Somehow or another I clicked on the wrong tabs and deleted all previous entries ... or at least I think so!! Blogging is all new to me so I guess I start again! This time with a picture of her transformation in progress! As I stated in the first blog ... I bought this "Kit" bike that was built for a friend of mine by some "Yo-Yo" who CLAIMED to be a Harley Mechanic. And while she had all her parts (sorta) and ran good, had serious oil leak (add Oil every 50 miles). Since My plan is to Retire to the Bike and Road ... I knew I was up to the challenge of getting her fixed up and learning the interior workings of a Harley at the same time. I have been riding for over thirty years and while I knew all the basic info, I figured it could not possibly hurt to know how to handle my own small repairs and maintanence. END OF JUNE: Update ... Bike is still in pieces in garage but tanks and fenders are being stripped this weekend and motor getting put back together this week. I will miss riding this summer but hopefully can meet a guy who wants a backseat for the summer and still get in the wind a bit. Awaiting surgery on hands to correct years of damage and carpel tunnel and by next summer ... clear the roads!! DIVA will be up and running!!

wow babe, you have your hands full, I am lucky to have a retired mechanic/body man for a friend. Anytime somethings not right, and I cant fix it, I take it to him. Good luck,

The adventure continues!! Half the tank bolts missing ... the "Yo Yo" was fair about it though ... half that hold the tanks to the frame and half that hold the tanks together! And then there was the zip ties and PCV pipe cutouts that were holding up the bracket under the dash for the speedometer and lights. And exactly why did he weld the oil tank drain spigot shut??? Drywall screws holding on the ignition cover?? Oh Please! It Truely IS an ADVENTURE!!
