Hey Winger, Noticed you have a '71 Tiger. What are you running for a front brake on that?

So I guess since her brother showed up, the subject of if the chick is hot is no longer allowed??

Great story, reminds us all to listen when experience speaks, and answer questions when our experience will help others.

And THAT is what it's all about. Best "book" I've read in along time. Can't wait to hear and see the ending. Thanks

Can't you hyena's let me live.

Ok, ok. I only ran into her twice, She is very attractive with dark wavy hair and olive skin. That being said, I see myself having to hand in my shop keys come Saturday. The brother is in the armed forces and I think wears a crew cut. He is already pooping on my wheels. I give my life span 30 days before I am snuffed out into my honey nut cheerios from 100yrds away.

I thank you.

Factoid:
Now that the daughter has been dragged in. Years ago when she was young and in school. For whatever reason she had to live on the sail boat for a spell.
Well the school found out and decided to send a woman from social services to check on things. The woman shows up at night in the rain to the dock only to find no boat. Dick had been keeping his boat anchored out.

Dick shows up with a rubber dingy with leak. Paddles her out in the rain with the dingy. Lets just say even tho she had her own bed and a bathroom. They were less then pleased and made a stink about it. Dick said to the woman. I am sorry, if I was rich and had a Yacht, could she live on my boat.
Reply- well,,yes.

Not too late. I was able to grab some video of the front fender being made. Give me some time to get to edit something together.

Ok, the benches.

I was wondering about the same thing myself so I had asked him one day. He told me he makes one of these custom for every bike he builds..! I thought this was a waste of time. But i can only say that because I lack vision and talent. He hates motorcycle lifts and tables. He likes that he can reach into a lot of places and wheel em around.

I had my bike on my own lift that I brought. Well I showed up one day and my bike was in the air on that dolly. I was thinking how the hell did he get it up there? He pulled my bike up with chains. He is like a stunt man. He feels the need to climb around on top of the bikes up there. Well now the BMW has been stripped down and out one part at a time for painting. I will be helping on the re build up. So ask me how we are going to get a fully painted cafe racer down from that contraption.... I have no idea.

Brother that is a great story. I say keep it alive. Also very interested in that cafe racer, the BMW. I'm proud member of the Golden Gate chapter of the BMWCCA. Sure will share this story and maybe the pics you provide to our club events. Yes it's a car club but our two wheel bretherens are not that far behind. Well appreciated, bro.
