    Jim, despite all the obstacles in your way, you still manage to hold on to the dream and get things done.

    You sir, are an inspiration.

    All the best with everything.

    Finishing up the details on the inside , built the first modified engine.
    Nothing happening on the car, too busy household chores, working on a new to me bike hauler, Christmas, and just busy.

    Member in Mas trying to get some of his friends to give a hand, no luck so far.

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year. Thanks for all the help and encouragement.

    Still alive out here in quartine land, staying to myself. Minibike business has kept me sane.
    Hopefully some news on the 28 roadster in a couple of weeks.
    Stay sane, and safe.

    Jim, I'm glad to see you OK. I've called you twice and texted you once, all with no response, and I was getting worried.
    Still wish I could regain my sense of balance and buy one of your hot rods.

    Thanks for the update OFT. The midwest has its weather problems. S/D is the big thing here and mask. Lots of closed business.
    Dave, my phone has been giving me problems, you're not the first that has said that.
    The minis are a handful with these hopped up engs. Several of the younger generation have found that out.

    Jim,
    Good to see you post again. How did the mini bike barn come out??

    Good to see you have a project to work on weather it’s the hot rod or mini bikes. Good on you staying busy.

    Thanks Cliff,
    The barn is quasi finished, another coat of paint on the outside, some minor sheetrock finish on the inside.
    The bikes have overwhelmed me. I have sold 16 combinations of rollers, finished projects, and engines since 1 Feb. A finished bike is going out tomorrow when my wife sitter comes.
    Roadster is being moved next Sunday. Will keep all up to date on this as it happens.
    Hope and pray all is well in the N/E.

    Jim ,
    Things are good up here. Everyone is doing good and no one has been effected. Miss the grandkids and hopefully things will get a little better this summer and we can see them.

    Glad you and Joy are doing well and the Minibikes are giving you some fun. Can’t wait to see the car again.

    Minibike barn was started out of frustration of not being able to move fwd with the roadster project. I thought when I bought the parts I would be able to get things together. I had the 1/4 panel and tailpiece mocked up, but not welded , when there were problems in the house.
    I bought a mini started working on it and almost 20 bikes, ends, and go- carts later a barn.

    Will give a full updated report Sunday night wit appropriate pics.
