You can do ANYTHING with a Sawz-All, some junque parts and a welder ......  ::) - oh - and don't forget the frosty, fermented beverage of inspiration .......  ;)
Ah yes, the old hell with a hammer and a devil with a torch routine! :D
Hammer to fit - paint to match, I say! Hahahaha!
Now you are talking my language.....My brothers ;) Good old Irish ingenuity as a good friend would say. That is a pair of militarys done right! Cool as hell !
 Scooter, I'm noticing a G-5 engine in a C-5 frame, No? Love those ammo boxes and the rear fender rack, modified from a C-5 passanger seat perhaps? Nicley done. Use what you got and make it work, like it was there all the time. Damn, now I want one of them to :P

Just wanted everyone to know that everywhere I stop on my Black and Chrome G5 Deluxe, I draw a small crowd ! I recently stopped at a truck stop on my way back from Lake Tahoe and had six guys checking out the bike and two taking pictures. It's a great conversation starter....very cool way to meet new people.

I call it EDF ( Enfield Delay Factor)  ;)
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Sounds like we apprenticed under the same task master.

Are you a fellow alumni of the Kellen Keller school of flash burn welding ?

Why yes, yes I am :D

The Irish ingenuity on THAT bike was just enough G5 parts to make it a kickstart bike!! The other side (and most of the rest of it) is all C5 .... it's QUITE the little hybrid! Hahaha! I was diggin' through piled up boxes of detritus from three popped engines (not REM's fault on any of them!) to get the needed "raw bits" on that one. The rear rack is Electra, the part that it's on is the bombastically strong rear C5 pillion frame - the seat went out as a warranty and both metal pieces were scrounged from the dumpster (scratched, bent). The "ammo boxes" are actually Iron Barrel Military panniers (old rattling JUNK! Haha!) that were modified to fit the C5. They were modified on my Iron Barrel bike by a Pontiac that punted my sorry butt about 20 feet - so they were perfect to do the "stomp fit" onto the C5 ..... I think it has that rough and tumble look for the discriminating military enthusiast (read - no two pieces the same green! Haha!) - but with enough little details to keep the eyes moving and the face grinning. It also RUNS like a little minx as well ..... it was assembled from JUST the right combination of "almost new" and "nearly new" .....  ::) I'm really tickled that you think it's cool! Thanks!!

I learned to weld like a Gorilla - Strong, but ugly!! Hahaha! Now - if I could weld like a GASHOUSE Gorilla, I'd be pretty pumped up!  ;)

Shit.....that makes two of us. I ain't the best nickle roller around either. Thank the lord for the guy who invented the electric hand grinder and the sanding disk. Cleans up them splatters and fat spots real nice. ::)

Hahaha! This is like what I've often said about painting ...... "If you can't paint - learn to sand and buff ..." I think it's the same basic technology here .....   ;)
