True! And another thought, now that mmc has deleted the 5 speeder will this allow Pete to start up production of the Ace 1.0?

Any idea how hard it would be to source the requisite Honda parts, etc.?

Honda are still making the GL1800, so spares will be plentiful - I can still get nearly all the parts for my 1979 GL1000! Can't imagine there'll be anything like the issues that current M3W owners are facing with the now obsolete S&S engine.

That said, they stopped producing the GL1800 in the US about 10 years ago. Does the ACE have a brand new drivetrain or is he using secondhand parts like a kitcar? Shouldn't be an issue - the Honda's are very well constructed, reliable and built to last. Owners won't face any of the issues that you get with the current V Twin.

(add - GL1800 mileages of over 200K are commonplace, with someone recording 425K)

This is a non-production car which can't really be compared with a manufacturer like Morgan. Just because the designer seems more competent in his component selection and engineering doesnt mean he should be compared to the folks in Malvern! wink

the gold wing's really do last, my 78 Gl1000 has 140k miles. It would have more but I have had newer bikes as my daily rider. It is harder and harder to get GL1000-1200 OEM parts but there are lots on ebay.

From what I understand he is sourcing the engines from bikes that were wrecked. Usually is the tupperware and front end destroyed, which he does not need. There are LOTS of rear ends on the market because of the trike market (putting two wheels on the back,

The next ACE f-6 will be on the road soon, silver with dark red leather, should really show off the Auto Union Type D's influence shades
