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.

Run For Your Life 8

Run For Your Life is a grassroots chopper riding event presented by 33er image1. Now in it's eighth year, we have one simple purpose: Have a damn good time. It is a 3-day event, that usually covers 3 states. This year we will be hitting OH, PA, and NY. There is a pre-party Thursday night (aug. 4) at my shop featuring live music from The D-Rays (Surf rock) as well as my own band Bad Luck & Trouble (Acoustic folk/rock) as well as some bike games, food, and beers. Friday is a 200-mile ride to Nelson Ledges Quarry Park, where the plan will be roughly the same, and feature live music from Tyler Childers & The Foodstamps. Saturday will be another 200-mile ride through the Allegany National Forest, winding up @ the Hogarosa Campgrounds in Springville, NY. Saturday night features our famous 'rock paper scissors swag giveaway'. We prefer vintage motorcycles & choppers, but it is open to anyone and any type of bike. There are no chase trucks, and no one to hold your hand, so make sure your shit is sorted. The only costs to those that come will be camping ($15 Friday, $12 Saturday) gas and food. Ride, Drink, Camp, Repeat!
