    Identify this motor cycle

    Yea I've seen the barn dust for sale a few times on craigslist and Facebook market place. I thought it was pretty funny, kinda like when they sell the smoke for the Lucas electrical systems. I've seen them post a pile of cow chit and list it as a barn find. If you really need some I can hook you up but use it sparingly, too much could throw you into another tax bracket.

    Yea an oil leak would kill the sale on a pan. 🙄 A lot of non original parts on that one, at least it has the original barn dust which always drives the value up.

    If you have been following the motorcycle market you will agree as stated above it is flooded with good used low mile bikes. Not as many people buying bikes as their were 5, 10 or 15yrs ago. The younger generation doesn't seem to be interested in bikes. The older motorcycle enthusiast and collectors are gradually fading out. Harley has seen this trend coming for some time, hence all the new models they have been offering over the last few years trying to catch the eye of the younger crowd. I don't think its helping. I've heard of kids not even interested in getting their driver license, we all know what that meant to us. The world has changed. I'm going to predict that the high prices that the old Knuckles and Pans have commanded for years are going to soften. I also think old cars will follow suit. If you go to swap meets, junk yards or estate sales its mostly old fossils just like me. I don't think following is going to be there in the future. I see too many signs of it now.

    Sleepless nights

    I turned 50 in November. I have always worked a lot of hours. I generally work 56 a week now and off 2 days. I have no trouble going to sleep, staying asleep that's where it changes. I'm usually up a few times, get back to sleep pretty quick most times. I can never sleep late, not even when I try hard. 25yrs of getting up at 4am has done something to me. For most of my life I haven't been a morning person. Anymore I like to get up, have some coffee, make the family " Big Daddy Breakfast" as they call it. Listen to some Waylon, Bill Monroe or Wayne the train Hancock as I cook. Or maybe just "Barter Time" or talk radio on the old AM tube radio. When I was young I could have slept for days if left alone. No way now!
  6. I put one up recently that I purchased from Harbor freight. It was ( with the cupon ) $199.99 and it's a 10 x 17. The brand name is Cover Pro. I did a couple of extra things when I put it up that may not be required at all. I added an extra tarp between the frame and the top and slid some of that extremely light foam insulating board in between the tarp and the top. I also opted for some of the screw anchors from the pet section that are meant to tie and stake off a dog. It came with anchors but these worked better. I put this up to store a body in out of the weather. This week we had very strong winds, it's done fine. Pretty happy with it, I would buy another. For no more than I gave for it if it lasted 6months I would be happy, I think it will last much longer than that though.

    Junkyard Photos

    I took my son often to many junkyards off the beaten path when he was growing up. He told me recently that was the coolest thing he remembers as a kid and was so fortunate to have been able to see all the old stuff. He's a gearhead now himself, loves vintage autos and is a pretty darn good mechanic. Which is unusual for this generation. We had fun, it was always like a treasure hunt.

    FACEBOOK

    I never participated in or Facebook till I changed jobs in April. I had an account for about a year before that I only used for the market place. When I left my old job my buddies wanted to keep in touch and it seemed like a good tool for that. I guess it has been, but my biggest use is still the market place.

    Gone but not forgotten

    I sure have learned a lot from that car! Of course I mean from the step by step pics that were recorded through the build. Like mentioned above, glad a forum member has purchased it.

    Craigslisters

    I have vented over this often. I have scored some awesome deals on craigslist and some I've wondered WTH happened? I guess more often than not it's worked out well. I have discussed several times in the past how on Craigslist if it's listed with an Email only they will never respond. The only time I had a response was when I bought 2 welders and a shrinker/stretcher last fall. The guy outright lied, it was pretty obvious when I was asking about the machines but I was still pretty sure I could come out. I was able to repair both for less than $150 bucks. The machines are probably worth $1500 a piece. I have done well on Facebook market place. I rarely ever see any Plymouth parts our era there but I have seen several cars for sale at reasonable deals. Bought lots of AMC Jeep parts there. Vintage tools and machinery galore!
