Damien pointed out that I passed my two year anniversary here on the forum in November. When he commented on "all my bikes" he mentioned the ones that I have sold. With all the fun I have been having just this past year, I even forgotten about the Schwinn Cruiser I built and sold. That was actually a pretty nice bike that I enjoyed riding quite a bit for several months.

So, I thought I would take a walk back down "memory lane" and highlight the 8 motorbikes I have built/ refurbished / and or sold and the one antique bike I parted out due to paying too much for it as it was.

Thanks to all that have helped on all of these projects and whether it was directly in response to a question or just your posting of your work and knowledge, I could not have done any of this and had this much fun without all of your help. Thank you very much:

Enjoy the ride!
