    Well it's parts related so maybe this is OK for the garage?

    Me first - new Buchanan spokes for my rear wheel.

    Bought a mandrel bent cat-back exhaust and an aftermarket enclosed airbox for the wife for Christmas one year. It was for "our" Tundra 5.7. Two weeks later...divorce. Guess who got to keep the truck and the parts...:banghead:

    Nothing for XMas, but for our anniversary

    I bought her a Honda CB750

    This is how it looks now.
    We sold her honda a couple of years ago and she's been riding one of my xs650s. Been restoring it for about 2 years.

    She says it's like the Simpsons Episode when Homer gives Marge a Bowling ball for XMas that says 'Homer". The plan is to girly it up with the final paint job. White or silver with Japanese Cherry Blossoms.

    Goodgolly, that's pretty simple math, Wife+ car parts for Christmas= divorce.
    Now if it was a mink coat, you'd still be married.

    Touche! :thumbsup: In my defense, as soon as I installed the parts she took off to go race her friend's Z71. She was one of those country girl types...:shrug:
