Was busy with my track official asssignments, so I put a "hitter" in my Bus....

I was racing the famed Shasta Bus.



Not a bad weekend...

Congrates you Honey Badger :))

I've been failing to get this bus together for Shasta for several years now:

It is currently at the Kombihaus body shop and Justin has promised to return it to me (with new used metal welded in) a couple months before Shasta.
Today I scored this for it:

$227 at Pick-n-Pull! It's from a '73 automatic super beetle so it needs a little attitude adjustment before I can use it, but I am so happy anyway. (Turns over by hand, minimal end play.)
'66 Kombi - $500
new used metal - $400
new used motor - $227
Stress-free Shasta - priceless

Hope you grabbed the voltage regulator for that 3-prong Alternator. Those are hard to come by these days.
Nice Score!

Nope, but I'll go get it tomorrow when I give them a core. Thanks for the tip.

I tried and failed to climb Shasta. At 13000 feet I started puking and quit. I'm going to try again next year but spend a night camped above 10000 feet to acclimate first.

Looking For a Honey Badger style bus for SST 13. Any Ideas? Go Big or go home.

I think you already have a HB Certified Bus.

Im sure there is talk about this somewhere here already, but I dont frequent the forum that much. Major portion of mendocino national forest is on fire including some sections that are part of SST.

Here is a map.

We'll have to see how things look once the fire is contained and out. Worst case, it might rule out an eastern Mendo route for 2013.

I heard a bay regulator from 72-79 was the same.

Howdy Newts! At long last, we got us a Black Bear, the official breakfast dive of the SST. In attendance for the Grand Opening were Captain American, Pinkie Deluxe, Frankenbus, and Bosco, along with all 5 brave members of the Intrepid Team Idaho: Rachel, Ross, Kris, Brent, and myself.

Do you think anyone brought a camera?

Oh well. Thanks Black Bear for gettin' 'er done, thanks Bosco for starting after sitting 3 months, thanks Rachel for the great idea (and buying!), and thanks to everyone who didn't tell Lou, since it's not my Birthday.

It's never my Birthday.

NorCalRiviera Thu Jul 19, 2012 12:32 pm

Ha! Cool.

We've got one now in Milpitas (about 10mi from where I used to live and about 3mi from my work). I even now have a Black Bear coffee mug here at work. :D

Anyone else jonesing for some cold weather and dirt roads?

THAT"S a Shasta bus if I've ever seen one!

NorCalRiviera Thu Jul 19, 2012 2:29 pm

Was that once a Riviera?

74Class11 Thu Jul 19, 2012 2:42 pm

I think it was a Riviera.

Judging by that window hole...that's what it was. Plans for those holes?

...that sounds so wrong!

74Class11 Thu Jul 19, 2012 3:30 pm

I was giving a window frame that look like it's a Riviera.



It doesn't fit the hole.


NorCalRiviera Thu Jul 19, 2012 3:32 pm

Well, Riviera basically used whatever was on hand in any given week to build their campers.
