It'd be a crappy thread. I don't know anything about geometry.

Son of a gun! There's George from Trail's End. I visited his shop back in 1989 and will never forget it. BMW was already well on its way of purging the old shops but there he was with 1 0r 2 new K bikes in the house (?) and working on a bike in the shed with a light that he moved depending on which side of the bike he was working on.

He also inspired me with his G/S that he had removed all the necessary bits from and built a sidestand for.

Thanks for the pic!

Cool thing is, as of a couple years ago he still rides it all the time. It's still his errand runner.
