    She'll never notice, right?

    Not going to keep it though. I met an absentee landowner from Illinois and he noticed my TW and said he had one, but it was having issues. I went to look at it and it was in pieces, and the wiring harness had all the electrical tape removed. His son crashed it and then couldn't get it started, so they *guessed* it was an electrical short because when they unplugged the headlight, the bike would make solenoid noises. I went home, got my bike carrier, loaded it up, took it home, and had it running in under an hour. Culprit? Battery, duh... It had been replaced with lower capacity AGM battery and in trying to start it after the crash (probably flooded) killed the battery in short order. Still, it will be fun to see the look on my wife's face..."I can explain, but I'm not going to!"

    Nice score, what'd you have to give for it?

    It's always nice to have an extra buddy bike or parts bike around.

    Besides, the two blue and white ones look pretty similar. Just don't ever line the 3 of them up together again and your wife may never even notice that you picked up the third bike !
