Inspiration Override

Something went awry and I mig welded all this crazy molding on this thing. Got a little carried away, but I like the design.


I spent some time cleaning up the narrowed sportster tank and planished the welds. I also tig welded on the filler.

Hot Dog Don

Trimming back the frame rails to get the coupe to set right on the frame.

Out standing in my field

Here's a picture Cindy from FSK took of me back at the Slab City Riot. Changed things around a bit online. I added a shopping cart to the sidebar of my blog. Will work on new shirts and products as I can. All handmade by me so quantities are limited. Ditched the old website. This seems more interactive. Check it out HERE or click on the Anvil logo on the right side of the page.

Lincoln Brakes

Whittled out a set of adapters to fit vintage Lincoln brakes onto early Ford spindles. I know someone makes these as a production part, just ended up making my own.
