Bat box

This took most of the day tuesday. Came out real slick. It will hold a battery , rectifier and regulator .


This was a photo and video shoot for shwood sunglasses .   The day started off smooth with a call time of 12pm  until I tried to fire up the bike. It was a crispy 30 degrees and I haven't started her in a while. cleaned the plugs and I was on my way. Not the best day for riding , there was ice on the ground where the sun didn't hit.

Vintage dirt video

 I shot and edited this video of my friends racing in last weekend's vintage dirt race. These old bikes sure don't look comfortable to ride. Might as well be a hardtail .

Houston.. we have a roller

 I spent half a day fitting this Xl 125 front wheel on the XS 650
 Made some bars yesterday.
This is always a exciting part of the builds, it starts to look like a motorcycle again, it's second life. If only bikes could talk, would they complain about there new look or say thanks for saving me. Either way there getting cut up, haha.

Cb 500 is sold and headed to Texas

The CB sold before X mas . Had to wait for the Holiday's to calm down before it could get shipped. Beau Gonzales from Texas is the new owner of this bike. Thanks for the business Beau! hope you enjoy the bike.

Happy new year!

 We went back to the hangover scramble this year. We went to bed around 2am  kinda drunk and woke up at 6am and was racing at 8am. It was rough, and hour long race. Felt very sick after but it was really fun.

The one motorcycle show is coming soon

 Thor and Greg came over to the shop to film a bit for the one motorcycle show . They brought over some lights and a RED camera which are kind of a big deal. The video came out awesome and now I need to start building something for the show.       THE ONE SHOW VIDEO
