    Land Cruisers spotted in Traverse City

    I’ve been trying to get my 60 ready for the SAS#5 this August in Ouray. I went out there last summer solo and had fun running some of the more moderate/easy passes but quickly realized after 2 roundtrips to Colorado, that I needed some work on the 60. I mentioned the whole suspension spruce up...

    Land Cruisers spotted in Traverse City

    Just passed a nice brown 62 just south of downtown on Union Street with capped steely hubs. Looked sweet. I think it was a gal driving it. First time I’ve seen a 62 here in TVC...?

    Land Cruisers spotted in Traverse City

    I stopped going there after Pat and Mark left. Mark is now doing work on my 60 at his house out near The Crown. He has a lift. I had a Cruiser Outfitters suspension kit drop shipped right to his house last month. Leaf springs, shackles, everything. He cranked the swap out fast at $50/hour. He’s...

    The Coleman Thread

    Recently tried to get my 1973 220E and a 1977 220F up and running again. After watching a few YouTube vids, ordering some parts and failing to resurrect either, I discovered that Coleman will do repair work on Lanterns dating back to 1927 for a $55 fee. I shipped both out yesterday. 4-6 weeks...

    Early 3 tower Gamiviti Expo Roof Rack for 60 for sale - MI MUD price - $400

    I haven’t hammered out details/dates w/ Patrick/Bowfin. Once we figure out a date I can let you know. Possible 2nd week of April. Maybe 1st week of May. I think he has a big push of racks right now that he’s trying to get out the door, but once we nail down a date, I can let you know.

    Before and after photos from Cruiser Outfitters suspension kit I mentioned earlier: Last October on Engineer Pass. I travel light. No slide out kitchen or other heavy stuff. Kinda saggy.... Today after the Kit. Slight lift w/ the Heavy springs. Retired suspension....

    What did you do with your 60 this weekend?

    Winter seems to have left Northern MI and I pulled the 60 out of storage. I realized after two round trips to CO last summer that I needed to tighten up the suspension. The creaks and groans coming through Ophir Pass from my suspension were disconcerting. Bushings were shot. Leafs sagging...

    Soft Shell vs. Hard Shell condensation Q

    I found a Maggiolina Adventure on ExPo and it’s currently strapped to a couple pallets heading to Northern MI. Once it gets here, the Tepui Ayer will shift over to a racked trailer Ive been building. The Maggiolina hard shell will go on the 60. I’m hoping the Maggiolina fares better. I had a...
