    Motor Rebuilt

    Take a look at this eye candy, the motor has been rebuilt completely from the ground up, very exciting! Josh uses some BMW guru up on San Francisco I believe to do the work. 1000cc upgrade!

    Thanks,
    Shane

    Ever Wonder. . .

    what REAL MAN JEWELRY looks like????

    Look no more. . .

    Only thing, here -- is this going to completely blind oncoming drivers when the sun hits it????? Be ready to swerve!

    I'm not either, but I'll reserve my ideas on it till I see the whole package. It may work great when it's in place with the overall theme.

    There is no questions about my happiness, who would I have to blame but myself, Josh and I are agonizing over every little detail to make sure we get it right, just like I did on the Porsche, I am just one fortunate SOB to be able to pull these 2 projects off, really am. I cannot wait until spring so I can take possession of the bike.

    Thanks for following my friend,
