El coolio! I had a basket WLA in the late '80's and a trike frame w/ a servicar rearend. I had the engine rebuilt then ended up selling everything but the rearend, cheap.What a dumbass, well, hindsight is 20/20.
What direction are you going in? Keep us posted.

Nice score, I was also going to ask about the paint. When it rains, it pours.....I didnt think me buying one copy of your book would make you so wealthy!
