almost feel bad about a meanilngless post that has nothing in the world to contribute except that if people are keeping tabs on the life of shlepprock.

the wife's (bad) operation actually went good and she is okay. wheeew. but the (great) job doing the boat top for close to $5000 got put on hold cause the guy couldnt pop for the dough. so i am so broke i had to finally take my Indian Scout out of the dining room where it's been on a table all apart for over a year, put it in milk crates and run it down to Seattle's Antique Cycle. that guy has motorcycles from the teens and twenties as well as 50s!!! he is gonna sell it for me on consignment as a basket case. he told me the gears suck inside the tranny, they were all beveled. new ones are available for only $400. then another couple hundred to assemble it. i will see if he will put the bike all together and sell if for $8-10,000 or if not, i will try to get $4000, which i will just break even on it :(
i will really need money to get my camaro out of the shop. it will need all new glass and then i might have to pay to get it installed if the body guy buys it. plus some other unexpected body work it needed in the rockers. maybe wheels/tires if i have enough left over. already paid him $4000 don't forget. i went by the body shop sunday and i looks like he has replaced the rockers. other than that, after 10 weeks not much has been done. dont hav any idea when he'll be done with it. late

Good to hear that your wife's surgery went well. I was wondering about that.
Bad to hear that the job is on hold.

Everything will turn out good in the end....Just remember that.

Glad to here about the wife, Bull, but really sad to here about the Indian. I was really counting on seeing some progress on it. Wish I had the 4 grand I'd take it off your hands. sure there isn't something else you can do instead of selling her?:(

Hey Bull, it's probably a blessing in disguise about the boat job, because it's going to take your wife at least a month to recover fully from her surgery, and the last thing she would need is some idiot bugging her about the job every two days. I'm sure that when he can come up with the cash he will be back, in the meantime, good luck with the finances, I hope it all works out for you.

Chickie.

Bull,

Were with you, wish well for your wife and sorry to hear about the cycle.

Please, don't work on the car yet, wait a couple of days and let the moon gets to the 7th house and Jupiter aligns with Mars.
