Default Sportsters not my only vise!

Someone gave me this old Craftsman bench vise last week. Already have a bench vise, but who can resist another? I was going to restore it to the original red, but decided to do a "resto mod" with HD black and orange. I think it came out nice.

Sweet, John, multitalented you are sir! I inherited a unique vise from my Dad, the front jaw was stationary while the rear moved in or out. My B.I.L. dropped it and went into several pieces. No brazing skills here so it’s gone now.
