It's been awhile since I updated my info. For those who've been here for some time you know most of my story. For new CruiserCustomizing Community members - here you go..
My rides have included a twice restored 1983 VT750C Shadow basket case. Actually one of two '83 basketcases. Have two - used parts of the worst to restore the other. Nicknamed is "Lil' Tam" after my wife. Sold it about a year and half ago.
The second is a 2002 Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe dressed in Black (The VT750CDA Variant). Got this from an insurance settlement when "Lil Tam' and myself got caught in a "Right-of-Way" violation by a "CAGER" Lil' Tam took a beating and so did I - but -not as much as Lil' Tam. Got enough to pay the Doc., Rebuild Lil' Tam and get the ACE.
My next ride - which at the time of this writting - is being rebuilt - is a 1979 Harley Davidson XLCH Ironhead Sportster. Pics will come...
Served in the USAF. Other than for Basic at San Antonio and Tech at Lowry at Denver; the rest of my time in service was spent overseas - Kunsan AB, Korea and Clark AB, PI. Both places were still flying F4 Phantoms when I was in.
Worked as a mechanic at Dad's shop until he died, then went to work again as a mechanic for my brother up in Kansas. Then got a job as a material handler aka fork lift driver and so on and so on: Jack of All Trade - Master of Some...
My ride preferences are - of course - Harley's and Honda Shadows.
Ride Hard, Safe and Free!
It's all about the Journey.
