where are the project bikes?

I went to my second "motorcycle" swap meet today. There were a grand total of two vintage Japanese motorcycles present. One was not for sale, and the other did not have disc brakes. There were a few vintage Triumph and BSA bikes, but they were thousands of dollars, not hundreds of dollars. Where in Central Florida do I have to go for a decent selection affordable project bikes?

When I went to Barber this year, there was a tasty basket case BSA I almost bought. I couldn't buy it because I couldn't fly home with it.

Shock and titillate me! I've got money!

I thought it was because you didn't want to move the blow up girl out from under the bed to make room.

HAP, get onto your writer and tell him (possibly her) that your audience is growing tired of the same old jokes.

Hey HAP, you can write piss if you want. No money required.

Thank you for translating into my tongue and not just saying "pissed" - 'cause I am not drunk. Nor I am not pissed off. I just want to be taunted to a new tune. I like your knocks, they're just a bit bogged down at the moment with baldness, being upside down, KTM's and blow up dolls hidden under Lefty's bed adjacent to his poxy Latin single.

Suggestions for new material. Hmmmm - difficult, things are pretty good for me at present. Never mind return to status quo.
