update on Brittneys bike



d
Sorry for the lack of posts,  life has been pretty hectic.  We finished britts bike up a month ago, and had some complications with it and had to rebuild the motor to replace a faulty sprocket shaft.  We jumped through all of those hoops and have it runnign really well.  I have had it up to 65, and britt has had it up to 75,  I guess the 100 pound weight difference really has an affect.   Here is a pic of britts bike at the Saint Paul Fairgrounds from this past weekend.

Here is a pic of Brittney riding her bike for the first time.  It really fits her perfectly.  The bike will be at Born free next week, and then she has an exhibition run with Jim Wall in Holyoke Colorado on July Fourth.  Try to make it out if you can.
 This last weekend we went to the Viking AMCA meet to hang out with some friends.  We ran into Frank from Strong arm sprays.  He is a great guy and is always helping out on some level or another with the AMCA.  His product is really good too. We use it for breaking rusty stuff loose and even as cutting fluid on the lathe.
We stayed with Kevin and Amy Baas while we were in town.  I am always amazed at how quickly their boys are growing. This is Mason, he is so cool.
 
I saw this really cool bsa bike while I was at the meet.  It is tricked out and looks like a lot of fun to ride.

and another shot of my beautiful wife.  This bike was easy to build, there really are not a lot of parts on it or things to worry about, like clutches, brakes, or electrics.  She will be racing it at wauseon and davenport, so please come out and see some cool 90 year old bikes in action.   If you cant make it to the races, there will be a feature on it in american iron magazine.

PROFITEERS AMONGST US


The corporate event food chain cumulative

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow,
I don't know how she swallowed a cow...
She swallowed the cow to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly...
I don't know why she swallowed the fly.
Perhaps our scene will die?

When profit margins
are all that matters
Events become marginalized
and no longer matter.

BEERMUDA TRIANGLE TORRANCE 07.22.20.16

A THREE HOUR TOUR
~ Three Breweries in Three Hours ~
Beermuda Triangle Torrance

There's now enough Breweries in Torrance (and the immediate surrounding cities, and there's even more under construction right now coming...) where we can continue the ridiculously short Beermuda Triangles runs indefinitely and still keep the destinations in rotations where no one get's bored exploring new geometric triangle routes. Really just a chance to meet up with fellow riders and have some beer and conversation outside of the mega-event hustle and bustle. And then there's always that one asshole who say's "I don't like people enough to have conversations with them..." well, too bad, you're welcome too. Everyone's welcome to join Beermuda Triangles or start your own #DIY. These are NON-SEGREGATED functions (unless you're a minor, then your high and dry). I'm sure there's plenty of other beermuda virgin breweries out there just waiting to be ridden hard and put away wet [read: ridden extremely short and put away slightly intoxicated][legal disclaimer: although I'm not encouraging drunk driving, that's extactly why it's only three breweries in three hours, so you have more time to sample and less time to pound off a case of Coors and put yourself and others in danger. That's what overnight campouts are for am I right?]. 

July 22nd Breweries visited;
Scholb (Torrance) ~ Monkish (Torrance) ~ Phantom Carriage (Carson)


12 Breweries with at least 3 more under construction!









I don't know how Vinnie scored a PBR... that's Vinnie!




BMW Airhead Drag Bike by 33 member Dexter

I love when people step away from the norm and build a neat bike. Check out the BMW Airhead Drag Bike thread by Dexter. Dexter, thank you for using the site to showcase your progress! - Lisa


So far I have spent my time in the Sportster Forum on a build thread and while this has progressed I started looking for some ideas for a new project. You know the one just look won't buy anything just yet need to finish........ sound familiar ?

Anyway you already know what happened but here's the back story.... been looking a old BMW's for a while and looked at the growing scene in Europe for Cafe Racers and the like at the same time going to my local Drag Racing meets and thinking i would like to see if i could combine the 2.

Plenty of time doing homework and picked out a old plunger frame as the bike of choice so a R50 / R69 type, looks like they were going to be hard to come by so hatch a plan to buy just a frame and buy parts as they come up, found a frame in USA but missed it as organising shipping turned into a nightmare. It was all looking a bit of a lost cause when chance phone call which coincided with a planned weekend break just came together - the stars must have been aligned just right.-Dexter
