I couldn't find the original date. Thanks!

A kit car that can be bought from various stages of build, turn key runs about 40k. Based on Late 50s Lotus 11.

I had look again to notice the glasses. My attention was drawn to what resembles a chubby penis on his face.

Blood and Blue: Motorcycles, music and mayhem along the Mississippi

By Tonya L. Thompson

Day Three to the Dragon and Hwy. 129: The Harley’s Lost Appeal



excerpt


"...

And it was here, of all places, that the Harley lost its appeal to me. I’m not sure if it was the overpriced Harley store and the combination of sticker/tattoo/shirt messages I read there, or the fact that every bike off the road was a Harley. After seeing Any Given Sunday, and what can be accomplished when rider and bike are sufficient to handle each other and the terrain, the overpriced, overblown, overweight Harley begged the question: why?
It was then I realized I was meant to be on a café racer, with an electric starter, high pipes, a lightweight frame, and enough horsepower to get me where I want to go without waking up the neighborhood to do it. We’ve found the Mississippi corn field version of the Dragon’s tail, and as soon as my rebuild with Thompson Customs and Racing is finished, you’ll find me there. ......"

Interesting perspectives in the blog

Naw, they would tear away real quick so the human hide could manage the slide.

She does comment about learning about the appropriateness of gear. I will drop her a note to tell her I posted her stuff here.
