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.

More Content Than Time

I've taken a couple of trips and have been hitting a lot of shows this year, which has been great, but I am way behind on posting photos from all of them.  If you didn't know, this blog is a one-man operation and, with two little kids, I don't have much spare time.  The good news is that I should have plenty of content to keep the blog fresh through winter.

Blog post series to come (eventually):
  • Winter: Rear fender mounting, painting, and bracket fabrication
  • March: Harley Davidson Museum
  • March: Donnie Smith Show (pictured)
  • May: Rockers Spring Social
  • May: Moto-fishing-camping trip to Black Hills, SD
  • July: Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow
  • August: Chariots of the Gods
  • August: Spare Arts Bike Show
  • September: First Thursday / Moto Mania
  • September: Konawerks Bike Show
  • All the upcoming stuff I haven't attended or done yet.

Hopefully, you've already figured out that you can stay current with me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter (Instagram being my personal favorite) but I'll always post the majority of photos and detailed write-ups right here on the blog.  It just might take me a few months to do it.

TOT for rest of year....
