    Default poop's tuscaloosa dumpling, honda cb500t

    finally on the road this week, just a few small issues to iron out. many thanks to various members of the peanut city geeks for their help and encouragement, paricularly markee, will g, danny d, and winslow. also brad at gypsy choppers, my father-in-law, and especially a local aircraft restoration mechanic tom kurtz who spent lots of time teaching me how to do all kinds of stuff i wouldn't have imagined i could do. he made a lot of things make sense. these are just a few of many who took the time to help me out, and i appreciate it.

    anyway...

    1975 honda cb500t
    kilby deuce custom hardtail
    stock engine, PAMCO electronic ignition, dyna 3 ohm coils
    front brake caliper from some sportbike rear, master cylinder from yamaha raptor quad
    ASV "unbreakable" (quotes, haha) levers for yamaha quad
    tank chopped by poop, tunnel fab and welding by gypsy choppers, site gauges by kilby deuce
    tank filler cap from stock cb500t tank, cut and stolen
    pipes and intake by poop, ceramic coated by andy at thermal tech
    cam chest breather lines by poop, chest covers drilled and tapped for brass barbs
    rear brake designed and fabbed by poop, with help from friends
    trick fender mounts that adjust straight back at six points using heim joints to follow wheel at chain adjustments
    pivot pegs rotating mx pegs, mounted by poop
    seat designed and fabbed by poop, with help from friends
    rock shox pearl shock from mountain bike for seat suspension. air/oil adjustable spring rate, damping and gate valve
    custom leather grips, seat leather and battery box by local saddle guru, mike fowler
    (that's unknown hinson on the seat, and yours truly on the battery box)
    paint by danny dailey
    many parts powdercoated by poop and friends in an old kitchen oven
    pull chain switches with majority of wiring stuffed in headlight, using relays and diodes

    Absolute killer attention to detail on this bike. Great job!! It's not my style but who gives a shit, I would be happier than a pig in shit if I was you and super proud of building something as sweet as that machine. Super clean!!

    That is nice, very nice. If you wanted to I'm sure you could get that bike in "The Horse" or a magazine like that. That is great work.

    Useless trivia: At the time the cb450/500 DOHC twin was made it had the longest timing chain of ANY production vehicle.

    Damn that bike looks great man. Do you have closeups of the headlight mount pull chain area?

    That thing is pretty sick! By chance, is that Jesco White on your seat? kinda looks like him... I really dig those pipes, and I bet that seat is nice and comfy!

    thanks, everyone. i'm very happy with it. brandon, i'll give you a shot. ;-)

    detale, i'll post some at the bottom of this entry. the old pictures only have one pull chain, it now has two. the switches are only made for a very small amperage, so they need to be wired in with relays. three different relays in that bucket, along with two diodes and two inline fuses.

    slick, the seat actually is VERY comfortable. designed after the horse saddles i grew up with, and fitted and hammered dozens of times, it's crazy comfortable, even without fine tuning (yet to be done) on that pearl mountain bike air shock. truth is, it's pretty cushy, but makes me look tough. ;-)

    oh, and no. i'm big jesco fan, since 1999, but this is unknown hinson. they are somewhat related, however. hank 3 and jesco have some kind of friendship, and hank 3 has unknown tattooed on his bicep.

    i guess we're both big fans.

    That was my next guess actually, I'm also a big Hank 3 fan, as well as Jesco! I'm planning a Hank family tattoo right now!

    Hey Poop, what's up with the Tuscaloosa reference for the bike name? Just curious, that's just a little down the road from me.

    i'm a big unknown fan, as i mentioned above. and by extension an early cuyler (squidbillies) fan.

    and a fan of degrading sex acts...

    wait, i thought it was when a man gives a womern a little memphis mouthwash, and simultaneously, she administers the birmingham blister, right on the bridge of his nose.
