Non IT Project Website
« on: December 28, 2016, 04:11:07 PM »
So for the past year I've been working on an antique Harley custom/restoration project. So while I was on Christmas vacation I decided to slap together a website for the project that chronicles some of the (hopefully) more interesting parts of the project.

Granted I still haven't done anything with my main site ... But this has been way more fun.

Project Alice

In the garage I get to use a hammer!

Heh I read through all of this and I love your writing style xD Not a fan of Harley's myself (I prefer bikes that don't break down every 38 minutes 😂) but I love what you have done with yours!

Yes, an entertaining read  :thumbsup:
in spite of not having much of a clue what goes on in engines etc, I love reading / watching this kind of thing.

Also liked the way you bought the manual *after* having worked on it for most of a year :-)

LOL Okay... Just checking :D

Years ago I worked on the big 4 from Japan at a motorcycle salvage/repair shop. They also did the Britts...and pretty much everything else except Harleys. I found back then that I really liked how both Honda and Kawasaki build their machines. Yamaha and Suzuki however both drove me nuts with some of their design choices that frequently left me wondering WTF were they thinking when they cobbled this thing together??

The Britts were always fun to work on/ride because of the delightful - stick-to-the-basics - simplicity of their designs ... This also is/was/remains a big part of my attraction to Harley.

So at least we share some common ground in the Honda/Triumph arena. ;)

But I have to stick with the Sport Touring class of bike, as - even being over 50 - the full on Sport bikes are just too much of a temptation for me to keep a Driver's License with.
