Bill's Mods #2

New arrival

Jake was sick of paying/waiting to have tires mounted and balanced so... here's the new addition to Barnstorm Cycles. Mounting machine coming soon.

Micah's CB350

Tail section... check.
Narrowed clubman bars... check.
Lic plate relocation... check.
Simple exhaust... check.

Oh, and cutting the neck off the bike and welding it back on straight so it wouldn't go down the street like a crab... check.

After some wiring, valve/cam chain adjust, and draining the old gas she seems to be running right. Just need the seat

It's a start

Barnstorm sporty project

This will be a fun little bike. Info and tech coming soon.


Brooklyn Invitational 2011 was a ton of fun. Fantastic vibe, people, bikes. Great job by the White Knights In The House of Kolor, can't wait until next year.

There were a ton of people that I missed and didn't get the chance to catch up with, I blame it on social overload. As usual I didn't take nearly enough photos, here's a few I managed to capture.

Moving 100 mph

Here's the pair of sneakers that ended up on my feet this morning. I realize by pair, most would think that would mean they should match. In all honesty I'm lucky they weren't both left feet. Oh well, at least my boots at the shop were a legitimate pair.

Figures that the bending die sets that I have aren't compatible with Jakes bender. Well, mount them both up and get to work.

Shovel project

Couple pics of the customer shovel build going on at the new Barnstorm shop right now. Jake has been banging this one out, working out the details with the owner. Only small bits and pieces left on this one and it's off to powder and paint.

GRV pics

As usual, I didn't take as many pics during the Gypsy Run as I should have. Great people, really neat bikes, perfect riding. Thanks to Walter, Fritz, and all the sponsors for making this year flawless.
