I believe that the preferred term here is 'eclectic,' though 'fucking nuts' runs a close second and is easlier to spell.

local restrictions; hard to say, the whole oldtimer law system is currently under review..
as long as it is original you're safe..
when it is seriously re-build (like a V-rod) you kinda depend on the goodwill of the cops

but law states clearly

- no roofchops
- no extended wheelbase
- no changing of the direction of the doors
- no shaved door handles
- no altered braking systems
-...
for the moment ..

doesn't this kinda define a Vrod?

Wow. This really makes me appreciate all the modifications we can get away with in the U.S... Sometimes I am surprised when these home made autos pass inspection.

3 years later and this bug is still up in the garage
time flying by and not an inch closer to a finished product

time to get this show back on the road?
who else lost track of time on a project and did the "bug" ever died, or did the feeling you need to finish it still remain?

I guess this is my "hello again"
Here we goooooo

Good to have you back! My neglected project is a RE-5 Suzuki. Picked her up with another bike in '96 or '97. Sold the other bike with the intension of getting the Suzuki running and also sold. Seems like life keeps getting in the way. This winter for sure!

Projects lose priority status quickly for me. Losing interest isn't a big deal. I always end up back at it again sooner or later

It took me a few years to get the engine sorted out and back into my 1958 and one day with a friend to get the sodding thing running. And two days to sort out the electrical gremlins and the hood latch. Now it just needs the brakes bled and its fine. Insane how restricted your guys cars are. Makes me appreciate the states a bit more.

@radiotrib

thanks man, good to be back
Every year i try to get to Rosmalen... and every year i fail bad cars and an even worse health..

but i'll get there one day

@DrHax

Restrictions here are tight as hell, leaving no room for some imagination... So it is basically stock or some small mods...
Or you can go like me and go completely illegal
i registered it as a stock bug and went to the vehicle checkup place. As it is registered as an "oldtimer" i only have to go once (until they change that rule,which they have been saying for years) so after i got back i started to dismantel it again and cut it up..
This means i am now paying registration, taxes and Insurance for a heap of VW parts in progress, but when it is driveable i can just slap on my plates and get on my way

Glad to hear some of you had/have lagging projects and are still around.

I see that i can do some more updating on the pics since the last pics are from the backside...
i'll get to work on that soon..
I guess i can surprise you guys with a feature you wouldn't expect in Belgium

take care !!
