    Good job! Someone needs to restore this baby...

    A friend of mine sent me this ebay auction. Sad to say this requires too much skill for me to restore. How cool would it be to haul around your friends at a gathering on this.

    That would be a pretty cool bike to restore. That mustang he has in the background is also pretty nice.

    There are many good bike companies out there, and I work for one of them.

    The seller is dreaming if he thinks he's going to start the bidding on that at $300 and get any buyers. That would be cool to restore, but it's way too far gone with rust to warrant $300 price tag.
    I'd take that Mustang in the backround though, lol.

    I'd have to be purty darned likkered up to let you ride me around in that thing...er, never mind.

    And did you notice that the seller has TWO mustangs? One candy apple red hardtop and another with a white converible top. Now you could ride me around in either of those anytime.

    Oh man, this is creepy. I saw a trike (shorter wheelbae then that pictured) on E-Bay "up here" and i've been eye-balling it. I have NO idea why. Now this? I hope this isn't a sign.

    Put a big electric motor in the back and have fun doing wheelies up and down the street.
    I ..... need ..... DIRT!!!!!

    ... and cookies.

    What are you talking about? The words "likkered up" and "Davis" go hand in hand when there's a gathering.

    Looks like a fun restore for sure but also a bit on the weak side frame wise once you outfit it. I have $1300 into this one I built. Its a blast to ride and awesome on the beach for low tide beach cruizing. The 2.5 hookworms make it go anywhere, eventually will put an electric motor but for now I load up the family and get a workout while they enjoy the scene. Hopefully will take it to sea otter this year.
