    and here's a few pics of various pieces of my 27 JD project since it's an antique motorcycle. As i've mentioned before, the can of Olive Green touch up came with Dad's 27 when he bought it new.

    Thanks, Eric. The man is believed to be my grandfather who died when my mom was very young. She found these in a bunch of old family photos. Dale

    That is an interesting picture, and like you, I had not seen it until a few weeks ago when I copied it from another forum. I don't know what to make of the bike in the foreground as it has racing bars, but it is a road model. I wonder if it's a period hot rod as Excelsiors had the reputation of being able to eat Harleys, and Indians for lunch. The Excelsior in the background is a Series 20, and not a common bike in it's own era.

    That's a classic double entendre Steve; and you're right, that X does have BIG spotlights
