This guy really wants an Electra Glide....
Found this on my local Craigslist. Not sure what to make of it.

If you had the winds in the winter that we have here in the CO Front Range, you'd know why you couldn't pay me enough to ride something that effectively has a rigid spinnaker mounted to the front.:eek:

What's funnier is that it is usually listed for $1000.

It looks like he knew what he wanted make of it!!! That is pretty impressive.

That seat gives him some nice leg extension I'll bet. properly set up. The windshield is there for cutting down wind in is face as much as aerodynamics.

And I'm sure he couldn't afford a Hopalong Cassidy, so this is a good substitute :D

About 30 years ago a guy came into the shop for something and he had a similar setup that was much nicer than the one pictured. I regret not having a camera on me, as for so much during those years. This guy's bike had hardshell panniers, a type of batwing fairing with windshield, and custom paint that was really nicely done; sort of a pearlescent cream with contrasting pinstriping and highlights. Big ticket and not my style at all but, as I said, very nicely turned out.

wheel building has always been my achilles heel. i needed a 24" wheel built with a drum brake hub i have to have rear brakes and gears but never got it built. i painted this and found a few more parts, but it's sat in the space above my garage for years. i'll get back to it someday.
