A biker rides up next a little girl walking home from school and says, "Hey, little girl, want to go for a ride on my bike ?" She gives him a dirty look and keeps walking. He pulls up along side her again and says, " I'll give you ten bucks if you get on the back of my bike." She looks him straight on and in a loud voice says, NO." As she walks away he offers her twenty bucks and ice cream if she'll just get on the back of his bike. Finally she turns around and says, "Daddy, Mom told you not to buy the Honda, the Harley is a much better bike."
since it's just a model and won't be out on the road, which ever set up gets you the look you're after is probably the way to go. The first 2 would be period correct, the 1/4 eliptics need a panhard bar to keep them from oscillating side to side, not to mention some shocks, it would be like driving a boat, the last pic with the coils , yuck , but that's just me.
Cooking, doing more and more of that, gardening, the fresh veggies are great, I have 2 55 Chevies, one almost done, needs interior completed, the other is ready for assembly and paint, model narrow gauge trains, reading, hoarding, I mean collecting model cars, when the count went over 5000 I quit counting and last of all enjoying the grands. and I wonder why I never seem to get anything done. : )
