Digg

If you are building a digger start here. Arlen Ness, Frank Kaisler collection nabbed off the Chop Cult. I LOVE diggers, especially with a lean prism tank, no, not a stubby coffin tank. Less sixbends, more digger!

Almost forgot

Got this in the mail a coupla weeks ago, get yourself one!

Beaver


Hill. One of the best rides around here, perfectly banked uphill smooth pavement, with perfectly linked left and right handers. On a side note the KZ got an oil and filter change, and some fresh K&N's. Who knows how long its been since the oil was changed in that thing!? The Emgo pod's that were on it were well over 10 years old....top end acceleration was shit, was falling on its face. Now it breathes like it should, and if you have ever ridden an old KZ you know that sound when it starts sucking in gobs of air and the Kerker is rippin' ....Pulls hard at 90+ But I still got run down by some dude on a BMW adventure bike.

Local Show



The Toecutter called this afternoon and reminded me about a local bike show goin on. Buttoned up the carbs on the KZ and rode down. Fairly unorganized, but that was to be expected. He entered his Buell chop and the white bike posted in the vid below, both nailing down 1st place ribbons, not bad! Funny thing was nobody knew what the hell they were, and how much fabrication went into em. Lots of tribal tat, pleather vest, white sneaker wearin' kooks. The bikes above are all owned by the same dude, he also had the cleanest early CB750 I have seen. Spotless. I had seen this red flatty at least 15 years ago in the middle of nowhere, random guy wearing moccasins, came outta nowhere, grabbed something at the local rural general store, and putted back the way he came. I couldn't believe it was still around, ghost bike. I was tasked with riding Toecutters Buell chop back to the house...that bike straight up hauls ass! There is absolutely no "scene" in our area, pretty nice. We missed Born Free, but it was cool seeing what comes out of the woodwork locally.

Schwinng!

Checked out a random garage sale, and found this Schwinn lurking. I haven't ever seen one with a sissy bar like this? The guy was trying to say he had offers and wanted too much for it. Damn. He also had a killer radio flyer hot rod go kart, slammed with huge kart meats on the back, 8 HP engine. Kept looking deeper and found he has 2 challengers, a 57 chev, 63 bug, 60 something camaro, 55 chev, it was nuts!

oops

Figures, the very last nut to be tightened and POP! There goes my exhaust collar. I usually keep it mellow at the shop, but this one pissed me off. Did some careful welding and it's back on the road.
