New To This Great Sit

Post by Chief Ben » Thu Jul 18, 2013 2:44 pm

Hi to everyone, I'm from Hot Springs, Arkansas. I started building V.W. Trikes in San Diego, Ca. in 1973 wile in the U.S. Navy,
And built my first one on the Navy Base at 32 St. in the welding shop at DATC.
I can not count the V.W's I have Built, And the ones I have worked on for friends is unknowen,
But in 2003 I found a 1984 Goldwing that had been in a bad wreck with 29,000 miles on it for $ 1,000 Bucks,
And I Built my first Goldwing Trike Frame and All I wanted it to look a little like a Harley But with a Goldwing Engine,
And It worked out Great And Had the looks I wanted,
This Looks Like the Wab Site I have been Looking For, Thanks For Letting mr join, Thanks The Old Chief..

Welcome to the site. That's a great conversation starter you built.
