  1. Came back clean on the free online vin checking sites, we will see what the DMV says in the next few days.
  2. Great suggestion I got it! Now to check if it's hot:) hope not because I have a guy on each coast wanting this bike in a bad way.
  3. Makes sense, I can always stop the video if I get a clear image of a digit.
  4. I tired that, didn't work for me. I tried play dough and a paper and pencil to no avail. The numbers are there I just cant make it out. I think I need to take off the lower fairing to get a better view.
  5. I found the VIN but I just cant make out the numbers. It seems to be in good shape, so maybe I need to get my eyes checked:) I would love to post it here for all you secret decoder specialist, however I am not sure if thats a good idea.
  6. There is lots of stuff, but again he is a hoarder so he won't get rid of anything hence the reason he bought 14 farms and he's not even a farmer. It's a shame, he has a couple of Porsches from the 70s that are now part of the landscape on one of the farms. His bone yard of "n" series tractors is impressive, ther must be 20 of them just rotting away. Oh, I did find some sheds while I was there also. I didn't look hard, I was pretty lucky I have less than an hour searching for these 3. The one on the left is a pretty good one, should be a dandy next year if he's still around. He hangs out within 20 yds from a barn. That G2 is 10" and pretty thick around the base.
  7. One decent one.
  8. Any why would I turn him in? I never said he stole it, I guess your not very knowledgeable on things that get abandonded on old run down farms within close proximity to metro areas. Especially when he has about 2k acres connected, it's gets a bit tough to police when he is 86 years old.
  9. My father in law has a dozen or so farms near Milwaukee, I was down this weekend snooping around for some sheds and came upon what I think is a fxrd. It was last licensed in 08 and I have no history on it. My wife who is doing a legal title search to see if it's hot, which it maybe if so it will get handed over to the authorities. However my father in law is a hoarder and he think he may have bought it 10 years or so years ago. My question is, is it really a fxrd? If so I guess it's rare because it was only in production for a year because it didn't sell because it's pretty ugly from most Harley enthusiasts. I just just sprayed off 2 inches of barn dust and it doesn't look horrible, however there is a little pitting on some of the chrome. Other than that's, I don't have a key, which is used for the ignition, did the cargo area use the same key? I checked the oil and it's full so I am guessing it isn't blown. The gas tank has gas in it but it doesn't seem rusty which was a surprise. My question is, if we can get a clear title, should I put money into it to get it running or sell it as is. I know that's a loaded question, but just looking for some input.

  11. just be glad it wasn't your camera:)
  12. looks great, did you finish off the interior yet? If so, any pics?
  13. You are both correct, the recovery time may be to long. I think I am going to scrap the whole idea and just go to forced air simply for that reason. THis is a 4 season place and ultimatally My retirement place I think in 15 years for at least 9 months out of the year. . WE do currently keep it set to 50 during the colder months when we aren't there and plan on doing that again when this place is completed.
  14. You don't in a camp or a sauna, at least the ones I've been in. It's either HOT or NOT:)
  15. These are pretty common in saunas and newer camps in the UP. Any wood stove would need to run add a water jacket and glycol for the liquid and you are golden. I built my camp 10 years ago, I wish I would have done it but but I was too cheap at the time.
