Route 66 News (for reals)I crashed the Route 66 IECA organization's Kick-Off Party for the Rancho Cucamonga Service Station restoration project Wednesday and learned a little about their mision.
The Rancho Cucamonga Service Station has been abandoned since the early '70s. It's one of the few Route 66 icons standing in Rancho Cucamonga and has been perilously close to demolition. The Route 66 IECA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose members got the city, public, and the previous property owner behind a plan to restore it.
We'll let them fill you in on the details. There's a ton of great information about the project and local Route 66 opportunities on their site. http://route66ieca.org/home

Community ServiceOur "adopt-a-bike" program has found another orphan. This one's a 1990 Heritage Softail with only 11,430 miles of neglect and random personalization. Nothing too treacherous and a few good things like genuine Twice Pipes, a Mikuni 42, new tires, and no scrapes or dents. The paint looks like crap and it has light corrosion in some metal surfaces.
|The '90 Heritage we're going to rescue. It needs some serious love but it has good bones.|

|Big old windshield and chrome wrap on all cables and wires|
|Mods relax, they're staying.|
