I visited the museum Mother’s Day in 2017, where their I talked with two members in the shop and showed them photos of my 1959 unrestored Harley-Davidson Sportster Old School Chopper. They recommended I bring the Harley to your Feb 24th
show. As I am nearly 75yrs old with a “glass spine” from a snowmobile accident, my Chopper is no more than a glorified noisemaker–straight pipes and all, of a bygone era. It is housed in a bike trailer and I love to show it off. Though nearly six decades old the sound of that motor still sends my mid 70’s wife into “heat”.
More than likely the vibrating saddle that does that
Feb. 24 and 25 are a Sunday and a Monday . Should it be the 23rd and 24th?
