Toledo, Ohio, is one of those cities you just don’t happen to go to or through unless you deliberately make it a point to head there. Hey, nothing against the lovely city famous for being the home of Jeep and the late Danny Thomas located in the upper-upper Northwest corner of Ohio close to Lake Eerie (Yeah, I know. I just like spelling Lake Erie that way.) But it’s not a tourist destination or a city you pass through on the Interstate unless you’re headed to Detroit and the chances of anybody headed to Detroit for a vacation are sorta slim. Like most industrial rust-belt cities, old Toledo has fallen on some hard times. But, like most industrial rust-belt cities, there are some very skilled, hard working, and talented people still working their butts off every day making real American products like the spiffy little Sporty bobber you’re looking at onscreen.

  Oh no! The world’s turning sideways again and I’m having one of those flashbacks they warned us about except this isn’t one of those remnants of Psilocybin flashbacks, but the real thing. I’m sitting in the back of a study hall doing anything but studying, actually I’m sketching away on yellow arithmetic paper as usual. I’m doing my best to draw a perfect circle followed by two more inside that. Hey, you can’t have a tire without a rim. I always start at the front and work back until I have what I consider the perfect rendition of a late 1960’s chopper as it’s actually the late 1960s.
