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.

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.

20140310

Still fanstatic...

Still running...

God it's been beautiful the past couple of days.

Snow day...

Pimpin the yard with an OG snow man.

Best thing I've seen today...

Happy Valentine's Day...

The Ryno...

It may look fruitier than a shirtless softball game in the Tenderloin, but if I lived in a small apartment in a large city, you'd better believe I would ride one these bastards around. Or, it's always an option if you're one of those habitual DUI offenders that has their license suspended for years on end causing you to ride around on a <49cc a="" bar.="" can="" car="" drunky="" fit="" from="" girl="" home="" if="" in="" nbsp="" of="" p="" pep="" ride="" scooter.="" some="" something="" take="" that="" the="" to="" trunk="" up="" wants="" will="" you="">

Peach State Purple Pinner...

Trying my hand at carving. This shit is tough an tedious with a dremel. Maybe one day I'll try my hand with a graver.

First ride...

Obviously not my first ride on this bike, but my first ride since I got new eyes. Last Thursday I had lasik surgery to fix my shitty vision. The ability to see as normal happens nearly immediately, but the recovery time takes a while. I decided yesterday to wheel around a bit for the first time since then and although cold, it was a great feeling.

Mo shovel...

I won't say where...

But I was in the same room with this Saturday. Son of a bitch, a sublime green Cuda.

Merry Christmas...

I hope all of your Christmas dreams come true. One of mine is to be transported back to Club La Vela some time in the late 90's when my body spit out a hangover like I was king of the world. Just one day of fun, then back to my working stiff nonsense again. Anyway, enjoy your Christmas and have some yuletide cocktails with your friends.

Sifton Stingers...

A pleasant surprise in the Ironhead. These apparently pull a pretty penny as do all of the OG grinds from Tom Sifton before he sold the company.

One of two...Joe King Speed Shop

I asked Paulo a long time ago about a helmet, well one became two and time went on. This one is on its way to me now and the other is being finished. I have a reason why I wanted white with purple...you'll see.

Ookin' pa nub...

I'm thankful for everything; good, bad and in between. If you read this, I'm thankful for you too.

More crap...

Been kinda buying stuff for future prospects while working on current ones. Time away makes the hunt feel that much better.

I'd never seen one this complete. Instructions, two bags of jets, the factory tag, even the S&S throttle.
