Grease bus tank.

 This is the inside of a tank for   the tubes running through the tank will have hot coolant running through them heating the vegetable oil making it less viscous so the diesel bus has a better time burning it. The center pieces are baffles so the grease doesn't splash around so bad.

Bigger is better?

 So this is how the story go's.... I didn't have much room for motorcycles with vegetable oil ,tool box's, gas , ramps coolers ect. in there.  So I put my bed up for sale on craigslist and no one called for 3 weeks . Then I got my first call and he wanted it right away so I had to go into flat bed mode .
 Squeezed my truck into his garage and..
 Hooked a come-along to the bed and the rafters in his garage and got it off.
 I'll miss you o'l bed.
 Bad boy!
 Here is austin next to his truck that we flat bed'd about a year ago.
 This box was for sale for $400 brand new. When the transition was made and they forklifted it on his truck,  reality set in , the thing is huge and is 1200 pounds, We were both saying "what did we just do"? So I might be re-thinking my box truck idea.
So this is what I have today, just the frame. I need to get the decking on soon and get my grease tank in, I've been driving around on diesel lately and ... well , it suck's, so expensive.

 Out in the middle of nowhere
 Airtime airshow.
This place was unreal, the photo's don't give it justice. It's 110,000 acres of off road fun , every turn was a man made burm.  It's like a skatepark for motorcycles. we'll be back , oh yes.

A couple days .

 I've been waiting on parts for Kyle's harley, some showed up so it's time to get started . This will be my first harley build so I'm pretty excited. Bought some firestone coker tires that are going to look great with this "71"
 Painted the walls and organized the shop a bit one day. It was getting a little cluttered and clutter drives me nuts. I spend so much time in here I needed to make it inviting.
 Here is two pics of huge dead salmon. All there heads and guts were missing, the opposite of what you want out of a fish, it was the weirdest thing still cant figure it out.

 The trails were wet and slick clay mud didn't help jason on this hill.

Jordans creek

 Travis cut his day short when the bearings in his rear hub blew up.
 Joe helping Zac get his bike out of the woods.
 It was slick out here. Zac slipped out around this corner and flew into the woods, you can barely see him in this photo.
Ended the day with some beers and guns. A nice little sunday.

Another bike I wish I could keep.

 This is the best part of my job, I love the build up with fresh paint, clean parts and I get to see my vision come together.
It will have a black seat . Ginger at New church moto got in an accident a few days ago so I will have to wait a bit for some upholstery. She does such an amazing job on these seats i'm willing to wait.
 The batt box came out so clean. Batt ,rectifier and regulator in a tight package.
Cleaned the engine and changed some gaskets. Getting the engine back in today . This bike will be for sale soon for $4000   I will most likely be transporting it to So Cal from Oregon .     707-888-1836
