    "Restored" what does that mean to you

    Thanks Jim, I was shooting for a showroom new look, but I was probably guilty of over polishing, parts that would’ve had a more brushed finish when it left the factory. But….I was building it for me and what I liked. Thanks Phil, it’s funny how different our perspectives are. I have always...

    "Restored" what does that mean to you

    2023 XS650 Calendar - Nominations

    I’d like to nominate Bumblebees super clean ‘82 Special street tracker. 😉 In his own words, “I've owned this bike for 20+ years. It never ran right and spent a lot of time parked in the garage while I rode a parade of other bikes. The stars finally aligned last summer and I have been able to...

    Cb750k0 - any interest?

    I have no doubt it will be, it was designed to be exceptional and revolutionary, and Honda succeeded!

    That was close!

    Oh man! I feel your pain, I’m happy to hear you didn’t get hit. There’s nothing more upsetting than having a near miss because someone is either careless or reckless! :cussing:

    Thanks Pete. Btw , love that aerial photo of the property, it gives a great perspective. How cool is it to have a winery and pizza kitchen within walking distance! 😃

    Real Estate Update

    Pete, the building is looking great, what a space to hang out in! 😃 I find the whole construction process fascinating , as it is done so differently than anything I’ve ever seen done here. Out here , our soil is so hard and dry and rocky, every building from backyard sheds to mansions, begin...

    Interesting motorcycles, not XS650

    It’s funny just how fickle we are isn’t it? We get something we really want…..and then we get bored with it. 😄 I can’t tell you how many bikes I have regretted selling, and yet I’m always looking, wanting a new experience.
