Hey all, registered on here a while back and never got around to an intro. I'm just outside of Vancouver BC Canada eh!
Picked up a 78 Tradesman survivor a little over a year ago and have been slowly fixing it up and driving it a bit as I go.

A buddy spotted it covered in dust in a carport so I knocked on the door and made a deal. This is how I found it:

FOUND!

DUSTY

2 is better than one!

Bolted up some Centerlines

new tank and sender

New brakes all around

maiden voyage

First camping trip

last one for now

Sorry about all the links I couldn't figure out the Flickr thing

Still needs some major rust repair along the rockers and rear corners and it has some ignition issues I need to sort out before the spring. Looking forward to hitting up some events around BC and Washington next year!

Welcome aboard!
Slowly fixing up and driving is my thing as well:) If you ever on Vancouver Island let me know, I'm in Campbell River, where beer and good times in summer is mandatory.


If it's broken- I'll fix it! If it's not- I'll break it to figure it out how it works so I can fix it.
