Words to Live By

Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid it will never begin.

Thanks, Babe!

I'm not going to be doing a lot of blogging on this subject, but I feel I need to give credit where it's due. Big D has spent about 3 days working on this particular part of the bike he's building for me. The bike is a 1974 Ironhead Sportster, and it's going to be an original Big D Custom Creation. He's decided to go show-quality with it, so there will be many, many man-hours spent on this bike. It will be gorgeous when it's done.

The part is called a rocker box, please don't ask me what the hell it is or what it does; I just know that it's part of the motor and oil goes through it. This is the half that he hasn't worked on. This is how they looked when we bought the bike.


Now, this is the half that he has put so much time and energy into. See the difference?




Like I said, he's going show-quality with the bike. I'm not sure if that's a great idea, as it will be my first Harley, but he's pretty much made up his mind. Now I just have to sign up for the course and go get my license! Stay tuned!

So if he goes "show quality" with it, does that mean you will still be able to ride it?

Wow! I'd be thrilled to just have Craig take my minivan to the carwash! That is a true labor of love he's doing!! If that's the effort he's putting into a piece for flowing oil, I can't wait to see the finished product! It's going to be amazing!
