    Nice bike, glad you could bring it back from a wreck. What really caught my eye is the art deco or whatever style it is called work bench, storage cabinet and I am guessing tool storage.

    He's old, cranky, and really not much to look at. We're working on the engine, the frame and tins are being done at his shop, he'll possibly be along here to defend himself, goes by perfpup. He's usually always late.

    Heh. I see a friend is running the Cannonball again. In his own words: Being hard of head and limited intelligence, I am again running in the Motorcycle Cannonball.

    Darryl Richman #23 riding his '28 R52. I know the engine has been gone into many times since I took this picture in '08

    Well naturally I couldn't follow your progress without at least checking out the latest Mecum auctions this month in Vegas.I don't have anything near the money to get a veteran bike for myself and then remain married so I'll just sit on the sidelines and wish you guys the best!

    My only contribution could possibly be to ride to Ohio for your planned stop and wish you well should you make it that far.Best of luck and I hope there will be a ride report and pics on your adventure.I will say,when/if you get near Michigan and you get into some shit with the motor and perhaps need a part overnighted and delivered I could PM you my contact info if I can be of service.I do anything to get out of work for a day or so.
