I have the extractor and it is useful for a wide array of moving fluids but a lot of people don't deal with many fluids.
For brake bleeding only the MityVac 6830 air vac is the cats ass.

I have a Mity Vac, I don't remember which model. One of the pressure and vacuum models.
I've never used it.

Paul,
Thanks for the pictures of the bikes you have so skilfully restored along with the history lesson. About 8 years ago I was offered a 75 GW in excellent condition for $1200. It didn't buy it. It was taken to the auction at Vintage Motorcyle Days and sold for less than $1200 if I recall correctly. I was amazed.

This is not and has never been a motorcycle country.
Auction prices for even the extreemly rare are a fraction of what they can get for a "kit" roadster.

The Mecum Motorcycle Auction in Las Vegas can wear you out looking around and by quite depressing once the bikes hit the auction floor.

For the true enthusiast Barber is a must see.
