Could the quest be over? He is going to look at a '59 Panhead today. This was my gift to him in December but as yet we have been unable to find the ONE. It is fun to watch him already planning what he will do and how he will change it.
He will need to make sure it has come from a good home and be cared for with love. He will want to know the entire history, like that of a baby or a dog he might adopt. I am guessing he thinks it affects the bike as though it has feelings. Granted he has always believed that a car runs better when it is clean and well taken care of too. Perhaps he personifies many things?
So, I am crossing my fingers when he leaves today. Hoping that this guy has proved a worthy owner. Hoping that the myriad of other quests can now be fulfilled and that maybe - just maybe he will relinquish one of the bikes that no longer holds that sparkle in his eye - because frankly - nothing else will fit in that garage.
