Weekend Wigglin'



I've had a plan to build me a custom king and queen seat for my motorbike for awhile now, but couldn't seem to find the time to do it. It's a pain in the ass. I got tired of having a seat bungee corded to my frame like some clown. That said, I consulted my adviser of chemical reaction, Danny and my adviser in terms of technical proficiency, Josh and got to stepping. I planned on mounting the seat to my existing seat hinge up front, to allow me to switch back to my solo seat if I ever got the urge. So I cut some 16 gauge steel for the front section where it mounts to the hinge. Wasn't sure how strong the fiberglas was going to be. Drilled some holes in the pan to allow it to rest on the seat spring spud jams. Also, at Josh's request, drilled some 3/8 holes randomly in the pan so the resin could flow through and bond to the other side. Covered everything up with masking tape, then saran wrap so the fiberglass would pop off once hard. Fiberglass is nasty and stinks. But quite enjoyable. I built it up a layer at a time until I had it about 1/4" thick. Then sanded and trimmed it down. Turned out pretty good, I think and it's pretty damn hard. I realized I need to trim the front section down a bit so it follows the line of the rails. I'm going on vacation for a couple weeks, so the plan is to drop it off at the upholsterer and hopefully it'll be done when I get back. Party scene. Out.

VVMC Two Wheeled TOY DRIVE


 Friday December 5th come down to Venice and help give back to the kids of our community by rolling up on your bike or scooter with a new unwrapped toy in support of the 2nd Annual Two-Wheeled Toy Drive!  

There will be a DJ, complimentary food from Wurstküche & Pitfire Artisan Pizza - Mar Vista, drinks from Angel City Brewery, Pabst Blue Ribbon, American Born Moonshine, & Sailor Jerry, a charity raffle, holiday games and camaraderie amongst friends.  The event will be held at the old city hall, Beyond Baroque, from 8pm-midnight.  A new unwrapped toy or a $20 donation gets you access to the evening's festivities.  

THEN!  Sunday morning, Dec 7th, we will gather at Deus Ex Machina (1001 Lincoln Blvd., Venice CA) for some coffee and strap all of these toys to our bikes.  We have been given the go ahead from the city to ride over the boardwalk into Muscle Beach and deliver the toys in proper fashion:  on our two-wheeled sleds!  There will be a ton of press, local freaks & families, so it will be pretty rad to have a VERY LARGE turnout of support bikes to help with this delivery!

None of this could happen without the support of these fine businesses & clubs:
