Got the kicker issues sorted out on the Jart, and she's back on the road. Rode to work the last couple days, and all seems good! Got a new hoop, spool, and spokes to replace the front wheel. Got it all assembled, taking it to get trued tonight. Tank paint on Outlaw's shovel is coming along. Just needs to dry a bit more before burying it lacquer. Got the Triumph Cases split and the sludge trap pulled. For the most part everything looks pretty good. Meatjammer is getting a new shoe! Got 17k+ out of the old one.

Finished up this helmet that we will be giving away via the R4YL Instagram account. Take a peek over there for how to win! Vintage Blue Metal Flake Helmet, with new Biltwell liner. One size fits most. Handpainted/pinstriped. Pulled the engine out of the Mojo Hand for some much needed, long neglected service. Hoping to have it back on the road to see some duty this summer. Need some valve work and some transmission gremlins to work out. Still making headway on Outlaw's Shovelhead. Got some paint laid down on the tanks last night, still need to finish up the graphic work, but it's looking great! Using some old NOS Harley Davidson Enamel. Stuff shoots really nice, and looks great. From what i can find, it seems that this was an OE color from 73-75, but not 100% sure about that.

Tuesday Bluesday!

Day Late, but seems fitting... Happy Holidays!

Work on the Meatjammer continues... throw the old junk in the corner. Here's where things got interesting... The 'new' motor would only shift to 3rd gear, ended up being a shifter fork issue. I swapped all the transmission parts from my '78 over into the older (pre-'77) engine. Those that know SOHC 750's will know where i'm going with this... '77-78 Honda changed to a 630 drive chain, and consequently needed a longer output shaft. So, i figured, easy enough, swap the output shaft over as well, right? Nope. Shaft is not only longer, the bearing location changed. So i had to machine the '78 shaft to the earlier dimenion. Got the rest of the engine all assemebled, and now back in the bike and running great! Got the top-end back on Outlaw's shovel, starting to look like a bike again! Did some paint work on a helmet for a friend

Another from the Born Free trip... near 4 corners New Mexico, Pete's pan spit out a rocker block, so we made a roadside camp while we waited for help.
