Holy Jeebus...

Amazon Dash...

Amazon's new Dash button will make ordering household items as easy as the push of a button. Paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc. will be available in a snap. 

They also came out with the "Colorado Edition."

Big Wheel...

A little color for the mag...

I swear I won't go crazy with the Orange shit...just some touches.

A year ago...

As of yesterday, it's already been a year since the world lost Dave Brockie. Time flies, man.

Rear laced...

Will be a roller soon. When John gets me the paint and my special guest gets me the seat...I'm excited about it coming together.

20150322

Sandblasted and looking clean...

Cheap & Chinese...

But it's gonna do the trick.

What's your clearance Clarence.

Checking things out on the motor before I have the machine work done. Think I'm gonna have to massage the cases or the mag casting. They apparently beefed up the cases right before they axed the generators.

Colorado

I went to Colorado last month...that place is bananas.

I enjoy putting together this rig...

Such a cool, clean approach to top end oil feed on a shovel. I did it for the blue bike and am repeating it on the '69. Maybe I should start selling them.

My Bobby ain't playin' no foosball...

Ridin' around, lookin' around...

1960...

It's a roller. I've cleaned up my garage a little since then.

So Good...

I have to say, I think I may have found a new favorite band. These guys kill.

Bringing it back...

The blog has been sitting idle since September 22 of last year. A lot of stuff has been going on and I've been slacking. I'm moving forward with the progress on the two girls at the same time and I hope to have the '69 done by the Smoky Mountain Chopper Fest.

North Face

I liked this little bag and it fit my tool roll perfectly. Decided to make it my tool roll bag.

Coming along...

After the move, I'm finally getting back in the horse with these two builds. I keep finding stuff that I need in boxes and shit. It's tough moving, but it'll get there slowly.

This got a polish.

Hellcat dyno run...





Want to touch the hiney.

20140822

Mmmm...

That time of year...

The best of the pumpkin beers.

Beautimous...

Even though I know the likelihood of me winning one of these is about as high as that of me being able to shoot the moon with a slingshot, I still buy a chunk of raffle tickets every year for the Wheels Through Time giveaway. I hope that one day Dale will pull my ticket and I can add a bike that I previously wouldn't have been able to (I got kids to feed) to my collection. This year he's doing TWO giveaways, a 1935 and a 1936 VL...oh come on little rock...hit that moon. 


The upside is, they're a 501c3 organization, so that status makes contributions tax deductible. If you don't win anything, well you helped keep the doors open on a museum, so you get to toss that money in with your other charitable contributions on your 1040.

SLEEEEEEEEP!!!

One day I will get to see them. I wish it was still with Chris Haikus, but all things come to pass.

Oh Daytona Special WR...

Please find your way to my house.

Wheels Through Time...

I missed the Larry ride this weekend, but I had a few hours on Saturday and took my son to WTT for a look around. Ran into some friends and got Matt to fire up some bikes for my boy.

Swing arm for sale...

Early style with no zero fitting or rib. Just back from the powder coater. $175 shipped in lower 48.

Get out and enjoy the air...

It's been a long time since a post and I can't recall ever posting an article, but here is one that I think touches the very depths of what I think of social media, people's faces being piled in a device and the lack of conversation or exploration for humans in general. We're moving closer to a WallE/Idiocracy type society and it infuriates me.

The old days...

Fish On...

Relaxation.

'69 under way...

I'm moving, I just got back from vacation, I'm trying to work and raise kids...nothing to complain about other than little time for projects the past month or so. I'll have time soon though.

My buddy Mike welded up the '69 cases for me so now they have to go to the machinist so I can get this motor together.

Dammit Mike...

Fiddle fartin' around...

Had these aluminum dog bones, had these old (what I was told were) NOS Stellings bars and decided I'd see what it would all look like together.

Peach State Purple Pinner...

Some more work on the cam/kicker covers.

This was my vacation last week...

St. Barths, FWI

"Two chicks at the same time, man."

I've been sloooooowly working on the '60 XLCH while I've been slugging away at the '69 FLH. I decides that I was going to try the whole extended front end choppa look on this one since I'll probably never do it again. What the hell, right? So I got together this 6 over front end to see how it was gonna look and while it's still kinda funny to me, I'm gonna run it. Like Lawrence from Office Space, doing two at the same time feels like it costs $1 million bucks.

Safari in paradise...

I just got back from St. Barts. Because of the location of our villa, I had to have a 4wd vehicle that had plenty of power and could sit 9 people...they gave me this:

Country land...

Sad to see this land be turned into a subdivision. Wish I could've bought it when it was sold.

Shovels forever...

My heart was kinda heavy yesterday after hearing about Larry. I decided to get out in the garage and play with my toys.

Peace out, Larry...

I'm sure you've seen it all over. This is a pic from the Haints Christmas party several years ago. This picture has been hanging in my garage (thanks Eric) for 2 or 3 years.

Old Gold Garage...

Picked up a seat from them for the '69 build. I think this thing will take shape fast.

20140331

Coming together...in my mind...

This is giving me visuals. I've got good feeling about how this one is going to turn out.

Nitro!!!

The Magic Muffler Fiat. One of the most famous drag photos ever. A hairline crack on the front main up to the cam journal results in the entire rotating assembly leaving In a mass exodus, taken by Ron Lahr.

If you haven't started watching Cosmos...

Then get over to Fox.com and catch up. Neil Degrasse Tyson is a rockstar.

Colorful...


    
Scraping it all together for the '69.  

20140311

Still drinkin'...

A red rye from Terrapin makes things feel better...

Still movin'...

I've got the '69 Shovel and the '60 Ironhead both in the works. Gonna do them simultaneously. No sweat on time, just doing it as I can.
