Saw this thread yesterday in Olds Cool. Glad to see it moved.

A couple of recent photos--



And an old photo (2003)


And a real old photo (me Mum in 1928 on an HD):

Finished seat-rack-pannier mod last summer and stopped at the old swimmin' hole for a beauty shot. You can see the water line on the new bridge supports due to occassional flooding.

Nice bike and nice riding! Now get out there and ride now that the 110 degree weather has finally passed!

Some really great looking bikes in this thread. But this one really fires my rockets, and I usually dont care for red bikes. These old airheads are so simple, yet beautiful.

Haha. Yea I didn't think it could either. Just got it going a bit and revved it and dumped the clutch. Quite hard on the drive line I'm sure. 3,100 miles of hard riding on that trip and it never let me down.

And I read your whole build thread a week ago and didn't noticed that you lived so close....you have a PM.
