BSA, Metal metal.......

I always like the builds best when they are in metal, before teardown for paint. So on the BSA Im doing now, I am doing this on some of the parts..... The exellent oil tank was made By Robert at Elswick Cycles.

Remember Summer? So done with winter.

I miss the summer. I miss 5 years ago, Skateboards, breaking stuff on skateboards.

Starting to get the itch to make Longboards again. Happens every winter.

Bitter cold, again........shocker.

Tonites the night to yank transmission in the El Camino, or as I like to call it the Anti Christ #2.
It will get a stall converter this time, so my daughter will now mbe able to do burn-outs, a feat that has eluded her thus far. Actually it is a GMC Diablo, so I guess that about rite, it means Devil .

Anti Christ #1 would be my other half's 72 Cultass Convertible devil car. It repeatidly tried to commit suicide, but the joke was always on me somehow.

It got hit by a minivan, a deer, a driver crossing the center line, all with in a year, oh and a moving truck a couple years prior. We rebuilt the small block 3 times, trans, Only once somehow. More on that later maybe, it deserves its own pictures.

Back out into the artic tundra............. I promise we'll be back to bike shortly.

Triumph T140......what to do, what to do.....

Didnt have the heart to chop this Red guy up, to complete, & had a good history.







It was electrically challenged......so........out it all came, B-bye.


New Project, Redemption

This is a neat BSA, needed some love. Came with a long girder, not enough rake to accomidate the girder.

Tried on an old MT125 fork, kinda cool

But the girder kept calling me, so I cut it down & put it back in its home.....Felt right.












OK, will try this Blog thing again.......











Saving Grace done.
