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.

This weekend folks - Raven's Run

A motorcycle run starting from Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and coming together for two nights of camping, one day of glorious riding, and unprecedented amounts of shenanigans.

Get ready to call in sick to work on Friday because it's going to be a nice ride into camp.


Friday, August 28
Everyone will leave from their respective cities.
Meeting points/times announced closer to the date
A night of camping and festivities

Saturday, August 29
Wake up, dust off, long day of riding through the beautiful back roads through Quebec and Ontario. Food stops, gas stops, and some swim stops will happen.
Come back to camp for some chopper shenanigans.

Sunday, August 30
wake up, clean up, group rides back home.

Camping is $12/night payable at the gate when you enter.
There aren't assigned sites and there are specific fire pits.
The camp ground is along the river where you can swim and we will be mostly concentrated around a large fire pit with a pond (clothing optional) right next to it.
There are cabins and trailers available for those that don't wish to sleep on the ground, please arrange with the campground to reserve those spots

Before and after

Going thru some pics and found these. 

Thought I would do a little before and after. 



After. Tank and paint , bars , trees shaved internal fork stops, different headlight setup , new levers and MC. Fork shrouds
Top end rebuilt and new cam. 3" primary changes out for 1.5". Mids fabricated. Sissy bar fabbed and different fender , tailight. Completely rewired. New rear wheel with disc brakes. Pipes.    

I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff.

Cheapo Chopoff 2015



Riding through the Woods and Mud

This past Sunday I took the 883 out for more off-road adventures.  This time I brought my GoPro and a tripod.  I set the tripod up in various locations and took video of me riding past it.  Of course, I took a lot of photos with my phone too.

Here's a long-distance selfie taken with my GoPro:

The sky was covered in a thick blanket of fast moving clouds that made for an ominous backdrop.

However, the sun did peek through every once in while.

This road made for some good photos because of the vanishing point.  It was sandy and quite slippery in some sections.

As I mentioned, I took quite a bit of video.  Here are a few stills from the forest section:

However, the most fun I had was in this part where there was standing water from the rain showers on Saturday.  I started cautiously just riding through the edge of the puddles before taking a chance closer to the middle.

It was cold, wet, and very dirty but I was grinning ear to ear.  I felt like a little kid jumping in puddles.

The bike was (and at the moment I'm typing this, still is) absolutely filthy.

Here's the video:
