Annie was going to order the parts on Monday (yesterday) and thought they'd be in today. As I figure, the Silvio should be ready in the very near future. I am trying to take this one step at a time and see how it works for me. My usual M.O. is ... let's hurry up! Corralling that energy is not easy for me.
My goal is to become proficient on this bike so that I can tour with it. The 10,000 mile tour that I am in the early stages of planning...this is the bike I'll use. I know that I have a big learning curve here but I will take the time to get past that curve and have fun doing it.
The sad part to all this is taking the components off my trusty steeds and, if all goes well, selling these frames and other components/accessories/parts on eBay. These bikes have been a part of my life for about 25yrs and they fit like comfortable shoes. Hard to walk away from them, but I want to send them on to someone who will continue to use them and enjoy them long into the future. They have lots of miles left in them.
Photos and videos soon... For now, another tune, Marshall Tucker Desert Sky:
