My new barn find ‘54 KHRM

Postby 44UL » Fri Jan 21, 2022 1:08 pm

Well maybe more like left on the side of the barn, but it’s a mostly complete as ridden stock KHRM. This post may be a bit premature as it’s still in my van (drove from Long Beach, CA to the US Canadian boarder to pick up) but I bought it and an as raced ‘54 KH (has vertical Wico and MR3) 14 months ago...thanks to the world ending I couldn’t get them across the boarder until now.
It’s crustier than i hoped but i guess beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to finding an intact KHRM. It’s gonna be a long term mechanical resto, gonna start soaking rusty parts when i get home...anyway i am pretty excited after not being educated enough when i found the super clean original blue ‘55 KHRM 6 years ago or so.

Well pictures would be nice but my phone takes much bigger file sizes than they allow here...anybody have a 2022 era solution?

Send them to me, I'll post them for you. Alternatively, get them on a PC with photo editing software and compress or resize.

Yes Grant! I'm so glad you finally got to pick it up. I can't wait to see it. I'm heading to LA and SLC over the coming couple months, I hope I can cross paths with you and see it up close. Great score, thanks for keeping the fire lit. I'll post some photos of my KHK shortly.

Hi guys ! What a fantastic find and so original. I too have a 1954 KHRM and I live in Los Angeles so that’s 4 I know of in LA now . Maybe we should meet up and chew the fat . Mine has been in a box for 20 yeas now and I really should start on it .
