Dang, Mike.  Lookin' at those Bikes makes me drool, but I remember the reconstructive surgery very well.  NO THANKS !  I mentioned being a Teamster, and I remember, too often, the Coroner picking up pieces of bikers splattered along the highway !   Back in '66, in my first year of College, some dumb old bitch pullet her old Ford Station Wagon out of a driveway, right in front of me.  Tried to go head first right through her passenger door !  Had the bike repaired, and SOLD IT !  Don't feel safe lessen' I have 18 wheels under me !  Once again, thanks for being my AMIGO !  ( that's IRISH, like me Mum taught me. )

Thanks a ton for the b'day wish, Mike.

I still love that side-car, althogh I never "Learned" to pilot one; We had a three-wheeled bike at fedex to get around the warehouse on, i drove into a wall every time!

Big-Bad biker dude, can't even ride a three-wheeled bicycle, I got so embarrased that I quit trying.

Hey Mike, I love the side car, how does it ride? Had to put the project bike on hold due to my wifes illness, but it will be built. Got to get it ready before John Boyd retires, so we can have a gatherin, you are invited.  We are a coupla yrs older, but its all good.  RC
