    Right or wrong. Well, I dont know......::confused:

    "The highboy was the wardrobe of the eighteenth century. A Lowboy, similar to the lower section of a highboy, is a set of drawers of table-height, also made to store clothing. The lowboy is sometimes confused with a Dresser or Dressing Chest, which was a similar bureau or chest of drawers having open space provided between its two flanking ranges of drawers."

    Don, love that windshield. Did you make it out of aluminum? I'm looking to do the same on mine.

    One question to get one to sit that low in the rear like this 32, is that just a c- notch or do you think the frame is kicked up? The reason I ask is because the gas tank is still out back.
