The start of a fresh ride

I started a little bit of reassembly today, the tank is just coated in epoxy primer for now since I haven't decided on the the color scheme for it yet. Billy built the bars for me and Justin is handling the paint.


Had to drill out one of my forklegs. Good thing Billy has the worlds largest drill press! Super accurate, used to belong the United States Navy.

Action Cycles moving sale

JM let me know that a local 40+ year moto shop (more like a warehouse) was having a moving sale so I cruised over as fast as I could last friday to see what they had that I just couldn't live without. This shop was mostly jap oriented but if you looked hard enough you could find plenty of American and British parts.

Here's what I came out with after going to this place two days in a row.

I'll be carting some of this stuff to the swap meet in Austin this weekend.

Here's an idea of what this place is like.

Side job

I've been doing a little bit of extra work here and there. This was a fun one.

I married this awesome woman almost four years ago now and this is something she's been talking about doing for a while! I'd be lost without her!!

Progress made

This is the new tank and new sissy bar the ironhead will be cruising. The frame, tank, and fender will be painted soon and I will be putting the new front end together this weekend. Gotta love the night time grainy phone picture, I've been skipping a lot of sleep in favor of seeing this bike get back up and running.

Another Ironhead Project

These damn bikes keep showing up!!

Chris decided that he needed a little H-D in his life so this little gem was snatched off CL since it was such a damn good deal. A few changes have already been made and there's lots more to come.

The bolt on hard tail will be replaced by a weld-on as well as pretty much everything but the motor.
