    Obvious repops are what we must use.

    After all, making exact and authentic hardware would be counterfeiting.

    Would you like to comment specifically about my reproductions, Exeric?

    There is a long line of individuals that took the time to discuss, help and provide tutelage to these kids and more like them. Trial and error, a better use of science and materials, and lack of an ego are all traits these younger guys posses.
    Most "old guys" didn't really get serious about restoring and collecting until the kids were raised, the job and future secured and then did we proceed with our passion. To think we are the last of the "Breed" is not opinion I share with you. There will be some to step up, there will be some that won't, and there will be a lot of quality machines for them to pick from.
    When MC sales went in the toilet and bikes could be bought by the pound years ago, the same statements were uttered. Look what happened in the 80s and into the 90's....No one can say where this market will go, not you, not I, not anyone.
    I can't help but wonder if in 40 years a group of guys will come upon a Honda Rune in a shed and look upon it as we have done when seeing a Indian 4 or a Knuckle head under a tarp in a shed. I choose to believe there will always be guys waxing nostalgic and will carry the torch......
    Yes, I do teach.
    Kudos to all the guys who are involved in the cannon Ball.
    I am always happy to be proven wrong.

    And gals, if there are any, I hope, Mick?
    Any credit for just having CB customers?

    I see that Dale Walksler's buddy that helps him sell his stuff on Ebay, just sold an Eagle Iron pair of 1958 badges for $227.50. Well, he didn't get $499.99 like the other seller wants, but it's still a lot of money.
