The Bad Idea



I got this old Chinese knock-off of a '38 Beemer last year from my friend Arto for a ridiculous price because it quit running, couldn't be registered and he knew my kids would get a kick out of it. It sat mocking me while other projects got in the way. I finally got sick of it this week and spent a little time chasing the wiring, found a problem, fixed it and fired it up! We tooled around the parking lot for a while and nothing fell off so we closed up shop and hit the road for a few miles. Rad! Now, on to the registration battle. I can't wait to race this thing at the Hell on Wheels Motorally coming up at the Lake Elsinore MX track. I've got some special paint in mind for this one...
