me? nothing too fantastic.

spent some time on the Chief...pulled and cleaned the carb. Not content with a nicely cleaned linkert...well, its pointless; because you'll never see it...but it sure looks nice!!!

We're going to get a 6-7 hp engine for it so it's going to be pretty quick when it's done.

There are more photos of the progress in my Photos

Right now it's my last and only bike. My 02' Sporty, frame is getting hardtailed (4" out and 2" drop) and ideas are bouncing off my thin walled head as I type. Right now the frame is with someone that knows what the hell they are doing, plans for the rest of the bike is for me to practice with my MIG unit, then mount my Red Tail seat, some sort of rear fender, chain final drive, blah, blah, and finish it off with blue and cream paint out of a spray can in some way to make it look mo' gooder. boogedy boogedy!!!

74' Ironhead, PO was a douche and obviously didn't have a service manual or a clue. As soon as money is a non-issue it's gettin' it's ass cut off and hardtailed, and maybe a springer if i can scrape together enough cash. in the mean time it's fixin' the little shit the PO half-assed or screwed up. sorry no pics on the computer to share, it's really nothin' much to look at anyway.

My T100R just had a minor heat sieze , rolled off the throttle and she recovered but then I got an unholy rattle and in all fairness the pistons and cylinders really were worn and prob should have been bored before getting slapped back in ... then when pulling the cylinders i managed to crack a fin .. awesomeness so we'll see if i can repair and have it bored or if im going to have to source new cylinders as well now ... oh yea and the clutch is shot all to hell should have that in tomorrow .. of course its kinda a mute point now that the engine is once again in pieces .. its sad I have so many other projects id rather be working on and this one just won't get into line for me to make it too them

I bought a ironhead off CL literally in the middle of the night. It looked dope under a flashlight but once i got it home I started going through it and its 3 or 4 bikes built into one. I have it all torn down and bought a new paughco frame. Starting to put it back together but it just might be beyond my knowledge level but we'll see.

Still working on getting my shvl finished in time for the GR. Thought I'd have it done but my normal wait till the last minute thing bit me in the ass again. I wanted to ride it to the loser machine gig in Carlsbad...didn't make that. Now only three weeks till I need to load up for the east coast!!!
I had to replace my air compressor yesterday, hope to shoot the paint this week. I figure I'll just spray it thick enough to sand smooth. That way it'll look like I know what I'm doing, but trust me I don't have a fucking clue.
