not welcome..

i rarely write on blogs but upon opening the new cafe racer on my way out of town I stumbled upon this.. It amazes me that this bike was built by TONY STUCKWISCH and the ANCHOR, the motor was built in tonys personal shop before the ANCHOR took full form, and the full fabrication and wiring was completed at the ANCHOR. Twice now ive seen this bike in the media and not one mentioned word of the ANCHOR.

Cha Cha Changes again

Well in a brief moment of insanity I rode the Blue Ironhead to the shop and decided it needed to be repainted. 2 hours later the bike is in pieces. Got the frame blasted today and by the weekend we will be doing a crazy candied bling job on it. I have been really digging the look of David Mann's panhead from the 60's. Granted I have a Ironhead and he rode a pan. I don't care about the motor per say but the look of his bike was timeless and had a perfect stance. Any ways I will post some pics of the redo and it will be at Greaserama so check out the sickle if you are coming.

Once again I got Crazy Stories.....

So I ride my cycle everyday that I can. Which has been everyday lately. We have had a good break in the heat and I have really been riding allot. So I leave work on my lunch break and jump on the interstate to hit the post office box and grab a sandwich. As I get up to full speed and start my normal in and out of cars and winning my one bike race I hear a very weird thud. Next thing I know I am doing the full on flat track slide across three lanes and then back across the three lanes and then back across, etc, etc. I blew a back tire out. Though I have had it happen before never at 80mph and never like a instant explosion and then sliding. I know how to ride my bike. I know how to be in control in a very uncontrollable situation. I was still fucking freaking out as the bike finally slowed down enough to put the brake on and get it stopped. I get off the bike and look around, I am missing some spokes? Where the hell did they go? Who knows. I think I hit something at full speed and it got in the rear wheel and broke some spokes. I found all three spokes inside my tube! Yep all three had been sheared off by something and the rest of the spokes where in my tube. Tire looks alright but the spokes are dead. My boss had to come pick my sorry ass up. I found some spokes in a old wheel that would work and I put it all back together tonight. Good Times and changing tires by hand sucks the most. One more notch in the belt and all those years of riding on dirt paid off again.
