Hey Bear,
Don't say much on here mainly read and learn, but had to jump in here since we are neighbors. I live in Blue Ridge and travel thur Clayton on thursdays with my job. Where is your shop? I'll make a point to stop by when my schedule allows.
I'm into restoring old wheel horse and speedex garden tractors, I'm up to a total of nine in three years. Maybe we can meet soon.
Mark

Hey Guys thanks for welcoming me. Bill I love to listen to those old engines run, Granddads old gardening buddy had one they used to grind sugar cane to make syrup. Had a ball helping work on that thing, can't remember the make. Mark when you come into Clayton from Blueridge and hit new 441,turn left and come north thru Mountain City after you get thru MC start looking to your right and you'll see War Pony Customs that's my shop usually a couple of bikes sitting out front. Larry if you ever need any help with anything let me know, where not next door neighbors but I am rite up the road. Maybe we can get together sometime
