New build

I had a XS650 sitting around so I started chopping it up. It will be another Scwhinn style bike. Trying to mount up a 21" front wheel and cutting tabs off for now till the new tank shows up then its frame building time.

Oregon dirt biking rules

 Got 5 bikes on the flatbed, new record!
 Travis jumping over a tree

 Trav cutting some wood for one of the coldest nights we have experienced in a long time. Woke up in the middle of the night to all these popping sounds, it was all of our water freezing in there containers . Needless to say the next morning getting out of the tent was brutal . And we had very little water to drink. Oh and my battery's in my truck were dead, good times.

KZ sold

The KZ I was working on sold just before thanksgiving to Chris down In long beach Ca so I decided to deliver it and have turkey down south. It took me three days to get down there taking my time un winding after the build. Saw my family ,friends and got a couple days surf in. A short but sweet trip.
Thanks for the business Chris.

Woodland vintage race weekend

 The pits were packed . It was the first race of the season and there were alot of old bikes to look at.

 I had a camera on my helmet which I ended up getting my crash. This guy ran into the back of me and we both went down hard. I broke a peg and had to push it back to the pits, wouldn't start
I kept it pinned and passed a few people and snagged first in my category .

Getting ready to race

 Tavis "the champ" Gardner got his vintage race weapon all finished just in time for the weekends race.
