"So we come up with a price: $12,500, delivered. I didn't have the money, and almost passed, but I ended up borrowing it. A week or two later, eight pallets show up at my buddy's machine shop. I see this and think, "Holy shit! There are wheels and engines and frames and titanium engine parts, a little of everything. So I call Uchida and say, 'Well, the eagle has landed,' and he says, 'Nope, another eight pallets just left here.' Whoa! I ended up with mountains of stuff: boxes with 'Spencer forks' written on them, HRC engines, radiators... It was crazy; a gift, really. And to think I almost passed on it!"
