HH got the Laverda all working and pretty and put together. He has a bench seat, too, which isn't as nice, but he says he'll put it on and he take me for a ride after he does some more tweeking. His test drive was 50 miles, and he wasn't satisfied, though he said it was great. He's ordered a few more parts and grumbled about how he should have done this and that the first time.
I'm pretty excited because he's talking about maybe getting a fun little car, like our old Metropolitan (which was built on a big-eye Sprite chassis), only different, but which he sold. I've been saying how I miss it, and was surprised and delighted just to hear him talking about getting something similar. I'm open to suggestions, but whatever he finds will probably become It. If I'm lucky. I find things, too. I found the Metropolitan and the Avanti that we we used to have. Can't hang on to cars like we can motorcycles, because cars take up so much room!
