SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

I've seen this a long time ago, just one pic tho.
Not sure which wheels I like better, they both look good.

Mr. Bob, Merry Christmas to you and all. I thought you'ld dropped off the end of Alaska. I hope next year will be a good one for you and all.

I do agree that the model T wheels look better.

Brother Rudy,

Happy New Year...

I'm afraid that dirty four letter word got in the way of my life for several months...

WORK!!!

The spoke rims remind me of early muscle cars or hot rods, finned drum brakes, etc.
But I really like the wires too.
