Double Vision: Dual Engine Triumph Race Bike Update


I have been working on this bike non-stop the last six weeks, and it has caused me to empathize with people who have chosen the life of the recluse, leaving behind friends and family for a sole pursuit. I am not there myself, but I am looking through the keyhole and I feel as though I have come to some sort of understanding about that sort of thing though I rather wouldn't. But I digress; it has been a couple months since I updated photos of the build, which has since changed names from Milwaukee Murderer to Double Vision.


Special sprockets. This here is what joins the power of the motors by linking the crankshafts.


Oil tank in progress. Made a wood buck out of MDF and hammered annealed 5003 aluminum to make the face and dished back. Thanks to Jay Roche @ Special 79 for some tech posts on his blog which helped me out. This tank consumed at least 3 full days of my life, and I mean full days, but it is the nicest thing I have ever made.


Sometimes simple things are the best, I really like the way these fender mounts turned out.


This primary guard involved a really large MDF buck and plenty of time. I feel as though I welded miles of aluminum building this bike. Turned down a circle of MDF in my lathe, routed the edge over and hammered the dish over the clutch basket area. 1/2" strip welded to that to bring it out a bit more, and the face and sides all welded up while clamped to the wood buck to keep it in shape. Mounts to 9/16" stainless round bar that is welded to the stainless motor plates. Should be up to tech for Bonneville in August.


More aluminum, chain guard and number plates. This was a little while ago and was about the end of the major fab work. I subsequently tore the bike down to the bare frame and finish welded everything. More pics to come soon... ?

Today's archive feature:Fire Safety in the Garage


Written by Bill Bryant
Original published date 11/05/2010

Working in your home garage is a nice setup. Burning your house to the ground because you didn't pay attention to safety basics sucks. Grinding, welding, and torches combined with fluids, vapors and other hazards can make the home builder's base camp a tinder box.
If your shop or garage does double duty as the home laundry room, holiday storage or kid's toy box, you're at even greater risk. Add wooden construction, poor ventilation and a careless craftsman and things get worse. The best defense against fire is a clean and organized work area where loose sparks and other potential igniters fizzle out long before they reach fuel. This 6-Pack was put together with 33'er Tony "Rustrocket" Alarcon. Tony's been a fireman for 12 years, and despite this credential he recently lit his motorcycle on fire in the driveway. We figured someone with real experience would have the most to contribute on a subject like this.

Denton, NC 2015: Part 3

The Denton dream duo.

Welcome Poler Stuff!

We would like to welcome POLER Stuff to the ChopCult family.

We make sleeping bags, tents, bags, and accessories that are simple, good looking, well designed gear for people that are travelers, couch surfers, regular surfers, skateboarders, snowboarders, bicyclists, parents, kids, car campers and anyone else looking for something that looks good, is a good value and is all about having fun on road trips and in the outdoors. It’s stuff that is made for people that have adventures all over the world while wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers. It’s for people that wonder why everyone is trying to pretend they are going to do first ascents on alpine peaks instead of celebrating the fact that they are having adventures that are awesome in their own way.

The Poler One Man Tent fits one man, woman or child with room to spare. Lightweight aluminum poles pop together like magic. Soak in the stars or snap on the fly to keep the raindrops out. Oversized so you have plenty of room to sit up and change your clothes or do yoga. Keep dirty boots and other stuff nice and dry under the vestibule. The fly has an eye for checking the weather. Tent specs packed are 6 Round x 18 long, 5.5 lbs.




The Napsack has zippers at the shoulders, so you can stick your arms out, and a cinch at the bottom so that you can open it up and stick your legs out. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, and wear it like a puffy coat around the campfire, and then crawl right back into your tent without ever having to leave the warmth of your bag.

The Napsack - Orange

Check out POLER Stuff for all of your camping essentials. POLER Stuff has graciously sent a one man tent and a napsack for Jay Cagney to use during his EDR trip. Thank you POLER Stuff for supporting our community!
