well guys
 racepoint is back in busines not from germany but still in the netherlands in our old house

we had some big problems with selling the house it was a struggle

and it cost me a lot of money and stress

so finaly i had to sell miss caroline to pay the bills because we did not want to to court

my wife could not mentally take it any more so she was close to a breakdown

and i love here to much to see that happens

my vision is health and wellness goes above money

so we make a new start in our old house and in a couple of weeks i will start with harley

i did save him

well hope to speak to all off you guys

i will be back

thanks Andre

Have been wondering... sorry to hear of your real estate problems. We too had problems selling a house once, after we had bought land and started construction on a new house. We had moved into a rental, so were making payments on land, paying rent and the vacant house mortgage. $$ flies right up the chimney when that kind of s*** happens. So I feel your pain.

 

You've got your priorities right, family first (most of the time :biggrin: )  Glad you were able to hold onto Harley, that will be a good investment in the end for sure. Let me know if you need anything in way of parts. I am upside down in the garage I am building so am in a selling mode for parts. :biggrin:

Somehow I missed this post.  Sorry to see Miss Caroline go, we enjoyed her too since the start. Hopefully you gave the new owner the site so we can see her here. Visited Amsterdam briefly and liked your country. Hope family is well, can't wait to see Harley restoration pics. Regards
