The DS7 finds a home

Picked up this little guy this mornings. I have always had s soft spot for these two strokers. Had it running in less then an hour and already had some wheelie time on it. Pretty fast for a 250. DG pipes sound good.

Bye bye baby

So I sold off the Shovel project. Probably best to just suck it up. Trying to run a shop in winter maybe is a terrible idea. Do what I must and there are plenty of other bikes out there. Scored like three years worth of Loctite for 10 bucks. Normally 40 dollars a bottle. Insane!  So with a heavy heart I drove to drop off the shovel to the new owner. Then I spent the rest of the drive thinking about all the cool shit I'm gonna do with the money. Ha

Chachachanges

So the shop is plugging along as expected. Winter is upon us and I've got some time to work on my shovel. I'm changing it to hand clutch foot shift and see if I like it. It's been jockey shift since I built it. Might be my only bike for awhile. Shop Ironhead is pretty close and the best pizza in the world.

Beamer

Tore into the Beamer project today. Got all the metal work knocked out and got it down on the floor. I love the before and after shot, it sits really low and looks kinda fast. It won't be but it looks like it.

For The Noot

One of my only real motorcycle Heroes. Noot up in Chsrles City is a true pal. Gives knowledge as well as his pops.  Ruler and hoarder of sorts, owns the bike that broke both of our knees and is the only guy I trust yo machine engine parts for me. Made the trek up there last week and he had hand painted me s sign for the shop. Thanks and check him out on the sidebar. Noot tastic!

2015 Is Gonna Be A Good One!

 Already have a few trips planned for next year. A few of us are riding to BF7 and then a month later a gaggle of us are gonna ride to Sturgis again. Honestly I will stay in North Dakota maybe a day then take off and ride around the black hills then head east towards Minneapolis then jam home. Been kinda a gnarly year and I'm looking forward to riding a lot more next year. I'm building another shovel to ride on all these trips next year and Amber will have her Ironhead all done and broken in. It is turning out real good and by the spring I'll be busy at the shop so these breaks will be good for me. Make plans and follow through! Noot shot this pic of me riding thru the Badlands. I sang SPringsteen songs in my head the whole way across.

Leatherface - In The Real World



I have basically rediscovered Leatherface and am on super heavy rotation of there Mush record. So good I want all there records now so I may go an entire 8 hour day with nothing but Leatherface!

The Past Is the Past.....



Kinda forgot about this little bike I built many many moons ago. Went from digger to a little blue bike then one week before Greaserama I ripped it all apart and painted it this Tangerine metalflake candied mess. Man it rode so good I seriously might need my head checked as to why I took it all apart and sold it off to Dave.

Deraked.....

Decided I was gonna have to derake the shovel frame from 34 to 30. So while I was at it I windowpaned the gusset and then metal finished the rest. Fixed the look of the bike and got the ground clearance fixed as well. Installed the fat bobs three times till I got them sitting right. Here is a few words of wisdom. If your bike has fat bob mounts leave them and make your tank fit them. It's gonna go fast now!

Gonna shoulda woulda......

Been just doing what I do and trying to get set up for winter. It's been bitter cold and already I hate seeing people that get to ride there bikes year round. So here is what's going on. Triumph built from two milk crates and a bunch of busy work. Been slowly piecing together another shovel for me to ride next year. So far I hate it.

Some Random Stuff..............











In no order there is a super old pic of me and some friends, being a biker is easy these days, a sweet kicker I got from Pete in MN, a cute girl I know, a disease I wish I had, some records I've been listening to and Shea broken down on one of our outings. The weather has got to the part where it is shit and then we get a nice day thrown in. Been trying to ride a lot. I have a ton of bikes to work on so that's good, I'll keep my head down and nose clean.
