the guy who beat me had nearly $30k into his 56 bug that will be in this months Hot Vw's magazine (pg 61)...
i put $2800 into my car, including the car, a new (used) engine, and a rebuild for it.
on the way home picked up new parts for my first bike.
picked up some ape hangers, a sportster tank, fenders to bob, and a few other miscellaneous bits. next week ill order the exhaust.
i know its just a Rebel 250, but i dont need to compensate for anything, 60mpg+ are always good in my book, i dont need to go over 75mph, and im a small framed guy. no to mention im pretty sure that folks will be responding to the bike the same way they do to the bug. when they hear
about it, they roll their eyes and insult.... but when they see
it, their eyes get wide.
its an 86 with 3200 miles on it and NO rust.
