Maybe not as green as he is cabbage looking if you look at other vids. Certainly astute with his buys a 93 mile Hercules wankel, not something you see everyday. I don't think he is just a typical Harley guy or how he tries to portray himself.

Exactly... It looks as if he is trying to give the impression that he has stumbled upon a really rare, valuable bike without realising it.. although I have no idea why he would want to..

Nope...I got no clue.

I think his wife's friend has been turned over by a guy who knew what he was looking at, and he snagged a K0 for pennies. Which he is 'restoring' by cleaning it.

I lost interest where he stated he had no idea how to clean the coils.....or clean the motor. But he knew how to shift some heavy corrosion off chrome. He is either a very poor video maker or trying very hard not to show how to do things, or how he did things. 

Looking at how his 'clean up' had progressed, I am pretty sure he knows what he is doing. The paint finish he had was no amateur rattle can job and he has gone to the trouble of buying the bearing removal tools as well. His results were pretty good on all the bits he had worked on, but all we got was before and after shots.

Makes no sense.

Funny how he goes to the trouble of showing a close up of the engine number, without actually restoring anything.

Either he's trying to bait us into making him an offer he can't refuse, in which case why not just say so, or he's doing this simply because he's smug about what he bagged for a pittance, knowing full well it's a sandcast, but doesn't want his wife's friend seeing this and realizing he's been had.
