Re: Carborator rebuild questions

Re: Overland Expo West May 20-22, 2016

^ Vince, I have never been to the states. If I was going to do it I would want at least 6 months to a year for some exploring.

Can't afford to do that until kids are finished school, so it might be a while yet. :wink:

Re: Leather Steering Wheel Cover

I had one of those but I felt like it was just too big and thick. The alternative was easy... Go to a bike (bicycle, not motorcycle) shop and buy a package of black handlebar tape. Mine held up great for years and was a great improvement over the stock wheel. Cheap too! You could also try a sports ...

Re: M Vier Sechzehn- US m416 trailer with a Swiss accent

Trailer looks awesome and very jealous you could find it for $200. 8)

Are the safety chains long enough you can cross them over? So if the pintle ever drops the hook it would fall onto the crossed chains rather than dig into the road?

I was also thinking it would be nice to put a bed under the hatch. It would be nice to wake up in the morning looking straight out at a beach/mountain/desert/lake/whatever.

Note he listed it as a 712M, it is not. It is a 712W.

Note the high vaulted roof when compared to an ambulance. You can stand up in it unless your family name is Lurch.

The box does come off via helicopter if you have one.
