Boy Troy, what a great find you made in your garage. Didn't you just move all that stuff a couple years ago?

We did Brian, but keep in mind one thing. I was in the house looking out being supported by crutches. The attic in my garage is a mess, as the help that day just put things where ever they could find room, so I really need to find some time to just go up there and sort through things.

the more you dig into it, it looks like a early Christmas present or birthday present you forgot to unwrap

Troy, you're a lucky guy if you find those treasures - but, who digged them in your garage, an elf?

 

Doesn't matter - congrats!

Yes, I remember that now. Yes, you better go thru everything. you may have a prototype 110rf up there and don't even know it. :poke:

 

Just picking on you, I do hope you find interesting parts and pieces up there........... Good Luck :smilewink:

Isn't it great to find things like that, that you don't remember. It seems about every year my dad still finds things that he says are mine and I don't remember them.

 I was up in my attic and all I found was old newspaper that was used for [insulation] Gee's that sure would be nice to find treasures like that.

Well, it's Saturday again, and I'm working on a 1967 110 that I just got, so while up in the attic looking for a generator belt, I came across three boxes. Here is what I found today:

Six sets of headlight kits for the round fenders. Complete with switches, tail lights, and new tail light lenses:

I also found three sets of narrow front rims, two new round fender main wiring harnesses, a 120 main wiring harness, six left and right hand thread tie rod ends, a round fender integral hitch adjustment knob, three new K181 points with condensers, and three new flat fender headlight wiring harnesses. 

 

This is better than playing the Lottery!

Hoarder!

 

I wouldn't call it Hoarding Kenny. I think it's more like that case of "putting things someplace so you don't forget where it's at" syndrome, except it doesn't always work for me. I guess I'm just a little backwards, as I find stuff I don't remember having, but can't seem to find the stuff I know I have. Not exactly sure what to make of it all.   :(

 

Hopefully one of these days, I'll find what I'm looking for.
