Nude models do make most things better.

This summer I will try and see what kind of shenanigans the bike will cause.

Funny thing is out of all my bikes, she HATES this one the most.

Another one of those long stories with a bittersweet ending, I'll spare all the melodrama.

About 10 years ago, I found two choppers in the weeds behind a guy's house; this one had a hand-sized hole blown through the cases-


I figured i teach my younger son about building Britbikes, and gave it to him. I set up two sets of cases, two cranks, two pairs of rods, two sets of main bearings, two pairs of cams, etc., etc., and we got to building side-by-side.

This is as far as he got before-
A) quitting college (on a scholarship, no less)
B) quitting a great job with his uncle, that he was VERY good at (transportation & logistics)
C) moving to Austin (for no good reason)
D) getting married to girl he had only been dating a couple of weeks
E) joining the Army
and F) having a baby (it was a miraculous 8-month pregnancy, kinda like mine was)



I took it a bit further, then sold it on to a guy in Utah, along with a running project Honda 360 cafe racer posted elsewhere-


'65 Triumph T120R Bonneville 650, .020 over, welded up rigid rear, chromed springer forks, fishtail tailpipes, meh...
