    Default My presentation

    Hello everyone.
    My presentation will not be original, I am an old man who likes old bikes.
    I only had 2 Harley, a 883 and a 1584 cm3.
    I had to sell them to my regret but, I always wanted to learn the mechanics.
    I'm rebuilding, I'm trying to do something about an old motorcycle.
    Here is his story:

    I forgot, I am from Dijon in Burgundy.

    Hello,
    I have made some headway in my project but unexpected difficulties have slowed my ambitions.

    its one of the funniest things ive ever seen.

    one of the guys round here is Ironman, when i met him he had a 1980something Suzuki GS1000G, on his tool cabinet Says Andre GS1000E, i will always remember Ironman doing every thing on his GS1000G, he sold it because being the perfectionist he is couldnt handle the fact that every 6months had to replace rubbers or this or that, and parts where harder and harder to get, some one rearended the bike and he was able to get parts some second hand to get her running again. but eventually he said i love this bike, but replaced it for a little run around bergman.

    so sad that the older bikes get so hard to keep.

    i remember riding the old Lady, inline 4 thousand wtih a good amount of power and torque, but man, a kid like me had to have a quick lesson in how to stop bikes with 80's brakes
    Lifes like riding the open road. its got its up hills, down hills, its thunderstorms and sunshine, doesnt matter where your going as long as you enjoy the ride

    I created a logo and I found a site where you can buy a t-shirt with this one above. For each t-shirt sold, I will receive a small commission, which will allow me to continue the 'adventure.
    Here is the secure site link:

    A very simple original gift.

    Those are really great old bikes you have them and it's sad that they have to be sold. I was wondering, did you fix them by learning more about the mechanics and keep them instead? or did you push through with selling them? I'm really curious.

    Thank you for your interest in my project.
    It was almost 10 years since I started, despite all the personal problems I encountered, no one wanted to buy me my project because it was too expensive and there was no title.
    I didn't count my working hours in sales.
    After having solved my work problems, I continue with my project.
    I didn't sell a T-shirt, unfortunately I couldn't find a sponsor either.
    I will try to finish it with my limited means.
    I'm still learning mechanics, it's always so interesting.
