Default Project # 1

I had posted about this project shortly after joining the site...





I've been doing alot of thinking about it the last few months and seeing how I had a fellow drive 6hrs one way just before Christmas to get the frame I had repaired, sandblasted and painted




and the fact that if I want a tougher project I've still got project # 2






I haven't really thought too hard on the direction for project # 3 bought late last fall





and now to top things off my neighbor tells me at my birthday party last night that he's brought up a Caballero from Califorinia....do I really need another one? Hmm rust free...anyway back to Project #1 pictured below in it's current state..







come spring I'll be stripping whatever's left on it and sending it to Elky heaven..

Will offer advise if you want, but don't expect any sympathy. I struggle to afford ONE elkie, and you've got a fleet of them.

Pretty much Johnnie...but I'd like to lose the graphics and the fact that they were done in the late 90s means that I'm probably going to have to repaint it. It also has it's little issues..nothing I can't handle of course.

I hear you man...not trying to be a bragert or anything like that but I was always to trying to find one that was better than the previous one as we have to contend with serious rust issues up here...they were however all very, very affordable. They were all tucked away...you very seldom see one on the road around here. I think that's why I took an interest in them.

Kevin,
After you strip all you want off #1, haul it to my place and I'll buy you a beer!
Save you a trip to the scrap yard.
Doug
