Heirlooms and BF6/Thanks Again WLP

Here we are again sitting and pounding some coffee. I am about to load my truck headed out to Born Free. Decided to haul the 883 out. Wait some of you might not have even seen it. I bought a 1989 883 Sportster about three weeks ago now. After I fixed all the broken shit on it I have only had it on the road about week with it being solid. So for the first time ever I am going on a vacation. The only plan I have is being at Born Free on Saturday. If you are there we can hang out I'll be the guy in Vans with a sweet beard. But seriously last time I was out there three years ago I met some way cool people so don't be scared. Count down till take off 5, 4 ,3 ,2 ,1.

When I'm Busy I'm Busy..........

Kinda been out of it the last two weeks. Sorry but by now if you haven't found my Instagram do so. Its Anchormoto. So here is the last two weeks in pictures. Been busy on customer stuff and tomorrow I go pick my tins up and another Ironhead to work on. Good times. Helped Tyler fix his Ironhead last week when his mechanical advance went Boom! Never in all my years seen a set go that bad and the bike still kinda ran. Got a 750 Honda I am throwing together for a club brother and I have Nick Reynolds Digger in for a new set of pipes. I did these real quick but Nick wants them going one out the left and one out the right. So the front pipe is gonna go out the left side and the rear goes out the right. Ill give it a go. I do like these over/under pipes though. On to the next week. Top 5 SaturdayTop 5 reason to Love/hate everything!

Number 1. It is the ying yang of the universe there is simply no way around it.

Number 2. I'll take motorcycles for example there are so many things I love about them and flip the coin and there are more things I hate about them.

Number 3. Some kind of love there some kind of Hate. I'm gonna tell you all about now. Misfits song says it all.

Number 4. Knuckle tattoo's . Seriously they fit perfect. You want to be tough then here is the answer. 

Number 5. There are some bands  out there that upon first listen I fucking hated with all my soul.Then many months or even years later I hear them again or in the background and I'm all like Huh what is this. Then I find out and they are my new favorite band till I wear it out then I hate it again.

So After.....

So after many many moons I have to report the Norton project is finally done. Like in the books I have rode it and it rips. Took it out to my favorite spot in the sticks and shot the pics of it next to the puffy clouds. I really had no idea it was gonna be so fast and punchy. I will say between a Triumph, Bsa, or Norton the Norton  will straight spank the others. So Russ the owner finally has his bike in his garage. Granted none of the extreme amount of time was do to me but the shop that built the motor did a shit job and really made the project take 2 years longer then it should have. Oh well and never ever use Baxter in Iowa for any kind of service work. EVER! Maybe one of the weirdest builds I've done but I feel more satisfaction with this one because it pushed me to think outside my little chopper worm hole I have stuck myself in. I'm right back in it now!
