Cleaning out more and more boxes. . . . .found a shipping crate with a couple thousand photos and a case of Buell decals . . . Old timers will remember a couple of these.

Dibs on the case of Buell decals!
Someone had to say it before K12/Chris...
So, out of curiosity, who does the Curious George shirt reside with currently?

Court and the man. Good on you. Man I miss the good old days....

I have the Curious George shirt . . . along with hundreds of "new" old Buell shirts I found.
Do you recall the day all the HD folks came to visit and celebrate as we moved into the 2799 building? They gave out "1,000th Buell Built" shirts . . . found one of those still wrapped in plastic.
Also found a couple of the famed "wheelie" t-shirts that got us in trouble. Remember the shirt that featured Howie doing a mondo wheelie . . all crossed up . . on an S-1?
Somehow I ended up with one of those "Artisan" (Harley commissioned some artist to do something on the order of 50 or 100 Buell Art) shirts . . no clue what it means.
When I was doing the sort . . . hoping to move someday . . last week . . . I figured I'd put the Buell shirts in a shipping contained . . ended up with something like 9 shipping containers.
Also found cases of parts . . including new S2 mirrors and some shocks I had forgotten about. No clue what most this stuff goes to. Some of it . . . like the rotors from Kelsey-Hayes . . were prototypes and we were struggling to dial in a better rotor design in 1997. You can spot the new rotors as the air vent "swoosh" cut falls between drive pins.
Do you remember the way the Curious George shirt went back and forth between Erik and I . . . in some pretty funny ceremonies. . . based on who had most recently trashed a bike?
He had it firmly in his possession following the little "incident" on the Billet Metallic S1 at Pocono Raceway that left him staggering with his bleeding butt featured on ESPN.
But . . the day I kind of lost the M2 on the cliffs of the Angeles National Forrest . . . got the shirt firmly back in my possession. That was the same day of the nasty little encounter with the California Highway Patrol out near Willow Springs.
Those were fun times . . .
We were told "eventually you guys will have to grow up and act your age". Apparently that was not true.
But . . we always have Brankin to blame for our behavior!

Good evening Court,
As someone relatively new to Buell's culture I appreciate the you sharing your tales of the good old days.
I'll be happy to be 2nd in line on the old decals and will happily take any S2 parts off your hands you're interested in parting with.
Thanks again for the Buell history lesson,

I'll take sloppy seconds, & I can pick them up no packing or shipping necessary.
