What? Doesn't EVERYONE'S garage look like this?!?!
a picture from back in the days when I did a LOT of work on bikes!
NOTE: I will post the picture of my old Spagthorpe Dalmatian as soon as I can find it.
The bikes above are just a few of the 50+ I've owned in my life. I will probably always have at least 1 or 2 around (in some state of disrepair or another).
I started riding bikes when I was 9 and wound up racing them on the local short tracks (dirt oval) before switching to Enduro/Hare Scrambles. My best finish was 10th in the Amateur Open class in a national event in North Louisiana out of a field of some 40+ riders! I have also built several One-Off bikes such as the Husky 400cc WR engine in the Husky 250CR frame! (mind you, this was BEFORE the factories started doing this stuff and "lay-down" shocks were Cutting-Edge technology!) Tommy (my brother and the owner of the bike) claimed that it didn't have a throttle... it was an altitude control.
