65 panhead, 1955 panhead, 36 knucklehead and maternity photos

We got Jason's 65 finished and put about 300 miles on it,  my dad is driving down to the Texas road run and delivering it this weekend.  This bike is massive,  I didn't try to ride it with the buddy seat on it,  I am too short!  Jason is a lot taller than me and will do just fine on it.  

1965 didn't use a side cover on the battery,  I think it looks nice with out it.  The battery that we used is a champion battery and it is nice and black, some of the other modern batteries are clear or have a bunch of writing on them.  The mufflers are new old stock and sound great.  The tour pack is something that Jason supplied and it is really cool. It has an early latch on it and also a handle so you can Cary it with you



I got to take my 36 out for the first time this year. Sophorn put a windshield on it, which ended up being more of a challenge than we anticipated since the summer shields were designed for standard rigid bars and I have Flanders bars on my bike.   

I am making good progress on the 55 too it should be done and running next week.  This bike is phenomenal and I feel so lucky to get to work on such a nice pristine example of an original bike
The rear header pipe was missing when they brought the bike to us.  My dad had a nice old original superior rear header pipe in his stash of parts.  It fit up really nicely and matches the rest of the bike well


Britt and I did our maternity photos with the bike. It was fun.  Here is a link to the rest of the photos http://jaceejphotography.blogspot.com/2014/04/brittney-matt-maternity.html?m=1

Parking Lot at Long Beach (2)

Random bikes from the Long Beach Cycle Swap, September 28th 2014


Love how many Sportsters are getting the "treatment" not to Suck, because, as you know...

Word up Frog.



Wait a second, what's that?

Straight outta' "Planet of The Ape Hangers!"

Shovelhead Rear End Re-do. Part 4: New chain and swap a rear brake line

I got the correct size tire on and adjusted the chain for the new 46 sprocket. The adjustment was pretty huge.


And the chain is junk, too.

The wheel moved back so far that my swingarm converted to rigid caliper bracket won't work either.


Time for a new chain and a reset. Bring the axle almost all the way forward. I don't want to go all the way because I may end up with the 48 back in it.


The brake stay and caliper all work together again.


New chain.


Throw it on and see how much I don't need.


Break it.


Looking good. Add the master link.


Wow! Really? The rear brake line doesn't fit now? That doesn't make a lick of sense.


I have two lines with a pressure switch in between, so I could change the long piece or the short piece. I think this line from my spare parts bin is a bit longer than the long piece that I'm running.


I didn't know for sure until I took it off the bike, but luckily it's just long enough to work well.


Success. I need to fill and bleed the system and ziptie the floppy parts of the line to the frame.


I got a new front tire on it today, too. I need to verify my axle and chain alignment and torque and pin the rear axle nut and the rear end refresh will be complete.

Fuck It




Saw this a month or two ago. It's got the South Bay Swoop that is as much a part of Southern California history as Dick Allen and Fat's Noriega founded. This Ironhead has new tins this month. Still available. You know where to find it if you're interested....
