Met with my painters again Friday night, all is going very well and I liked some of their ideas over mine but then we eventually went mostly back to mine with a few twists.  Either way, it should be done tomorrow and I can't wait!  I have gotten some extremely good feedback from some of my friends on the web site.  Yesterday went pretty good for me.  I usually don't do ANYTHING on my Anniversary but I had to take Niki to her basketball game (the won their 4th in a row), then out to lunch to celebrate.  It's been 37 years since I was nearly killed and I lost my dear brothers on Jan 28th 1969.  I don't even go to work on that day!  I quite a few reminders from my friends which made me feel good.  Mike (Mouse) McGhie and I were saved by the same medevac along with five more of our brothers.  That's kind of a special bond between myself, Mike and Doc (Art) MCGary and my squad leader Jerry White.  But the downside is the two friends that I lost that day.  I had them placed on the "Virtual Wall" as a tribute to them.  I still keep in touch with Warren's family.  Then five days after that, two more of my friends were killed.  I have their names tattooed on my arm!  Now do you see how deep my emotions run?  I remember them along with all the family that I lost at an early age, and that's most of them.  I'm almost done with my Vendors and Friends info but I'm still house hunting and it's still a bitch to do.  Take care, Brother Nick

 I just got back from the painters and here are a few more photos.  I think these will download a bit better than the other ones.  We're almost there on the paint but he's still got a lot of sanding to do.  The bike is still in parts mostly but they will be working on it next week.

Oh!  I got some new photos of the bike today.  I stopped down for a few hours today and went over plans for the rest of the build with the guys.  They all love the web site by the way!  Here are a few more photos as the bike stands now.  Everything you see here in this photo is new right down to the chrome braded controls.  The barbed wire looks great on the back of the new mirrors.  The barbed wire looks great wrapped around my control shirt lever.  My buddy has bandaids on all his fingers from twisting three strand barbed wire around the shaft.  It looks good and it's going to chrome along with my chrome collar that I made to go around the outside of my sissy bar.  My friend over at American Cycle Supply wrote to me today and told me the powder coat in the gas cap and screw are done and on the way along with a special surprise of new chrome barbed wire pieces that will go along side my swingarm on the bike frame.  These are a brand new design and I will be the only one in NY to have them.  We're really starting to move along now.  I'll only send you a few photos at a time.  I hope you like what you see.  My wife says there is so much chrome showing that the photos look distorted but with all the black on the fenders and tank it will look great.  This new frontend and wheel and tire have never even hit the garage floor yet!!!
PS Zoom in on the photo number two here and check out barbed wire on the back of the new mirrors!

You're website is being awarded the Gold Award for POW/MIA Awareness.  CONGRATULATIONS!
 
The National POW/MIA Awareness Assn. is more than determinded to help bring out the hushed and little knowlege American's know about what the POW/MIA stands for and represents.  Most small American children think it's two words POW and MIA.  We need to enlighten them.  For far too many years our P.O.W/M.I.A.s have been merely whispered about.  Yet we have dared to use the slogan 'NEVER FOGOTTEN'.  True, but by the FEW.  It's time to make that the MASSES.  And to keep the vigils going to bring each and every man and woman home.  Military families need the reassurance that we ALL stand together in that PROMISE.
 
You're site helps to fulfill either a part of that ideal, if not the entire ideal.  The Nation POW/MIA Awareness Assn. has decided to award you and your site their Gold Award for it.  I hope you'll accept it with honor as it is so proudly and distinguishly given.  It is also I hope to continue to build POW/MIA chapters throughout each and every state.  Joining is FREE.
