Reminds me of an episode in the projects when I was a kid. We had an older independent ice cream guy everybody liked. He gave credit, carried candy as well as ice cream. New guy came around, official Good Humor trunk, and threatened the old guy if he didn't leave.

The old trucks used to be basically an ice box on wheels, dry ice in an insulated body, with a little door on each side, and one in the back.

One day the new guy got padlocks put on the doors by the kids. After the second time, he finally got the message, and didn't return.

Happened to me a few times, the last time it caused me to get a ticket because the bike was moved just past the sign which said no parking here to corner. GRRR

Hey guys, I'm working on a project and need to make a vehicle street legal, was thinking a fairing a dash cluster from a vintage bike. Anyone have an old vetter fairing or the like rotting away or have a good place you can point me to?

Tomorrow I'll be stopping by motorgrrl and works engineering and the ;little shop in LIC near the bridge.

Ehh, have you ever been to/dealt with Val at Motogrrl? I'll hold my tongue but, her "I don't really care if you buy my things" attitude was a major turn-off. There are two shops within walking distance of her place with better prices and a much friendlier crowd.

Ha. Just watched a Bill Burr standup lastnight and he pointed out back in the day pedophiles at least worked for those boys and girls. Now there is the internet, in your day they had to be more proactive and get an ice cream truck or something.

Thanks, I think I'm at about 90-95%. Hope the other rider gets back on his feet quickly.

Motorcycle pants, small or medium...

Howdy--anyone got a pair of motorcycle pants in a small or medium size? I'd like to pick up a pair for my girlfriend. I'm willing to cough up some money.

Thanks!
