Happy Father's Day to Me. (and you)

I am really lucky to have my kids. Somehow theyre about grown up & still like me. And more so lately are having to help me...............ow how that tables have turned :-)
My oldest so will be an artist someday, my daughter a Pastry chef, & the young son a behind the scenes music industry leader, or rock star.

Thanks for Loving Daddy...........most days.  I do miss mine. May be a nice day to walk by the river.

Since its my special day, I told the kids they HAD to stand together for a pic. 12 noon, girl ready for the day, boys need a shower :-)

Southsiders 3erd anniversary Party

Wow, Vincent is throwing a 3 day Bash at the most killer location ever I think. I mean,..... really?

CB Vtwin, more parts you can make in the kitchen when nobodies looking.

Wanted to make Brass emblems & tags for this bike, so I decided today was the day to try various methods to see what I could do simply.
For this, we are once again in the kitchen. Need a plastic bowl, some  PCB etching solution, a piece of brass.....and some other stuff,........

Used a sharpie for the test piece
 Radio shack solution, yes they still actually still sell useful stuff.
 It soaks the brass in the stuff.
 Checking progress
 Took it out of solution, cut to shape. painted it black & sanded the parts, the sand paper will remove the paint from the high areas where the sharpie.
The idea was a emblem for the muffler.
Annnnd anything that remotely looks like a gun to my Daughter, she has to shoot my son with.

CB Vtwin, tame the beast

We want the bike to have a bit of a mellow idle, but have some bark when on the gas. I found this gem, cut it down a bit, modified it, and packed it a bit lighter with looser fiberglass packing, mig wire to hold in together & waalaa. This should do the job nice, in Aluminum.
