I've had these two 73 Starfire projects for a couple years now, but just got motivated to get them going. One is a 650 and the other a 440.
Still looking for some parts, but have hit both chassis hard for the past two weeks and got a lot done. Helps to have done a couple 73's before. (my completed 295 and 650 have both found new homes in the midwest)
I need 440 pipes.....anyone have a spare set? Two of the pipes are the same as 295/340.
A LOT of work went into getting them this far......but I don't have many pics to show it. (paint stripping, hole filling, tunnel mounting, etc, etc, etc) I put a new BouleyBuilt tunnel on the 440. West Coast Vint Sleds bars and post, thanks Mike!
Original 650 chassis from Hegwood/Haug in Minn. It needed a bit love. Pepsled performed feats of aluminum magic. Looks fantastic now and will have almost no body filler.
Fitting motor plates and trying out the beautiful seats by Conrad. An original style for the 650 and an Eastman style for the 440. Can also see one of my completed (but unpainted) dual outlet 73 tanks that are correct for triples.
Trial fitting the newly reproduced (Neverenoughtxs) pan onto the 440. Fits great! It will be painted the correct blue soon.
Fitting the clutch gaurd.
Fitting the chaincase on the 440.
Rails mounted on the Neverenoughtxs hood. HOURS of work, but worth it, it fits the pan great.
650 motor is completely restored. Assembled by Pepsled, thanks bud! It has been waiting for me to get the rest of the sled done. The 440 needs to be completely gone thru and made pretty. Have correct Keihin carbs for both motors.
