Gypsy Run 4

Approximately 1,000 miles with some great friends on some fantastic roads. So much stuff going on, and I didn't take nearly enough pictures. Arguably the best weather yet and almost all great bikes there. I already can't wait until next year. 50wt represented and had a great time. Thanks to Walter and Fritz and everyone that made it happen. It was most excellent.

Neo Dutch

I know we've probably seen these before, but I still feel the need to say: That boy's got talent!

Seen at the Chop Shop. Very nice, but don't ask Jason about the oil tank and wrinkle black!

Mockup pic from...10 years ago?

This thing was pogoing mad fun, I tell you. Turning radius of a Dreadnought-class ship and very entertaining once those fork springs started to hum.

Dear Mr. Japanese Spam Robot Guy

I've been deleting your crap since this place started, and will continue to do so as long as there is breath in my body.
I will fight on the beaches, I will fight on the landing grounds, I will fight the fields and in the streets; so on in the name of all that's holy...knock it off.

Does this hardtail make my ass look big?

Ick. I gotta make a 200mm choppa for a guy. Could be worse, could be 300...

More Silicon Bronze...

You're right Jay, this stuff is the shiznit. I'll be using it a lot more in the future! I used DC; the bead is uglier initially but it cleans up nice. AC provides a nicer looking shiny bead right away, but arc wander made it a pain to use in general (for me at least).

Dance High & Shine, Whaletank!

I hammered out a new 16 ga. bottom, plus added 2 1/2 stretch in the front. I'd like to paint it, but I want to shake it down for a while first to see if any leaks show up.
I also moved the outlet to the right hand side so there's no fuel line between the cylinders, hence no more pre-heated gasoline...the motor seems to appreciate it.


This woman tells me someone didn't pay the bills!
