Thanks for all you've done for this hobby of ours.  Your knowledge and insights make it more than just playing with toy cars.  HBD, too!!

Just saw this thread, and yes, I missed it.

Thanks to all for wishing me my birthday. I quit counting a few years back because it no longer mattered! 

I have not "abandoned" slot cars, it is just that I have very little time to devote to them right now, but "I'll be back" like Arnold said.

And, ah yes, "The Book". As of last week, our book builder, the talented (but very slow) Larry Crane did let me know that he was down to "two dozen pages".
So let's keep our hopes up that he will be done by early September and we can all read that stuff before Christmas.
PS: No refunds!  :laugh2:

Meanwhile, back to the bikes, just got this one in a trade with a Dutch fellow who made that thing pretty fast, coaxing 20.5 HP from its 3.2 CI engine... :)

Isn't it a pretty little thing? It was built in 1973.

Hope your "B'Day" was great Dokk.

Been busy since our move but will have more time soon....

You still owe me a tour of the LASCM if you remember .... Scott had to cancel the day we were there.

Take care

Hey Barney,
as soon as that C19 disaster is over, no problem. Right now the LASCM is closed and under protection of private security due to its proximity of violent demonstrations hot spots.
