    1954 khk

    I've had a itch for a K model for a while so I recently purchased this death trap.

    I wont be doing a resto, just a KR style bobber

    Looks like a hoot Dave. Now, where's that WR?...

    Nice score Dave. I had a pair of 55 KHK's which were truly death traps. I could post a pic of one of them if you would like. Those bikes had all kinds of balls.

    Thanks for the positive comments guys and yes Pap, I'd love to see some pics. Its not pretty but it will be fun to play around with.

    There seems to be some conjecture around whether KHK's existed in 1954 so maybe Robbie can chime in when he's around!

    Mark - The WR is in a million pieces but to cut a long story short.
    - Front head is a WLA head that had been modified to go on the WR cylinders and pop up piston - I have another front head to go on
    - Rear cylinder was broken just under the nut (across the corner) so I took that off to get fixed while the head was being changed
    - Gearbox. Bad luck or bad management, when I rode it for the first time it made an awful noise in first gear. So bad I immediacy stopped the bike. I then tried again in second and noise was gone. Turns out I had a broken tooth on the cluster gear so the box is out and apart. Tooth was laying in the bottom of the box!

    All good fun
    Dave

    So, the fix for the WR is to buy another bike? Sounds right ....

    Thanks Larry.

    Mark - I only have limited space in my shed, so I fix them and then release them to new homes when I want something else. When I walk into the shed and don't get excited by looking at them, then I know its time to release them. The shovel went to get this one.

    My Grandmother was a bit of a hoarder (stuff they didn't have during the depression - chocolate, soap, toothbrushes, dish washing liquid, canned fruit just to name a few things) and this has clearly impacted me as I don't like clutter. So I don't keep anything I cant / wont use in the next 6 months....................unlike others we know :-) The down side is I have got rid of stuff only to buy the exact same thing 18 months later.
