Re: 1979 S&S Newport 26

thanks. I was planning on putting my nos black panaracers which are now on it for riding purposes then i saw the snake belly's pop up on CL so i had to get them but i think i am liking the panaracers more so i may off the snake belly's for the right amount of jack or just put them on when i show it.

Pretty sure this bike is hanging from the ceiling of College Cyclery in Sacramento.  It's perfect from every angle.  Damn nice--gave me a high bar for my S&S build!

JOKE;A GUY WALKS INTO THE BAR AND ORDERS 3 DOUBLE SHOTS OF TEQUILIA. AS SOON AS THE BARTENDER POURS THE SHOTS THE GUY INSTANTLY SLAMS THEM DOWN. THE BARTENDER SAYS"YOU SURE DRANK THOSE QUICK BUDDY" AND THE GUY SAYS"YOU WOULD TO IF YOU HAD WHAT I HAVE" THE BARTENDER TAKES A FEW STEPS BACKWARDS AND SAYS  "WHAT DO YOU HAVE?" AND THE GUY SAYS"A BUCK FIFTY"  PICK UP LINE: I MAY NOT BE THE BEST LOOKING GUY IN THIS BAR BUT I AM THE ONLY ONE TALKING TO YOU.
