Born Free from Chino

Was a busy week last week. Started with 3 bikes in pieces. Josh and Clayton worked 12hours a day for the last week to get their panheads ready for Born Free. I had to put a solid 4 days in on the Triumph since the top end rebuild. All was worth it because it was an awesome time and an amazing show. Thanks to Mike Davis, Grant, Classic cycles, and all that helped get this show together. Here are a couple shots from the phone over the weekend.

Congrats to Clayton for winning "The Best Panhead" Turned out awesome, you deserve it after all the hard times we gave you at the shop.

Weekend Gadget

Fully functional and definitely practical. A gift with a touch of class Click Here

Down to the Wire

So here is where I was yesterday around 6pm. I had a head gasket leak that was squealing air. Re-heated the copper gasket, cooled it down and threw her back together. Adjusted the valves and kicked her over. Seems to be running rich and rocker oiler is leaking a little. But other than that, the new top end sounds awesome. Good idle and great revs. Have to fix rocker oiler leak, mess with carb a little, and hook up lights. After that, freeway test and if all goes well I will be riding this party machine over to Born Free tomorrow. Fingers crossed all works out today.

"Utter"ly Amazing!

Classic Cycles

Looks like everyone who is anyone has come together to put on the best show of the year and/or maybe this decade. One for the record books that will be remembered for years. Classic Cycles in Orange CA is hosting this shin dig. Going to be good times. Get your old bike running and come out to meet and greet all the familiar faces and bikes.
