Working on an Ironhead

Had to work out some timing issues and clean a carb for a friend, had the wife help. The bike is running good now, as she said "it just needed a woman's touch".

Nice Bike

This bike is being built by a guy (Metalho) on TCU for the Biker Build Off they have every year. Just about everything on it is custom (and not that Harley chrome dodad custom, I don't allow bikes like that on here). He has made everything from the frame jig to make his own frame to this friggin' awesome brass valve tail light.

Here's a pic of the bike, not quite complete but damn it's great looking and a link to check out the whole build if your interested because this bike will/should end up in a magazine.

Almost Done

This is my friend Mike's bike we have been working on in the garage since about November '09. It's a '73 Ironhead, the seat is a solo now and he has window bars on it instead of the drags, I will post an updated pic soon. I am going tomorrow to get a coil for it and it should be running and terrorizing the neighborhood.

Welcome To The Garage

WTF, I was thinking today as I was sitting on my ass doing nothing at work, why not start my own damn blog. I want it to be mostly about my garage and all the shit that happens in it on a daily basis. It's a small 1 car garage with a lot of stuff packed in but only the necessary shit, tools, welder, torch, micro lathe and the like. And it gets used a lot, we work on motorcycles (there's 4 in it right now), I get lawnmowers for free fix them and make some extra cash (thanks Craigslist), and plenty of cars. Anyway here's a pic of it, I built a motorcycle table from CHEP pallets and load them with a set of ramps.
