Raymond F. Pittam
I now have a B & S. 16 V-Twin Vanguard with the largd Duster 750 Clutch system designed for my car. I can cruse on the Highway at 30-37 M. P. H. It had the Old R. E. O. steel Spoke wheels on it with rear wheel brakes. I have changed the sprockets and Chain size and have a lot more Tourque and speed. I can clime many hills in high gear at 15 M. P. H. I have added a Surry style Top because like I said, I do drive t long distances Rain or shine. It has 400 X 18 " wheels and I bought the Original style of old tread tires, But learned real fast that on the power drive wheel I had to go to a 4 ply Honda Dirt Bike tire. I sabved a lot of money doing that through the oregon Motocycle Tire Store in Medford Oregon. They were half of what Cooker Tires charged me. With a lot better tire. With Cooker I had to have them send me several Intertubes because they were all full of small pin holes. I would never reccomend Coker to anyone. they are way over priced with extremely soft and cheap merchandise. I was extremely surprised because I have bought my Studebaker Stock tires through them. Very Expensive but the same style as what was mounted in 1950 and 1951.
I learned there are many companies that sell tires and beat Cooker all to heck. Just like many parts , there is a company in Ohio that can get me anything I need far cheaper than meny of those who are supposed to be the only representatives. I am 75 years young and been building old cars most all of those years. I owned a trucking company and had my own shops and mechanics for several years. You can see my web site as the featured Club on Oldride.com, I am the Mt. Shasta Orphan Club founder. I also have a touring 1901 Oldsmobile web site.
I am a married man, 74 years young, Father of one living daughter and three Grandchildren. My son In-law is a youth Pastor and daughter is a School teacher in Florida.
My hobbies are making wood toys, fishing, and going to my Horse Ranch and just enjoying the outdoors and Nature making new friends through classic cars.
