Bumping for the newbies, and to tell people his daughter Cat honored me with ownership of Bessie. Let's just say I teared up a little today. Thank you Cat.

I'm going down Sunday morning to pick her up. Will probably do a post on getting her up and running again.

I had a dream the day before yesterday with Wolfie in it. We were sitting around a campfire drinking PBR's and he asked me when we were going for a ride. I wasn't planning on putting Bessie on the road until spring because I know me and I don't wanna ride her in the snow. So I'm outside today working on her (,the headlight wasn't working, the connector came loose on the junction box after doing the blue wire mod) and I thought, maybe I'll take the plate off the Honda and put some gas in Bessie. I heard a thought in my head, "DO IT". So I put the plate on her, grabbed the mason jar urn I have Wolfie's ashes in, and went to put gas in the tank for winter storage. I ended up taking a 50 mile ride on her and she ran flawlessly. I would not have done that if it wasn't for the dream. Now I can't wait for spring.

I found a luggage rack , and seeing that Wolfie had a trunk all painted to match (Wolfie wouldn't have gone through all the effort to paint the trunk if he wasn't planning on putting it on her) I decided to mount it.

Looking good Doc. Cheers Wolfie!

What's the script on the front fender? Would like to hear those pipes.

Says Classic. The pipes are a little throatier than stock but not too loud. He put baffles in the end. You also hear the roar from the pod filters

Maybe I've heard it and just forgot.

I must be trying to copy that, I've shopped for 65 Impala tail lights and was looking at batwings last month.

I think the front fender came off a 900 Vulcan
