1942 GPW is sold. We had so much fun with this little Jeep. No brakes and riding full tilt around the yard was a blast. Kinda ironic that the local Jeep dealer is purchasing it to put on the roof. Doesn't he know it is actually a Ford? Oh well!

So I never knew that some Harley dealers carry poker chips stamped with the dealer's name and location. Kevin has a friend Greg that her used to ride with in the Marine Corps that keeps in touch with him. Everytime he and his wife go to a new dealer they ask for these chips and mail two of them to us. It's kinda like a t-shirt swap but much cheaper on the pocketbook. I guess I never noticed that they had them. He also sent me this points cover that he had engraved off his 1978 sporty when he was in the service. Very nice gift and I am happy to have it. Thanks again Greg and Cindy!

So here we go...again. Thursday went to the HD dealer in Durham since they had my clutch cable in stock. Got there and asked the kid "You sure this is correct it looks too short?" He answers "Yah it's right" This morning get the bike in the shop, the radio going, coffee in hand, and start tearing the bike down.
Pull the primary off, broken cable out and NO FREAKIN WAY!!! Dial the HD in Durham and after complaining about how I told them it didn't look correct they tell me they found the correct cable. So yet another drive to Durham. Approx: 50 miles round trip cause someone was slack...myself. I knew I should have measured things cause more than likely you will get the incorrect parts if you aren't following up on them. Parts get mislabeled blah blah blah. Anyhow with the correct cable in hand. I can get things reassembled.
So frustrating day: Motto for the day measure twice cut once. Always trust your gut.

This week was a very long one. Tuesday I got home told Kevin I wanted to go for a ride and get some ice cream. 100 yards from the house my clutch cable snaps. I push the bike back to the house as Kevin pulls back in the driveway. He tells me he will start the car......I said Nah! I will ride with you on the rigid. I switched from wrapping my legs around him to resting them on the frame since he doesn't have any pegs and so he can shift since its a jokey shift. Ice cream was great! Ride was even better. Spending time with Kevin---priceless.

Here are some progress pictures of everyone working on the 1981 Ironhead.
Kevin and Ken getting the bike ready to test ride.
Ken asked me to make sure the point were gapped correctly.
Phillip was ready to ride. Debbie was overseeing the work.
Neal enjoyed the test riding
Ready to find its next owner. Ironheads are great. Email if you are interested in this gem. You could ride it as is or chop it.

This weekend was a busy one. Yesterday a few of the OG crew got together and worked (drank beer) on this 1981 Ironhead project of Mr. Ken's and Kelvin.
Gun show, Tattoo show and working on old motorcycles. It was a very busy weekend. Now if only it will cool off this week would be better. Have a great week!

Updating my blog and the Wild One comes on tv. Kinda ironic. We wish we could have spent more time hanging out at the party but had to be at my brother's place. It was great time no matter how hot the weather.
Thanks to Kelly for the great pictures.
Have a great week and ride safe!
Thanks to Kelly for the great pictures.
