Below are some pictures of my GSS project that I picked up in Canada during the summer of 2009. The bike was dispatched to Fred Deeley Ltd, Vancouver, on February 28, 1963 as an A10 R G Star Scrambler Red. It was one of only 16 shipped to Canada. The gent I bought it from worked for STIHL and said he spotted the bike in one of the warehouses. I believe it belonged to one of his supervisors and he purchased it from him with the intention of converting it to a Rocket Gold Star road model. I sold the bike on 8/28/18 to a collector in Connecticut.
This was my first basket case restoration and I soon found out I got a little more than I bargained for. I'm sure there are others out there that feel my pain! I had the engine rebuilt and had the magneto converted to an SRM Boyer system by Raber's here in San Jose, CA. G. Ullmann
Finally started the rebuild in earnest during the summer of 2015. Lot's of challenges!
