    great build!
    shit luck with all the bad repairs in the past, but looks like you are getting them all figured out!

    My apt. had a shack like that on an alley that backed up to main drag, man the people trash picking and shit that would happen that place at night. A meth lab (toilet) one house down got busted, the cops would drive by and I thought they were scoping me so I'd wave hello at 2am like forrest gump they'd just keep driving.

    It was kind of like shopping but the goods would come to you--bought a few tools and file cabinets from pickers going by. My trash picking buddy got stuck out back on an icy day and forgot where he was from diabetic shock, so he called jimmy john's they delivered right to where he was stuck.

    Cool dude he would always have 2 cents or split a beer. his pan was long gone and he rode Indians before that....hang around outlaws, had a interstate conspiracy charge--prison paid for his quadruple bypass. good people:
    Richard "Dick" Weed:


    My favorite story was the first time he met my wife--he'd harangue about his old "huge big ole beautiful tits" girlfriend after thoroughly taking in my wife's---the first time he met her in the grocery store. The ol dirty bastard ranted how they were right at eye level and all the floppy sloppy motorboating and dirty shit right there in the middle of aisle; I looked over she's smiling. He looked back at me and catches himself--ohh oh sorry----"boobs."
    Like that was the only thing wrong with the entire conversation, he swore. 'tits.'

    Killer killer killer bike, man! I'd love it more with some wacky paint on the tank. Love your Ironhead too, how's she doing?
