My Multnomah County Twinsonic project

Found this bar on eBay as a regular old 12. What caught my eye was the Multnomah dome on it. Negotiated a price and it was on it's way to me.

The seller promised to package it extremely well. What a joke as you can see from pictures... Thankfully it arrived undamaged.

I was able to secure the CTS tray and passenger side gearbox from @shues and a used blue dome from @ryan to make this complete. Tore it down, degreased it, flipped the tray and motor for the passenger side and Bam! My own Multnomah bar at a fraction of the cost that they've been selling for!

Never knew the front facing light would flash on those. Either way, that's a super classy piece!

Thank you! From what I have read, they didn't steady burn the front, but had it flashing

That's a great reproduction of an extremely rare version of the Twinsonic. I am surprised that it arrived without damage considering how poorly it was packed.

You and I both. Seller got an earful from me. My heart sank when I first opened the box and found the miserable packaging job, so I started taking photos thinking I'd be filling a PayPal dispute. Crazy that it made it ok when I have boxed and bubble wrapped bars with 4" all around and them break

By the way, your motor rotation is reversed. Just noticed that in the video.

Great job on the restoration!
Lt.214, that bar looks familiar ;)
Never said it was mine!:cool: It's a beautiful bar as well! Both are great examples of rare twinsonics. I would like to find one myself for the collection.

Another great addition to your collection. Great job with the spruce-up and very cool to end up with a Multnomah bar! Hat tip for the vid as well. :)

Thanks guys. This has been a piece that I never thought I'd be able to get in to the collection. A little hard work paid off
