Denny, while you can fab up some awesome cooking units, from past indications, bike building may be your finest point . No doubt this is gonna rock. A 71 triumph, wah-hoo!

It's funny, I look at the oil spill under that engine and it makes me all nostalgic for the day's you would take a british bike out for a weekend, then spend every moment you weren't at your job, working on it to get it ready to go out, and ride the next weekend.

Back in those days, if you had to ask why we changed them up, chopped them, bobbed them, or threw apes on them, you wouldn't understand the answer! Wink Laughing Wink
