Just checked in. Got pictures of early Elgin motobike which I plan to restore back to original medium range battlestar. As soon as I figure out the picture posting thing, I'll add them in.
While cleaning out from under my bed, I pulled out the frame-set of what initially appeared to be just another early motobike as were so common and plentiful on Terra Acirema during the period from SD9.9.10 thru SD9.9.30. But then we all did a double-take when we began to discover evidence that this was not the case at all! Numerous empty mounting holes clearly not intended for standard accessories, burn patterns on the skin and tell-tale scaring of the skeletal structure could lead us to only one seemingly impossible conclusion.
Could this really be? A quick conference call to the Sneers and Blowbucks Institute archives confirmed our suspicions. What in fact stood before us was an actual Pre-Warholian Aissurian Scout ship! This revelation alone was mind-bending enough, but that was just the beginning. . .
Many of these ships had been converted to salvage transports after the invasion. Cruising to earth at 20 year intervals to collect used cigarette filters which are highly sought after as fuel in many remove regions of the universe. Most of the original fittings are missing of have been replaced with common replacement items. That fork has to go!
This should make some interesting bar units.
Hmmmm. . .
A little fabrication and cleaning.
Legend has it that these ships were a little dicey to handle at subsonic speeds and very often were lost during re-entry.
Most of the original drawings and plans have long dissapeared and we have to rely on ancient you-tube archives and stories passed down from eldens to recreate the missing pieces.
Since most of the original equipment has been either lost or stolen, we had to rely on drawings and pictures unearthed from graffiti which was discovered on the walls of the Paris underground.
Recreations were performed by professional drivers on a closed course.
In some cases, we were able to adapt pieces from other solar systems in place of originals
The final mock-up of the original communications and galactic positioning systems resemble in almost every way those pictured in our archives
Some more easily located items are rounded up and mounted in their appropriate locations.
later. . .

I wonder if a charity drive would have turned that thing away? Great starting point.
Big points for the lighting system! Those old flashlights were some classy designs. Way cool!
Now as for the rest of the bike, It's just reeking of FreakBikeyness! Looking forward to a guided tour of this ships components!
You're an incredibly strange and clever man, may I call you friend?
Thanks for the great pics,
