Howdy folks from Indiana

I'm just a normal joe who thinks that recycling other people's junk (which usually requires fixing it) or re-purposing it is not only fun, but also the best way to aquire more toys. Since he whom dies with the most toys wins ... I want to be at least in the top ten. I still remember the horrible "first road rash" I got when I turned my head to see my father had already let go of the back of my first two-wheeler many yards back! Was summer of my fourth year. Now 42 years and wouldn't trade my bike riding for anything else to stay fit and trim. Don't crash quite so often any more less I try something I know better than. We'll see ya'll in the forums and I hope I can be of some use besides hot air.

Hello fixinmaniac . What kind of recycling and repurposing are we discussing? Would you be a vintage steel fan?

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
