If you'd let go of the cocktail shakers , I need a new set for the high-boy {sprayer]. They take the bark out of the V-four Ford industrial motor.

This is gonna be fun..... my FIRST thought was about those apes.... man, they got some real real cred don't they!






and then the cocktails....they were my second thought!

I just paid $25 for some old Triumph take-offs to put on my XS650, just for kicks, and they do a helluva job with a nice tone... KEEP 'EM!!

Cleopatra Cheney Princess. We got her when the kid was almost six, so that makes her 13. That also accounts for the name.
Schipperke's are wonderfully intelligent and energetic little dogs with a big heart. I wouldn't be without one.

I have had two frames powder coated by these guys.

They have done an absolutely beautiful job on both of them at a reasonable price.

Can you tell me more about this picture? Are those nuts and bolts powder coated or painted?

Can't wait to see the progress!

Wow you are clipping right along, nice stuff. Don't forget to repaint the back tire.
