Resto mod cafe racer kind of thingie. Fun around town and looks and sound are most important in this project. Details are not fully envisioned yet.

If you start spending too much time with this one, that Italian princess of yours is going to get jealous and give you a bitch fit.

Shhhhh. I'm keeping her covered so she can't see what's going on. I'm sure she will get the majority of miles this summer.

Work? Kiddos? Whatz that? You couldn't go if you wanted unless you bought tickets in advance. They went on sale in December and 6000 tickets sold out in 13 hours............bottoms up.
