    :rofl, Agreed. She was a little dirty by the time I got home but that was short lived as I put the boss to work cleaning her up nice while I reflected on a great day :freaky

    A couple of pics of both long departed sidecar and GSD girl, Beth; she loved the chair.

    Why not get the style brake lever they use to have on the Honda 110 ATC's, where you pull the lever in and flip a spring loaded bail to keep it in place. When you want to move you just pull in the lever and the spring loaded bail releases the catch on the lever?

    I know it's an old post, but you gotta give respect to grandfathers, especially ones so talented!

    I need to get to brushing up my welding skills, you're the type of grandfather I want to be, and I'm getting to that age!:rofl

    Some times I think growing old sucks, then I see something like that, and I'm reminded that the best is yet to come!!:D

    That's one lucky kid!

    Gentlemen,
    I have been looking for an image for years now. I was at one of the final AHRMA events in Steamboat Springs, CO, USA in the mid 1990's. Had a great time with a couple of friends. While looking through the vendor displays and collections I found an image of a rather grizzled looking gentleman on an outfit loaded with firewood. I'm not sure of the make (I think possibly Norton). I have searched many different venues for this item and have come up empty. So, while enjoying this forum the lightbulb lit and I realized no one would have more exposure or experience in this matter than the collective awareness here. Can anyone help me out? I would appreciate any leads or help of any kind. Thank you all.
