I have an old 1956 KR basket case I've been meaning to do something with for years, and finally decided to get moving on.
It's an old flattracker. Am I going to make all the purists mad and destroy its value if I do it as a KRTT instead of a KR? I know they got converted back and forth in the old days, and you could even buy kits for the purpose, so as to use one machine for both. But collectors are funny people these days, when it comes to engine numbers and such.
Oh, and does anyone know what the deal is on alloy rims on these machines? Several people have told me they didn't come along until 1960, but if you look at the picture on page 49 of Girdler of the 1958 Laconia, both KRTTs appear to have alloy.
