    Greetings from lobstah land!

    Hi folks,

    I'm Tim, I live in Maine and was hatched in eastern Ohio where the first machine I operated was Grampa's 420 while sittin on his lap. I was 5 or 6 then. Didn't know how to feed a clutch in so just dumped it and popped mini wheelies. Can still hear Grampa laughing.

    Its been in my mind for more than a few years to have a 420 like his and if possible to track his down and drag it to my Maine homestead. Still have a lot of family in the Newcomerstown area so who knows.

    I have some noob 420 questions that I'll post in (I hope) the proper area.

    I was just in Bangor a couple of weeks ago, went to Acadia Nat'l Park for a day to see/plan for an extended visit some day in the future. Also visited the Cole Transportation Museum ... very nice.
    Beautiful area that Maine state!

    Welcome.

    It sure is purdy here! Lots of spots remind of where I grew up in Ohio too, only not as hot n humid.

    Family moved north when I was 14 (in 72). I bought a nice little piece of heaven not far from Bangor, a 7 ac fallow hay field where I'm currently working on one of my bucket list items. I'm building a small home with my own hands. I'm pushing 60 and its slow going, but it' be all ours bought n paid for when its done.
