Heirlooms, dreams, and diggers
Well since the Smokeout I have been a little burned out. Just trying to get back into the swing of working 70+ hours a week. We have the worst bike that has ever entered our doors at the present. It is the most cobbled together JANKY pile of shit I have had to work on in a while. Lucky for us the owner wants it put in order. Any ways I will get to the meat of this post. Ever since I can remember I have wanted my grandpa's truck. He bought a 1951 ford pu in 1951 and drove it untill he died in 96. All three of my uncles drag raced it at different times and then it went back into daily driving status when they but a 302, c4, 9 in.rear end in it. Every few years I would start in on my uncles about the truck and I would always get that one of them was gonna restore it blah blah blah. Well lets just say that pestering will pay off if you are willing to wait. 36years of wanting this truck and now it is on its way to me. This is the only kind of heirloom I would want. It has good history, It is in fairly good shape and I should be able to get it rode worthy in a couple of week ends. I will post some pics as soon as it arrives. It has been sitting in a barn for 14 years so I am sure there are some things that will have to be attened to but I am gonna take my time with this one and do it right. I bought the digger project off Tony and will be assembling parts for that . Have almost everything already but the details are gonna make me lose sleep. Root beer metal flake paint, gold 19 mags front and rear, 6 over 39mm sportster forks, pull backs, You get the picture. Thanks for listening and we have some bikes leaving soon so if you need some work done give us a ring.
