I deem I've been misunderstood. I do not believe that a plethora of single focus sites can replace ONE well ordered site with all the information on it. I have the CR as my opening site, because sooner or later I end up on it anyhow. It's great and it's a bummer you're a bit burned out.I'd be glad to help with the site. Your closing sentence ("I appreciate the interest though and await the next bright star on the horizon of vintage bike lore") sounds a bit redundant to me since all this group is interested is the faded stars. It's those faded stars that I wish represented. Let me know what I can do.

ride on, kim
