Wow! The memories of me and my grandfather (who taught me how to wrench ) came flooding back.
This is an awesome story dude. You are so lucky to keep it going still today.
And awesome dad too!
Keep us posted. I will be looking.

Thanks for all the great replies guys. Hehe my daughter got mad that i wouldnt let her take more stuff apart last night. (I showed her how a socket goes on and how it works. She was having a blast!)

I went to z„tůzone and got some metal polishing compound and some wadding polish, and some orange cleaner.

Im going to home depot later to go get a dremel cuz i dont feel like hearing my air compressor kick on all day. (Well atleast until the super bowl!)

Ill post some pics later.

Quite the legacy you guys have going on over there! Sounds like it's going to pass through your daughter next! You know we're all jealous of you getting to experience this, many of us entered moto through our own means and possibly without emotional support of those that love us. I'm glad for you to have this story, thank you for sharing it with us!
