    When you are behind the handlebars who cares unless of course you're a profiler. :lol3

    I spent 100,000+ miles of smiles behind the bars of one back in the 80s. It might not be just you but I don't think it's ugly. :D

    It doesn't do much for me either.
    BUT, I bought it because I can make money off of it. If I only bought bikes that I liked, I'd never sell any of them.
    Obviously I've bought WAY too many bikes that I liked......

    Do you have a store front or a web site for the stuff that you have, for sale?

    His stuff can be seen at various places in the mid-central USA, and I'm betting at several locations in Europe......as well the southeastern USA.
    By appointment only..............

    My problem was I only bought things I liked. Then went through withdrawals selling.

    And I sometimes like me some weird shit, so I have to wait for someone else who likes weird shit. :lol3

    Both the Colorado and Arkansas retail locations will be open to the public soon.
    At least I hope to open the Arkansas location soon. The landlord is kind of a dick.

    Fun time at denton amca meet, got rid of some junk, bought some other junk.
    I took a full load with me. Testing out the new transit's load capacity.
    Only picked up one bike, a yammaha 360. For whatever reason, these are becoming kinda sought after. A little time and money invested, and it should make some money.
    Altho I do kinda like them....

    That was my 1st time seeing mirror covers as well.

    My Fishbait book came in today, he even has a picture of the 47 dodge in it.

    If that TT ever needs a home, it'd look pretty good next to another 77 at my house...or the 80...
