Long, long time ago...

That was my grandfather on the left. He sold John Deere tractors in Costa Rica. A true hustler.

I'll make it my damn self

As you may know I don't spend a dime on shit I can make myself. Take for instance this baffle I machined from some spare aluminum tubing. I turned a step to make it appear to be floating in the pipe, and I added a screen for a little more back pressure. RRRRRRIPPPPPPPPPPP.

Thruxton Speed Holes

Sprocket Cover: I bored these holes for my friend Terry's Triumph in order to gain 50hp, increase top speed to 250mph, and to help him with the ladies. I made sure the center hole is concentric with his sprocket. Check out his blog The Glass Boot and learn something useful for once in your life.

Meet Bubba

He chews fuckin everything, including my new FMA shirt. I taught him how to swim for that one. Now I get home and he's doing backstrokes in my pool.

Ultimate Roadtrip

This guy knows what he wants and how to get it there. I snapped this  yesterday on my way home. Towing a kayak, a cooler on the other side and plenty of storage, he was still zipping through traffic. Judging by the smile on this dude's face it could either have been the start of an epic adventure or the glorious end to a great weekend.

Smooth Operator

I met this cool cat Sander over on KZrider and he wanted me to make him some velocity stacks for his Mikuni 29mm smoothbore carb set. Not your everyday streetbike, his no nonsense KZ is punched out to 1075cc with all the goodies, including web cams, ported & polished Larry Cavanaugh head, AIRTECH fiberglass and so much more. I made him two sizes which  after dyno testing will prove which set will give the most bang. Check out his ride....badass.

Who wants it?

I made this friendly stamp for the baddest leatherworker I know, Duane Ballard. Get your seat done and a matching tool roll or a spiffy new wallet today!!!

Just the thing for Outlaws and Speed Demons


How about a BRASS KNUCKLE pull start lever for your solenoid-mounted starter switch?
Or an aluminum fork brace for your Narrow Glide canyon carver?

It's HOT so....

I've been meaning to install an oil cooler on my whip and I finally made some time this week to make the rear fitting. Parts bought include a left side oil cooler from a BMW r12 or something like that, an 18mm banjo-fitting from a Lexus turbo intercooler and some AN-6 fittings to connect to some 3/8 braided hose and I'm in biznass.
