    Old gasser? Found in overgrowth, what ya think?

    Hey "Gents", Came across this in the weeds. Seems to have been left and ignored for quite some time. Was wondering if anyone had a word or two to share with me about a possible purchase. I have yet to "look" at it, don't know what they will ask for it. Was wondering if it would be worth the...

    Was told to get "back-up" lights, so,,,,,,

    Hey there everyone! I was told by an "inspector" I needed back-up lights on the Raven Deuce! UGH! I don't agree, and I don't think the law does either, but I am one that will not be "right" and be wrong for inspection purposes. (easier to put on lights, and stifle the inspector that way! LOL) I...
