Ok back to the 345 pictures. Lol. So went to today to go check on my 345. I have it in the shop getting rear main seal replaced two new bell cranks, new rear air bags and a few more things. Here are the pics of her. It's kind of sad if you ask me. Can't wait to get her back home.

That is the place. Dave is the manager. I will ask for mechanics name. I really can't even begin to tell you how good he is. Yes I replaced both bell cranks with the hendersons. Forgot to take pics of it. I will when I get back. He told me that will keep me on the road when a tractor trailer blows by me. I went with a friend of mine this past weekend to hernando ms to pick up the 84 300 that was last on eBay. That's a whole other story. But it didn't have a tag axle it drive so good. No sway but had a lot of other issues. We drove my jeep wrangler that I pull and towed it back. Really drove nice. I was happy to drive so I can see the difference. He had broke his leg and couldn't drive. It is a good unit. And he will make it great. Now I am not the only Moho owner in Athens GA. lol

Hi Keyair and Dale,


Yes, that is an all new dash. I am in the thick of a top to bottom, front to back, overhaul of my 325. It has been a fun way to bring together a lot of different interests.
I purchased my coach through the classified section of this forum about a year ago. It was originally custom ordered from the factory by a fellow named Jim McClure, who I believe was the U.S. Top Fuel Harley drag racing champion at the time. It was configured as a transporter to carry him and his bike to various events around the country. He ordered it with the Cummins 5.9 option which makes it even more unusual, and added a Gear Vendors overdrive unit. It passed from him to another racer that crashed it, and then to a third racer that did the major repair work. I guess its up to me to carry it to the finish line now. I've got to say that the thing is somewhat of a hot rod in its own right. On one test run with no speedometer installed, I chased everyone out of the left lane and got some incredulous looks from four wheelers that have undoubtedly never seen anything as big, as old, and as silvery go quite that fast. I'm guessing 90 mph plus; owner #2 says she'll do a ton. Came home feeling mighty proud of the old girl that day. She has since been christened "the Bullet Train".
Being an avid biker, the history of this coach really struck a chord with me. I knew it was rough when I bought it, but not as rough as it has turned out to be.
I'll attach a few shots of some of the different things I've been working on.

The 11' long aluminum ramp is made up of lengths of "expanded metal" that are welded together. The stuff is very light weight, has a fantastic "anti slip" surface texture, and slides out from beneath the floor to load motorcycles.


A new 2" x 2" aluminum section was installed across the full width of the cabin. This supports a piano hinge that allows the entire new upper dash face to fold open for access to all wiring and greatly simplifies any future work.

I cut, chopped, and sectioned pieces of the existing dash and glove box to reuse as components of the "new" dash. It took a fair bit of time, epoxy resin, metal, rivets, and chewing gum. Most of the original dash panel rocker switches have been converted to toggles, and relocated to a hinged panel that was previously the glove box.


Charly.

And a few more episodes from the show.....

I found a shop in Nebraska that did the engine turning finish work for the dash face panels.

A local friend did all the cut outs for gauges and switches on his water jet.

The new gauges are by Marshall Instruments in California.

The billet A/C vents are from a company called Vintage Air that specializes in custom hot rods.

And the clock, which measures about 8" in diameter, was made to match the gauges by a company called New Vintage, in Michigan.
