    1986 Honda Rebel... the wifes bike.

    It's actually a DS7... or rather, started out that way. The build thread is here... https://www.dotheton.com/index.php?threads/1972-yamaha-ds7.14897/

    1986 Honda Rebel... the wifes bike.

    Said Goodbye to the little Rebel yesterday. Wife decided she'd rather ride pillion than solo. Got $1300 for it, which was a couple of hundred more than I had into it :P

    Doc, located in New Orleans, LA. Price, not sure... $500 sound reasonable?

    1987 GSXR750 **SOLD**

    Been sitting in the corner of the shop for several years, and had been sitting in the PO's garage/yard for several years before that. Bike seems to be all there. I got it to run on starter fluid back when I first got it, but haven't tried since. Make no mistakes, it needs a ton of TLC. I have...

    1978 CB750K

    I think it's time to let my CB750 go. She doesn't get ridden very much lately, as it's just easier to jump on the Bandit. Figured I'd give here a shot at her before I put her on FBMP. Build thread is here... https://www.dotheton.com/index.php?threads/1978-cb750.31552/ The vast majority of the...

    Nice get! Do yourself a huge favor and replace those dime store carabiners with a proper set of hooks. It'd be a shame if you lost a bike because it jumped off the hitch. It'd be a tragedy if it also ended up in oncoming traffic and took somebody out as well.

    2002 Jeep TJ "Baa Baa"

    Finally got the jack mounted. Couldn't find a reasonably priced "off the shelf" product to mount it to the tire carrier. So I picked up a cheap ebay find for a JK and modded it to fit where I wanted. Handle isolator and bolt/wingnut for the top clamp will be in by the end of the week.

    Adjustable Angled Clip-Ons - Amazon.com

    I meant, not just on the bolts, but on the smooth surface of the pivot as well.

    Adjustable Angled Clip-Ons - Amazon.com

    Had the same experience as ridesolo. I have the same ones on my DS7... picked them up from eBay. I ended up smearing some red loctite on the pivot where the bar mounts to the fork mount, before final tightening. Just to make sure it wouldn't slip while riding. I don't know if that helped much or...

    2002 Jeep TJ "Baa Baa"

    Did a 'Grill Forward' refurb. Pulled the bumper, steering box plate, winch plate, and bushing caps. Cleaned/scuffed/painted them. Replaced the swaybar bushings and all the mismatched/missing bolts. Changed the main mounting bolts to buttonhead allens to match the existing bolts on the bumper...

    2002 Jeep TJ "Baa Baa"

    Underhood mostly cleaned up. PO had a radiator explode, and everything under the hood was covered in rustwater residue.
