Extensions and Wanderings

The bike gets longer and somewhat more abstract...

The aluminum and other heavy metals I'm grinding aid in its metamorphosis on both mental and physical levels - I dig that duality.
I'll have to visit a machinist to get this front-end done in the end.

"So before you go to gettin' mad think of the best freak that you've ever had"

I always thought my favorite Hyphee Emcee was speaking to Mike Tyson's love of Custom Autos.

This movie puts so much in perspective.

I was stoked to find a review.

Lance Henricksen is a mean mofo.

The blitz the Boz put on the NFL/Seahawks is the P2P of the century.

The William Forsythe chopper chase close up endo blow up is insane.


Birthday Memory Stick... Thanks Paul

Flatbed Blues

No Van just a Ranger.

A lesson in life perhaps.

I do recall a similar situation just before the grapevine in CA.

Stoked Todd's van made it to Portland in retrospect.

He didn't let go of it for a trip to Tahuya.

In the end Eddie somehow came through on a truck.

Then we met Sean.

He lent us the tow-truck.

8 and a 2

Todd was nice to me last weekend and we came back with a bunch of good stuff.

I got a tt500 flat tracker and this copy of Street Chopper from March 82.

Dear Carlo Borrani

I need to follow the advice of a more experienced man.
I swapped the boxed swingarm out in favor of a tubular version and back again due to fitment issues.
Troy’s buddy Bill told me this would be the case…
Should have listened because it is something I’m completely capable of doing.
I'll wait to come up on a hydraulic drum conversion and different shocks to go that route.
Some wire wheeling and sand blasting on the parts that came with the bike go as an interim fix.
That wilwood caliper was once dunked in rootbeer and came from an Alfa GTV.
One of the odd looking ones – Kammback?
I do like shouldered aluminum and will need to get creative to street the front wheel.
A bit of a shave and shim will do the trick.
I hesitated to get it to this point because now the shop dudes can roll it around Twinline.
It takes me an hour to clean up after I touch anything there and another in the shower scrubbing my fingers.
I’m ok with that amount of effort tho.

Dove l'hai Presa Quella Motocicletta?

Non è una motocicletta, tesoro. È un chopper. Dai, andiamo.

More Celly Snaps

Stream of consciousness.

Uploading images still a pain but that rainbow kinda blew my mind.

Marlon Leon Sundeep Richards

Still not sure what I think about German sheet metal.

Keith Richards tends to think it saved his life.


Thanks for the story Mitchell - surprised to find it on gooogol.

I do dig the iHop Hop BTW.

I bought your CD as well of course only after you gave me a few.
