I've never been fortunate enough to stay in one place very long pretty much all of my young life, have always had an adventurous sole. If only I could have saved everything like that that I bought, they are all but just a memory now.


Sweet Sportster, always been a big fan of spoke rims.

I have been after a "K" model for years, May have to settle for a newer bike. I'm thinking nothing bigger than a 800.
   Bullitt, how far are you from long beach? There is a good bike swap meet every month.

There was one guy I knew years ago here in Delaware that had a 'K' model. I keep thinking 1957 or something like that. The year may be wrong but he did say it was quite a rare bike. Haven't seen him in a while but I bet he wouldn't sell it. I remember him saying he was looking for a part that was for that model alone. I had a friend growing up in Atlanta who bought one of the police 3 wheeler 45's in the late 60's. Cool ride, don't see them around either.

 I know this isn't Camaro related but it is hard to find anyone with older bikes to talk to on line. Most around here drive EVO's and such. I have a friend with 3 panheads, all suicide shift and a friend in Phoenix with a WLA military bike.  Every time I show up with my shovelhead, I get man I wish I still had my shovel, can't beat that sound. My first bike at 15 was a 62 Triumph 650 TR. Old school chopper, 10 over tubes and bolted/weld on hardtail large diameter back wheel, really tall sissy bar. What a ride. I had a limited edition 79 sportster 1000 in the 90's I think only 2000 of those were made. Been looking for info on it but haven't had any luck. Real wild decals (bright yellow and pink) with an eagle on the tank, I think mine was #1017 of 2000 if I remember correctly. The paint was a black cherry color. Do you know these sportsters? I bought my 81 FXS lowrider,15000 miles all original, frame and engine still married to each other, but changed things out to a wide glide with narrow forks, 5 gal fatbobs, vintage 81 wide glide forward controls, lowered 2" swing arm, retro fitted a CV carb. It's all black with a touch of chrome, kind of like the Night Trains. Now that is a bike I want. Still have all the original painted tin and the carb with original ham can breather. I owned 2 late 60's Arimacchi/HD 350 Sprints as well. Love that little bike. Both modified to look like bobbers. I still have a picture of one somewhere. We used to hill climb with them. Loads of torque. Anyway, not much riding going on for me with knee issues.

There used to be a smallish Camaro community here but those guys were into the late 80's and on Camaro's, mine was the only first gen. Lots of older Chevies but those owners are getting up in years and don't see them around much anymore. ALL the young kids thumb their noses on anything old in my neck of the woods. Like you said, where are all these hobbies going? I have yet to even see something like a pro touring or pro street car here. It's pretty bleak. What it takes to go to the out of state shows would put me in a bind financially so I just stay local, which is fine by me. My problem as I stated before is locating a rebuilder for starters, alternators, carbs and things like that. Anything mechanical is a wash unless you can do it yourself. We have a local PepBoys and a few independent shops but none of those will rebuild anything. Oh just go buy something new is what I always get.

Yes, Hooper, I just misspelled it. There are some really good shows in the surrounding states if I want to go, but I just don't. I spend pretty much ALL my time with the family and it's rather large, or I ride my bike. Everyone I knew into cars when I was younger, Air Force day, are long gone or keep to themselves and their families. Then there are the kids with their 4x4's, ricers and the new Mustangs and some Fox bodies, it's Ford country here, plus the lifestyle is a bit different, lots a farms and lots of really small towns. If I hang with any crowd it's usually Harley guys, I have a ton of biker friends. I have an 81 FXS 1340 Lowrider shovelhead, all black, but I even just stopped riding it because of my knees, not so good these days. I go on bike runs more than any car stuff though. It is what it is.

No excuses, I just don't usually go north from where I live, which by many is called 'above the canal'. I live in farm country, nothing city about it and for the most part is just a space were people driving thru to the beaches, stop to eat and go to Dover Downs track/casino for the races. That's about it. yeah, I don't travel much, but I do get out when I have a need to go to Baltimore or DC or maybe Philly. Don't mess around too much in Jersey though, not particularly interested in going there for some reason. I'm not even interested in joining a club to be honest with you, I'm a club all by myself with all the grandkids that come to visit. Most of my problems are just finding good used parts for my Camaro and locating somewhere to send small parts to be rebuilt since there really isn't anything local.  Believe me, the yards here are picked through, mostly current year cars. Oh yeah, the Hopper guy that wrote the Camaro book???, he lives in Georgetown, Delaware about an hour and a half away. I don't know him though.

I certainly hope this is true. I definitely don't want issues with anyone here.

Welcome back Danny. It's just a matter of time now to get all the healing done. With all that you have to do for yourself, and taking care of your dad as well, you have quite a bit on your plate. Who takes care of you? No MRS. right?

That's OK! My daddy will buy me another car I can wreck. Seen that a lot in high school. I don't think I ever saw a rich kid with the same car for more then a few weeks when I was in high school in Atlanta. One kid was wrecking T/A Cudas on a regular basis.

69 AIM UPS NC8 has more info on the chambered exhaust too. Page 391,2,3

Anything firm on this guys? Still confused as to which coil was used on the flat hood, open element air cleaner. #293 or the #298. Been going thru the 69 AIM and found #208 for the L6 and #270 for the ZL2 set up.

846th Camaro after mine. Would love to see the body number to see if it, the body, was built before or after mine. The front spoiler looks wavy.

Been chatting with D & R Classics via email over the past 2 days about their chambered exhaust hanger kit and lack of hardware. Their hanger kits were designed off the original GM hangers from what I was told. On the hardware this was the last email I got this morning.

"Yes, I had a hard time even finding specs on the screws. I found a generic replacement for the tail pipe clamp and tail pipe hanger to frame rail as I found the spec on those bolts. The front hanger and clamp I have to pull off a car to make sure I have original samples. Then I can send them out to be copied with the correct marking and all.

You are correct, AMK does not have anything for those part numbers.

We are working on it and hopefully will have hardware soon. Glad you asked about them. I am not sure how we have not had them all this time.

Thank you"


I had written down all the hardware part numbers that were found on pages 294 and 295, UPC L35/L34 B5 and B6 from the 69 AIM and emailed them to D & R. Maybe they can do a really complete kit.
