Thumbs up Please allow me to introduce myself...

I'm a man of (little) wealth & (poor) taste...

Hey guys & gals, Boil here...

52 years of age (as of April 2019), have not been on a motorcycle nor bicycle for DECADES...!

But I picked this up the other day for a decent price...





And now I plan to blow it apart & start making it mine...!

I will start a Build Thread here sometime soon, & will drop a link back here for any interested...!

SO EXCITING...!!!
