You wouldn't be on the Indian list would you Jim?

We had the exact same discussion and consensus.

I also like "fixin it up"! Given both my bike (41 Indian) and auto (79  
Midg) are intended to be ridden/driven often and rather abusively  
(like I stole 'em may be appropriate) I might add, doing what it takes  
to make certain they stop and go as I expect is essential - often  
after a sacrifice to the 'concours original' gods. Then there /is/ the  
money factor....
