Finally some paint work getting done on the 1974 Satoh Elk 550g. Red and Cream as you can see.. these were very close to the original colors. The red was a little more orange on the original paint, but since someone had already started this in red, red it is. The images below show some of the process. Only Two things on the list that need done now. New fuel pump, I will either rebuild the mechanical pump or retrofit a 12v electric pump. The other thing is the exhaust, it used to exit down and out the back, I am going to put a stack on it. More pics soon!
Well heres something I picked up last night. Its a Satoh Elk s550g... I think its around a 1974. It has a 1L liquid cooled Mazda 4 cylinder engine. Runs like a treat, all 19.5HP of it through a high/low 3 speed. 6 speeds forward and 2 reverse. New paint is definitely in order, red and cream are the original colors I do believe. I'll have to do some research.
What happened? Oh.. I guess I havent been updating this in a while eh. Flat tire today! Stupid thing.
Thats dumb.. How do you make a little priview thingy.
There it is... Hell yeah!
