Just wanted to say hi and share a couple pics of my 1925 and 1926 Model TTs. I helped my grandfather get the Green 26 back in shape before he passed. It's got a Chicago auxiliary transmission and still retains its original motor matching the frame number.
The project, I got it in Statesville, NC back in 2000, when I was in the military in GA. The truck runs and has a Ruxtell 2 spd rear ended. It's been in and out of storage for the last few years and looks like I'm going to get started on it finally. It's missing the brake shoes and ruxtell shifter, but the shift rod is there. It's got the wrong radiator on it right now, but I have the original off to get a couple tubes fixed.
Just wanted to say hello from Arthurdale, WV and look forward to learning from everyone on here. - Matt
1925 Model TT
Welcome Mathew. Really interested in seeing the TTs but no pics here.
Matt sent a PM
Let's try this again. My 1925 Model TT Project and my running 1926 Model TT.
Matt ,great TT,. I have a 26 with Martin Parry wood cab. Thats this summers project. The forum is the place to be for anything T. Thanks for posting pics. Keep us updated from WV.
Drive safe and often
Thanks Dallas and Tom I responded to your PM. I'm looking forward to heading over to the swap meet in Luray in March and the one in Marietta, OH. Both are within about a 2 1/2 hour drive from me. Hope to pick up some parts and have a productive TT summer now that I have a job, where I have enough time at home to get something done. Just wish my grandad was still here to help. - Matt
Its not the same as having your grandad aroud,but there are plenty people that will take the time to look up info or post pics and explain from years of experience how to get the job done. All you have to do is ask. Great bunch here.
The only thing worse than one TT is MORE than one !
Welcome Matt, looks like you have a great start! Jim Derocher, AuGres, MI
What a great TT. Very cool project. Tim
Those are great pictures Matthew. It's always fun to see these projects. I hope you are enjoying the Forum.
Great project Matt. I have a 25 TT with a Ruckstell also. It gets more attention than any of my T's out in public. Bikers love the darn thing. Also, if you can't find shoes, I might have some in my pile.
Matt, I don't want to say too much for Dallas, but he will have a lot of TT parts come this spring. He may be able to help you out with some parts. Dave
Matt , Dave is right. I dont even know what all I will have . If your looking for something let me know. Remember Burgers statement. I think it a sickness. Beware!!! I will be making a trip to Daves around the 1St of April to get alot of goodies and 2 TTs.
Welcome to the forum Matt. I see lots of TT fun in your future
Love the green Matthew. Glad I'm not the only one.
Very nice, good to see another on the road.
The photo of the green truck show the front springs to be almost flat, just like the ones in my TT. Time to re-arch them ??
The tire-to-fender clearance is really small too.
