Back in the day there was a rumour going round that there were military suplus Harley Davidson motorcycles to be had. I dis-remember the exact details, but I do remember a group of us Air Force types were to pool our money to get one, or several in a lot, or something.
Anyway, it never happened. The book The Vanishing Hitchhiker, by Jan Harold Brunvand, mentions this urban legend.
Well, I'm re-creating the dream on my model railroad by putting one of those motorcycles I was working on in a shipping crate. So far, I've got the crate done, made out of plastic.
This picture is pretty much the same, so don't look at it.
I think the box came out rather well. Now I need to get some guys to stand around looking at it.
I was given this cute little pencil lead box. You may look at it.
The leads would be contained in the wooden tray.

It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...
