Nice to have a talk with you & the other 'chatterboxers' in The Line Shack last weekend.
I came across that 1:9 Harley recently as well; looking for 1:35 bikes.
It's BIG !
I made a 1:12 Virago Chopper a whiles back; BIG is good for bikes.
That Harley you have Bill; would be a stunning 'shelf-queen' for a bike fan !

...The railcar I was trying to describe, in The Line Shack chat...
...was of interest to me for several reasons...
...one of which was to do with 'reversing'; issues of which have come up here.
As I said to Herb earlier on; when it comes to 'autos' like bikes, tractors & railcars...
...I don't know $4!& ... but I am here to learn !!
One of these days I may just start on a layout ! ...
...what I have sketched so far, is all based on 'switchback' type trackage.
Need I say more about 'reversing'.
This lil' baby is WAY too long for any small layout I'm likely to make.
But 2 autos joined like this, does I guess kinda solve 'the reversing problem'.
As I said ... been looking at 1:35 kit posibilities.
Less 'hood' & less 'middle' ... could look COOL !
Jose ... remembering this crazy-railcar (sort of)...
...was after seeing your Eureka railcar proto-photos.
I realy like the 'late build' (?) 'streamliner look'.

Still messin' with the Tamiya 1:35 Harley + other wheels/underframes...
...I thought I would find what I was lookin' for in this fairly quickly...
...but so far ... ?
Oh well ... only had the Harley Kit to mess with since Tuesday nite.
