Bugsy II better not take me that long to finish. Gerard receives my Dual Master today for resleeving and conversion to 3/4" in Brass, Wishbones arrived at Apple Hydraulics to be rebushed on Wednesday, ship be back next Wednesday, box of seals, springs, for pedal box from VB came yesterday along with MOSS Brake, Clutch, and Suspension Sale Flyer. Time to order brake hoses, rotors, rear wheel cylinders for conversion to Disk Brakes, and Major Suspension Kit to go with the refurbished Wishbones. Sale comes at the right time as I am concentrating on those sub assemblies right now. Being able to stop and turn are always a major concern. Now to figure out $ in the Budget for a set of Peter C's best shocks and get the 5 Speed Adapter Kit on order from Gerard. Body work starts in earnest in next 10 days. My angle grinder and flapper wheel is anxious to get started. Vacation this weekend, M & T at the cottage. Got a new garage door installed on Wednesday, Hardtop went down to get stored in the rafters so it is out of the way and won't get damaged in my single car garage at home. Progress ever onward.

I like their summer sales too. Whenever i call I always ask when the next sale is. usually they give me the heads up so I can order when the discounts come in! I just got the insurance card for "The Midge". I am so excited to put it back on the road!
