Sent him flying, totalled the bike and effed him up pretty bad. He's a lot better now and walking!

This is our first bike, We picked it up about 2 months ago, It is a 1982 Honda Silverwing Interstate 500 that only had 6,400 original miles on it. It was owned by a 75 year old, and was last ridden in 1995. Stored inside a heated garage all of its life. It still had the ORIGINAL TIRES on it! (they have now been changed)

Paid $1,000.00 for it.

So far this year my wife and I have put about 2000 miles on it and are loving it!

Nothing real fast or fancy but nice cruiser with all of the extras and a perfect first bike for us.

Shes a 1999 Triumph Sprint ST I bought it summer of last year and went from this -

To this -


To this after many hours of rebuilding -


I rebuilt it after hitting a fire hydrant. I layed it down mid corner doing about 75 (front brakes arent a good idea at full lean) I painted it Oh So Sexy Red with my Rubicons Stone White white a Ivory Pearl over top as the accent color. Custom design to kinda look like a Ducati scheme.

I found a mint condition Honda Twinstar sitting behind some old abandoned house, has historical plates and everything on it, just parked behind the house next to a nasty car. I am going to try and track down the owner :)
