35 years ago, (I'm 46) i was ratting bikes out of trash pickings. The evolution of my wheeled wrenching becomes a love of rebuilding (some ratted) 60's and 70's jap motorcycles when 20 years ago they were practically free! Some were.
My 4! sons come along, time FLIES, oldest is now in college, gallon of milk a day, 4 cars, motorized scoots all sold, so its back to basics.
A few bikes have come my way and before i know it, i've got more than a few.
My latest and what really got me back to this is my '51 Phantom. Patina'd nicely and all there, but needs enough to require my tools and that is what this is really all about.
So, hello! Thanks for sharing the right attitude.
Anybody got a Schwinn locking springer fork steer tube? (Ill post to "wanted" too)
Edit added pics.
Forgot to mention its an Excelsior Black Phantom.
