Been working on this 1947 MSS for a while. I was only going to overhaul the engine for a friend. After a while he got kicked out by his wife. Long story short, i had to "rescue" him, and bought the bike. I had always believed it was the other way around: wife out, bike in....whats the world coming to? Some "work" was done on the bike, a "genius" had had the hole bike sand blasted without taking it apart. Lots of damage don to engine castings, carb, magneto and chrome parts. It will never be a concurs bike,but nice and usable. Will keep you posted.
