Can you hear the thunder??

  Big thanks to Russel from Down Under for supporting the cause of not leaving your bike stock. Here's a closeup of his EFI Sporty with a polished BUBBA. A clean setup with an aftermarket backing plate and breathers from Benchmark of course.
  Now when arriving at  Born Free 3, look for me and my buddy Craze from Eternal Combustion. We'll be the cats with beers to share and stories to tell about the 3 bikes we're bringing in. So stop by and introduce yourself and enjoy this magical day although the wizards and dragons won't be there unless under a couple coats of  aging clear.

2 Days for Born Free.....

Here's a slideshow from last year and a video I shot of the after party at Alex's Bar. Beautiful Buzzards playing...

Rear wheel real deal

 Yup, that's a Moto Guzzi rear shaft drive wheel with drum brake, so why convert over to sprocket for a '47 Knuckle? If  I have to answer that question, you just don't get why we do the things we do. First off the hubcap and cutting a 4" hole for the outside sprocket spacer to hold via a machined flange on the underside. Next, the inner spacer that holds hub to splined drive hub. And finally the sprocket spacer which will accept a custom 50 tooth 7075 Aluminum sprocket made to order.

Face Down Ass up

Super DerBee in the never-ending quest for total awesomeness, my buddy Craze hands me this NOS Superior derby cover and makes a small request: make him a badass air cleaner for his Super B. Oh and add this and that and what not?!?!?!   So here it is all worked out and ready to gently rub against his right leg like a faithful dog.
I think we're getting close.............

Save the Trees

Two jobs from the same dude fell on my lap with the task of putting in an ignition switch in place of the riser holes (using clipons) on a 35mm Narrow Glide. The next one: an old 41mm narrow tree setup that needed the riser holes repositioned to 3-1/2", spacers made, and some sexy curves added to an otherwise square chunk of steel. Those are getting chrome-plated and if you are going to Born-Free....of course you're going....we will be in the Eternal Combustion booth, so stop by and say hello.

Go out and make stuff...

If you bothered to notice, I'm redoing some stuff on the KZ, from the bars to the tank to the seat which will move up and down via a fox airshock. Here is the fulcrum bracket positioned on the crosssbar which a pair of levers attach the seat to the shock. Stay tuned for more pics.

Whiskey Throttle Saloon

Not only beautiful, these Biltwell throttles are the best in these industry and priced right. So order online or if you're in the area, stop by the saloon/headquarters. Well thought-out products are what these guys are all about and I'm proud to have been a part in the development of these twist-the-wrist fun makers. I think I had a little too much whiskey. Check out BILTWELL now.
