Harley M65 Manual arrived today

Thanks Ebay!

Check out the 1968 ‘photoshop’ work on the cover photo!  The bike is standing still, and there are some serious airbrushed/added highlights throughout the mufflers and handlebars. You can see a glow around the front tire where they masked the bike into the photo.  Nice work for 1968… and better than most Photoshop users today!

Harley Davidson M65 Manual. Open to the non sport version of the bike (just like my cupcake racer).

Off to get bike #2

The Palm Desert. The only thing growing out here is wind farms.

Heading out to Mark’s garage in the Palm Desert is like going to a giant candy store. SOooo many bikes…
He has a crazy palette jack that lowers the bikes from the racks.  He brought down BMW #2.  She looks fully complete.  Bummer about the dent in the tank. And bummer,  no title.

BMW up on a shelf. Ummm, yes, i’ll take THAT one.

Brought down from the rafters. A new home awaits! Cool palette system huh?

My buddy Matt Grayson secured a van for us to transport this bike back home.  He had his eye on the Honda CL200 (as did I).  He ended up taking it home for a mere $350.  If he didn’t buy it i was going to.

And out of all the bikes out there, i couldn’t get my eyes off of this rinky dink Harley Davidson.  I had to have it just because it is the complete Anti-Harley.  I can’t wait to get this used harleys cleaned up and running then to pull up to a Harley gang at a stop light and see the look on their faces.

I see myself headed back there for another bike… eventually.  There are sooo many gems sitting there that i want to get running and ride. Hopefully i can find a home for one of the Triumphs…
