The Cubs won yesterday, 8-3 over Philly. The thing is, they scored 8 runs with NO home runs, just timely hitting and taking advantage of mistakes by the opposition. One hopes this is a sign of how they'll play ball this year. However, life long Cubs fan that I am, I am fully prepared to be disappointed.
I have been trying to sell the Coot Scoot. I have the CB750 in running shape now and I don't think it's necessary to support TWO two wheeled vehicles. I may have to lower my price. $1500 seems to be too much.
The 750, as it turns out by examination of VIN number records, is actually a CB750L - a limited edition 'cycle meant to celebrate the birth of the CB750 Honda 10 years before. The new motor, however, had dual overhead cams - a first in motorcycles - and was faster and more fuel economical than the older model. It had special badges on the side plates indicating its status as "Special Edition" and, of course, the dual cams.
Over time, I hope to be able to restore the bike to its original look. Hopefully, it won't cost a fortune to do that.
The weather finally seems to be leaning in the direction of Warm. There should be no more snow. The birds have come home. Cardinals and Robins abound. The tulips are coming up in my backyard. There is a hint of green, now, in the lawn. Spring may now, finally, have sprung.
And Mother nature may have, finally, redeemed herself.
