Doing some nice work yourself phx ! Bike looks great! Andre only has one of those in stock at the moment. If it sells before you decide to buy another, give him and week or two and check again. He'll make more. Good luck with your next bug!!
Don't give up yet.What it's worth all done is what someone is willing to pay for it.There's an old saying, one man's trash is another man's treasure. True! Keep looking, parts will come. I will tell you that if you want to get that bike original, you will spend a lot more than 500. Cheers!
Check ebay often! What model Bonanza did you buy and what wheel do you have, go power or bean? There's a rear kidney bean wheel on ebay now with sprocket and incorrect brake (not Bendix) assembly and a couple sets of fenders in there as well. Got wallet? Get ready for sticker shock!!
Hi manchester1! Thank you for the suggestion, that's my plan B.I have some 5/8 chromoly stock I was going to use if I couldn't find a shaft except I was going to grind a flat spot on both ends and use collar locks instead of clips.It will be awhile before I need the shaft, I just finished...
