Turn his sorry ass in!
Craig, JB's right, I won't part the bike out, yet. No, I'll keep it together, HOWEVER....I have got an original set of SR pipes, almost like new, that I paid $400 for and at this point, I probably won't be using them.
I've had a bit of bad luck. Three weeks ago, I bent down early in the AM to pick up a fairly light box and felt my back go. This is not that unusual, especially when my bod' isn't loosened up yet and takes about a week for the soreness to go away. But this felt worse than usual. Two days later my left foot went numb. The doctor prescribed anti-inflamatories and told me to make another appt if I didn't get better. I didn't, and to make a long story short, the MRI shows a herniated disc between L4 and L5 on the left side. I meet with the neuro-surgeon next Monday. This on top of my wife about to have our child anytime this month, and I am self-employed. I can't imagine I won't go under the knife and if so, I will have to find somebody to run the route for a month or so.
After I get through all this, it will probably be wise for me to only ride cushy bikes, as in modern bikes. So, I'm going to be selling off all my vintage stuff, and yes that will include my B'stone 175 Hurricane Scrambler. Also, my Van Tech S90 project, my other Van Tech frame and gas tank, the B'stone 200 project with the NOS barrels and pistons, all my B'stone rebuilt cranks, pistons and what-have-you, all my H1 stuff<2 good engines and spares>, etc. I'll have two little kids pretty soon, and although I've always kept myself in pretty good shape, apparently I need to be more careful of my back. Anybody who'd care to make reasonable offers on any of this stuff is quite welcome to it as I think my vintage days are over. Otherwise, it's ebay, baby! Oh, and I was just starting a Triumph 500 bobber as I had procured a Tricor rigid rear section to go on a 500 frame that I have, so that's definitely something I won't be riding.
That's the way it goes, sometimes.
