Yup. Really nice ride!

Nice Astro too.

Looking at the photos of your shop and the old stickers, I would guess that you must be an old fart like me.
Been a fan of your work for years.

Were any of you guys at the Sacramento mile about 12 years ago when Jay Springsteen was riding the piss out of Abrams' TZ750 for a couple of exposition laps? He was wheeling that thing like a mofo on the front straight and spinning it up all the way down the back. I have seen that bike being ridden numerous times but it sounded the best that night IMO. I might be getting my tracks mixed up but I think it was Sacramento?

Of course, I missed the show at Indy. Both times!

It's a stock Astro seat that's been re-covered with ostrich skin and some reverse leather down the middle to look kind of like a Metralla.

Zilla!

Thanks! Yeah I'm getting up there in age. I still refuse to grow up and stop playing with motorcycles though

They are some nice pix of Astro's. Then again, I don't think there could be a bad pic of an Astro.
