Another tranny project

I'm tearing apart this ratchet top trans this week. I giggled when I took the top off because it looks like someone used white house paint to seal it up, brush strokes and all. Oh well, it did it's job!

Fixing Frames

A few weeks ago my mentor had me fix this frame. The neck was hideous, it had no foot board tabs, the seat post had hideous welds and holes and the area where the oil tank goes was cut off. So I made it all pretty again! I should've gotten some before pictures but I didn't. Life will go on.

My Sissybar

I don't know if I've posted this picture before but here it is again. I found this beauty at a chopper shop in Colorado. It's from the 60's and some dude probably on acid made it. The chrome was coming off and it was a bit rusty so I had it polished and re-chromed. I can't wait to put it on my '49.

Yours truly

I got a good laugh when my Mom e-mailed me this picture of me when I was a kid.

Leonards Flatty

I can't wait to see this bike when it's finished! He's bringing a few more projects down to the shop tomorrow and I can't wait to jump into working on them.
I'm in the middle of porting these heads.
I went shooting with a friend last Friday. I love a good day at the range!
