Big smile from ear (hole) to ear (hole)!

You should have taken him to lunch. He is looking rather slim.

It looks to me like his heart wasn't in it.

Guess you were turning even more heads than usual on that ride :-)

Interesting wheel on the side - is it a spare steering wheel or is it for winding up the ejector seat spring? :-)

M G... this rider can't holder her "liquor" (er, licker) either!

Thanks to all for the fun comments.

Roger not an ejector seat winder (good idea though) but a second steering wheel for my friend Jerry. He is much longer of leg and finds it very awkward to use the pedals with the standard wheel. His wheel is a Ford spider, dished deeper and mounted upside down with a custom rim about 1" smaller than stock Ford diameter. I can use his wheel OK, but prefer the look and position of the stock wheel.

That's a great solution :-)
No friends has dared to drive mine yet, but I fixed my own knee fitting issues by flipping the standard steering wheel upside down. I had to make an extension for the throttle lever though, maybe you have a foot throttle on your speedster?
