After Dad passed away in October I inherited the old race bike. I finally had a chance to go down to Beaumont to pick it up along with some other stuff. Still runs good although it needs to be rejetted for the altitude and the tires need to be replaced.

That's cool Gregg. It's great that you now have something that meant very much to both of you.

Yes it is. The oil temp generally runs around 200F when good and warm.

Nice...
What are you gonna do with it. It would be fun to show it at the Fall Classic or other vintage bike shows. Have you ridden it? What's it like?
I know, lots of questions, but I think its super cool!!:thumbsup:
