Back to Jim's Bike Detail Shop 11-23-09

Sunday, 11-22-09, my daughter Amanda came over to visit and I had just returned from gassing up the Harley and she wanted to go for a ride. We set out for Iowa Park Texas to see my other daughter, Amy, and we stopped at Jim's Bike Detail Shop down on the corner to say hi to Jim. While talking, Jim went and got an extra leather vest for Amanda to borrow & wear for the ride. Today, Monday, 11-23-09, I rode the bike back down to Jim's to return the vest. Scroll down for this short post & REMEMBER: IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE PICTURE BIGGER, JUST CLICK ON THE PICTURE.





This is Jim's Bike Detail Shop 5400 Southwest Parkway Wichita Falls Texas 76310 phone: 940-691-1121 (on the corner of Southwest Parkway & Barnett Rd, across from the stadium). Jim does bike washing & detailing, oil changes, State inspections (Bike & car), bike cable checks and he sells bikes on consignment. If you're in the area and need his expertise, give him a call and hook up with him. He will treat you right...


Here is Jim & Tammy out by my Harley. The vest Jim loaned Amanda, was one of Tammy's. Tammy rides a Harley Screamin' Eagle Softail Custom (I believe) and is also an RN. She was just finishing up lunch & heading back to work.


Jim & Tammy at Jim's Bike Detail Shop in Wichita Falls Texas. Tammy helps Jim out around the shop with some cleaning, scheduling, phone calls & secretarial stuff. They are both great people and I am proud to have them as friends.



This is one of Jim's restoration projects. This is his 1973 Corvette Stingray.



This is the emblem on the hood. Been inside awhile and is dusty. But not to worry. When Jim finishes restoring it, it will be detailed. It looks great now though...




Drivers side





The "Stingray" Emblem on the left front quarter panel






Another view of the Stingray emblem







Been sitting since 1999, as these tags & inspection sticker can attest to..As well as the TSTA sticker..








The back view.









The emblem on the gas cap on the trunk of the Corvette. Jim started it up and it has got to be one of the quietest, smooth running 'Vettes I've heard. Purrs like a kitten... When he is done restoring it, he is thinking about selling it at a price which I found to be, unbelievably low. Something in the vicinity of 8 grand. If you are interested or have a question about the Corvette, call or go down to Jim's and see it & talk to Jim.. He can give ya the history on it.





Some of the bikes Jim was working on, were out front. This is an 04 Harley Fat Boy. Jim said the owner was going to trailer it to Florida, when Jim finished with it, along with an 07 Harley Ultra..




This is the 07 Harley Ultra Classic that was going to Florida with the Fat Boy. Jim says this bike only has 7,800 miles on it.. Jim's got his work cut out for him on this one. The owner lives down a dirt road and this bike was covered in dirt & dust..






This is an 08 Kawasaki crotch rocket that Jim is selling on consignment. It sure is a clean bike..





This is Jim's 07 Harley Road Glide. A great looking and running bike. I have been on several rides with Jim and his Harley is a strong running bike.








This is Jim's 1988 Shovelhead. It used to be a police bike and Jim has it for sale also.. Call Jim for the details on it, the Kawasaki & Corvette. 940-691-1121



My 01 Harley Heritage Softail Classic. I bring it down to Jim's for visitation. Jim was the one who told me about it and sold it to me. I love this bike!!
This will conclude this post. Thank you, Jim & Tammy, for letting Amanda borrow the vest yesterday. Kept the cold off her. Good luck selling the bikes & Vette Jim.. They are gonna go fast, I'm sure.
