Been amateur wrenching, building and riding bikes since my brother gave me his dead Honda Cub 50 when I was 13! Many moons and many bikes ago!

I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a perfect bike, car, house, person, or world, and our enjoyment of our lifetime here depends solely on our willingness and ability to accept this as fact and have a great time in spite of all shortcomings.

Although I have no interest in high performance mods, I do enjoy "improving" a good thing, and my LC has seen several modifications to improve it's reliability, comfort and looks.

Raised on a small farm with little family income, I learned early on how to make things fit that won't, and how to make things work that don't. "Cut to suit, beat to fit, and paint to match!
