After a 3 day bout with the stomach flu, an exploding molar, super fun dental work, and finishing up some small fab jobs, I'm finally ready to bust out some tank work. Robin, Oliver, Daniel, and Ros are in the tank lineup. This coming week will prove to be much more productive.

These are the bars off my shovelhead. I've decided to make a new set once I put her back together. They work well for guys (or gals) running no front brake with a m/c, due to how narrow they are. They are pre drilled for one of those cheapie push button horn/kill switch deals. I cleaned 'em up pretty good, but they'll rust if you don't coat them with somethin'. Anyone want them for $80 + shipping? SOLD

Here's a display I made a while back for Eastern Boarder. I've got an identical case sitting in my shop that I've been procrastinating on forever. I've got about 2 hours worth of work left on it and it can be delivered. I can't even use the "snow in my driveway" excuse anymore... slacker.

Here's a couple pics of some bars I built this morning. I'm not the first and definitely won't be the last to build some rabbit ears, but here's my take on them. These bars are for sale if there's any interest. Constructed from 1" .120 wall steel dom tubing, 3 1/2" mount spacing.

While I was working hard in WA snowboarding and skateboarding, my wife was having fun painting our bedroom and setting up a nice clean office space for me. I still have quite a bit of art to hang, but at least I didn't have to paint. She even let me have her Knoll desk. You rule baby!

I have a friend that shall remain nameless, this is his Wassell banana tank. This tank was brought to me with a shitty spray can paint job, a rather large dent with bondo jammed in it, and a tunnel area that looked like it was cut out with a hammer and chisel. I'm doing my best to resurrect this tank from the grave. It's unfortunate that my friend will probably spray bomb it when I'm done.

During our WA trip, our crew visited our friend Terry Parker and his girl Vanessa for some pepperoni pizza and Busch lights. Upon arrival to his Wenatche residence, it was brought to our attention that Vanessa wouldn't shake our hands when we were introduced. In her defense it wasn't because she didn't want to shake our hands, it was because she couldn't. Terry mistakingly cut the tip of her finger off in a door jamb incident. The pictures I saw were gnarly.
Much of the time at Terry's was spent in his garage, checking out his shovelhead and Kawasaki S3400 projects. He's got all sorts of cool stuff stashed everywhere, he's a complete whirlwind. I need to spend more time there next trip and pick his brain more. Shout out to TCP, Vanessa, and the four legged furies Ducati and Izzy.

Tim at Kwikwerks made me a handfull of these seat spring bungs. They fit 1" .120 wall dom tubing so you can cut and cope a piece of tubing and weld them in for a custom set up. A set of these will run you $25 plus shipping, or trade me something cool. Thanks for the shirt Tim, I'll bounce one of mine your way.
