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.

Welcome Bell Helmets!

We want to welcome Bell Powersports back to the ChopCult Family!

Bell Helmets, one of the industry's most iconic brands and a leader in innovative head protection, today announced the all-new Eliminator, a homage to its pioneering automotive helmets paired modern industry-leading safety standards. An incredibly bold and assertive street performance helmet, Eliminator was designed to fit the needs of a wide range of riders, from V-twin to modern streetfighter enthusiasts. The helmet also includes Bell's all-new ProVision shield, which features proprietary dual pane anti-fog technology.

Eliminator is available in either composite or carbon fiber shells, and includes a unique ventilation design that adds style and functional advantages over its competition. The ProVision shield is ECE certified, vastly outperforming the standard mist-retardant test, and is designed for all ranges of uses from everyday commuting to extreme competition. The shield is also available in eight different tint options. 

"Bell developed the first mass-produced auto racing helmet in 1954 and has a long history in the industry with a performance-first mindset, and we drew on that history to design a racing-inspired helmet for motorcycle riders," said Chris Sackett, Bell Helmets vice president. "We pride ourselves on developing purpose built helmets that not only protect the rider, but offer a number of other key features that riders desire. Eliminator has an aggressive attitude perfect for any rider looking to scorch the dragstrip, carve the canyons or own the streets."
The Eliminator's DNA lends itself to a storied history of burned rubber, dragstrip lights, checkered flags and white knuckles infused into a purpose-built street brawler. The newest addition to Bell's lineup is product of the company's continued innovation and combines light weight, perfect fit with Bell's legendary reputation for protection. The helmet, which comes in a variety of colorway options, will be available in December in select retailers and online at www.bellhelmets.com.

New Rigid Sporty Engine Mount-Kit from Nash

"Our Rigid Sporty Engine Mount-Kit replaces the stock rubber engine mounts on stock Sportster frames from 2004 up. This mount kit installs easily with 2 people and does not interfere with normal engine mount install. Our pictures show close up of the front mount installed as well as the rear mounts with a front view of the front mount. It's solid, strong and waterproof. These mounts help take the "shake" out of your motor on the stock rubber mounts. These are CNC machined 6061 aluminum and fabricated right here in the U.S.A."- Nash
