Default Re: I'm getting stopped a lot lately

I get the same thing if I leave my shed door open. The Higgins I'm building now comes really close to looking like an old street bike from the early teens, mock carbide lamp and all. I had a young fellow ask if he could buy it when I was done. (SHEESH! I'd like a chance to ride it for a while first, and after I do that I'm not sure I'll ever want to part with it.) I told him my new stock answer: "Sorry, I'm too poor to assume liability if you wreck it and decide to sue me." He looked dejected, but I knew he couldn't afford what I'd need to ask to break even anyway.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
