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... ?

Mama Tried 2015 - Part 5 - Trouble

Trouble was the headlining band at the Mama Tried pre-party at the Harley-Davidson Museum.  I'll be honest, I was really excited to see Mount Salem but I had no idea who Trouble was.  Well, shame on me.  It's embarrassing really.  If you don't know Trouble, learn a little bit about the band's history here, and then go start buying their albums (I just started with their self-titled album and will probably pick up Psalm 9 next).  They are one of the earliest doom metal bands dating all the way back to 1979.  They rocked and it was a great way to get an education.

Check out bassist Bobby Good Times in a Heavy t-shirt.

Here's a bunch of photos from their set:

I took some video when they decided to pay tribute to Black Sabbath and cover their song "Supernaut".  Some guy decided to stage dive into the crowd and took out an innocent bystander very close to me. I'm not sure if that was the plan or if he thought the crowd would catch him. The crowd wasn't packed very tightly and just let him fall.  Amazingly, he managed to hold onto his beer and seemed unhurt.  I'm not sure the same can be said for the person that he destroyed.


After the official pre-party was over, the party continued for many of us at the Rah Mah Dah where Ruth was slinging Coors Light and overpriced mixed drinks from behind the bar.

Lots of photos from the bike show will be posted next but they're taking a while to edit since I took so many.  Hold tight.

AMF'R Belt Buckles

Limited supply available in the Freakin Shop...


Hand made by Banged Up Bob himself.

Limited Edition Harley Shirts With Dice Issue 60.



We teamed up with HD and had them remake us 50 of these limited edition T shirts. Blanks like this don't exist so they had them hand sewn and then printed. And all done in Milwaukee. It's an old Willie G design and one of our personal favourites. They came out great. They are going to be available with issue 60 as a collectors pack to be released at 9am California time on Monday morning March the 9th from HERE

killer!!!


Mama Tried 2015 - Part 4 - Pre-Party

The Mama Tried pre-party was mostly about the music but there were a few bikes on display too such as this Sposrtster.

The red, white, and blue back-lighting made for some very cool photos but, for better or worse, it makes seeing any detail on the bikes nearly impossible.

The venue was cool.  It's called "The Garage".  I think the museum uses it for all sorts of events, not just concerts.

There were a lot of people there and I ran into a bunch of people I knew.  It was also fun to see two photographers that I admire, Josh Kurpius and Mikey Arnold (aka Mikey Revolt), busy taking photos.

Photos of Trouble are up next!

Snows the time for a Good Book!


So most of the country is under 16 inches of snow and roads are frozen and gas pumps are frozen and girl friends are asking you "Do I look fat in this Parka?" And you're, like, "Yeah baby. You look like a hippopotamus in that coat." And you're only telling her the truth, but there's no sandwich in your future. Instead of dealing with reality... sit down with a good book and tell the old lady to go out to the garage and get you a beer... from the store!
