Yep, that was the last of the Bob Jones parts bikes. I still got a good chunk of that stuff laying around my garage.

That's cowboybob998 walking through the picture.

There are 6 11's on that converted boat trailer. Yes, it is bowed in the middle.

That was back in 2011? I think. Those were the last of Bobs parts bikes Karla had. She said they were going to go to the scrap yard if no one came and got them. With the help of a few friends I got enough money together to go get them and saved them from the grim reaper.

The engine from one of those bikes on that trailer is in my SG right now. It is out of an F in the middle there. I have 8 parts engines on the floor in my garage still. If anyone wants a titleless frame to build an engine stand or whatever out of, I have 4 or 5 bare frames out back of my garage. Come get it.

Bob, you can jump on in here anywhere. I didn't mean to take over your thread but I did it rather efficiently. Didn't I?

This is what my garage looked like right after I unloaded them. The fram in the middle is an SH frame RockinD and I used to rebuild his bike with a bent frame. (it's an SG frame now)
