search cl entire state i came across this one in a remote town near Erie pa and envisioned an oldschool low, long and loud machine that i can ride the ol'lady on and hopefully stay outta trouble.
First step was to get some cash:
Shine up the deer slayer and post it on cl. Within an hour i had two offers and a guy commin out to look at it. As i was waiting for the one guy to look at at i get a call and another guy will pay me right now what im asking ..... Done. Pack up extra parts and chat for a few and shes gone!
Second step was to get the roadie home:
After a lot of looking around from borrowing a truck to riding it back i found that UHaul rents open motorcycle trailers for $14 a day. Holy shit that's cheap and away we go with Benny riding shotgun.
Third issue was to find a notary in pa:
As i soon found out the state of pa requires that the title gets notarized so the original owner says theres a boat place "up the street" that can do it and they will be there for a little while. Benny and i pack in this guys beat ass Focus and soon find out he needs a wheel bearing, struts, tires, and something smells like a kid drank some milk and pucked it up in the back seat! The roads around his place have no lines and have just made the change from dirt to asphalt and felt like it. As we get to the place and walk in we spy a dumps worth of vintage toys and parts. A little "Hello anyone home" and nothing so we walk to the back shop to find a hobbit of a man and a bunch of cool shit in the shop. first thing that stood out was a fairlane close to mint and an old ford convertible from the 30's. The guy turned out to be cool as hell and hooked me up so back to the house and back on the road with Roadie on the trailer.
