    This has been a very useful thread for me. I own a 5th and want to use this as reference.

    Greg, I can appreciate all the "cleaning" work, I built a project FJR that I got basically in pieces and baskets. I think I spent more time cleaning than I did putting it together, but it was showroom clean when it left here.
    As far as your photos, there once was a workaround to view photos held hostage, but yours now seem to be gone... if you still have the originals, I'd recommend SmugMug (started by motorcyclists for motorcyclists), and while there is an annual fee of around $40, it is well worth it for the peace of mind. But, helluva job replacing all those links here......
    I'm in the midst of restoring my '99, but I'm gonna spend less time on cleaning, LOL. Cheers!!

    Greg, all of the photos still work for me. There is a browser extension that allows photobucket images to show up. The one I am using in Chrome is Photobucket Hotlink Fix, I went through the thread and all of the images are still showing up for me.

    Greg - Download all your PB photos to your hardrive if you can.... Then I recomend Smugmug as a host for the photos, you can easily reload on that site and repost...
    -Its been working for me...

    Wow! I just installed the fix you described and it works like a charm... at least for now.

    Unfortunately I don't know how long my Photobucket account will remain viable because they have been relentlessly hassling me for additional money due to "bandwidth usage". This full-court press started up just after I made my yearly payment for my Photobucket account. I guess they figured that since they'd just gotten my yearly payment it was a good time to hit me up for more money.

    Yes, I'm going to do the download-and-save to hard drive soon (gotta find the time to devote to the effort).
