Welcome to the club, Red! Lots of friendly and knowledgable people here.
Greetings from across the water. I'm on the West coast of MI, where the ferry docks on the other side.
Nice looking bikes! Having built a kit motor cruiser and OCC chopper myself, I understand what you've put into building them. Weren't my bikes, but I put a lot of time in helping my stepdad get his together. He didn't like the upkeep, and eventually sold both.
I've since built myself a couple DIY chainsaw bikes and ride them exclusively now. Tons of fun.
