Summer Fun awaits !

I've been riding bikes for over 40 years and was also always into building and driving muscle cars. I've had many different muscle cars over the years but took time off from them in the early 2000's. I've had an itch for the last year to get back into it but wanted to go old school hot rod. Found this gem and added it to the bike cave for some summer fun. Looking forward to some biking and cruising this summer.

With the new addition to the garage not sure how much biking you'll do this summer! How about a video of it on the road?

Once I get the new hoses in I'll do a short start and ride video.

Nice ride. And the neighbors probably thought you were a nice quiet guy with a bunch of bikes. I got an older Vette and often thought of putting a hitch mounted bike rack on it. Don't know why, just thought it would look cool to have a bike hanging off the back of a Vette.
