Last Sunday, the day after our long ride to Grand Rapids, Troy texted us that he would not be riding today because he scorched his face with sunburn the previous day. Tony and I were also pretty beat up but did not want to punk out and just stay home. We decided to go to Jordie's Trail Side cafe in Bowlus http://www.jordiestrailside.com/ for lunch and decide where to go from there. It was the perfect opportunity to take my old '74 out for an easy Sunday ride.
So Tony and I were in my garage talking about where to go and I said "I should take my old Ironhead out today." Then I realized I would have to move a lawn chair to gain access to the bike and said "fuck that I'm riding my hot rod." I decided right then and there that it was time to sell the bike. I listed it on craigslist the next day. The money from the sale is going to fund finishing my chopper. Riding with Tony and Troy on their choppers has lit a fire under me to get mine completed.
I got a couple calls even had a guy come check the bike out this morning but still no sale. I was down to Mom n Rogers today for family photos and dinner. I was talking about selling the bike. My step dad said for $2200 he might as well park it in his barn and wrote me a check on the spot. I'm going to deliver it to him tomorrow night after work. It's nice to have it sold, but even nicer to sell it to him because I know he will take good care of it.
