Abilene parade September 10, 2016

Good Evening, Just remind everyone of our annual West Texas Fair Parade in Abilene. Line up next Saturday south of Courthouse at our regular place at 9:30 am for the 10:30 parade start. After the parade we will meet for lunch and hopefully we can find a leader if anyone wants to ride afterward. Thanks, Don Henry

Updates to Website

I have been copying and pasting the newsletter information about the State Meet page on the website. Thanks, Jennifer, for the great newsletter. You have done a great job.

There are paragraphs about schedules, show scooter information, 100 year ride qualifications, and  rv sites/hotel info for you. The ladies will want to read about the Highlander Honey’s Ride and luncheon on Saturday.

The Drawing was a big hit last year. The ladies collected more than enough to pay the tab for repairing the Pull Sled.

The Foster Art classified ad has been removed. Jim Harris has reduced the price of the 2 scooters he has for sale in the classified ads.

Spend a little time and get excited! State Meet Time is HERE.

See you soon.

Spring Creek, San Angelo weekend August 2016

The rides were great and we ate well. 

On Friday morning we started out early on a breakfast ride with 12 scooters. We arrived in Mereta, Tx after 40 miles through the crops and fields of Tom Green county. 


The afternoons were spent trying to get cool and then we would slowly reappear to visit some more. Thursday night
We ate at Catfish Corner with 21 people. Friday we had 28 at Western Skies, and Saturday afternoon we meet with 21 at Freddie’s. 

On Saturday morning the Breakfast Master, Ben Sargent, served sausage and pancakes at the Pavillion. 


The 10 scooters headed to Foster Park and the ladies headed to garage sales. Every one was happy.

Night time visiting was enjoyed by all these wonderful friends.


Thanks to Beverly Ledoux, Margaret Trevino, and Chrysti Love for the pictures.

Safe travels and we’ll see you all again.

James Harris – For sell

PRICE REDUCED: $7400. OBO  (8-22-2016)

For Sale – 1963 Cushman Super Silver Eagle with new 23 hp Briggs and Stratton twin cylinder 20 amp Vanguard engine. Built by a true craftsman who has built numerous Cushman’s for Dennis Carpenter and two CCOA national 1st place winners. Steve Lorenz of Arcadia Cushman, who builds beautiful scooters himself, commented on how well this Cushman was done. It was built retaining the oil filter and oil cooler so the engine operates with all components for which it was designed. All parts are new except the frame, 2 speed transmission, and clutch. The frame was blasted down to bare metal, the transmission has all new bearings, seals, and gaskets, and clutch has new bearings and lining. The clutch has 2 pulley/belt system to prevent slippage and save wear and tear on the transmission from over tightening the belts. Clutch cover has been modified to accommodate the 2 pulleys/belts. The rear fender box is designed to come apart in pieces for ease of maintenance such as changing the transmission sprocket and servicing the chain. It has dual exhausts, Mikuni carb, $300 leather seat, and deuce style windshield. The frame and custom tail panel are painted single stage automotive black, while the rest of the sheet metal is painted with flat black epoxy primer so the new owner can paint their choice of color. It has 12 inch spun aluminum wheels, Michelin radial tires, aluminum front and rear hubs. Titled and licensed in Las Cruces, NM 88011. Call or text Jim Harris 575-642-3109, or email jeharris.nm@hotmail.com. $7900.
