Default Re: Clever Bike Names

Just thought this one up- bogus history for a BTR.
In 1904, Thomas Fletcher partnered up with Edward Wadsworth to build motorcycles. Their first machine rolled out of the shop in March of that year. When they went to paint it, they realised that there was not enough room on the gas tank to properly display both of their names- so the combined the first sylable of each of their names to create th "1904 FL#TCHW&D"... see if yer local DMV will buy THAT story and register it as an antique!!!!
