Making Mid Controls .....

Using a set of rubber mount Sporty controls to start,
I cut the mount ends off to get.....
This piece as the base for the new mid controls.
I then drilled a 5/8 hole in the middle of the new base piece
which I welded some 5/8 round stock into
Then cut the same piece off of the other Sporty control, and tapped the holes to 3/8-16. Cleaned the paint off and bolted the two together.
Welded the whole assembly to the frame where I wanted the controls
and got to heating and.....
bending to the desired hieght.
THE RESULT mid controls.

Puttin' Around

So my good friend Scotty Murnan is always bragging about riding the beautiful backroads of Indiana.  Well honestly I never knew how beautiful it was till I saw these pics.  I thought they were beautiful but at the same time kinda took it as a challenge.  Scotty is riding around just snapping pics of his scoot and things he prob see's all the time but to me in Eastern NC I dont get to see it at all.  So I took the time to go riding in the mist left over cold weather from Hurricane Sandy and took some pics.  But since his pics are epic, Scotty gets the first of hopefully many in a Puttin' Around Series.

Another Score

So a customer at the dealership came in and informed me that he took his Harley Davidson springer off and replaced it with a DNA springer.  The guy was willing to sell it to me at a good price and I took full advantage of it.

The Rock 2012

So we departed for The Rock Friday morning and the young guys took the backroads and goofed off at gas stations, and stalled motorcycles in the streets that caused Russell to run over Kyle which was hilarious.
 Kyle is ok from his wreck.
 Russell got a new seat.

 Dave-o had to work on his bike.
 Drag Racing is KOOL

 Burn Outs

 Sam decided to play on the Panhead.

 Scotty and Dave-o working on Leah's bike.
 So we got into a competition in who could put the sticker the highest, they went pretty high.
 All of us enjoying the racing.
Me and Sam, I didn't take many pics this weekend cause I was having too much fun and had my GoPro out, bad thing is I have no clue how to look at what I filmed with my GoPro, if you have any advice please help me out so I can post the videos and pics I took with it.
