Salvaging old vehicles has always been an uncomfortable thing with me. It's the only supply of parts for many and keep others going but each time there's one less of them. Old airplanes, bikes and cars, the ones I love but can't afford becoming few every day is kind of sad. I always covet some of the beautiful restorations I see, I don't have the skills or money to do one of those wonderful museum type restorations like Randakk or others but I sure like seeing them. With luck one or two of these now in the shop will return in decent, but not perfect condition. Not much money in doing this so it's mostly just for the pleasure of accomplishment. I figured out the last bike I sold paid less than a dollar an hour for the work after all the costs were figured in. Oh well, that's better than the five dollars an hour it COST me to restore the old 1946 Commonwealth Skyranger a few years ago.
