    That is the exact stove my parents used for about 10 years when I was growing up. It was "state of the art" back then.

    It would drive us right out of the house.

    I installed one of those in the swing out extension of a mobil home back in 1980. Wonderful old stove. Here's me when I was 25 (57 now). Classic "Boog" photo!

    I can't believe what you're sitting on man, check my "fast motorcycle" out when I was 20, recognize it (an extended front forks 500)

    Its a 1969, with I think it was 8" extended front tubes. I'm 6'3", it gave it a nice high feel down the road, but definitly gave up some on handling above "legal" speeds.

    I forgot about the split wood in the background of that old photo at my parents home on Grand Island, NY. Proof I've been working wood and swinging that old Sotz monster maul since I was in my teens!

    Awesome! I can't imagine what it handled like with the front fork extended... that bike had more motor than tires and suspension.. and we're both lucky we're not dead from riding them.

    Stay warm. 25' here tonight with some wild wind.
