Cross-post picture, but my main goal is to semi-restore the failing bits on this Cagiva Elefant 2 and getting it running for the spring.

I like the oddballs and misfits, what can I say. Than again I commute on 49cc Italian/Spanish bikes 200 days out of the year so I am used to the snaggles of old 2T's

Here's my Winter project, 1952 Schwinn Black Phantom. I'm not sure where the tank and motor are but I'll check eBay.

After tons of time, and even more money, this winter project is done. (For now).
It's a replica of my first race bike.

So awesome. :thumbsup: I can still remember going to school and bragging that you qualified for Southwick on that bike. Of course that was when you had to qualify for the C 125 class. Those levers better not ever be touched to complete the recreation though. :biggrin
