Pat's Shovelhead Chopper




Here are some pics of Pat's bike. He liked the orange bike I built, so were using some of the same style cues. Planning to have it finished up for the Born Free show.

My Blogger pictures haven't been working with my computer system. I thought this internet thing was a fad anyways so I have been working in the shop and ignoring it. Here is a sampler of what I've been up to.

Candy Apple Red Metalflake Chopper

Finally finished this up and put some miles on it last night. Might flake or chrome the rear leg of the old springer. No hurry to take anything apart. Just want to ride it.

Triumph Overhaul


Did a few miles on this one today. Built it a few years ago. Came back for complete teardown for powder coat and detail. Rewired it with some cloth wires. New pistons and valves keep it from killing the mosquitos. Looks pretty good, and a good mannered machine.

New Years Day Shovelhead


The year is off to a good start. Started the assembly of my bike. The front end still needs some finishing up before painting. Be riding this one soon.

Flakey Paint and Candy Fades





Put down the base flake and fades today for my bike. Many coats of clear still needed to bury the flake. I like how it's shaping up.

Close to final tear down


Been trying to get this ready for final tear down and make the paint happen. Still a few things I want to do, but I really want to ride this thing. So close.
