I wanted to extend our thanks to everyone who made our visit at this year’s Roundup memorable and fun. And a special thanks to Jesse for inviting me to attend, despite the lack of my own FC. Also, I really appreciated everyone who told me how much they enjoyed reading this website. Your feedback makes my efforts worthwhile!
On Saturday I was able to win a raffle price, 2 headlight gaskets (courtesy of Roy). After winning them, I announced my grand plan to build an FC around the gaskets. Yes, we’ll build from the front of the FC (fc-150? fc-170? something else) to its rear. I expect this is going to be a slooowwww project.
I even found the perfect FC project in Tucson as we drove out of town on Sunday morning; well, drove is a stretch. More like, plodded along due to an overturned semi in Black Canyon whose delivery of vegetables will likely be delayed (though the local rabbits should have some good forage for a while). Unfortunately, Tucson was in the opposite direction from where we were going and I suspect this incredible deal will be gone by the time I could ever make it back down there.
1961 FC-170 $450: (SOLD quickly after I posted it; it was in Tucson). Check out the early hubs on this, too.
So, until our FC is complete, I will just have to enjoy looking at and riding in other people’s FCs. Here’s some random pictures from the event. Thanks again to everyone and I look forward to the FC Get Together in Washington. If you don’t have an FC, find one and join the fun next year!
