Welcome to my nightmare.

Welcome to all!  I'll be posting my fabrication work, bike builds, parts for sale, and any other cool shit I can think of.  I have a website being built @, but you'll only find the home page up for now.
A little background for those of you who don't know me.  My name is Jason Roche, I have a background in metal work, or fabrication if you may.  My business name is JMR Designs, but most of my work is done under the name Special'79.  Why this name you may ask? My answer is I really don't know, a friend of mine came up with it and it stuck.  I'm making a go at running my own business. It's the hardest job I've ever had, but it rules.  I weld most of the day away, kiss my hot wife, and hug my dog all on the same piece of property.  
I build motorcycles, but I'm not a "builder".  I build 'em for myself and friends, and I don't build shit I don't like.  If you dig my work, I thank you.  If you don't dig my work, I don't care.  I sleep well at night knowing I'm not lying to myself or others.  I don't care what the "new" or "cool" trend is in motorcycles.  I'm partial to the bikes of the '60's and '70's.  I respect anyone that turns wrenches and gets their hands dirty or bloody.  I love seeing people make birdshit mig welds on metal, it takes guts to try.  I like saving something that others would throw away.  You'd know what I meant if you ever made something, took a step back from it, and couldn't keep yourself from smiling.

Just about managed to trace this blog from BC to AD. Your craft is respected. I now have the urge to return to my chicken shit welding roots & bloody my knuckles once again. Thanks for the inspiration Jason.
