Thanks for nice comments, this love story is just getting warmed up.

I'm catchin' up P!

There's an American Legion nearby, so I parked Xena in front of ol' Huey there. Just couple of old workhorses.

Naw , hubby and wife bought a pair in 02 rode for 3 yrs then hubby passed away sadly and riding bikes was something theyd always done together as a couple and the wife couldnt bring herself to ride them without him ever again.

And so the pair sat for 10 years. Quite sad really.

Im workin on 6k right now.

Love my fizzer

Great bike, great rider.
I would add frame sliders "just because if you have them, you won't need them."

Sure looks clean.
