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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
