Show-off! - Where's the rest though?

In the back of the garage  :nono SSSSH!
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Back on TOPIC.........................



Mrs Mustang doesn't give no quarter to the line up of sparkling shiny Milwaukee VIBRATORS parked at her work ......................
she takes the best parking spot everytime .
She earned it , she puts more miles on in a week than those vibrators do all summer .
her tiger has more mileage than all of them combined

I bought some ACF50... this is what it did - 19 months of mud, crud and flies destroyed - I just wanted to protect the bits which were suffering from year round use and outside storage.
I never clean my bikes, but this stuff has a bad influence on me, I even wiped over the all plastic bits :bug_eye
I suppose I'm impressed with it... it definately works as all the corroded bits have stopped looking corroded.  :icon_biggrin:

I did that today TP... l/hand engine cover - not just corroded though - a PO had used Hammerite! (hammered finish too... classy!) All this cleaning and fettling is getting to me, I even replaced the bent front brake lever  :bug_eye

Last week I drove my old Steamer in the Andalusian mountains in Southern Spain  :icon_cool:

My bike and my Steamer friends are originallly Dutchies but a few also live there. Over the years I all got them on a Steamer after they once drove it !!! We parked them at a friends place in Spain and a few times a year we fly over because riding in Holland sucks.... :^_^
Been \"Down Under\"from Holland/Europe with my 3 mates on 3 Tigers 955 in oktober/november 2005 and drove 15.000 km in 8 weeks through the Red centre and the Westcoast of Australia ! See our website !
