1963 Howard Gem Twin Cylinder.

Recommended Posts

This is my resurrected project that I started many years ago on tractorbox, but due to a number of issues never got finished. I purchased this machine in 2009 as a very good runner after wanting one for years. Overall it was very sound just needed lots of silly niggles sorting.

Here's where I'm up to with it, but some things are going to need improving on.

I am like you started the resto of the 180 degree twin version but its got left to one side for while now. Rebuilt engine and got it running but it was the toughest engine i ever had to get started. Loads of small issues ..leaks etc. Yours looks like it wouldn't take too much to finish.

Hi pat, it's not a million miles away, however my painting standard has improved scince I did this one so it will be rubbed down and re sprayed again. The idea is to carry on with this one when I'm delayed on my 1943 gem.

Good to see you finishing the Gem projects Gareth! Would love another big project but space is my problem and prices for storage are outragious!!!

Ive decided its about time that I wrapped up these projects before my health gets worse.

Ive had quite a few in my day to day life as well that ive hopefully overcome now.

I haven't yet worked out where im going to store them yet, im sure I can allways squeeze

a couple more in my sheds, lol.

 

Thats a tidy restore! Nice welding too

 

Wish I could take credit for the welding, however I had someone do it for me, as at the time

my welder was broken. My welding is strong but not that pretty.
