Cold Night at the Garage

It's dark. It's cold. It's my garage.

My very first bike, a '75 Yamaha XS650.

My project for the night; install a headlight and remove the front fender of my Uncle's '82 FXR Shovelhead.

So far, so good.

And we're done. Shiny new headlight. I successfully removed the front fender but not without the bike falling off the jack. Yeah, it was pretty frightening. Lucky for me, the kickstand was out and saved it from landing flat on its side and I was able to grab a handlebar, get the jack out of the way and save the bike. Don't tell my uncle.
