    I stated in my post from inside Seaba Station that all the bikes were rideable except 2. The first one that doesn’t run is the Pope board track racer. It is missing at least the primary chain and the rear cylinder exhaust header. I’ll bet it’s missing more parts needed to run.

    The second one is the Moto-ped which they had purchased shortly before my visit.

    I asked one of the owners about which bikes ran because of the Triumph with the plate full of oil underneath it. I figured there was no reason for the bike to be leaking oil if it was only a display. He was proud of the fact that only 2 didn’t run.

    The Sidewalk Highway AKA The Ribbon Highway north of Afton, Ok. It was only paved 9 feet wide down the middle of the road. Money was tight in Oklahoma so they decided they could pave twice as far if they only paved one lane. :imaposer[​IMG]

    It was restored as a "haunted bordello," but there was evidence that the building was never a bordello. As of last year it was an antique store.

    Oatman stubborn donkey. Just stood there blocking me, refusing to move. I tried the horn, hi beams, even nudging him a bit. Would not budge. I thought I would never make it to Santa Monica...

    You should have given him a carrot. That's the only thing that gets them to move.
