    well, today was a beautiful day, so i rolled the old fellow out into the sun and took a few more pictures. looks alot better on the ground than it does on the lift. then i rode it around the grounds a bit. everything seemed to work like it was supposed to. maybe tomorrow i'll go across the street where there's a nice quiet neighborhood with a large loop where i can get it into 3rd gear. the man on with the big grin is my buddy Ray Arndt. he's been in the motorcycle industry 51 years. he and his wife Cindy closed their "Mom & Pop" shop, March 1st, 2014. I had the privilege of working for Ray full time from 2011 til they closed their doors in 2014. Ray's the guy who said, "Why don't you build it?" when i was bringing in pieces to the shop to share the pain and the joy.

    here's a few more pics. The Olive Green really is wonderful color, it shifts it's hue, depending on the light.
