    Photoshop! No clearance on front guard, no place for magneto, obvious retouching on front two exhaust pipes. The H.T. leads also arise from nowhere. As my little old Welsh auntie used to say, "sucked in like a hare lip."

    Even tho I haven't read the whole thread, I thought I'd show some of my rescues through the years.

    Got this out of a barn, covered in chicken poop.
    It turned out like this.
    64 BONNEVILLE.jpg

    This followed my home from behind a garage.

    Sold it on in the same condition to a friend who did a great job on it.

    I brought this 49 Norton Big 4 back from Kent, England, to Kent, Ohio.

    I was an MSF Instructor. It dazzled the students.

    Then I got this T100.

    The paint scheme was a nod to my 74 Commando. I can't find a picture of that one, yet.
    Gotta have a newer bike, sometimes.

    I've got another T100 coming home soon. I had a 65 Bonneville, but it's only on film, until I get some scanning done.

    Looks like I deleted a post. Here's my 64 Bonneville before, and after.

    Then the 250 that didn't hang about long.

    A friend wanted it more than I did. He skimmed the chrome off my Commando rotor, and drilled it for me. Seemed like a good trade.
    I need to dig out some old photos, and scan them. I can't find my 74 Commando, or my 65 Bonneville.

    That's the one! Thanks Dave. I brought the new Daytona home tonight. It's nicer than I thought. Pictures to follow.

    Well, I found the Commando, but apparently Goatroper has the only decent picture of the 65.
    And look at the handsome devil beside it!
