    Wait, is that a fresh "For Sale" sign in the front yard, hidden by the front of the bike?
    Good choice! I would have sold the farm for that bike too! :mrgreen:

    Great find. This is my dream bike and I have always said there has to be one out there in an old barn somewhere. So this gives me hope that I might find in any condition one someday.

    I agree with Hooch a stretched black elgin blue bird with red wheels and whitewalls would look good.
