Grabbed this Coca Cola poster dated 1986 on the bottom off marketplace for a retiring coke collector piecing out his stuff. 18”x24” and in pretty good shape!

Pick up some Jeep Autometer gauges. Used Speedo, tach, fuel, volt, water temp, oil pressure. New oil, transfer case, axle, transmission gauges. Got them for pennies on the dollar versus what they would be all new from Autometers website(96% off new price). I picked up a new set of Autometer Phantom gauges cheap 20 some years ago, might sell those(still new in packages) and use these instead. Not so sure transfer case, axle temp would be needed since I won't be bombing 100mph across a desert. They will go in my DD Fab dash I picked up 2 years ago after the 1st and 2nd owners never installed it. Gonna need a different panel to install more small gauges and put the radio in my Tuffy console.

First turbines, a warn float kit, and now mag slots. Man, you need to share some of that great luck you are having.

I keep looking for a single 15x7 turbine, but keep stumbling on other stuff. Wish I had a J20 to put these on. They are actually 16.5" x 8.25"

Found a 1971 Huffy Cheater Slick “muscle bike” for $20 at a barn sale Saturday. Need to stop at a bike shop this week that says they have the correct rear slick tire for it. Found the correct paint front fender on eBay already. Gonna take it camping with us to bomb around on. ?

Had a bike that looked almost just like that back in 69 that was blue. No slick, we lived out in the country on a gravel road.

That’s too cool! I remember when I was a kid in the late 60’s I got one of the Schwinn Apple Krate bikes. Bright red and with a rear slick and a tiny front tire. Boy, I thought I was the coolest!

Just googled the S AKB I never knew what those were called. Think my dad built mine from frame up. Painted old frame and added banana seat and handle bars. We really did think we were cool back then.

Picked up a 1992/93(not sure)John Deere F725 witha 54" cut. Drove by it then thought maybe it's cheap, turned around, checked it out went home. Went back 2 hours later and bought it. Was the seller's father who bought it new. 1179hours(43 per year average). Just bought a 2003 LX266 for $500 last month which was a steal. The F725 moves fast compared to a riding mower. I was amazed how fast I cut my yard, the 54" and super tight turning rear steer helped. It's real bigger than I need, actually bought it to flip(like my CJ7 last summer that I still have).

That F725 have a Kawasaki engine on it? Those old Kawasaki powered Deere's ran forever. I'm still using my grandparents 1985 112L to mow. Bought another one just like it for $125 a few months ago. Had to put front tires and a muffler on it. Runs like a top still. Was planning on using the new ones for parts, but it actually runs better than my original 112L. I also had an old GX75 rear engine (Kawasaki 9HP) mower that someone gave me. It too ran forever. I sold it when I got the second 112L.
