Tim Conder

This is one talented dude. Rare that someone has the artistic ability AND mechanical skills to pull off what he does. When I lived in Seattle for the second time (late 90's) I used to see an old wagon driving around Wallingford or Woodland Park area with probably the best flame job I have seen. Years later I saw a pic of that same car on the internet and about shit myself. It was Tim's. Watch this little video, crank the shit outta the sound. If this doesn't stir some kind of emotion and a smile for ya, your in it for the wrong reasons. Give up, find a new hobby. The look on his face says it all, the best feeling in the world.

Seat update

I finally pulled the trigger and glued the cover to the pad. Not bad for a first go round, but not sure if Im happy with it. At least I made it myself, and learned how to make some pretty killer pleats in the process. An old leather jacket that doesn't fit makes a good source for cheap leather! yeah I know its backwards assholes

Now you see it

Now you don't

I know my way around a chainsaw, Im certified at the highest level for tree falling. That being said, this thing scares the shit out of me!! Walked into a friends living room for the fights last night, and he had this propped up next to the wood stove. Its HUGE! There's a handle on the tip at the end of the bar....I really hope thats not for some dude to hold onto while cutting? Gnar.


Coke bottle from the 50's? I found buried out in the woods. Perfect condition. Its crazy what you find waaaay out in the woods. I have 2 of these, both have Wenatchee Wa on the bottom. Kinda cool.

Melting Metal

 Having a new TIG with no comfortable place to weld is lame, so I spent the day gathering supplies. Got started tacking together, hopefully finish tomorrow. Huge thanks to T.P. for the metal hookup!!

Long Week

 Started out Saturday night with a friend calling at a strange hour, to inform me that a friend of ours was killed in an avalanche. If you have never received "The Call" like this I envy you. Never gets easy, just easier to bury deep within for a later surprise visit. He died doing what he loved on a beautiful day, couldn't hope for a better end. Wish he coulda been around for a while longer still, only 28 yrs old. Fuck nursing homes. Rest in Peace Dan, you will be missed.

The highlight of the week was driving between Redmond Oregon and Biggs. This may sound strange to folks that have driven this. There is nothing but sky and high desert. I cruised the work rig well above the speed limit, cranked up some Isis, and took it all in. The scenery is wheat fields, straight to huge dark grey sky with the Cascade mountains in the distance. The 35mph wind was blowing sagebrush across the road for some effect. It ruled. I can't wait to get on two wheels again. It's Thursday, the work week is over, and my brain has been bouncing off the rev limiter. Time to hit the shop, get better at welding, and get the Pan closer to life.

Special 79

Killer Fab work, great little tutorial vids, all around cool shit.  Thanks for the link J, hope to meet ya if you come out to visit TP or Gorm. Go HERE NOW


 I've been extremely busy lately, so I apologize for lagging! I snagged this from an older thread on The Jockey Journal. Wasn't so much into Indian Larry's newer stuff, but there was tons of skill and creativity behind his bikes. This is an older one, and for me this bike kills. Tons of work put into it, but it looks pretty simple. Nice stance, and the paint idea is one of my favorites. Just a mean little bike. Anyway, check it out, and hopefully I will be back shortly with some progress pics of the Pan!
