Memorial Day 2011

We had a great weekend and just kinda hung out as a family really no wild weekend.
Kraut came down from Kentucky to visit a bit.Sunday started with the van having issues so Dave-o had to lubricate the shifter linkage.

Making a beer run burnt to a crisp.


My ol man and the neighbor acting badass cause they won in cornhole.

I bought a few fireworks for the kids

Chip shot down and worked on his bike a bit, he is planning to go to Cali on it so look for him.

The girls had a dance off

We basically relaxed and did some riding and got burnt as hell.

Nice X-Ray

Wade from Garner who was on the Revenge Run sent me a link of some pics he had from the run, then showed me this awesome X-ray. He had a spill at Reggie's at the after party and has been down and out. Get well buddy.

My trip to Diesels

So my buddy Diesel told me to come visit him after Myrtle Beach that it was on the way back on Oak Island. So I didnt turn down the oppurtunity for beer and new shop to see.

Saw some awesome sites along the way.

He is working on this Ironhead right now and has everything for the bottom end but needs stuff for the top-end, I believe its a 79 email me if you got jugs or heads.

Vintage Richard Petty poster was sweet.

He broke this old Jammers catalog out which was awesome seeing the old prices for hardtail kits and springer front ends.

This sweet old easyrider calender with specific dates to check your chain, and oil , and points.

This is the roller that the Ironhead is going in.
Ok so I have been down a few days with work and helping my girlfriend move, but all is back to normal now and hopefully we can get to work in the shop again. Kyle is back from his honeymoon and can hopefully come out and play as well now. Chip the world traveler I passed yesterday but he didnt wave back.

A nice jockey shift set-up on a fatboy from Myrtle

This sweet 70's Triumph was parked out back.

Caught him as he was buzzing off.

Only went down to see the woman and watch Rebel Son

Bitching Tech Article

OK so everybody loves Tech articles cause they can see how to install a open belt primary or install a hardtail on your Triumph. The only issue with that is I don't have the dough for a open belt but thanks for showing me how easy it is to install one.
Dave-o is rebuilding his Ironhead and asked my opinion of the bike so I pointed him in a different direction with the oil bag. Me and Dave have been highly influenced by Jeremiah from Love Cycles cause he uses a horse shoe oil tank on almost everything and they look great. Dave-o was running a cylinder type oil bag. So I said dude lets make a horse shoe oil tank.
This is what we started out with.

This is what we ended up with.

We have less than 50 bucks in this oil tank (no its not painted yet tho), and 2 nights in the garage after our day job.

If you want to know how we did this buy Show Class Magazine, cause hopefully Tim will dig it and put it in the mag.
