Very...

Very touching. I have done the same to a couple of sailing vessels.

Good story. A story with a heart. Merci !

I've seen this video several times, and I see something with each viewing that I missed previously. In this case, it was the young love between his parents. Remembering that kind of love moved me nearly as much as seeing the bike being restored and knowing the reason behind it.

My brother and I work on what was my father's Graham from time to time. When my father knew that he could no longer stay with us, he left me a letter asking me to look after the car. Working on a 70 years-old car that was driven year-round in Vermont has it's frustrations, but as long as Earle and I can draw breath, it will remain in our care.
