Another bike to ride since I sold my ironhead, and won't be working on the knuckle for a little while. I picked it up tonight...'51 pan/shovel.

This one I'll be un-chopperizing. Its going to get a full hinged rear fender with tombstone taillamp, front fender, stock bars and riser, floorboards, and a sprung seat. I might use it as a commuter.

Maybe not a brand new trend. I took the blue Panhead and turned it into the red and white one in 1992. But now it's going back the other way.

I have to admit that no matter what a bike looks like when you get it, you have to change it and put your mark on it.

Fuck Yeah!!! Maybe I'll start a shop Old-Timerizing choppers...bolting on Chinezzz made reproduction harley parts....well maybe not.

Jay, I saw your new forks on the Fuck board...I like 'em, but I liked the old ones too!

And does anyone make a big burley 21" tire, something tall and kinda fat?

Nimrod,

Screw the bike, I want your house! That wooden outbuilding is awesome! You still haven't sent me any pictures of your new house (I can only assume the rest is as nice).

Truck's not bad either. All in all, a very nice setup.

I guess it only makes sense that a guy who buys project cars would buy a fixer-upper house.

We've been in our house for almost a year, and I'm sure that at least 50% of our project resources (time, money, favors, etc) have gone into the house... and it still looks like a turd! We're getting somewhere though.

The nice thing about houses is that you usually return a healthy profit for your improvements, yet somehow you almost always end up losing money when it comes time to sell a car.
