubs in total. Then he digs through them when totally desperate. Like father like son I guess.

That is one epic haul though. Having a stash like that is invaluable.

Yeah, it's a great batch of stuff. There is even a bag of nice push button switches, some n/c, some n/o. One of the n/o has already been installed on the Hedgehog and will be the starter button since I'm going back to electric start on it.

Nice I had a 66 520 for a while. Someone had swapped an L20 in, but what made it a pain to drive was the single circuit brakes. It was a guessing game on which wheel would lock when it rained or snowed.

I had probably ~67-68 Datsun PU back in the mid '70s. Was a POS with failing wiring, always overheating. Traded it for a Cougar that was a pretty good car. Gas prices screaming up and the big V8 scared the car dealer, so we close to traded even. He was almost giving away a Toronado because he thought he was going to be stuck with all of his gas hogs (he couldn't keep a 4-banger on the lot).

Bought a rusty truck bed for my 49 Ford project. It needs plenty of work bit it's better than what I had, which was nothing....

I did a 4x4 conversion on a 74 Datsun 620 for a friend. A 4 wheel drive version was not available in the US. It was a year old and we used new Jeep CJ components. It was a fun little truck but my bud rolled it one afternoon and ended that joy ride. He wasn't hurt but the cab was crushed in about 4". He had a fun time explaining the 4x4 conversion and how he rolled it to the the insurance company.

Bought these goodies for my Z900RS. I really want to take some trips this year on it and a backpack alone ain’t gonna cut it.

Later, Doug
