Ralf and I have just negotiated the purchase of a wrecked Stelvio that was rollerised at 10,000 Km. cheers

Anyway, it's in Tassie but will be being bought to the mainland in a few weeks and then we have to get Roadhog to drag it up here.

Plan is to use its *Good* donk to get Ralf mobile then he can rebuild his broken lump at his leisure or part the engine out, (It has a top end kit for rollerisation. There's a grand!

Now. Obviously this will involve an engine swap out. How many AU Ghettoists would like to turn this into a weekend learning school because I'm more than happy to throw the workshop open one weekend and walk any interested parties through what is involved in major surgery.

Break out your Elvis records ......

As the crow flies
On a cold and grey Bungendore morn
Another flat tappet is fucked and worn
In the ghetto
And Roper cries
'cause if there's one thing he don't need
it's another broken GRiSO 8V
In the ghetto

The other nice thing is that because it's a 'Repairable write-off', something still allowed in Tassie, I can fling my old boiler of a donk in it when it's refurbished, get it tarted up and it can go back on the road.

With a bit of luck the whole sorry excercise will end up as pretty much a zero-sum game.

I hate the fact that this sort of thing is even necessary but unfortunately it is. No point in wingeing, just roll yer sleeves up and fucking get on with it!

Ok, you asked for it Ron .......................... and Elvis would turn in his grave, if he were dead.

Street, can you plumb in the Karaoke music with a bouncing ball on these words.

ODE TO PETE ROPER

As the crow flies
On a cold and grey Bungendore morn
another flat tappet is fucked and worn
In the ghetto
and ol' Roper cried
'cause if there's one thing that he don't need
it's another stuffed GRiSO 8V
In the ghetto

Guzzi, don't you understand
this bike needs a helping hand
those rattly tappets are going to fail some day
Take a look for you and me,
blind bastards will not see,
So they simply turn their heads
and look the other way

Well the wheel turns
and the angry little man with a runny nose
works in his shed as the cold win blows
In the ghetto

And his fire churns
so he starts to burn the midnight oil
he rebuilds the GRiSO
it is bloody hard toil
In the ghetto

Then one day in desperation
invites us all to come
to show us how easy 'tis
rebuild heads, and drink some piss
And the old man fly's

A cabal gathers 'round the happy old man
with a Beetle map and a rollerised cam
In the ghetto

And the engine ROARS!
on a cold and gray Bungendore morn
another GRiSO is re-born
In the ghetto


And the old man fly's ......................

A learning experience, bracketed by a decent ride. That'll do it.

Hey Pete,

Is this a big tank Stelvio? Wanna sell some of the ancillary plastic?

*edit. Just saw that you're planning on re-habbing. Never mind.

This sounds like a helluva weekend.  Too bad I'm two hemispheres ( scratch ) away.

José - How can you be 2 hemispheres away, there are only two - Northern and Southern. When the video is done though, you will feel as though you have truly visited and lived.

Tony,
That was tongue-in-cheek - North then West. jocolor

Look forward to the video. I almost suggested a webcam, then decided I wouldn't stay up to watch anyway. Sleep
