    When I go to Car or Motorcycle shows , lots of thoughts go through my mind , history, style, culture, etc. and finally thoughts of me driving
    each and everyone one of them. And I start smiling.....

    ***************
    Mine is a 1974 TX650A which is becoming one with my sidecar soon.

    Scripto, just my opinion I would rather spend time looking at your sidecar outfit than all those rich boy toys!

    By the way what kind of sidecar are you going to be mounting to it?

    Harummph! Do you think any of them assembled any of those cars from bins and boxes of parts? You can do anything you want when you have too much money (there actually is such a thing). And when you have that much money, you can pay somebody else to turn the wrenches. Anybody wanna see a real car show? Come to the Syracuse Nationals, at the New York State Fair Grounds, in Syracuse, NY (the name kinda says it all). Last year, there were over 8,000 cars! You'll see a lot of cars there that were nut-and-bolt restorations, done in someone's garage, over the course of a real long time (kinda like Mailman's '72!). Sweat. Blood. Sleepless nights. Passion. Love. THAT's a car show!

    I could not agree more with doing your own work vs utilizing your resources to have someone else do all the work. A full meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being perfect. I think it is more about being real, being humble and being able to share thoughts and interests and to hopefully ( I guess ) touch the lives of others on this board.

    I have included a couple pics of my side car project. Only a couple because I am so intimidated by many of you with your incredible skills.I don't want to post my build thread until I know "IT" works.
