Lol right. Not sure which is the worst one, the bikes, the Opel, the styleline, or the AE86. Not counting the restaurant equipment that’s professional investment right? Lol.

My 71 XLCH (original owner) came from the dealer with what was called in Harley's accessory catalog a low profile seat. I replaced the seat with a LePera cobra seat, both not very comfortable. I have both seats,the catalog and the bike.

I have two GTs (hoping to pick up another soon) and a manta (hope to get another one of them too)

Looks sweet Len. Still rocking the cobra regularly?
