I had loaded the wretched thing (it was bad!) into the back of my truck just as the scrap man drove up. When I had talked to my buddy about the bike a couple of days before, I had asked him if there was enough there to get started on the project. He replied "Hell no. Everything in that pile (where the Reflex had been discarded) is nothing but outright junk, ha ha!" The name stuck. I used the engine and wheels off of that donor for OJ.
And let's not forget that OJ is now a state championship winning pile of crap!!
