Trust me, somebody wants that headlight!
Had my Hobart for north of ten years. Works just as well now, as it did when I got it.DesmoDog said:After using oxy/acetylene for the past 20 years or so I finally decided to step up to 1950's tech.
Since then I also added a tank and a cart, so if I ever cleaned my shop enough not to burn it down with random sparks I could actually MIG weld at this point.
One of these days, I'll get me a WKRP. Funny, the Guzzi my buddy has me working on has that tail light and fender. I thought it might be Harley stuff on that thing. I thought it was odd that the license plate light was on top. Now I know why.canyoncarver said:I traded my 86' FXR project and some cash for this ready to roll 93' FXRP today. I got some nice saddle bags with it too. It needs nothing but I have a few changes planned. I love this thing.

To me they are generally overweight and overpriced, but I was brought up on small cheap light bikes, so I'm biased.
This is me too. I boast about being on a 6 year streak of not having spent over $600 to buy a used bike for me to build, so I rarely go over $2k by the end. I look at Shovelheads and other Harley listings all the time, but I don't want to go in @ $4k or more on a used one, let alone make payments on anything new. This is also the reason I don't own a new Africa Twin, which I would love to own. I can't bring myself to go all in at $14k plus. Also, you can buy a bike like a brand new Ninja 650 or CBR600rr for $8 - 10k, which is why so many bikes like that are on the road and ridden by young people.Rat_ranger said:enjoy working on the $100 old japanese craigslist bikes.
