I redesigned and just finished another batch of stacks. I also made some tooling to speed the process up a bit. I will now include hose clamps that use snapping teeth instead of the conventional worm-drive ones. Pictures are on the way. My camera is not wanting to open up for me so I think it's off to the store to see what I can get. Are there any digital cameras made in the USA? It would be nice to have a camera that lasts longer than 9 months. China sucks.

I got a request the other day to make some brass footpegs to the shape that reminds me of a slapper. I was pretty happy theY way the came out. Heavy as shit though!! I do not like adding unnecessary weight if I don't have to, but that's just me. Hope you enjoy them, Rudy. STORE-BOUGHT'S FOR SUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!11

My original vision of blue flake with a bronze frame didn't quite work together but I wasn't gonna stop riding just for a paint job- fuck that...Here's a look at a honda with a paint scheme that will work better and I can still follow the flow of the indents on the sporty tank with some stripes...

Had a birthday this past weekend with cake, ice cream, hats, the whole nine yards. Started with about 8 cases of beer and ended up with 10. WTF?? I know I had my share but some friends didn't show which bummed me out. Presents? All I wanted was a fucking massage. My back's been so fucked up lately I didn't even ask for the happy ending, just an honest massage. Didn't get that either but I did get a gift card to the GAP and Home Depot- maybe I'll buy a pair of boxers and a shovel. What did mom always say about having clean underwear? A good stretch last night helped though; just need to do it more often and drink less cuz the hangovers last longer the older you get.

Shortening forks isn't as easy sometimes, especially when you're dealing with a bmw and its freaky-deaky internals. I cut 2" off and re-bored and threaded the ID which only took me about an hour and 1/2 but compared to my forks which I just made spacers underneath the dampeners- took only 5 minutes. Here's a nice close-up inside the lathe.

Que pasa people, hope everyone enjoyed their holidays despite the horrible way the year 2009 treated everyone. Got back a while ago, helping out a friend with his wiring.
Ahh germans and their bmws. Actually 1/2 mexican but I'm not telling anyone, oops. Here is a pic of this black beauty. It was a little tricky since you need to keep the charge light or else, well, it won't charge. I threw entire loom away and started fresh with new fuseholders and relays. All exposed wires are black/white cloth-covered from www.lowbrowcustoms.com which contribute to his black-on-black theme.
