I just checked the weather, it's going to be 56 tomorrow vs 70 on Sunday. Does it matter to anyone if we bump the ride until then?

I don't remember having anything else to do Sunday, so I should be okay. I'll have to check when I get home to see if I'm forgetting something.

Guy, The bike looks good (from pictures) a quick scan of early 70's Nortons showed prices from 4-9K. You've got the room in the garage AND the skills to fix any issues! Go get it!

I think I'd buy a bike from Rusty unseen, but not this week. Still need stuff for the garage. Moving upstairs once the bottom is done. Need to start thinking about an area for the training classes.

You can't outrun a speeding train
This happened this morning about 6 miles from my house as the crow flies. We can hear the train when it blasts its horn.

H14xl,

Yea I was building them for awhile, life got in the way and I had to stop. I have a one or two left over if you want one. PM me your address and I will send you one.

Andrew,
I had a roll chart holder waiting for me at home this evening, I can't believe it got here that quick. This thing is one beautiful piece of work. I can't thank you enough, anytime you plan on riding out this way and need to drop a vehicle my place is always available. And a six pack of Star Hill awaits you at the next get together.

Thanks to Pplasm as well your offer was greatly appreciated.

Daggone this place is full of good people.

Yeah, Rusty mentioned that to me too. If it don't go to PA, me thinks there will be a local scramble.
