Love the sidecar, Willem!

John got the painting done on the project bike once the weather finally cooperated. We polished and shined up the tank and sides yesterday.
Should be on the road this week

Willem, it's an unofficial workaround that's left over from Google Picasa after they switched to Google Photos.
It's not supported so it may or may not go away at any time and break the links.


Photos Resources‎ | ‎Photos & Picasa FAQ‎ | ‎Google Photos‎ | ‎How to‎ | ‎How to get a direct link to an image (of a specific size)



Microsoft did pretty much the same thing with their Skydrive/Onedrive when they broke existing image links, then removed the ability to get a right-click image link from the page.
They also changed the site so direct links wouldn't work even if you managed to find it.

At this exact moment in time, the image embedding, sizing, and sharing option is semi-unbork'd but that could change the next time some engineer gets a better idea.

This image from Onedrive required me to create two separate links.
The </> Embed option created a link that I set to 600 x 400 to use with the site's [I M G] tags.
The [/^ Share option made a clickable link for the [U R L] tags that will open a larger image in Onedrive instead opening of a file download prompt.

JeffH's '78E and Bonz's pristine '80SG that he allowed me to ride for the 2016 Colorado rally


Yes, it works but what a pain in the posterior.

The paint has a blue pearl in it. It's Black under normal light but when the sun hits it, it explodes with blue metal flakes.
I couldn't be happier. It's like the 81 Special paint but more metallic

Maybe a sidecar wouldn't be a bad idea.

base color. It's a Ruby Red. Ford's recent Ruby Red. Planning on an Ivory front side half, similar to the silver & black original tank.

Yeah it's a pretty blue, but just because you're old is no excuse to buy a bagger. Fortunately I have wrenches.
