Can't stop mocking

I need to stop doing this Mr. Dressup routine.

The Lump is back in.

 Got  the engine back in just in time for the new year. Getting excited to ride it now.

Rear binders

Put together a freshend up master cylinder and pedal setup earlier today too. Ok. Not that impressive a task but with the slow progress lately this constitutes an accomplishment.

Right to left... fender. Cutting up my sporty repop fender tonight to make it runnable fir the big twin left side drive.

Paint for cindy

Making great progress on this paint job. The pics make the tins look blue but there not there metallic purple with purple flake. Hopefully will be able to finish them tomorrow. Need to paint the lace panels then some detail air brushing and boobs are cool oh I mean bobs your uncle. But boobs are cool anyway.

Evening at Bernie's

Bernie McAvoy threw a little Holiday shin-dig last night that was titties! Bernie's Machine Works is a shangra-la of awesome. Knuck knuck knuck pan knuck pan pan rarities after rare'r-ity. Around these parts of the world it's not likely to see any HD stuff pre-cone shovel. So it's always a major treat to see Bernie's stash. But Bernie's Machine shop isn't just relics and restore's. Bernie's built some of the meanest modern chops in town too. With a little egging on we even got a blast from what is probably the loudest bike in Saskatoon. 124ci S&S. Bernie figure's he's got over 380 hours into it. Shit! Thanks, Bernie, for a great evening.

Hot Rod Holiday

Been spending my Holiday's so far learning more about traditional hot rods. Time well spent, but I could see this developing into a dangerous new addiction.

Happy Holidays

Feelin pretty tired after helpin the big guy out last night. Don't think I'll offer the Mule's services next year. St. Nick gets pretty wasted by the end of the night and it gets pretty scary riding shotgun to this guy after a million and one eggnogs.

in my hood

Been meaning to snap a picture of this van for a while. It's parked on one of my regular drives and with a decent set of wheels this thing would be a fucking gorgeous boogie van.

Merry Christmas

Have a Grand old time and get home safe tonight, folks. Merry Christmas.

Buttoned Up

All buttoned up and ready for a million miles thanks to Brian. Got a new clutch rod assembly and kicker shaft which completes the incomplete "completely rebuilt" claim upon purchase.
Thanks for the help Buddy.

Also got the 21 all shiny, wrapped in rubber, bearings repacked and sealed, balanced and trued. Things are starting to take shape.

Winter Nights

When you live North of the 49th parallel (the 52nd to be exact) this day is a unique one being the longest night we see all year. On this Winter Solstice we will actually see more than 16hrs of darkness and with sunrise at 9:14 AM and sunset at 4:57 PM we will have only 7h 42m 49s of daylight with which to soak up the vitamin D needed. The good news is that from tomorrow on the days start getting longer again. Some say the lack of sunlight makes us a little weird during the winter months, but I say it's just fuel for creativity. Winter builds have always been a place to focus that pent up coookyness. Get out and enjoy the sunlight any way you can. Here's to longer days ahead.
