    Just curious as to how the Saab engine was coming along. I've been enjoying driving the DKW wagon a lot lately. The exhaust note from the two-stroke is formidable as it whips up to about 9000 rpm,...

    I used 1 part molasses to 6 or 7 parts water. I've seen anywhere from a ratio of 1:4 to 1:10 used. I guess it would depend on how big your parts are and how patient you are. ;). I've got about 20...

    Coffee Break - You can use it as a fertilizer/compost supplement. I agree that the length of time that it takes to chew through rust, would not be good for the impatient types, but if you've got a...

    This may not be the answer that you're looking for, but I believe that several people use the chrome backs of the headlights as convex "side mirrors". Takes a bit of getting used to, but it works...

    Yes, the trail-breaker is what I was thinking of. I recall one coming up for sale on Vancouver Island a year or so ago. They were never all that common here, but there were a few around for sure.

    Very cool. I think there was a two wheel drive bike that folks used to use in the backcountry in Canada. It looked a bit like that, with the balloon tires, but was far from lightweight.
