Saturday at the shop. Tony decided that he is gonna build a xs650. After seeing all the wack ass TC bros choppers out there he is gonna show some fools what is up. Anyways I am sick to death of xs650s but no doubt his will turn out great. I had a little accident after World of Wheels with my new bike. Rubber tires+ metal ramp+snow and ice= bike fell of ramp while unloading and i broke off the peg and bent a bunch of really expense parts. So I drilled out some cool old dirt bike pegs and straightened all the bent shit and went riding today. The last pic is of Johnny's new cb350 project that should turn out cool. It is super long and should ride like shit but it is gonna look cool. Fashion over function is still the chopper rule. Or maybe that should be Fashion and function is the rule but how cares anyway. Either you ride choppers or you ride bullshit and that is that.

So after changing my mind about the brake set up I had to retro fit a master cylinder. Took a little fittling around but it turned out great and I like that the master is sitting on the side of the motor. I had this great velocity stack but it stuck out like a mile so I gave it a hair cut and fit some screen in it to keep the birds out. I had this shitty break light license plate side mount set up so I drilled a hundred or so holes in it and then mounted it behind the primary case. It is a little different but I did not want anything on the back of the bike. Western belts make great battery straps so start hitting your local thrift store.
After World of wheels I kick it into high gear and finished my Ironhead All it needs is oil and gas and I will be ripping up midtown. I will be riding this bike to the Dice party and to the Smoke out West so get your shit done and go ride with us.
