If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

 On the left are the parts shelves, straight ahead are now another set of shelves with totes and engines. This is a couple years ago. I was looking for a pic of several hundred bikes, an overflow from a museum/collection. I didn't find it.

Nice! I just want a shop I don't have to put away every night. I wonder if I would get more or less done that way...

Since I'm broke (lile broke broke between jobs) I wired my 220v for the old Lincoln today. last night cut up my last pallet so i didnt have to buy more gravel for that part of the building. I've got a counter top and some 2x6 that will become a work bench. The Slums will live up to style by Name. Hard to beat these old AC-225 boxes though.

The very first time I did stick arc welding, it was with the exact same model "tombstone" Lincoln. That was 50 years ago. ;D

Seems like lately every time I get some space cleared out another bike shows up. I am up to seven at the moment but the 81' GS1100 is a quick turnaround and the 83' V45 Sabre is supposed to get picked up this weekend.

Got this one for $1050 and it only has 15k miles on it. On the frame tag it says GS1100X. It is going to be a nice rider when Glen gets it, after thorough safety testing. 8)

AC225 is a hell of a design. virtually unchanged for many years.

i had one of those, swapped it for a GS850G, it was an 1100ET model from memory, first time i saw 250kmh was on that, god bless pre speed camera days on the hume highway

it ended up with a half full fairing and a genuine kevlar CB1100R single seat with flat bars. uncomfortable as hell but awesome fun. swapped it for my first sohc750
It seems I've kicked the Honda habit again...anyone mind if I stick around ?

The bike came with a color matched Vetter Quicksilver that we have to put back on. Amazingly the owners and installation manuals for the fairing came with the bike. They were tucked up in the tail piece.
