    Congrats !

    You know, I tore the front porch off the house, removed and replaced the material underneath the downstairs deck, and turned the insides of this house upside down. Twice.

    Never caught a glimpse of that key again.

    Saw your bike on CL this morning. Nicely done. :thumb

    Thanks-I ended up taking the lock off the triple clamp and taking the whole works to a local locksmith. Drilling out those bolts was entertaining!

    The moral of the story-keep those keys where you can find them. :wink:

    Spare keys are better. No waiting, grab it & go.

    I know the old car years very well. Thought yours was an older one.

    A snort of white on the front bumper and mirror. Maybe a set of baby moons.

    That looks like it's survived pretty well. Seen it yet?

    Someone would have to be nuts to buy an old van like that. :hide
    Another damn project.
    Emm, not all of ‘em.

    No snorting of anything white will be done!
    It will get an aluminum grille & the stainless version of those “West Coast” mirrors that are on it now. Also these very same wheels that are on this white (yuk!) one. Don’t think I can get that plate though. :D

    [​IMG]

    The white one was gonna look like this....

    [​IMG]

    Best I have seen of it are the pix that Solarmouse sent. I think the bod is a lot better than the white (yuk!) one.

    You may now kiss the Van! :lol3

    Thought that I would resurrect this thread and add a few more "vintage" photos from the archives. The following photographs were taken in old school fashion with camera film. Photos cronicle some of my early off-road bikes, sport touring sortes in Colorado, and dirt bikes I took with me to the field while working. Yes.....I actually did get some work done and have included some of my log book entry sheets to prove it.:deal Many times I had my trusty "Kesha" by my side.....she was a great little dog and constant companion in the field.

    Those are some bad ass pads. Still have those? You look like an 80's super hero!

    Don't know what ever happened to those Scott......funny how we loose track of stuff. I can tell you that I was calling for my pit crew to get the pliers to remove some cactus from an area below the chest protector! I went for a little "off course " excursion by accident and got nailed in the stomach by a sharp thorn branch...hurt like hell.:lol3:lol3
