Nice, until you decide to turn it, and head out for more than a 15min ride. Unless you going to a drag strip?

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods.

Chopper Duke: I've found a few sources for Trumpet frames. There's a local guy I'd like to support, but the second bike I linked was made by a custom shop that pretty much specialized in Triumph. They have prefab rigid frames for a decent price.

Timber Ghost: Yeah, I really fell in love with the speed rigids. It all stemmed from the Triumph Speed Twin. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L bike, that one.

Splattttttt: Yeah, I've still got my new Bonnie for when I actually want to ride. The rigid Bonnie will be for when I want to ride.

If anyone is looking for a jacket, A* jackets are sized small. A 52/42 fits me and I am about 5'6" tops (150 or so lbs). Not a big guy, and it fits me perfect.

Edit: I think I am going to hunt a 250 down, a honda or kawi and learn to ride it really well and then move to a 600. Not a matter of killing myself haha, just that I want the experience and to be a far better rider than being scared on a 600 supersport for the first matter of time. Anywhere to search besides CL?

Basically the guy with the R6 didn't get back to me

Hondas are a solid bike. I would, depending on how far gone it is.

It's mostly disassembled, and has some minor damage. Ie, rear light stem things broken and hanging. Brakes disassembled. Tank is off, but was recently coated inside to prevent rust. Hasn't been run in years and needs new rubber.

$250 though, I think I can part it out for more :P

More than likely you can.

Few years back, when I was really into bikes, I picked up a '66 Honda 305 CL77 Scrambler. I think I paid $350 shipped and then maybe another $100 in parts for 3 Original tanks and an Original seat. Ended up parting it out for close to $2500 in parts.
