I am obsessive compulsive and can't figure out my suspension and refuse to think that its my riding style so I've been at the trac kor at the shop everyday and night when I'm not working. Also I started a small race part manufacturing company. That's my excuse for not posting something.

Joe - you have no excuse cause you drive a 350 Honda and you never have a loss for words or knowledge of things you have no clue about.

Jeremy - you don't have a girlfriend cause no body will have you and you haven't been working on your bike so you have no excuse.

Donald - You called three times a day for the last two weeks so I know you have time. Plus I know you can get chicks so you must be gay.

Branson and Strempfer only talk in response to what others say so they have an excuse....

So what's the deal?


How's that Johnny?

I've seen better.

Seriously, we have to get you on another sloper for a few laps. If you have the same problem on another bike you'll know it's you, not the bike...or the reverse.

Maybe park our bikes next to each other and compare the stance.

What's your company making? What we need are some decent lightweight rear sets for these bikes. I've got some on the drawing board but won't get around to having any made until winter.

I suppose you've seen my clever block off plates. Turned out very nice, I'll have one at NH to show off... and probably sell, to George DeCamp.

Pronounced - Doowit, Doowit.

JB - I'm actually starting with making product for Honda RS125s. I figured its like successful crack dealers don't actually smoke it. I am how ever wokring on some vintage or usable for vintage products like foot pegs clip-ons and maybe this winter some bolt on rear set kits for popular models. I think the block off plate is fantastic, more so better then fantastic. My objection is my own being stubborn and do all my ideas first and then after they fail then do yours. I think the ignition/mag, I may have to trust you the first time around. The suspension and handling issues I believe are my riding style with my suspension, but I don't believe with good suspension that it would hinder but benefit. So I choose not too listen to anyone and fail at every attempt to getting my bike around turn 1 as fast as my Beeza... Oh my precious. Also how much machining projects are you doing for money. If your insterested in some of my shit yo', I miss MTV Raps, let me know and I will send the work your way.

Aaron,
We'll have to get together on some of your designs. I have emachineshop.com do almost all my work. These guys are good and very cheap when ordering numbers. I'm pretty familiar now with their software and machine capabilities. A typical machine shop can't touch these guys as far as price.

We'll talk on the QT about what they charged for the block off plate parts. It's literally cheaper to have them make stuff than it is for me to do it myself. Downside is you gotta order about ten of anything to get a deal, and you gotta be damn sure of your design and drawings cause you are gonna get back exactly what the drawing says, if it's wrong you have a pile of expensive garbage.

dont you think he should get the bsa going first??? jeeze, you dont put all of your puzzle parts in one big box, then try to assemble them do you?? give the guy a chance!!

aaron, i know you think i sit around all day emailing people, but in actuallity i do work about 24hours a month. these past 2 days were it. so now you'll have to listen to me for another 28days. ive been really busy in the shop, thats why.

and another thing, i posted something for jeremy on the skulls board. its partly in code, but i think youll dig it.

tex called me tonight about summit. hes out of his mind. i cant wait to go there again. it feels more and more like home all of the time. you guys have a great weekend. i sorta wish i could be there, but its just too damned far, and my bike just needs too damned much work. i will be at summit though. d'angelo i think is going, tex, mike o, ive heard maybe tim courts, you guys?? i hope. jeremy, try and make it. i'll feed you all weekend. its going to be a blast. i cant wait.

later

Aaron I will be all smiles the day I have to try to pass you. Can't wait to see us all running up front.

By the way, I got this bike from George DeCamp to turn into a racer for Hiroshi. It's a very heavily modified 160 chassis, 160 bottom end with a five speed stuffed in, 175 jugs and top end (supposedly 240cc) with a sloper 175 head.

The work on the bike looked familiar so I contacted some people out west, Michael Moore has worked on it and Craig Hansen did the head and frame mods. The head looks like it's had some very extensive work done on it. Relocated intake flanges, porting etc. I'm building a new engine for Hiroshi, not sure if I'll be using this head or not, depends on how DeCamp wants to handle it. What I'm getting at is I may end up with a cheap or free professionally ported sloper 175 head.... if you know anyone that might be interested in something like that :)

just a thought, though, JB and Aaron--supposedly it was moore that ported my head, which just blew out the valve seat due to possibly over-doing the removal of metal. And it was a sloper head.

Scott,

It wasn't Mike Moore that did the head, it was somebody else. He put me in touch with the previous owner and he coudn't remember who did the work so stop talkin' thru your ass and ride faster!!!!

Champ
