Hamville is a state of mind.


(Doing this solo with my gimp back/neck may not have been my best decision.)

your back and neck might be grumpy but imagine how bad it would be if I didn't shame you into getting a lift!

(I'll see myself out)

TY. She's a looker for sure. Temperamental like a showgirl... but easy on the eyes all day.

This is true. I ate Tylenol like pez after doing that yesterday. I'd probably be in traction without that lift. Fact... the lift will allow me to continue tinkering on these machines and without it I would be pretty much done on major engine work. Like Scott said, saved me on so many levels. And while I will miss the days of using a beer cooler as an engine stand...I will also not miss the days of using a beer cooler as an engine stand.

I think I'm about to be forced to join Team Lift. I've somehow managed to jack up my back during the smallie motor build and am now eating Alleve like M&M's just to get through the day.

It's a beauty from every angle, will be even more winsome when it's all buttoned up with that honkin SS/GS airbox on there. You've done a spectacular job Jeff, hang in the ham is in sight.

I think I'm joining team lift this winter. None of my joints can take another year of crouching down. Getting old is dumb.

The only thing it's got going for it is that it's better than the available alternatives.
