Im sorry my friend but I already own the title of biggest non mechanical rookie on here. just ask anyone!|
I have got loads of advice from several....Mutt, Dave, Duane, Bruce, John;...the list goes on and on! these people love their hummers and they are always willing to share their knowledge.
Nevertheless... DO Not, I repeat DO NOT try to take my rookie title away from me.

I wanted to raise your attention to a very good person who is on here. His name is Bruce McKenzie. I bought a 1951, 125 from a guy in Missouri eight months ago. I am literally the biggest rookie known to man with any sort of restoration and I bought a piece of junk. My extent of motorcycle knowledge was owning a 1982 Honda Nighthawk in college. I guess a midlife crisis kicked in, too many motorcycle shows on tv got me thinking I could do this. Since I am from Illinois I found Bruce on this exchange and contacted him. He immediately was the nicest person and told me to pack up my truck and bring everything to him. I met him in his garage in DeKalb, Illinois and it was like we were old friends. He immediately went through everything and the help began. He was honest with me and I with him. I told Bruce I wanted to learn to put this thing together on my own. He has been a mentor all the way through and has taught me a tremendous amount in the past eight months. I am now in possession of all my parts and am beginning to put together a 1961, 165. I will post pics as I try to be successful. If anything, I wanted to draw attention to Bruce. Use his services, give him a call. He is a great person that would help anyone. Thanks Bruce. I appreciate you!!
