June 2019 Bike of the Month
« on: June 07, 2019, 08:54:57 PM »
I really enjoy it when I can actually see a bike in person before it becomes BOTM. To be able to walk around and notice the detail of what the owner did to bring it to this condition is a privilege, as is the opportunity to talk with them about their bike. The talk never wanders to how much they think they can get for it, because the conversation is about how long and hard it was to collect the parts needed and the hours needed to put the bike on the road in this condition. This bike could be sitting in a museum, its that striking, but the owner rode it to SGT. I tip my hat to him and every true V4 enthusiast whom I have met over the years.

So, I guess Malm is now picking BOTM  :lol: I'll have to have a word with him, but its tough to disagree with his call.

Congratulations EV, your 84 V65 Magna, in museum quality finish, is now June 2019's BOTM.
