    Default My Vacation Finds

    Been on vacation this past week and it has been really good. Went to an auction and won a motorbike on a bid and found some more items and still had time to go to the beach.
    Items coming right up.
    Im starting with the smaller items.
    These were found in a antique fair earlier this morning.
    1st 1943 British jerrycan, it has been painted in red but the coat of paint is really thin and in some parts the original paint can be seen. it only cost me 5 euros.

    And last my auction find.
    A 1971 Casal Siera De luxe, its the only motorcycle interily made in portugal.
    However it does not work, maybe because it was build in portugal
    Just kiding, its does not work because the fuel pump is not sending fuel to the carburator. Its a simple thing to fix. It has a lot of rust and the chromes are oxidated, It will take time but i will have restored back to its former glory. These are quite rare around here.
    The photos.

    A bargain! Watch out for those 'taillight'-thieves.
