After 40 yrs the 1968 R69US is back in service!
I started on it 19 yrs ago & after many starts & stops & abt $20K it finally seems to be straightened out.
Many tnx to those in this group & the Yahoo /2 group for their assistance.
Special recognition to Darrell, Dwayne, Richard S....Vech & Richard of course & Chriss Chambers who did the heavy lifting on the engine rebuild.

I have lost contact info for Chriss Chambers, does anyone have info on him? Still alive? How can I get in touch with him?
Tnx agn, hope to see u at the National Rally in Tenn.
Butch

I read something on the Yahoo

I read something on the Yahoo /2 list written by Scottie Sharp two years ago. He said that Chriss was retiring in the spring of 2017. Seems Chriss might live in Huntsville, Alabama.

Yes I think he has retired

Yes I think he has retired but my old fone # for him is bad.
He wanted me to tell him how the engine ran but I never got back to him on that because it just wasn't right. Turned out it was a bad carb. I had Bruce Chessell bore & sleeve that for a measly hundred bucks & now I believe it runs as gud as it ever did.
85K on the bike.
A real joy to have it back! Smile

I've looked at more info I have...here's an email address:

chrisjchambers@comcast.net

That's pretty old...I think I recorded that in 2011.

My phone number for him ends in -5186...does that match what you had?
