New Lid

Went to Shovelhead Sam's Asbury Park Adult Clubhouse to check out his mummified Possum and Harley Davidson golf cart.  Then, Shane, Shovelhead Sam and I rolled over to Greer's to pilfer through his incredible treasures.  Shane got a ridiculous cast cross and I picked up a helmet.  Thanks, Greer!  Have fun in Hawaii.  You'll be missed.

Classic Cycles. Baptistown, NJ

Hit up Classic Cycles on Thursday to talk with Dave about some parts I needed and some issues I'm having with the Trump build.  He's an incredible wealth of knowledge and always works the fair deal.  If you have a British Motorcycle, go there. 

The moment I walk through the door I go into motorcycle sensory overload.  Tons of cool vintage and new parts.   
Need a motor?  Dave's got 'em.

This tracker is crazy.  Photos won't do it justice.  I think its got 17's front and back with Maxxis dirt track tires.  Really nice one off parts made by Dave and Mike at 47 Industries.

 Box of parts all cleaned, sandblasted and degreased, etc...
 Hello Firestone Deluxe Champion
First run of powdercoat.  Came out great.


 Whipped up this little oil tank.
 Made some seat brackets for the bates.  Forgot to take a picture but they're not very exciting anyway.  Rubber mounted the tank.
 Took a break to put in a little time on the basement bowl.

Laced rear wheel.  No matter how many times I do this I still stare at it and think it's wrong.

Started the '69 Triumph

Had a enough parts from the last project to start a new one.

 Motor looked pretty bad.
 Hey, who took a dump in the primary?!
 Clutch plates stuck together. Pretty sure that won't work.
 Blocked sludge trap...

evil in league with satan

Before I stumble off to the High Life and couch to watch football I figured I'd put this up.  One of my favorite underground rippers posted by the best skate mag (RIP).  Plus, who doesn't love Venom?  If you don't understand why the last trick is epic you probably don't skate.  Anyway, go Giants.

1975 Honda CB550

$200 got me this rust bucket.  Built on a budget.  I did everything.  It was painful at times.  Spent hours upon hours in the junkyard to save cash.  Time is free I guess.  Spray painted tank.  I even made that seat and covered it.  I made the pegs from scrap.  The side covers from old baking pans.  Cherry bomb exhaust.  Traded some welding for the tires.  The tail light and speedo are crappy chinese junk.  They work most of the time.  One thing about this bike, it always runs.  Fucking Hondas.

1977 Triumph Bonneville
