The growers in Adair county used the same rigs, to protect their plantations from trespassers.

I bet it just fell off a 4-wheeler as it crossed the road. (or was being unloaded from a truck)

Question Cables

Is there anyplace local that does cables (brake, clutch) for old bikes? Or should I just get some ordered online.

Dunno why you think you will ride? You'll give yourself a flat putting the tire back on anyway.

x2, it isnt gonna make a bit of difference missing one spoke. Heck ive seen guys lose 2 or 3 spokes and still go on to race all day, clearing huge jumps etc. But then again, we are talking about Doc here.

I don't doubt it. They will continue to poke and prod and find more ways to deprive the American citizens of their freedoms one small chunk at a time.
