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... ?

Bornfree 8 Knucklehead Wallpaper

Sometimes you have to look back to look ahead. We're wrapping up the Born Free 9 bike this week in hopes of getting it to our show this weekend, The Congregation Show, we're putting on with Dice Magazine. With that, we created a desktop wallpaper of the bike we built last year for Born Free to remind us of where we've come from. The bike was shot at Camp North End in Charlotte, N.C. for a recent Dice Magazine Issue. Camp North End is the same location we're holding The Congregation Show.

We're so stoked to show you the Born Free 9 bike. We really hope you like it, but more importantly, hope to see you at our show or at Born Free 9. Enjoy the wallpaper!

Deadbeat Retreat


THIS IS A 21 + UP EVENT

The 2017 Deadbeat Retreat will be held at Stonehedge 342 W. Grey Rd, Grey ME. This event is one day only, your ticket is good for this event and camping Saturday night.

What you'll find at the Deadbeat Retreat:

There will be an invite only chopper show, showcasing some of the best bikes around under a large event tent. This year we are also welcoming pre 70's hotrods/ ratrods so if you want to come & show your car for the day you are more than welcome to park it on the grass.

If the idea of wolf shirts, big wheel baggers, and large bike rallies make your cringe than this event is for you. As our friends over at Biltwell say it's about riding motorcycles and having fun! Last year's Retreat consisted of mostly home built chops, Sportsters, Dyna's, 650's & 750's.

Burgers & Dogs will be sold at the event along with breakfast on Sunday.

Beer will also be sold at the event.

Take a look at the 2016 Deadbeat Retreat here:


Buy your ticket now and be sure to enjoy the ride!

New Artist Showcase: Black Horizons' Chris McMorrow

  
Chris McMorrow is the man behind Black Horizons. Some might call Black Horizons a brand, but I believe it's much more than that; Black Horizons is a commitment. Chris has been an active ChopCult member since 2010 and uses the site to sells his parts and wares. He also pipes in from time to time and offers assistance in the forums. Chris shares his personal journeys through his blog, which feeds into the blogdump. His imagery and words help shine the light on Milwaukee's thriving motorcycle community. When Chris isn't blogging, you can find him ripping the roads on one of his three scoots.


Please take a moment to get to know Chris. Thanks!
