Thanks everyone for the nice welcome. I did fix the Mega image rez problem on my original post. I forgot about downsizing.

Anyways - I am presently from Massachusetts. I say presently because I am in the middle of moving to New Jersey. Yeah...I know I know. Everyone is moving OUT of NJ. Well...I'm a sucker for a good time!

This is my 2nd bike I have owned. Previously - twas a '61 panhead. Had that many years ago. I mean. MANY. Now i"m older and more refined (yes I AM)...LOL....and I came across this POS '79 and it was crying my name. Bought it off ebay - sight unseen other than the posted pics. Most people would have ran the other way....but me? Dumbass. I bought it. went through it. And VOILA. Love this thing.

Looking forward to following threads and meeting new folks. Peace to all.

Ric aka Kokopeli

If yes, why then, welcome to the asylum.

If no, please return to the internet and look up Otter Farming.

Thank you sir from NZ! I appreciate the kind words... there is nothing quite like bike building and then riding what you build. making it your own....

Thanks again...see you around I hope! Going to poke around more on the site.

Peace!
