So, I haven't been too active in this blog recently. Not that I haven't been working on my Enfields. I've done a bit of work on the 500cc engine, and I'm working on adapting a set of Suzuki GT 750 front forks for the Interceptor.

But I got a bit distracted by my 1965 BMW the last few weeks.
I've got this idea that I need to mount some dual sport tires on it. Obviously, I can't run this type of tires all the time, so I needed some wheels. I have wheels. All of them rather tatty, a bit rusty...
So the distraction from my preferred project was rebuilding two of these old wheels to mount a pair of Shinko 244 3.50x18 dual sport tires ($44.95).

I didn't take any "before" pictures. Here's what I ended up with after a two week distraction.

The BMW is now ready for any adventure.

And back to work on the Enfields. Stay tuned, I'm almost ready to post pictures of a very interesting set of forks.
