    Wow. My grandpa had a red 190sl from that era, not sure what year but I do remember it. Neither my dad nor my aunt would remember the year, and gramps is gone. Yeah I new you did old M-B’s from previous posts. I STILL (I know you’re not a fan of 107 chassis cars) miss my old 79 450 SL roadster, silver with red interior. I had both tops, it was a nice car. Oh well...

    Not getting any traction on selling my bike, so I’m going to raffle it off.

    59 tickets, $100/ticket.

    Pm me for details.

    hmmm... you saved me money on my truck parts and now you’re trying to redirect the savings. Plus I’d have to venture into California if I won... that’s a scary thought...

    what the hell, I’ll shoot you a PM.

    59-1 not bad odds. What happens if you don't sell 59 numbers? When and how will the drawing take place?

    sell 59 spots, then the following Saturday will use the U.K. bonus ball lottery to decide the number. That way there’s no chance of “fixing” it.

    if I don’t sell 59 spots, I’ll refund everyone.

    when all the tickets sell, I’ll use the following Saturday’s UK lotto bonus ball drawing to determine the winner.

    @sealsam

    yeah I had it out yesterday to vintage bike in Huntington Beach.

    Of course it poured fucking rain all over me/the bike on the way home. I was soaked!

    Tires.....
    From your first page I lucked out to find the tires you listed without going thru the complete build...again, not that that was a bad thing.:D

    Did you really use these tires.
    -Mitas E-07 tires in 130/80-18 rear and 100/90-19 front
    How do they feel on the street?
    Got an odd ball use for those size tires.
    Been gifted a 2000 Honda XR650R and a new 19 front rim came with it with a new disk.
    Been on the fence with tire selection.
    Got a 300 2 smoker for down and dirty riding.
    This might be my gravel road ripper.
    Note: The XRR has a 21 on it now, borrowed from my other XRR.

    Cheers !

    Tires are rock steady on the street. Fine at speed, smooth, no vibes.
