Subject:    Stolen P-40! 

   Actually I just stole the paint job.  I know it's not entirely accurate but   since I got a little input from your site (and others) I thought I would show  you the (almost) final results.  I got the donor bike for free, built a   frame, made the wiring harness grafted about three bikes together and   basically got batty with a welder and a pile of spray paint.  Whadya think?   Plus I only have about 600 bucks total into it, including the bike.   Thanks for your input,   Eric Yurk.

I took this picture at the Champlin Fighter Museum and I was super impressed with the museum.  I not only loved the planes, I loved the artwork section just as much.  After first arriving, when I approached the museum from the outside I thought, "Do you really mean that I am actually going to pay to get in this place"  But when I got inside, I realized that it would have been a bargain at even three times the .  It was a great airplane museum.  C.
