Nice bike- I really like it, Hanzo got into riding motorcycles from his uncle!

7-2-21 Rode to have lunch with Hanzo, he fixed up the Magna and rode it...

58115


After lunch we rode to the beach and back. Hanzo looks good riding on that bike.

In a week we will be working on the Street Triple, he says I should keep it as a replacement for my SV.

We will see about that! :D

Fixing the turn signals on the Street Triple, 7/32" tubing and Gorilla Glue Epoxy will keep it together!

58253


Thought clamps would work but ended up keeping parts together with 200 mph duct tape! :D

The right front turn signal is still intact so you know the saying, "If it ain't broke don't fix it" (y)

Rode to see Johnny, a friend of my favorite cousin Steve who recently passed on.

Johnny rode Harleys with Steve back in the 70's while I was going to college.

Got to reunite with Johnny at Steve's funeral.

Johnny took a time-out from riding when he raised his 2 kids, now that the kids are grown-up he ran across a bike and could not pass it up!

So he just got back from a ride to Reno! Good times ahead for us to go out for a ride.

The original seat on this bike was like a pad sitting on the bike, so lost it when taking it home.
