This is me. In the Spring. On my new chopper. It makes me really really happy...Okay it's not me, but I know exactly how he's feelin'. After work today I dug the Honda out of the snow and started it. Then I went to the shed and got Pommie started too. Which has been giving me some trouble lately. AaahhhhhAaa! Spring time!!!! is all it took to get things running.

Painted tins!!!!

Painting this bike was a blast, So stoked on how it turned out. Still need about 10 or so more coats of clear then a wet sand and polishing. I guess now Hambone Kustoms now has someone that does sick kustom paint jobs. So if your looking for more of the sickness you know what to do.

Random radness

Did not think this Dino scull was for real but with some reading turned out it was. This Dino scull was what predator was based on. Check it out at the atrium on research drive.

NICE! MC in translation

I know I've sang the praises of Nice!MC before here on the Mule. What I didn't mention was the mechanical hell yeah that is Nice!MC. I really wish, at times like these, that my Japanese extended beyond Styx. Here's hopin' everybody connected to the Nice!MC folks are doin' well in this time of crisis.

Flake fail

So the story goes this way. Sprayed a black base coat let it dry then sanded lightly for the the coats to come. Mixed my clear up and added the silver and gold flake. Strayed the first and second coat. Looking sweet! The notice something.... f@€k the base coat is starting to bubble. Well I still have a whole sprayer of clear and flake. whatever finish spraying. So guess what I am doing tomorrow fixing it. Sanding sanding sanding new base with different brand of paint then reflake. Wast of time and money. Fun times.

Donor mule

Skipped out early today to run down to Amigos for a clutch pedal push rod for the original Mule after snapping the old one on a particularly cold day this winter. I welded the old rod back together, but haven't been able to get rid of a weird spongyness ever since. I was hoping the donor I pulled the tranny from last summer would still have the push rod. Sure enough it was still hangin there, but after installing it in my '63 I've still got a strange resistance when pushin the clutch in. A disturbing realization that the problem may reside in the brackets within the Mule. Grrr. The hunt continues.

Went looking for a cheap avON SPEEDmaster on the EGay yesterday and ended up with this...

Complete 21 setup, wheel, tire, drum, star hub, and axle that came off a 78 superglide running a 1970 FL front end on it. All for what I would have paid for the used rubber... I love a good hustle.

Spring sprung my 250 today

Dug the DT out today and gave the new tank I got and the plastics a quick spray. Anybody wanna snow cone? Beautiful sun beating down.

UPDATE: Yikes. A little too clean. Needs some decals and mud.


Put together a close-to-final mockup of Pommie B. Still some spacing and alignment issues to work out and wiring and and and, but there's a pretty nice bike in there somewhere.

Go ahead... Jump!

Something just shouts jump me about thus bike..... I may have to answer.

Also took Ninjas advice and put the taillight inside the rear fender, looks nice and hidden. And mounted a set of those bullet led signal lights
