I've notice lately, as well as in the past, but more so as of late, that if your bike makes the pages of a "Chopper Mag" that it makes you want to immediately put your pride and joy up for sale on Ebay. I won't clutter the forum with links but do a search on Triumphs or Hds and you are going to come across more then a couple that make mention of the bikes " fifteen minutes".

To reiterate, I'm just observing so don't give me the "it's his f'n bike he can sells it he wont tu" line. What I am saying is my bike means more to me then money can buy, well you know to a certain extent. And I'm not talking about bike shops whom are dependent on selling bike. Anyway just felt the need to babble.

I know what you mean, as I have contempating doing the same (mine was just shot for GreasyRider, or Biker or one of those Paisano Pubs).

My reason though is that the bike turned out far better than I thought it would and I was really after a more basic bike. If I do unload it I'm buying a 70's Ford pick up and 2 old trumps.

Fuck It.

Hey, are you the same cat that used to run the website with the half naked chicks selling shirts and stuff?

I liked that site.

It was shot Nov. 19, by Nate Ullrich in Des Moines. They didn't say when it would be printed. In fact I just sent the release form back today.

I think that you have it ass backwards...Stuff is not always easy to get...but stuff is easy to turn into cash

Just my opinion
