As mentioned by Richard Hahn in his article on BMW/VW conversions Dilbert was a master machinist that made a handful of conversions. He also sold adaptor plates and assisted other with their builds.

1968 VW motor
1 of a kind headlight assembly with multiple gauges
TX antique plates. (reg until 2013)
Bike is in Austin, Texas
Bike has been in storage (not run) since 2001.
Motor did turn when I purchased the bike from my uncle.
I was not able to work on it so I fogged the pistons and it has been sitting in my garage since 2007.
Not sure why but I cannot crank the motor now.
