Landspeed Knuckle:Part 1

So, I bought the 41 some 6-7 years ago (maybe more?!) from my good friend PQ as a box of parts and over 2 years he and I built it back into a powerplant.  From there she lived in a simple rigid set up that I rode often for most of those years, clocking  well over 20,000 trouble free miles.  Over that whole time period however, I never actually finished the bike.  It was always just a temporary deal, holding me over you could say, until I felt I was ready for the next leg of the journey.

Well, after letting this poor lady sit for almost a whole year, I decided it has been long enough.  I'm starting in on this Landspeed dream while I can!

I'm not really 100% sure of the scope of the project just yet, and there are a ton of details yet to be determined, but I'm starting,

Today I am setting some goals for this project, to hold my self accountable.

1) setting a deadline of one year from yesterday to have a running & riding prototype.  If i'm doing it, I want to push my limits, and I want to do it right.

2) While the quest is indeed about speed, for me it also just as much about actually showing up to the salt flats with a 100% purpose built bike and running it.

3) Enjoying the whole process.  So much of my life is motorcycle related, but 99% of it is work-for-clients.  I do not want to stress about this project, no matter what.  I work on my own stuff because I can, and because I love it.  I welcome this as an opportunity to re-connect with my machine.  Things will not always go as planned. I will have problems. But I love problem solving, and look forward to solving issues they arise.  

4) The experience as a whole will be new for me. The locations, the faces, the history, it's all territory I can't wait to become acquainted with.

 The old set up...
 Saying goodbye

Evaluation!

Spare Arts Motorcycle Show - Part 1

Back in March, I attended the Build Art Bike Show (click here for pics) hosted by Andy from Hold Fast Motors.  Andy organized a second show this year called the Spare Arts Motorcycle Show.  It was held August 23rd in Austin, MN.  Instead of riding to the show, I decided to drive and take my kids with me.  It was just as well as we hit rain most of the way down to Austin.  After taking the kids through the Spam Museum, the rain stopped so we headed to downtown Austin and found the show.

Here's Andy's bike:

I believe the trailer next to it was his too:

Jason's Dyna and a pair of Sportsters:

There were a few other neat vehicles at the show too including this VW camper...

..and this Harley-themed bicycle.  You can learn more about the bicycle here.

More motorcycles up next!

update on cannonball run

Man I man.  I can't believe that we are already on stage 14.  Our bikes have covered a lot of miles and have not had any real problems or issues.  We had to tighten  up the neck bearings on my dad's 36 and I rotated the tires on my 36.  The rear tire had 7 thousand miles on it and was getting a little thin.  It still has some meat left to it .  I will put a new one on before I ride the bike back to south Dakota.   This is the first big trip that we have used all state tires.   They are really nice and wear well.   I got stuck in the rain on them one day and they did great when compared to other vintage tires .   We got Jasons vl rebuilt and running again.  He is out of the game in points and decided to continue riding our spare bike and having fun rather than beat his head against the wall with his old flathead.   Over 30 percent of the entrants have broken down, given up or fallen out of the range of points needed to finish.  This cannonball has been the most brutal one yet.   Lonnie is going to do a 16 and earlier run in 2016 which is awesome.  The days will be shorter and there will be fewer entrants.

Anyways here are some photos from the last few days.


We stopped by a nice little town called junction city and had a rest day.  I took my dad's hubs apart and inspected them.  They were pretty good. Check out the period correct bike lift
We hung out with the owner of the local dealership and talked old bikes with him.  He has been a dealer for 50 years.  It was pretty cool to talk about how motorcycling had changed over the last five decades.
Thanks to all of our sponsors that chipped in to help.us out on the cannonball.  The run has been a blast and we have met so many cool.people.across the country
Jasons family came to hang.out amd.cheer him.on.
Lock is still working on finding the right tool.to. make his teeth come in.
We stopped In Colorado at David uhls studio.  He threw a great dinner for everyone brittney signed a couple prints of Davids Sturgis painting that has brit and I on it.
