Default Hey Ironheads...Newby from Ontario

Hello Ironheads,

I'm new to this form. I ride a '61 'CH. i've ridden it for better than 20yrs...across many miles. I wrench my own and others (shovels mostly). I have rebuilt mine twice in the 20yrs I've owned it and pull it apart yearly for cleaning and maintenance as it needs it.

I live in rural Ontario...snowed in for now...but, spring is on the way though!!

I recognize many faces here. Mick: it was you link that I followed
Pinion: nice to see you too...

Glad you are here. Don't tell anyone, but we Canucks are planning on taking over. So far almost all provinces are on the committee.
