Where's the 'Like" button?

The Force is strong with this one....
You must be a proud Dad. I have a similar photo of my sons helping me pull the motor in my 67 Elan. The older son now has a 62 Super Seven. The video can be seen on Petrolicious if you search "Add Lightness".

Best regards,
Dan Wise

A cleanup, new brushes, new bearings, and new pinion later its back together. Tested fine on the bench, we'll see what next week brings after I get it back on the car.

Starter worked just as expected, so back on the road and ready to do some more testing and tweaking on the carburetors. Installed a new tonneau cover from Redline today, looking more and more like it did in 1966...

My apologies for not replying sooner. Roads are near the south end of the California's San Francisco Bay, in the coastal hills near Saratoga and Highway 9.

the Seven is looking good, I like the detail on the tonneau. I still have the side screens, hood and tonneau that came with our seven when new

Took my Seven out for its first drive of any length, a shakedown drive on the suspension and carb work - a little over 80 miles and a couple hours of smiles. Also took the opportunity to experiment with a GoPro - next time think I'll mount higher and a bit forward. The video is a 7-8 mile stretch in the middle of my drive (I need to learn how to cut/trim). We don't have much in the way of "twisties" in ths part of the world, but this little piece of road had been recommended to me (and to a couple of motorcyles I came up on at the start). A fun little jaunt.
