    Cleaned up the raised beds and built a fence to keep the chickens out. Only cost about $300 and a day and a half of labor.







    I thought that a cafe racer was a custom that you could do whatever you wanted and there is no right or wrong.

    Picked up one of these to haul race bikes and camp in.

    Had this dropped off today. In 16 weeks it will be prepped and race ready for the Manx Grand Prix.

    It was a spares bike for the one below. It was a tidy standard road bike and its picture doesn't do it much justice, but the engines away being refreshed and it will be used as the main bike for this year.

    Think I posted the clip below of Shaun from 2015 before, but this is what it will be doing.

    I've spent entirely too much time and money saving a totaled Mercedes 240d. What the he'll is wrong with me. I've got almost a grand in a car that almost can't make it up the hill to my house, and sounds like a tractor.
    It's almost done now, and I need to find a hipster with money now.

    You could always build one of these just for a giggle.

    $300 29mm CR carbs. Now I need to do some research on getting these running on my Z1. They come with velocity stacks, but I plan on sticking with the stock airbox .

    I completely get it. I have the same "issue". I blame it on being raised a have not. You fixed the broken, you made it run and you squeezed every ounce of use out of it. Just getting a new one, wasn't an option. I get chewed on for never throwing anything away as well. I think they're connected "issues".
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.
