nap time

so tonight steve-o stopped by the shop to do some work on the shovel chop that has been getting neglected for a while now, awesome new seat and set up the rocker arms and shafts. We need to pic up some longer banjo bolts for the external oil cross overs, but its looking good so far. I tore down the top end on my little brothers chopper. He was complaining about the base gaskets leaking. I found both exhaust valve springs broken, a completely wasted intake seal, barely any carbon on the pistons and still some nice cross hatch in the cylinders even with over 40k on the engine. Time for some beehive springs and new gaskets. Then we got some really good heavy mexican food and beers and i took a food coma. Thanks for dinner buddy.


Hey look we are still doing shit

Wanna throw a 26 on your bagger? Well buy this kit and make it happen. Gonna debut it at the v-twin expo.

My Brother

Got the linework on his sleeve finished up today, next step color.


the other night

harlan and i split out in his s-10 and drove north to go pick up a chainsaw from my old man. We took off at about ten at night, got back at 8 in the morning and went straight into work. Miserable day at work, awesome night with a buddy. We talked about how most of the people we know would have said no way to driving 450 miles in one night to go get a stupid ass saw. I'm glad we are the kind of people who will do things like this just because... why not lets go. It was a great time, we laughed at shit till the road got blurry with tears, hung out with my crazy pops for a few,and even picked up a bad ass couch. Simply enough, go do something that doesn't make sense, even if your miserable later the good time and the story you get to tell later are worth it.


Raked Bagger Frame

Yep Doing another one
As much as i love choppers, it's nice to change things up a bit from time to time.


Jesse James Vs. OCC Tonight at 9


i'm gonna watch it. Hopefully jesse gets some decent air time, but i'm suspecting that it will be mostly pissing between the old man and his kids. I can't wait to see what they bring to the table.


welded up

 sleeve details

welded up, motor dropped back in. Right now i'm playing dress up with different tanks, fenders, ect. Loving this so much more than a week ago. The loopy lower rails were kind of an accident that i turned out really cool. We loaned out our tubing bender to a buddy so i had to make due with some pre bent pieces from a previous build that didn't look quite right..

looking better already

modifying a ironhead hardtail section that has been kicking around the shop for a while to work with the evo frame. I'm goin to add a touch or stretch to the top rails, line it all up and weld it on. I like this way more than where the bike was headed before. I'm still a bit hesitant on the overall style the owner wants. But i think it can be pulled off very respectfully. I'm trying to get back in the swing of updating the site more regularly again.  I really just haven't been doing anything that is fab related lately. Just a bunch of motor builds and maintenance stuff over the last few months. But as the snow starts to hit the ground. The grinders come out and the welder warms the hands. Also i'm looking for a stock rubbermount sporty frame, If the back bone and or front down tubes are tweaked that is fine with me. As long as the rear section and lower frame is straight i'm interested. 



look mikey.... no shocks
