On the Road

Sunday afternoon in the Arizona desert hanging out with all my friends. The new seat is foamed and waiting to be covered. Painting the tank and fender is next on the list.

Brain Food

Brains, aka Brian, freaking out the squares late night at the Wendys drive through. A steady diet of carbs, fat, sugar, and chopper riding keep him functioning at peak performance.

Saturday Shop Pic

Yes my shop is crowded and messy. Legs mounted on the english wheel and it tucks in next to the helve hammer nicely. Added a removeable platform to the center for hammer and bag shaping. Roughed in an alloy tank for a norton featherbed cafe racer based on the fiberglass one in the bottom of the pic. Probably paint the e-wheel after I decide if I'm going to truss it or not.

Chopper Rescue

Rescueing Brains and his old Honda chopper when the rear brake self destructed. Bend, weld, grind, hammer, and he's back on the road.

King & Queen

Made a king & queen seat base for my shovelhead. Modeled it after Jacobs seat that the Haifley brothers had featured in Show Class #3. Retains the solo seat option should I choose it. Put a little stash tube in the middle. Maybe I can fit some cut down tools in there. Post more pics once it's covered.

1956 Austin Healey Hood

This hood had a big hole in the center and that fiberglass scoop glopped on it with bondo. Patched the hole with the tig welder. The third picture shows all the shrinks that it took to make it not taco shaped. It's a bit like a noodle with the sub structure removed. Got to try out the new english wheel dialing the shape back in.

Vulture Mine Road

Headed out Saturday morning with Tobin, Brains, and Pete. Phoenix to Wickenburg to Vulture mine road. Then all the way south of the 10 to Arlington. Through the cotton fields to this cool old bridge. Back through Buckeye north on Cotton lane headed back into town. Cool scenery and long empty roads on impractical chopped motorcycles. Really good time.

English Wheel

A good way to burn up a weekend and a some days before and after. Built an english wheel to replace the Harbor freight one I have been playing with. The first and last one I will build, I hope. Frame is 5x5inch 1/4 wall tubing. Does a nice job of putting shape in the test panel. Need to build some legs for it too.

Good Day

Finished up the front end change on my shovelhead. Then there was the first ten feet of the test ride when you think you ruined your bike. But you give it some throttle and it starts to be fun. A ride around the block turns into a ride around the neighborhood. Then some miles later you put it up. And start thinking I should go for a ride when the sun goes down. Probably could happen.

Denvers Springer

2nd hand Denvers springer that I picked up at the swap this weekend. Really excited about it. Putting it on my shovelhead as soon as I figure out a wheel set-up. That's Annie, my 20 year old cat.

Woody Rules ! ! !

Met Woody today in Prescott. Super cool, would you believe he's 81 years old. Had this Panhead since 1978. Righteous!

Cafe Racer Fun!

Cafe racer fun in the high desert with Christian from Coalition Imagery. Rode the back way to Prescott up Yarnell hill. Went into a turn flat track style by accidentally locking the rear drum at high speed, oops! Rode it out well enough. Met a cool old Biker, see post above. Good food, good company, good fun!
