Ok so I am on motor #2 and actually the 4th I've looked at. This one should be a gem. Everything is there as well as a 3 speed w/overdrive transmission. Got some extras I can sell and I will tear it down this week end. As for the skateboarding I have gone two days in a row. Some kind of record. My legs are weak and my ankles are the same as a 93 year old womens but I still had some fun.I will go and make little goals for myself. Like yesterday was to do a feeble grind transfer on this tiny little spine quarter pipe. It took me about 20 tries but by god I did 1. Then split.

Top 5 Saurday
Top 5 Reasons To Go Ride Your Bike.
Number 1. That is what they were intended to do. Because look great sitting in your shop but they look really good on the road.
Number 2. The weather has finally broke in the Midwest and it has been really nice to get home and go for a ride. I'll take 60's all day long.
Number 3. Free Mind Free Soul. Man get out there and ride till your mind cleans itself out. Sometimes it could be 10 miles or maybe it takes 60 but if your on your cycle it doesn't matter either way,
Number 4. Clear the cobwebs out of your girl. I have been lucky this year being able to ride the bikes like once a month all winter. But usually they need some TLC in spring to get them ready for summer. Adjust valves, change oil, inspection of parts, etc etc. Love that shit.
Number 5. There is no way better to experience life then doing something that could kill you in a heartbeat. Remember that and you will ride that bike of yours that much more.

Top 5 Things About American Graffiti
Number 1. It captured that time so perfectly that it is almost a case study. The hair, clothes, cars etc etc
Number 2. As a kid I watched it every time it was on TV. It had hot rods and kustoms, cute girls and thugs. I remember the first time I really noticed that chopped Merc the dudes are driving and was just like FUCK that car is amazing
Number 3.The music or soundtrack would be the right word is great. Now by my taste today its kinda cheesy but I have always liked rock and roll. They used a bunch of acts in the movie that were real bands that played old school rock and roll. Like the band in the dance scene was a real band. In the 70's there was a huge resurgence of acts playing 50's style rock and roll and rockabilly. Of course it was always a little off but I would rather hear that shit all day then disco or soft rock in the 70's. Luckily for me right about the time I was finding my own music all that shit had died. I bought a Jerry Lee Lewis Great Balls Of Fire EP and a Buddy Holly Ep at a garage sale they were my first two records I ever bought.The Buddy Holly song was because it was in the movie. Still love Buddy Holly.
Number 4. There is a scene right before Milner is gonna race Harrison Ford at the end. Milner went to his shop to uncork the headers and when he leaves the shop the car looks and sounds like a wild beast. He kinda pops the clutch and the car lurches forward kinda scary like. As a kid I dreamed that someday I would have a fire breathing deathtrap. Still on my list of most haves. Kinda got more into kustoms but always in the back of my head is that car.
Number 5.We always want what we can't have. I think it's human nature to want things that are impossible to get. Mine would be a time machine. Can you even imagine being alive when the only thing that mattered was cruising, street racing and trying to pull some pelt. Whatever right now we are all connected in and it would be almost impossible to exist with out all our devices. I look at 1962 like a perfect example of pre-beatles, pre-vietnam, pre-government restrictions on vehicles time machine. Now go watch it and really take it in.
