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.

El Diablo Run 2017 post 6 of 12









I don't know where this banner came from but it's probably the best banner in the world for a multitude of oxymoronic reasons! I love it.

Ohhhh man, I think we messed up??? WE MISSED TACO MOTO SATURDAY!!!!! pt. 1/2


The idea is simple; Put on FREE SHOWS with LIVE BANDS on Saturday afternoons throughout the Summer as a natural extension of the ever popular Taco Moto Tuesdays! We did one show last year and it was a total hit, so this year we're going to try and do two (maybe three....?) but our first TACO MOTO SATURDAY for 2017 was yesterday (and hopefully you didn't miss it?) and it was fun as fuck! Thanks to everyone who showed up and supported Good Times and TACOS~! Did I mention these are FREE SHOWS? Well, that's the difference between "for profit" and "for fun" and we think that makes all the difference in the world! High Five Bitches!!!
