I wanted to drop a line here to just say thanks for all the feedback on my posting. I will attempt to get back to each of you (off list) but this has been the single largest feedback I have ever received on a posting here and go figure, it was about a car. I was also surprised how many of you have this dual personality (classic cars & bikes). I guess if it is round and spins we have the DNA that attracts us all to the same shape and motion. I recall running into a fellow bike collector some time ago at an antique phonograph meet. Again round and spinning, guess there is something to this phenomenon. Oh and for those of you worried that I may never ride a bike again, that is not the case. I am just parting with things that I could not maintain. It was getting sad to see my favorite bikes with an inch of dust, haze on the chrome and flat tires because I could not give them all consistent attention. I figure it is better to have someone ride and enjoy these bikes then have them sit lonely and unattended.

Happy Holidays
