I'm thinking I'm going to do a Harley themed stove. I don't think anyone is doing one of those. Doug

OK now that mines disassembled and all that gooey paint is going to be stripped off (I promise no more Orange markout paint). Im hoping to be done way before the deadline. Unfortunately its propane so im leaning on my secret weapon cooking on top to seal the top spot.. :R

Know why Harley riders have a squared off thumbnail?












so they can screw the bike back together while they are riding it.... :lol:
Old joke from the AMF days, younger members may not understand that one.

Yuppers... Our first Harley was built during the AMF years, right hand shift, kick start, and every year the annual changing of the swing arm bearings. She was pretty but she was a shirt tripper. One good thing about the kick start and right hand shifter was know one would know how to ride it if the stole it! :lol:

Yup my FLH had a rigged up Jockey shifter down low so it was a handful for anyone to ride.. The hidden kill switch for the coil worked good too.. :beer:
