Atlanta AirHead Old's Cool Pity Party

Atlanta Airhead Old's Cool Pity Party @ the Arizona Pub, Wednesday, 12/14, 7:00ish
This thread is an off-shoot from hardwaregrrl's recent rear frame issues, and it turned into a pity party, so...

Bring your stories of misery about Airhead maintenance, custom fabrication or whatever pisses you off at the moment.
Un or underemployed stories welcome too!

Who's all coming?

coming with a pity story (as of 12/13):
MoMan
hardwaregrrl
bgoodsoil
baldwithglasses
careboy
beater
Ritebike
blain.hale

can't decide on their pity's worth:

Yup. It started @ the seller's shop but then after a trailer ride home in the rain it was hard starting & wouldn't fire on both cylinders. Tons of surface rust, starter & headlight work rest of electrical stuff doesn't. Nothing really missing but lots that needs soap, sandpaper & flat black rattle can. I will try to bring photos of my non-airhead projects that I need to unload (nice 1975 KZ400S that's nearly finished ; 1984 Honda Passport motor swap) - free beer for anyone that buys one!

I am in, Jenna, shoot me a text or call me to remind me on Weds. I am celebrating my birthday this weekend, and don't expect my memory to retain anything.
