    Default motorcycle repair shop

    Not really military so if this doesn't fit the forum, feel free to
    delete it.

    For years, my mother would send me a "Franklin Mint" diecast
    bike for my birthday. Most are in a glass cass but I felt I needed
    a proper display for a couple of them.

    The tool box and work bench are exact 1/12 scale replicas of my
    bench and one of my tool boxes at my job. What do you think,
    not too bad for an old biker ?

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    All of the tool box and work bench drawers open. As do the shop
    windows. The cutting torch tanks were made from CO2 pellet
    gun cylinders.

    The entire thing is only 24" x 12" x 12".

    Wow!! is all I say!! this mini garage is fantastic! It looks so realistic. Excellent job....you have a great eye for this.

    Captain America's bike partly covered is a nice touch....where's Billy's bike? I have a pic somewhere of me and Peter Fonda at the second or third Love Ride they had just started doing from Glendale Harley in Glendale, Ca. I proposed to my first wife on that charity ride over 20 years ago. The wife is long gone....but I still have my bike

    From one old biker to another....a job well done my friend....

    Thanks Steve. I actually like the Billy bike better than the Capt. America bike. I am working on an oldTriumph Chopper that has the same lines as the Billy bike.

    Having your picture taken with Peter Fonda would be a pretty
    cool thing to have. I have talked to Willy G. Davidson. He
    donated a bunch of autographed HD stuff to me and the club I
    rode with for a ride/raffle we we putting on.

    BTW. Nice looking ride

    Ahh Ha...I missed Billy's bike, I was too interested and amazed by the garage pics. I do not understand how you made all that stuff, like a drill press and band saw and.............!!!

    I had a pic handy of me and Willie G. it's from many years ago (13-14yrs) at Bike Week in Daytona. He was a nice guy. You can be nice easy when your a multi-millionaire.

    Steve

    BTW...thanks, she a good bike...1987 FXRS-SP....they did not make many of my bike. 1340cc, rubber mount, belt drive bla bla....and a really nice 1 year only tank paint scheme, with the gold and flames HD.

    You settled good Gary, she's a nice one. Red is the only other color bike I would ride (besides a black bike of course)
