Someday I will build one of my own.

Well the inspection finally ran out on Saturday. I drove my son to school on Monday and told him the Honda was going to the scrap yard after I drop him off. I went home my wife got her jacket on to follow me there. I backed it out of the driveway and put it in drive and BAM-Shutter-Dead. The timing belt blew apart and with it having an interference motor probably blew itself up... right in front of my house. So I lost a little money because I had the scrap yard pick it up but it beat spending hours borrowing a trailer, winch it on drive there, winch it off. It was funny because in this pic he pulled it on the wrecker with it in park so the tires were squealing and it looked like the car was fighting to the very end LOL. Now I am officially driving the F250 in the background.

Had to cut the neck down on the trike because it was about 3" longer than a standard bike length. So this is what I took out.
Then I cut the cup bearing part off and welded it back on. I also had to add a piece to close in the open tube.
He seems pretty happy. Next up is to take apart the weed whacker and figure out the brackets.

I thought of you when I saw the free offer for this. Now that you own a Harley again and are looking for stickers for the Jeep... never mind your a SOA supporter... Man this sticker has got to be your holy grail. Just let me know when you want me to bring it to work for you.

With the three wheeler bike. I got my hands on a 20" bicycle for a cheap price of $15 on CL. The old front end was 16" so this lifted it a bit. We were watching a show on extreme sports and they were showing off road skateboarding where they replaced the regular wheels with bigger ones that will handle rocks and things. I talked with my son and told him if we did the same he could use the bike everywhere instead of just the pavement and he liked the idea. I will probably get some pneumatic wheels but put the lawn mower ones on for looks. Plus the new front end looks killer with the shocks and bigger tire. But the best is for last..... we got a weed whacker for free yesterday and all I can see is the motor mounted under that crossbar....... oh this is going to be badass.
If you could read his mind... "Come on Dad is it done YET!"

OK so here is what I have... A bike/skateboard/scooter. My son dragged this out of the river by our house and wants to fix it. It has a cool set of Z bars and a 16" front wheel. It goes into a wish bone with two flat areas for your feet. Under them are about 2" wide skateboard wheels. We have already broke it down, I put it back a little for the pic. I am going to strip the rust, find a kids 16" bike for the forks and front tire and have already gone to Salvation Army for a set of inline skates for the rear wheels. Got CCM skates for $2.50... that's 8 wheels I am going to double them up for stability. The other 4 are going to be used as chain tensioners and such on bikes. Anyway the only thing readable is the name Pacific. I researched and can find no other Pacific bike that looks remotely like this... anybody have any idea when this came out or what it's called?

Had the two and a half days off work and did shit loads around the house. Did the normal clean the gutters, floors, under the fridge and stove, and yard work. But I also worked on her frame for the CB750. It is done! Finished welding, filling, primer, paint and cleared. I will be posting more about it as I put it back together.
We also took the kitchen table that was about 6 years old... and with an 8 year old son it was beat up. We sanded it down and refinished it. Came out damn good.

Will I have a job to go to next Tuesday or not?!?!? Hope they can get the budget done but I don't think they will. This is what I picture Washington D.C. looks like.
Plus a quote I like.
“This is an astoundingly irresponsible way to govern,” Mr. Hagel said, adding that a fully functioning military went beyond its uniformed forces to its civilian personnel. “If this continues, we will have a country that is ungovernable.”
