I worked at the Three Guys Marine & Motor Sales Company in Columbus, Indiana the summers of 1968 and 1969; I was 17. 3 Guys sold Glaspar and Steury boats, Mercury outboards and Honda and BSA motorcycles. Besides installing trailer hitches, and sweeping the parking lot, it was my job to uncrate the bikes and set them up.
It was like working in a Candy Shop.. ...
The biggest bike Honda built at the time was the CB450... [I]aka[/I], [B]The Black Bomber[/B] (try to buy one of these today...)
Not sure why you had problems with the upload. Your picture is quite small...the forum software lets you have a picture up to 156Kb big (yours is 36Kb) and 800 lines wide (yours is 600) and 1000 lines high (yours is 500). One thing that would help is the quality of the picture. The software that I use (Irfanview) let's me control the lines and the quality independently. So you could select that you want an 800x600 picture and then keep working with the quality so that the final size is in the neighborhood of 150-160Kb. The picture would have been better all the way around.
I did some experimenting with uploads and it will take a wide range of pictures...here's my experiment:
I really don't find there to be any real issues with the picture upload capability. :dunno
Photobucket.com.... is what you need (or something similar).
898... what a great project! It turned out perfectly.
I'll walk you through the image posting protocol if you like. [B]Much[/B] easier than what you just fabricated.

I think we got used to that "feature"! Actually, I think that might have been something of a bug which was not corrected with the forum upgrade to the latest vBulletin. Lew or I can help out...as he suggested, it easy and you won't even have finished that first beer and you'll be an expert at sizing pictures!!
Hats off to you sir for tackling the sheet metal....lots of thinking ahead when working with the stuff. Looks great. 898, that sounds like one of the old Mohawk (OV-1) tail numbers....any way great job sir!

OV/1 - gorgeousmous aircraft, in it's own Grumman-dy way. It always reminded me of a salvaged UH-1 with wings, flying in close formation with a Connie. [img]http://mail.yimg.com/a/i/mesg/tsmileys2/09.gif[/img]
[B]FOR THE RECORD '98[/B]... I love that tank and especially the rear view ... the weld seams and rivet are great. If you could make another one, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I'd have to put a second on the ranch, but it'd be worth every Pfennig.
Also for the record ... I didn't take those shots, I grabbed them off the net. AND, I [B]should[/B] have grabbed the builder's name. I'll see if I can conjure up the website again.

"Steam Paul" is all there was. Too bad, a really creative guy. BTW, there's some other nice iron on that website, check it out.

Nice pics, still trying to identify what the parts are, I think its a 750cc or greater, aaa lets see who can identify year and mods :D. The Ov-1 grows on ya eventually, but they're not in service anymore, out since 96', still a few in Argentina though....ugly but tough.
Your avatar's pretty small Glen ... but I do believe I see a Mohawk lurking over your shoulder(s).
