    Taking a cue from my buddy RTWDoug(no I don't have his flair for words)... I've decided to post some pics and links to some bikes I have now and some I've owned and sold....thats what i do to make a so called living....anyway, here are links to a couple of my latest projects...

    1962 Honda 305 Dream..actually runs good...looking forward to fixin it up as I've been looking for a earlier version for a while...

    1968 Kawasaki W1 650....rare bikes, again something I've wanted for a while...should make a interesting bike....

    http://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m245/eldomike/Kawasaki%20%20W1%20650/

    Here is a link to some of the bikes I've had/sold in the last year.....

    The plan is to post here when I pick up something I think may be of interest to the inmates...

    ah my young apprentice...
    you have a long way to go before you hit old bike jedi status.

    I saw that new show on the history channel last nite, American Pickers.

    Rank amateures. they never even filled the van all the way! and no trailer!

    So Mike,

    You don't say where you're from.

    No sense tempting us with those old crocks if we don't know where to come and snag one.

    I aint into those old Moto Gs but a Trident a Duc or an Airhead...
