Tony Linz in Brazil
Tony had his badge design rendered in vinyl and I'm the lucky recipient of three of them. They look pretty darn good.
From a Brazilian newspaper, a little blurb about the film Du which co-stars what may well be a CJ750! We'll have to investigate this.
Tony's fine M1M.
The bike was purchased from Vintage Sidecar Cruisers NE and features front and rear fender brackets not found on DTE bikes. These are more true to the original R71 design.
Tony was the one who came up with the idea of using Model A taillights, an idea I subsequently borrowed from him. The lights are available from J.C. Whitney for only $16! (RLI quoted me $125 for a similar type.) Tony designed and fabricated the mounts for these lights.
Nice paint, eh? It's black with clear coat finish.
It's a basic M1M with 12V electrical system, and now features an electronic ignition. The solid state regulator-rectifier came from Blitz Bikes. The bike has been totally rewired.
The original R71 style breather is also from Blitz Bikes.
BMW gas tank emblems look right at home on this machine.
The sidecar has a wooden floor insert from Blitz Bikes.
Here you can see how good the Model A taillights look. Tony also designed the turn signal installation.
The heads, front cover and valve access covers are all polished.
Nice stainless steel exhaust system too, and those wheels, very sharp indeed.
