I can almost imagine the tension of that situation.

We caught a guy red-handed in our shop, hiding in a corner behind one of our 4-wheelers after he sawed off our locks.

My brother went for his gun, and the guy took off before I got there.

An hour later, he was in custody, and spent the next almost-year in jail, and is still on probation. We later got a check from him for the cost of the locks.

Good to hear things worked out for you and he got what was coming to him. Too bad that doesn't all ways work out that way.

Here's a picture of a couple of my "old School" rides stored for the winter in my "old school' truck. 1973 Yamaha RT3 Enduro and 1965 Honda CB160 in a 1955 Chevy Pickup.

Any bike 35 years and older is concidered "antique". As long as it's not in the way, I would suggest to leave it. But that's just my 2 cents worth.

Not nessasaraly. If you look at the bottom of my postings you'll see I do have a few others. The 20' and 27' scout (and a Goulding side car) are also part of my responsabilities. Ya, I love my job!!

Here is my 850 Commando taken several years ago. She's now got a rebuild engine, carbs, suspension, brakes, oil lines plus a repaired/repainted roadster tank. Next on the list are clubman rearsets and a single MKII Amal.

Get it running and ride the piss out of it. If you've never ridden a Kawi 2 stroke tripple, you have no idea what terror really means: scary fast, questionable handling/brakes/suspension-mucho fun

If it has been sitting that long, pay close attention for excessive smoke coming from one cylinder (I can't remember if the the right end or left end)

Once upon a time my 72 H2 sucked in the seal on the wet end of the crankshaft while I was about 30 - 40 miles from home. The cylinder at that end of the crank sucked enough oil out of the gearbox to lower the lever below the upper shift fork and gall the fork producing a horrible squeal in anything but 2nd gear. Guess what gear I rode from Sparta, GA back to Milledgeville in?

Repair was straightforward with the only special tool needed being the alternator rotor puller. ( A bolt can be turned down if you can find the dimensions needed)

Great bikes, but they earned the name Widowmaker. I miss mine sometimes.
