Originally slated to run the 2010 Motorcycle Cannonball coast-to-coast rally, this 1908 Thor needed the engine freshened up (not a big deal if you could buy parts at walmart for it). Vintage engine specialist and master machinist Ken Oliver teamed up with Andrew Givens to get the motor in good running order. The motorcycle ended up not doing the long-distance rally due to scheduling conflicts. The motor got a new piston and valve during the rebuild (which did not come from walmart).
