old things



Old broad in an old sweatshirt, old jeans and these booties, sitting on this old 1948 Harley that Alex built/restored himself.

    2. Yes old Harley's really do it for me but I've never ridden on a vintage one. I don't really know much about them apart from the heads, pan, shovel, knuckle etc. By the way you look anything but old.

  6. I would say you look more like a spring chicken than an old broad. You inspire me continually.

  15. Cool photo! And we don't say "old", we say "vintage". You know...like a fine vintage wine. Or, that an awesome vintage HOG you're sitting upon. :) You're one hot Mama!

  16. What a cool photo...an old broad??? I don't think so!!! My brother-in-law took my aunt for a short ride on his Harley for her 90th birthday. Too cute.

    Love the quote by Karl. So true.

  20. Haha you and Karl are so right. Me? I've been a 70 year old woman since I was about ten. Think Bunny MacDougal. But please tell me neither you nor your son actually ride it! He did such a beautiful job. Well enough that he can sell it and buy a nice safe convertible and still feel the wind in his hair :) of course that probably wouldn't work. I know bike people are devoted to their bikes.
