    My girls ready to ride!

    Finally finished my project 88 and have it ready for the next 25 years. Hard to believe after all the neglect how great she runs. Both bikes are sitting on new tires and tubes with new sprockets, seals, gaskets and X chains and both have new carbs, batteries and fresh fork and engine oils so I don't have to waste the valuable but short riding season up here. It was a long and expensive project getting the 88 back to road ready and good to go but I am thrilled at how well it came out. The 91 was a garage queen when I got it last year so instead of fixing things I spent my cash on all the farkles.

    You can come out any time you want Mel, there is a Black Widow in my stable you can ride!

    Sweet rides! Really cool seeing you bring that bike back to life with used parts from other members on this great forum. But remember, There is only one "Black widow" and she lives in an 1800's horse stable in Woodland, CA.

    A great looking pair of "girls", Gary. Don't worry that ride has been on my bucket list for quite a while now. What a great time it would be to ride together.

    Thanks to all who helped! Gregor, I am ready to do the dog crate when ever your broke leg is up to the task. Evan, there are lots of Black Widows out here and more pop up every day it seems. Qwerty, don't be sniffing around my girls unless you can ride them hard and put em up wet!

    OK Mel, make the run before our time runs out! We aint getting any younger. Just so you know Joe, that is your plastic and I just listed the not so pretty take offs in the classified along with an almost full set of real nice white that I decided to not use.
