morn n, hope everyone is good.
under the 100 days to the start now. I sure wanted to be allot further along with having a running and tested bike by now. am slowly pecking away at the list but really need to put my nose to it, getting things done and get after our bodies for the task at hand. lots of little things small but needed parts or fasteners, tabs, brackets. chain cut and sized. got mounting tabs and brackets on the after mart chain guard. finished the exhaust system. prob. should have taken the time to make male and female dimpling dies for the exhaust but this seemed a lot quicker.
cuz Ray making good headway with the sidecar floor and inner frame work. little story here about the wood being used for the car. many years ago these pcs. were removed and saved from a hundred year old place owned by a grandmother of another cuz (Judy) being tore down in Kentucky. so wood with history. I love it.. Ray is very handy in ALL media creating, but I think blacksmithing is his favorite.
loaded the JD and Chief at midnight sat. to head for Golden Colo. Sunday morn for a classic and antique bike showing. did a bit of Cannonball and Sponsor promoting. seems like a lot of interest in the Cannonball. lots of great old bikes and folks of every short. Karen and Phil, Teresa and Ron, and quite a few other folks I ve come to know over the last 3-4 years of being involved with old bikes. pretty great.. and Eric, sure was a lot of interest in your painting on the Chief, gave your number to quite a few folks. like you don’t have any work to do..
got home Sunday and we mowed to dark. ready for another week. hope your week is great. LAUGH LOTS. gary
