OK, Mother NAture has determined to make me life **** this year. First my cancer comes back and I'm back in Chemo for a 3rd time. But I can handle it.

January 7th they diagnosed my wife of many years with Intra Vascular Lymphoma. Rare, and very aggressive, and I lost her February 17.

So I quit. I have a barn with literally hundreds of parts, from a 1985 Honda VF1000R in a 97 VFR frame to gas tank to gauges, radiators, seats, etc, etc.
I even have a complete Tyga RC211V tail in fiberglass with seat, new, never mounted.

In all, $$$ in parts.

NO, I am not going to go root around for that 1 part. Package deal, come get it all for $100.

I am in North Texas. Email me and come get them. Bring a truck, and a friend. Next to go is a house full of furniture after my 2 daughters get what they want. Come June I drive way from this place and these memories.

OMG I am so so sorry for your loss and the rocks being tossed at your life.
Hang in there buddy ...

If you are in no hurry for a pick up of the parts, I'll take them.
I can come get them early next week.

Very sorry Larry. I have so many friends right now that are all struggling with cancer. I've lost too many to it in recent years, but there are some that have beat it! We will add you to our list of TWT folks we pray for every night with the kids.

I'm sorry to hear about your cancer and your wife

I cannot imagine how tough that must be.

Letting everything go has to stink

Wow man, that's some difficult times to be sure. I'm sorry for what you are going through, and will pray that when you drive away from these memories, that you are able to make happy ones in the future.

No bikes. Dr does not like pressure on that part if me do to prostrate cancer.

Sold my beloved 93 vfr 2 years ago.

But thanks.

Sometimes none of this makes any sense. We all feel deeply for you and are here for you as a community of brothers and sisters who all have something in common through thick and thin. Take care brother and know we’re all thinking of you and on your side in this mess. And mitchntx is a bad *** who will treat you right.

We sorrow with your loss of your wife . I know you miss her terribly. Larry I can tell you are tough and know how to endure as I have when I lost my first wife. We just keep on keeping on in this life through God's amazing grace. Your joy will return and you will heal spiritually and physically. You have not quit you are resting in the Lord.

"Then some day all of us will be at home together in the "land where tears have ceased ." Rev. 21:4 NASB and quote from book On My Worst Day by John Lynch.

OK, thanks for all the well wishes. Seems Mother Nature was listening, and back in the hospital I went. Severe respiratory infection due to chemo destruction of my white blood cell count. 3 days of antibiotics and blood built me back up. Still coughing up massive amounts of fluids. Scheduled for surgery Monday for kidney tube replacement. To many projects to roll over. Sorry. I'm gonna live to 100.

AND, the first taker has backed out. Almost cannot give away $$$ in parts.

SO, IF you'll venture to North Texas (between Sherman and Paris), and want all kind of sport bike parts, for just $100, contact me and come get them. I'll need a couple of days warning. And we might want to let the weather dry out a little, for ease of access.
