    Looking for a Winter Project??

    Happened to see this fine machine sitting on a corner in Peoria today. It's for sale...but seems a little rough. Sorry, didn't get a price..... Yes, it's a Harley - sorta.

    Looks like about 19 cents a pound to me.

    Well, unlike some of our BMWs, that sidestand looks solid as a rock.
