The red 'CH is actually a client bike. I wish that I had taken some photos from in the shop, Lloyd spent the last week cleaning out the shop for the event because we didn't know what the turnout would be. He has a lot of inventory and the shop still had a lot going on. To get his black bike out, the red 'CH had to move. With both bikes outside, the shop was still a bit tight if people wandered through.

Great looking bikes there. I used to ride around in those parts years ago.

Well done, Scott!

Two of my favorite bikes in one place -- flatties AND sporties. And Canadian beer on top of all that. So much jealousy.

ooops, I got it wrong then. I'm bad, I thought it was a "house" bike. I'll correct my earlier post. Thx for correcting me Scott.

Thx Bruce.

FWIW, it is the same ride I've posted pics of before, over in the "post a pic of your AMF sporty" thread --> http://xlforum.net/forums/showpost.p...&postcount=743
