Hello everyone! A few of you may recognize me from the HAMB, been there a long time. If not, here is some info. about me!

I'm 29 years young, have been into old cars my whole life. All sorts, going through phases like a lot of us do as we get older (and wiser!), tastes change and what-not. Anyway, I also have quite a penchant for old motorcycles, mostly pre-war those are my favorite. I just sold a 1934 BSA which is actually on this board right now, and I had NO idea I sold it to a HAMB member! Crazy... anyway, I sold that bike to purchase a car I sold unwillingly 7 years ago. I had the bike shipped from jolly old England.

I got the car back (I dont think anyone would be interested in it here) but now I am itching for another pre-war masterpiece.

I love cafe style bike as well, and quite honestly I think it would be really bitchin' to cafe a 60's harley.. call me crazy...

Anyway, I hope to be here more often and learn and chat with all of you guy and gals. I'm sure there are a lot of HAMBER's here I recognize a lot of your names.

Oh by the way the only running bike I have right now is a Moto Guzzi, also a new cafe style motorcycle (2003) I also have a cafe'd Honda 350 Four, which is almost done. SO CLOSE! That thing will be a riot to ride, I'm sure of it.

tinyE has left the building!! :)

Glad to see you over here.

Yeah I love pre-war bikes way big too. Probably some of my favorites. Hopefully have one soon. A friend and I were talking about maybe taking and making an old style motodrome rider just like they did in the teens. Just for the hey-hoo.

OK.. here are a couple of pics. This is pre-seat install, bobbed fender, new tires/wheels, drum brakes all around (can you say death wish?) but you get the general idear...

I also threw in a "before" pic, when I was just making sure the engine ran OK.

I'd love to have a cafe'd Goose. They have such a sweet/tough profile and unique speed delivery.

Holy SH*T dude that's awesome.. That hand is so Happy Gilmore, did he swipe that from Carl Weathers? :)
HAH! Good one! I don't know where he got that shrunken abomination, I just stumbled on that post last week. Damn, that looks like it was a fun night, as Big Ric was mixin and scratchin on the wheels of steel.
