  • Before.....and after.

    My bike. You all saw what it looked like at Paintsville, but this was it when I bought it.

    Bought from Liberty HD, off EBay, for $6200. What you can't see is the corrosion all over the engine, and the rust
    in every fastener, from sitting outside, ungaraged, it's entire life. The red paints is also a repaint job, with pealing clear coat at the tank strap from a leaking gas cap.







    Now....

        You did that bike good
        It's not "derailed", as long as the last post relates to the post above it...it's just on a different rail, heading into a more interesting direction

          Not sure I can do zidermans broom joke justice but think it goes something like, I have had the same broom for 10 years, I have only changed the handle 6 times and the brushes 4 times. Something like that.

                      Lucy-G stands for Lucy Goose. She was my German Shepherd/Lab dog that had to be put down at 8.5 years old, 3 months after my daughter was born.

                          I really got a kick out of that. It kinda went like this.....Rain, Stop Raining, Dixie wipe bikes down, Start Raining Again, Stop Raining, Dixie wipe bikes down (repeat over and over). My bikes never been that clean and probably won't be again for a long time......
