Look who I met a few weeks ago at the park-n-ride lot: Gorgeous, yes?
Lots of news in transportation lately. The Vitch is now mostly brought up to spec. I overlooked the neutral light so this is being done now, as is the reupholstering of the seat. I have been lax.

First up on the list: tire replacement, fuel adjustment, front brake work. When the clutch cable comes… Continue reading Vitch is in the Shop
