Moto Mania - August 2014 - Part 2

I rode my Sportster to Moto Mania and oddly didn't take a bunch of photos of it.  I took a lot of photos of other people's bikes but not mine.  Weird.

Here's Dustin's Sporty:

Kevin got his new tank mounted up:

Sweet Tooth Leather (the air cleaner is particularly awesome):

Another Sporty with no mufflers:

Brett's "The Gypsy":

...and the honorary Sportster of the night was Dan's Royal Enfield.  He's been modifying it a lot lately and just put a Sportster tank on it.  I like it.

Speaking of Dan, he recently pointed out that most photos on my blog don't have people in them.  It's true.  I typically go out of my way to put the focus completely on the motorcycles featured in each photograph.  I try to limit distractions in each photo and will occasionally go so far as to edit out people and things that happen get caught in the frame such as a random handlebar from a neighboring bike or a stray arm or leg of someone who was standing or walking nearby.  Besides, would you really keep coming back to my blog if it was only filled with photos like this?

It's at this point that I can imagine Dan pointing out that featuring more photos such as the one above might drastically improve my female readership.  He might be right, but I remain skeptical.

93" of LOVE - PART 1

There are a lot of ways to build up a good shovel. I've had 74s and 80s but Im now working on a fresh 93". The wheels, cylinders, cam, and pistons will kill you if you don't try and shop smart. Retail, Sidewinder kits are gonna beat you over the head at anything from $1500-$2000. Lots of good things can be said for S&S products but that's not really the point of this series. The point is to look at some math and figure out how to go the distance without going broke. photo-14 Here's a pic of my pile of parts to build up my 93" motor. Stock cases and heads will work just fine with a little trim and shim work. A set of used T&O wheels are at the heart and soul of this thing. If you haven't looked into it here's the deal with T&O. T&O stuff is killer and they've been around since the beginning. They're experience and knowledge are in their products and the prices are very reasonable. That said, these wheels were used and I paid used price. They need to be checked carefully and rebalanced but overall, they are in great condition. After a chat with some guys at T&O, I decided I'd go with new Vtwin Cylinders to save some cash over the name brand stuff. The money I saved on the cylinders I turned around and dumped on some really nice forged S&S pistons. All the stroker parts are present and accounted for. The other parts like the cone, rockers, lifters, oil pump, etc are all on a shelf as well but those are stock parts that anyone can find in abundance. I'll post more pics as the motor comes together.

Lets Go Racing!

A few weeks ago during a late night shop drinking session someone asked what I was going to do with my WLA. "What I would really like to do is race it, but..." What happened after that is a bit of a blur but  I think Jay said, "well, we better get to fuckin work then!" 12 minutes later the engine was out of the frame and on the bench. We are finishing up the engine and trans rebuild this week and we are on track to be ready well in time for The Race of Gentlemen. My pal Nick ran his 50 pan last year and did really well. This year he is running a 47 U in a VL frame. We are pooling resources and teaming up. The Kickstart Flathead Racing Dept. is in Business! Being new to racing there are some things I'm just finding out about. I don't know if you knew this, but racing is really expensive! To cover some of the costs we made up some shirts. Get yours HERE! Hope to see you all at the race in Oct. (hopefully wearing our T-shirts) Thanks  ~ Walter



We would like to thank American Icon and Biltwell  their never ending support for our dumb ideas!

Oily Souls / Run to the Thumb / Ride for Larry Pierce PT-3
















Chasing the suns slow drop to our evening camping site at one of the best bars in the mid-west - the Parisville Saloon.  A true home away from home thanks to gracious owners Poncho and his lovely wife Kelly.  If you are traveling around the thumb on a motorcycle do yourself a huge favor and stop and say hello. We were all happily road weary from a great day in the saddle but the night was just getting started...and some things were about to happen.
