    finally got the bike onto the ground... first time in over 4 years

    Hello and I hope everyone is having a good day

    I apologize for cluttering the place with this thread
    no questions from me today... for a change..

    I got my project bike onto the ground (its own wheels) this last weekend
    1st time its been on its own "feet" since I started disassembly on 12/25/2017

    so it felt like a real turning point in the project and makes me excited for a 1st ever ride.... (I've never ridden an airhead)

    anyways thanks for all the help I've gotten from this board
    thanks for your consistently excellent help Kurt!

    Those

    Those baskets and boxes of parts really were a motorcycle!

    You did a great job, it looks very nice indeed. Enjoy riding it. St.
