Whats wrong with this picture ???
This is my son - on his 1970's Yamaha Enduro that he is restoring - a collector's item. This video clip was taken today - 11/27/08. A few weeks ago this bike would not even run - he has really stripped it down and began to restore it - he got it for less than what he paid for the license plate! When he got it - it was headed for the scrap heap - now it's on its way becoming a collector's item. He knew it had value and could be functional again.
Now, what's wrong with this picture is that white stuff in the background! When he pulled into the driveway to his sisters house this morning the temp was about 25 !! When he left, it had warmed up to about 32! He drove this thing about 12 miles each way !! Fortunately the roads were free of snow and ice!
Now - when Jesus pulled you and I off the scrap heap we had found ourselves on, He began a restoration process that is unbelievable. My dirty old heart sure needed cleaning up, my mind was in a bad state as well. I have seen parts taken off this bike, put into a cleaning solution, soaked (some for several days!) and come out just like new - amazing! Have you got any parts that you need to give to the Master Restorer to clean up - He does an excellent job.
"Lord, please clean me up - I want a total restoration, but is it too much to ask to use me when the weather is nice? What??!! You want to be able to use me at any time ???!! Oh my !! I need to pray some more!"
NOTE: PAPA WILL NOW BE OFF LINE UNTIL TUESDAY DECEMBER 2ND .
