    Selling build off bikes

    I had a number of people ask if my Roadster was for sale the first weekend I rode it. Hadn't thought about selling it or even what price to put on it. At this point I'm way too attached to it to sell it, it's my favorite bike so far!

    Thanks for the schooling, that's a detail I did not know. The '52-'54 Fords were otherwise identical except for minor grille changes. I still have the headlight rings and bezels from that car!

    These are a couple of shots of the Bonneville Roadster's maiden ride and debut at Houston's Friday Night's Critical Mess ride...the ride was great and the bike rode and performed flawlessly! One nice custom in a sea of...well, other bikes, lol. This was at the halfway point... The rest...

    Thanks buddy, yep I made it! Maiden voyage went off without a hitch, bike rode great, though we only rode about 15 miles! I couldn't be happier with how it turned out, it was quite the jaw dropper, lol! I'll post pics of tonight's ride in a minute. Already have another ride tomorrow night!
