The Chopper Underground Bike Build Off

The build off begins 1/1/11 and lasts till 3/31/11. If you want to see a great bunch of guys build a great variety of choppers in their backyards, kitchens, and garages click the link TCU . There seems to be a bunch of Honda CB's in this years BBO but there is also a couple Indians, Harleys, some Suzukis and Yamahas and even a Triumph. And I can almost bet (just my gut talking here) the winner will probably end up in The Horse Back Street Chopper Magazine with TCU having a monthly article in it. So come on over join TCU and watch some great bikes being created.
Here's some early pics of what they have.

4 Days Till Christmas

Still No Bike Updates

But I did get the rust fixed on the Durango, so once I hit the Megabucks I will get it inspected and registered. I am hoping tonight to get out into the garage to do some work on a snowthrower that was left off to be repaired by a customer of mine. Then maybe onto the CB750 this holiday weekend.

Ready For Winter

That's what I've been doing this past weekend. Put the lawn furniture away, cover the camper, snow thrower on the rider mower, motorcycles in the shed, blah blah blah. Anyway I am basically set for winter. I still have to fix some rust on the Durango then it's back to bikes. Oh yeah I want to build a cab cover for my snow thrower too, like the one below. I am thinking some conduit and clear heavy plastic.

Mike's Sportster Is Alive Again!!!

We got it running on Sunday and it sounded good. Still need some final adjustments. The smoke is from the oil that was everywhere after the teardown and rebuild so ( In the words of Ande) No Worries.

Food Poisoning

So I made the wife and myself some taco's on Saturday and the meat must have been bad. We both spent all night Saturday and most of the day Sunday taking turns for the bathroom, lots of fun. Don't think I'll eat Mexican food for a couple months after this weekend. So needless to say nothing got done in the garage.

About Friggin' Time !!!!!

The 1991 Honda Accord is DONE! After searching the interweb all day yesterday and finding about 10 pages of suggestions we got it. My wife drove it to work yesterday and said she would be by my work to swap with my truck (we work around the corner from each other) because it was running horrible with no power. I was baffled because it was rattling a little on my test drive the night before but nothing bad.
I started it up when I left work and WTF it ran like dogshit! When it got to 50mph it ran good but no power getting going. One of the suggestions was a bad valve cover gasket that allowed oil into the plug reservoir. I checked and sure enough 3 of 4 had oil in them. $34 later and a set of plugs too, went to start it and it was better but still hesitating. I was inside the car revving the motor and my buddy Steve was looking under the hood when he said shut it down. I did and he pointed to the plug wire that had popped off the distributor cap.........Whoops.
When we hooked that up it ran better (obviously) but still had a shake while you were stopped foot on brake and car in drive. We then upped the RPM's another 100 and BAM! no rattle, runs smooth, bout damn time. It even passed the wife's driving test. Whew! And I am still only $575 into it all together and clean trade in is $1175 so I didn't do bad.
That means I get to do rust repair on the Durango now Yaaayy.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010



Well I spent most of the afternoon Sunday and Monday replacing the motor mounts on my wife's Accord because they were bad. I was also thinking that it would fix the vibration problem in the engine compartment. It was the biggest pain in the ass to get the rear mount replaced, probably the worst thing I have ever had to do on a car. Anyway it didn't fix the problem it is still vibrating right up the steering column and making all kinds of rattles. So the search continues...............................I'll keep you updated. I might just enter it into one of these!

Weekend Sexy Ass

The COLD Ride In

Took my Sportster to work yesterday because it was going to be 51 degrees later. It was 36 when I left the house and I wore two pairs of gloves, my leather inside an old pair of winter ones, would have been better the other way around but the leather wouldn't stretch enough. Stopped once on the 25 mile ride in to get feeling back to my throttle hand fingers. And well by the time I rode home at 4pm it was no longer 51 out and the sun was well below the trees. So unless I get good weather during the day and I can ride during the day I can say it's officially winter and time to turn the heater on and work on bikes. I have to work on cars this weekend and have to get them DONE as it's supposed to reach 61 (yeah right) and I have to work outside in the driveway when I do cars. So I want to take advantage of the warmish weather while I can. Here's a pic of the Sporty from a year ago several things have changed and I can't believe I don't have a recent pic but this will have to do.

Got In The Garage

Got some work done tonight, not much, but something. Finally unstrapped the CB750 frame from the table and flipped it to finish the welding underneath. Then I rewelded my seat on the Sportster that was done 3 years ago when I first got the welder (wasn't pretty). Mike was over and he managed to get the tank mounted Frisco style, the chain on and some other minor things. Oh yeah and we got a new wick in the kerosene heater and fired it up. It was a little cool tonight but will be getting colder soon enough. Bought the heater off Craigslist 3 years ago for $10 and it was well worth it. Here's a pic of it and if anyone is looking for a way to heat a garage without hooking a furnace up or heavy electrical you should check it out. Corona DK23

I guess it's a good thing most of their bikes are for show and not the road after seeing this.

1 Down 1 To Go

Well my wife's new/old Honda Accord passed inspection yesterday so that leaves the Durango. I have to fix some rust holes on the rocker panel and I have decided to undercoat the lower body panels instead of matching paint this time. I guess this will be my weekend project to get it ready as it needs inspection in November. And just so you all know, I HATE body work, so these past few weeks not working on bikes have been bad enough but to have to do something I don't like makes it even worse. The upside is when this is over I should be clear from vehicle work for a while.

Finally Did Something On The CB750

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I was busy all week and had to do some work at work. HAHAHA Anyway Wednesday night I got out in the garage again to do some grinding on the CB's welds. Got them mostly done just have to finish some parts with a file and others need a spot or two more of welding done. No real pics just this one of my hand and the grinder to prove I am doing something.

And oh yeah that slacker that hangs around my garage, talking shit about my parts and then taking them for his own build showed up again to do some work on his Ironhead. He stole yet another part, this time a Harley bag, for his electrics. If you want to see more of his bike (that is built with most of my parts) check out Mike's blog. Here is a pic of his bike, it's almost ready to go and just in time for the snow. HAHAHAHA

Ronny James Dio

As a kid I was (and still am) into heavy metal and Dio was in my top 3 always. I had his all his cassettes (for those young guys a cassette was like a CD is today) and always had at least 2 in my car at all times.He was more than a singer, he was a story teller and brought the song to life. RIP Ronny.

More Work On The Accord

Still no bike updates as I am trying to get my wife's car and Durango's rust holes cleaned up for inspection next month. I did a bunch of domestic type things around the house but also got to cutting the rust (see pic above rear wheel well) out and metal welded in. I then used bondo to level it out. Maybe tomorrow night I will get to sanding some down. Steve showed up too with his Montero and we welded some patches on his frame. He had 3 holes just behind the drivers rear tire. We cleaned them up and made some patches then welded them and undercoated the whole frame. His car is due for inspection this month. Anyway here is my son acting like (as his shirt says) a Fruit Loop in front of the car I was working on.

Mike's Bike Got "Customized"

Did this to my buddy Mike's bike because I know how much he hates LEDs and neons on bikes. I got a deal at the local Autozone $30 worth the lights for $6 and just had to do it. All we have to do is get the transmission together and it's ready to go. HAHAHAHAHAHA
