Re: best place to buy a wrecked bike?

I've had good luck with crashedtoys but I'm a little biased since they are 30 miles from my house. The thing I like about them is the quality of the description and lots of pics so I can see what I...

Re: Picked up a 78 hawk

Re: Lets see your Guzzis...

Yep, that's the one. It was in the yellow paper which I don't usually read. They had a guy look at it Saturday and he said he would be back Sunday to buy it. I talked to the PO's wife and she said...

Re: Lets see your Guzzis...

Thanks for the heads up on MG Cycle, I foresee Gordon becoming my new best friend soon. You are right, Luck is in the middle of nowhere but I went 40 miles northeast into the wilderness to snag the...

Re: Please help identify this tin

Yeah, the stuff has never been installed but there are a couple of paint chips on the tank and it looks like someone laid a cloth on the tank while the clearcoat was still wet. There is a fabric...

Re: My first basketcase

Re: If it seems too good to be true.....

It's not his fault, it's mine for accepting the job without checking to see if the motor was froze. He told me that the motor ran and I believed him. Had I known that the motor was froze I would not...

Just for the record that whole "burn to a crisp" look is probably not the most attractive mark to put on your bike.:D

It is a nice looking ride bro and riding is what it's all about so keep it up!

Re: If it seems too good to be true.....

Yeah, I'm inclined to agree with you guys. For a rich guy, he's quite the cheap ass wanting me to put up the money and labor for a project that I would no doubt lose money on. Shit, I could dump $10K...
