      So you want to hear about the Camaro and bicycles? I’ve had that car for 30 years, I’ve had 67, 2-69s and a 73. They’re getting hard to find so I decided to keep this one. I’m a painter by trade so I did most of the work myself. Has a 350/700R4, AC, Painless Wiring upgrade, Global West tubular suspension, Ridetech steering upgrade (so it turns normal now) Coilover suspension, and I just installed Holley Sniper EFI. Built it to be a dependable daily driver and at 20 mpg I’m happy with it. I could go on and on with the work I’ve done on this car but I’d probably develop arthritis typing it up. I will add this; you’re never finished!

      The bycycles are a collection of a GT 18 speed Mountain bike that has more street like tires, great improvement! An 80s Bianchi 18 speed Road Bike, Nashiki 18 speed mountain bike with street-able tires, a Gary Fischer and the wife’s all around city bike that’s actually pretty nice to ride. We do ride them but not as much as we’d like.

      I also have a Suzuki DL1000 and DR650SE that I did a bunch of work to make them perform and as with all of my vehicles, I want to be able to jump in or on any of them and be able to drive them across the country with no issues.

        Elwaupo, that's great stuff!

        If you want to, there's spots on this forum to wax poetic on your Camaro build(s), your fear of keyboard arthritis notwithstanding. We love to see stuff like this, especially in these times. It need not be Harley related. Similarly, you can post up stuff on your Suzie-Q's. We'd eat that stuff up.

        Hell! I get a new oil filter for my Superglide, I start a thread on it. And, I'll bet there are 14 bicycle threads I've started here with blather about my antique Paramount.



        Again, welcome!

          Welcome from Long Island, NY!

          Nice upgraded Street Bob and Camaro! I like to upgrade things too if I get the chance. I have a 2017 Road Glide Special that I turned into my ideal version of an RG Ultra installing only the features I liked from the Ultra and leaving out the ones I didn't want.

              I've loved riding my bicycles all my life, up until nerve damage had done my foot in back around 2007. I type that and think how long ago that was. Some years I put more peddling miles on my butt than scooter miles. I've acquired many bikes over the years, most are sold off now. Currently in the stable is a 1972 Schwinn Paramount P-15 road touring bike, a 1989 Specialized Stumpjumper FS, a 1984 DeRosa Pro with a full new old stock Campy Super Record group PAT 84, a 1995 Spectrum Ti Road, Merlin built, finished by Tom Kellogg, and a 1997 Eddy Merckx MXL Leader. All bike are Campy equipped. I had a Bianchi Specialissima at one point, sorry I let that one go, it was a bit small for me. But what a looker in that Celeste green paint.

                I too love riding my bicycles, until the prostate swelled up and everything forwards of that went numb, sort of had to give it up then. The Yellowstone hill. right across the river from My house was not a problem at all, pedal to the top of that and not have to get into deep breathing to get there. It is a long and steep hill too.
                I still have My bicycles, an old Raleigh mountain bike, a Jeep Wrangler, a very old Hawthorn that reminds Me of steam powered locomotive days and a bunch of other old assorted 50s and early sixties units. I loveum all.
