So I picked her up and road the 2 miles home with wet roads and new tires  :114:

So obviously not much to report other than she is home and I need the front fender extender - whats available in the US?

I got the Pyramid brand extenda fender from bobs-bike-stuff
User ID bobs-bike-stuff on e-bay.

Item came relatively quickly and communication was good. I'd purchase from this reseller again...

Just my .02 on this

I've not installed mine yet as I want to wait another week or 2 to p/u from dealership as I'd like to ride it home not trailer it due to much SALT on our roads here :005:

Waiting for winter to be over..both physically and officially!!! :190:

BTW love the 914 in the garage...been thinking of getting one to add to the fleet. Is that the 6? 1973? very cool :062:

Oh and Happy St. Patty's DAY...a WEE BIT EARLY :008:

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Thanks

I am also waiting for winter to be over, but enjoyed some spring skiing yesterday and am going again on Wednesday with my adult son

The 914 is a 1974 2.0l 4 they came out with after canceling the 6 at the end of 72

FYI I can't afford a 6!

For the record, my 914 is driver quality and worth about the same as our bikes

Nice like the wheels they are cool :062:

There are a couple for sale up here but most are from the southern US as the ones new here are almost always eaten away. The "HELL" hole is GONE all together on most. And yeah a dd is about the price of the Z...I'll have to stick to my other TARGA cars for now....but always loved the 914 and the IMSA verson I saw couple years ago...Group B racing version...it was killa!!!

Very nice car and stance is right... :152:

Oh yeah I've researched them a bit over the years. I know of one not far from me that sells them regularly. But a few I found were fairly cheap and of course due to these issues.

But other cars I've owned had similar issues (or they were prone to) as well. Problem up here is finding ones that are still in good shape body wise.

Even ones from southern US if driven here in 3 seasons (and during rain) can also start having issues over time...without proper protection.

911's etc have become crazy priced as now the 914 is rising in sales...good for you not so good if you want to find one :003:
