    Hello, My Friends...

    With 106 miles on the odometer, I'm gettin' ready for my last ride before Oscar's Mushroom Lifter "Implant Surgery".

    A fine looking bike, Hal.

    But you ride in tennis shoes? Shame on you! :)

    I think it's a darned sight better than this photo of me on Baxter (I'm at a living history event, hence the Civilian Defense gear):

    Hey Kilroy...

    You must be re-enacting the WWII "Block Warden" scene that I remember as a kid in the '40's. The Roosevelt badge sets the period!

    Thanks, Kep1a...

    ...but I anticipate a routine, uneventful procedure...the only problem is, I HAVE ONLY ONE 10mm WRENCH, and I would feel very unprofessional going in there with a small Crescent Wrench to use as the lockdown!

    Hi Hal & Oscar,
    If you have a real small Crescent wrench, it could be used on the top of the bolt [just to hold in place], and the 10 MM could be used to secure the locking nut. Make sure you have a 8 MM to hold the lifter.

    Have fun,

    :eek:fftopic: Good eye, but actually I'm an Auxiliary Policeman in that photo. I also do an Air Raid Warden impression at living history events. Here's a shot of me as a Chief Air Raid Warden at Fort Miles (Cape Henlopen - where we held the East Coast Motoredbike Rally in October).

    Hey, and see, all this time I thought you were in the Infantry carring a 1903 A-1 Springfield, and a back pack with one of those cute lil folding shovels......

    I didn't have two so I went to my local flea market and picked up a brand new S-K for five bucks.

    I'm not sure if the adjustable wrench will work well. Some of the clearances are tight.

    Hey M'bike Mike:

    Those "cute little folding shovels" are called "Entrenching Tools".

    I can just hear the Platoon Sergeant tell his men:

    "Listen up, troopers...we're gonna dig in on the enemy's flank, so get out those cute little folding shovels and go to work!"

    Thank you for your service to our country. Since Kilroy had to show off his uniform I had to show off mine and the Cushman.

    Hey Jim:

    I was not a Lt. Col.

    In fact, I was not an Officer at all...I was discharged (honorably) as a Spec 4.

    That Cushman sure looks like Government Issue, with the O.D. paint job!

    Speaking of Cushman many of you remember these that came from my High School days in the early 1950's?




    Harley Davidson 125


    Western Auto


    Of all the above, the Mustang was the most admired.

    Hi Hal, Never ran into a Mustang or Western Auto in my youth, but the Salsbury was one quick scooter.

    Have fun,
