Nothing wrong with those forks that can't be fixed with some steel wool, the way I see it.

Fookers may disintegrate if you "buff" them with some steel wool.

Today I saw a 75 TY 175 literally laying in the highway near my house. I thought I was about to get a find of the day! I stuck around for a minute and the empty trailer showed up to claim it. Poor kid was using straps that left a lot to be desired. Bike still kicked over after the spill and it was so banged and rusted, I could not tell that it had an accident.

Maybe the same principle as when a tornado goes through Alabama and does hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of improvements.

The only focus on strokes in this CL item is on the ones he wants for his ego. Too bad there's not an approbation category.

Troof!

The ad should have said... "I'm going to price this fukker really high to see if some idiot will buy it and I can make a killing on it." funny thing is... a lot of that thinking gets transferred over into the ADV FM
