Interesting.



I have high deductibles, or what I'd consider higher. Maybe that has something to do with it.

I also have multi-line, but I didn't think that did anything for Motorcycles.

Long story short some of us were sitting around at work talking about bikes. One of my co-workers mentioned that he had a friend who wanted a bike out of his driveway. I asked what he had and how much. He said it was an 81 Goldwing and that he just wanted it gone. Oh, ok I'll come pick it up but I'm going to give the guy a case of beer. It was in pretty rough shape from sitting outside for a couple of years but the PO was smart enough to top up the tank and add some decent stabilizer. Flash forward 12 days and a grand total of $513.80 out of pocket for everything from a new battery to the last drop of WD-40. My wife and kids even got in the act cleaning and polishing. Boy, that aluminium foil and water trick sure does the job for cleaning up chrome. Some of the before and after picks of the chrome parts are unbelieveable.

You see, I gave away a couple bikes in the past (one running one not) to friends who wanted to get into riding. Payed it forward since one of the bikes was given to me for some beer. Karma smiled on me.
Tear down.

Wife and kids getting into it.

Before and after chrome.


Finished.
