    Every one of my motorcycles are original paint bikes. I painted it or somebody else painted it. Still original paint.

    Don't forget the air in the tires, Len!

    It would take something like fourteen refills to eliminate all the original air.

    The government told me that.

    I have discovered many details that were previously not known, while restoring my 42WLA. That was part of the rewards for my research. What I discovered are known now.

    I'm new to this but I have an observation after presenting a bike for judging the first time. As flawed as the judging system maybe and as frustrating as it may be that more could be done, I think it's a valuable asset of the Club. There will always be "Trophy Hunters" you can't control somebodies motivation. But, I found the system to be educational, I learned from it and hope to present a more acurated bike the next time. The more that is identified as incorrect, whether during the Junior or Senior class, is only an opportunity to improve.

    And as mentioned, having the winners circle bikes videoed and archived would be great!

    Just my 2 cents.

    Love the idea of winners circle bikes recorded. Second time I heard that request this month. Something to be seriously figured out.Thanks for the comments.

    It may be something to think about but please consider this: I had a 55FL restored 20 years ago. It was a finely restored motorcycle and I had it judged 3 times and it made winners circle easily. 20 years ago the quality of repop parts was not what it is today. There were not many repop parts on the bike but the control cables were vinyl coated, the muffler did not have the seam, etc. etc. Date codes were not scrutinized as closely either. If that bike were judged today it may not even make a Jr. 1st. Now just because it was awarded winners circle in 1997, would it be a candidate for being archived just because it has a winners circle award? It was a great restoration in its day but I doubt that it would be one for the archives by today's standards. Just posting as food for thought.

    The context of the era would certainly have to play into how such a system would be archived.From what I hear, there are a lot of people who would love to go to one site and see some pretty good examples of a particular model. No matter what comes of it, it could never be perfect. But sometimes, something is better than nothing at all.
