.... rewire the garage to code or restore this old Harley Davidson Motorcycle?


Date: 1978, Joe Tedesco, Route 520, Marlboro, NJ

Just think of the fun to be had!

Stay out of the garage and work on the Harley.

The property taxes on a canvas tarp are much less than a building.

Yup, the garage can be addressed on bad weather days after the motorcycle is up and running. By the way, sometime would be spent finding a transmission and primary.

Sorry to be the only dissenter, but as I have just about zero interest in motorcycles (Harley or otherwise) I'd be rewiring the garage.

Now if that were something like a '58 Plymouth Fury it would be another matter.

A house is always worth more than that rusty piece of greasy junk.

Rewire the garage first.

That way you have a safe place to store your rusty motorcycle.

So Joe,

Where are the pictures of the restored motorcycle?

Since it has be 24 years did you ever get around to the garage?
