Moto GP/Indy Mile, only 3 months away

Sophie and I got some ice cream then took a walk around downtown. As we walked past Buca Di Beppo I noticed racing jerseys painted on these statues.
What, no Team Honda???

Memorial Day Progress

I had an almost full day to work in the garage today. I got the Honda put back together and fired. Miraculously the dash lights started working. Un-miraculously the carbs are STILL totally fucked. I used new boots with wide clamps. But to no avail, the motor races like it did before as if it has an air leak. Ugh, I'm about ready to sell the damn thing and let another guy have a crack at it.

The Sporty contiues to take shape nicely. I decided to try a new strategy; start at the front and work my way back.
The angle on the pinch bolt bracket wasn't working with the dual ring headlight. So, I painted the aluminum eybrow Crazy Orange style and reattached the stock set up.
I rewired the stock controls, wrapped the wires in friction tape and put on the Jack Hammer grips.
I'm pretty stoked with my progress, even if I am a little behind schedule. It's all coming together just as I had envisioned; a rideable, traditional mild custom with some Japanese influences. Right on...

After my bike is done...

I'm gonna re-focus on music for the summer; singing and writing with the goal of recording a new demo. I sound like this:

No shit.

This summer I wanna do as much good stuff as I possibly can.

Rocker's Reunion 2011

The title work on the Ironhead won't be clear until the 20th. I switched tack and tried to resolve the ignition on the Honda to no avail. So, I made it to the show late and took osme pics. I would have liked to have seen more choppers, but I was pleasantly surprised by the volume and high quality of street bikes.

I am looking forward to a summer filled with riding, shows and my bros.

Weekend Update

With the wheels on the project is really taking shape.
I'd like to get it sitting lower ala Crazy Orange,

Relocating the top shock mount and cutting the fork tubes will happen at some point. But until then I will keep plugging away to have it on the road asap.

About Me

My photo
An unfocused dilettante. I'm not half bad. Overall a very good yegg and a wrong guy in an increasingly right world.
