strip, polish, rebuild

I have been refurbishing two Cannondales.
One was a wrecked MTBframe and the other was a hybrid
26" wheel road tourer bike.
Stripped, paint stripped, polished and slowly going back together.
Not as good as building choppers and bikes but good fun anyhow.

JJ cover

Back In 2011 I liked this "one of a kind" Jason Jessee Shovelhead Points cover and featured it on this blog.
Today David O'Hanlon sent it to me as a present from the other side of the world.
Chopper people are so cool and generous, like a big family.
Thank You Sir, so stoked.
