Rainy days

I've been plugging away on the '59. I think I am almost ready to paint the frame.

Dad got some heads to clean up at the swap meet

Tried my hand at upholstering an old shop stool

Went out tonight...

I went out for a little putt tonight very little. Picked up a six-pack and rode over to a good friends shop. Just sat around and shot the shit, no pictures just good times. Heading to Dixon tomorrow for the MMA swap-meet with dad maybe I can remember my camera.

 I saw this '59 on Craigslist bone stock all original no price but the guy had another one, only one serial number off.

Got a wild hair

After all this rain we have been getting I finally got bored enough to go over and start in on the folks new garage. After some shelves, a few pictures and parts we got most of one wall done today. It makes the place look much nicer.

More pieces to the puzzle

 I got lucky and found a set of '59 tanks on Ebay. The guy didn't know what he had put the wrong title and set a low "by now". I snagged them up and they were just what I expected. A little paint stripper, found the emblem area leaded in and only one ding. I just have to make the badge tabs, V-Twin's are just not right.

not even any primer under that blue
