More Old Pics I Scanned

Here are some more of the pics I found and scanned in last night. Basically it's pics of my old '75 XLCH that was my first chopper, and some more pics of my Triumph.

My '75 XLCH the way it looked when I first bought it. It even had a windshield.This was around 1991.

Finally on the road sometime around 1994. Didn't last long until I burned a piston though. Don't put an adjustable mainjet on a bendix carb if you don't know what you're doing.

The Triumph the way it was when I got it.I guess this was 1990 or so as well.

First time it was chopped.

Rebuilding it after I was rear ended by a truck. I told y'all I was a shadetree mechanic and you didn't believe me.

All together again. Too bad that by this point the motor was having major issues. It took over 3 years to get it money to afford a motor rebuild.

Finally as it sits today just for reference.

I have some more old pics I'll try to post soon. Maybe in a week or so I can get out and get some current pics going on.

  2. Wow! Thank you VERY much. I put my heart into this place and hope others dig it. I have a big warm fuzzy right now. Thanks for the kind words.
