I would love to come and watch, I would even fetch the beer while you guys are working. I just bought a bike In Mission viejo (orange county) George you can grab it for me on the way to Nigels and pack it up for shipping to me! That would be great ! Smile I love you guys

Hmmm. Thanks, that may be a nice trip, got to find my way to San Jose............Now if I can get the bicycle on my motorcycle PCH is an awesome ride. Been up and down the coast, awesome, especially above SF.

Although your previous post re rim wear from braking makes me wonder if its worth the effort. I can mic the rims to see how much meat is left. Sounds like a good winter project.

No beer till the job is done PK.....No sweat Pk what bike did you get?

"No beer till the job is done PK" You make it sound to much like a job Smile Edgar Allen Poe would have never had Opium with that attitude! ha. I suppose its no different than running out of beer while working on a bike I can deal with that. Yea I picked up a 1990 Mongoose IBOC Comp. Sent my Brother in Santa Margarita to pick it up. Now I just got to get him to pack it tight and right to ship it to me. Classic spider webbing paint, straight tapered forks, and wishbone stays, Tange double-butted. all original rode a few times and been hanging for 20 some years. Just the kind I look for, My bro says it looks great. Should Fluff and Buff up nice he says.

Oh you know that George! Good deal on the wheel thing. We can hook up later on a beer. One of these days i will visit my brother and swing out your way for a visit I hope.I can't wait to get my hands on that IBOC. I am working on another in Pennsylvania. Still have not found your Team America but have not given up either. good things come to those who wait!
