A 1948 Panhead Harley. Hand shift converted to foot shift. Manual spark advance. A hard tail.

The bike was bought with a huge rake rail forks and ape hanger bars. I rebuilt bike to the Fat Bob look. Man that bike had torque. The hand shift transmission you could go to any gear directly without hitting the other gears. It was a 4 speed but all I really needed was 1st and 4th. You could start out in 4th for that matter too.

Just one solid piece of Milwaukee history.

At the time I had no idea it would become a classic so I traded it in on my next car rather than fixing the engine and keeping it... Still miss that old car.

I am with you the 55 had better lines, fatter and looked "badder" than the 57

I've been watching a lot of Top Gear lately, and it really makes me want to scrap together a couple thousand bucks and buy an 80's stick shift car and run it into the ground

1987 Honda CRX Si.  Purchased in 1997 with about 130,000 miles on it, drove it for 2 years and put another 33,000 miles on it with no problems whatsoever.  Then I sold it for exactly what I paid 2 years earlier.  Great car, and impossible to find something these days with a curb weight a good bit south of 2,000 pounds.

    • The round I played yesterday was the first time when both my SG:D and SG:A were better than the 10 handicap level.  That's pretty good, especially since I know what I need to work on in terms of long game (and that has been improving a bit, too). 
    • Day 70 (6/13/21) - My wife filmed me taking swings with an 8-iron and Driver (w/o a ball) in the backyard. Positions seemed pretty good in the backswing, but in the downswing, I noticed that I have a tendency to let the club open up as I started down, thus requiring a correction at impact. Based on this information, I did several more swings focusing on keeping the clubface square to my line throughout the swing. Will work on ingraining this feeling again tomorrow. 
    • Every other weekend I play a modified version of match play with a friend of mine.  We play all 18.  Today I lost 8 to 6.  However...we also keep a cart score:  the winning/tying score, each hole, being the cart score for that hole.   Our previous low cart score had been +4.  This morning we managed a +3.  
    • Whoever chose this course (me) should be punished. And @georgep too. Apologies.
    • I recorded my swing in face on and down the line and have uploaded it here. Please critique and provide feedback. Appreciate your time on this! Thanks! 11 HCP. 8 Iron. Looking to optimize swing and learn to score in Golf.
