Re: Motorcycle Racket

Thanks everyone. I built this completely in my small apartment garage. Cutting, welding, painting, all of it. My neighbors loved me. This site was a huge motivation for me to do it all myself. Thanks JJ and crew!

Re: Motorcycle Racket

I rarely ever post here and this bike definitely isn't as cool as some of the others listed, but I thought some might appreciate it since its painted in VW colors (L87 and L325).

I bought a few beams in the early days, then eventually transitioned over to more of the american iron and motorcycles. Although I don't have anything VW-related t...

Make sure to take a drink or ten of the local beer selection. Some mighty fine german style beers in that town. And you can even drink in the streets!

Great shots of Paso. Looks like it is getting bigger and better every year. I hope to make the drive to that show in my 54 BelAir within the next year or two. A true test. Smile

They also have weather proof buttons, used in conjunction with your remote popper that you can hide under your ride that you can push to let yourself in, but if your battery goes dead-they're useless. I had shaved the handles on my old 69 bug. Used the Autoloc system with the waterproof button. As ...
