Lower that thang.

Lower that stock bayonet filler neck so it sits down all tight and pretty.

Old time hockey

Hot Summer New England weather can be handled a couple ways.  Go for a cool night time ride on the bike or walk into a nice cold rink to play some hockey.  Both of them make you feel young again if even just for a little while.

Dennis's ironhead

Getting the bones all set on this build.  Just picked up the springer front end from Jay and Wayne at Acme Choppers and I couldn't be happier.

BF5 video by Jake Krotje of FlyingDutchman Co.

My friend Jake Krotje put this video together from some footage he took at Born Free 5 this year.  The day was a blur for me so it was good to see this to refresh my memory.  Now I just need to get back out to CA so I can learn some metal shaping skills from him:)

Buell Derake

Went down to Mike 47's place last week to do some evil to a sportster engine cradle.  One customized 47 Industries evo sportster hardtail, the stock engine cradle, some backbone and front leg craftiness, a Buell neck, and we end up with a de-raked up and out hard tail frame to fit my Lightning lump into.  Thanks for the added brainpower from Mike and some frame spec sharing by Andy Carter at Pangea Speed.  You two fellas are rulers!
