Man, it's been a bit since I've posted. I blame work, life, & Instagram. But it was beautiful out today so I had to go ride.
Been slowly making some progress on the '71, the neck was all ghetto so I've been adding,welding&grinding away.
Looks way better, still not done yet. My good friend Justin from Canada sent me a bolt on he knew I needed(Thanks brother!). I'm keeping the budget for this build as low as possible with as many friend bought/donated parts as possible. I still need a solo seat and p-pad & some bars if anyone has something they think would work.
Works been good, it's nice I get to work on a variety of bikes. But I tell ya this ethanol shit has got to go! It's fucking hell on carbs and small engines in general. Shit turns to snot after only a few weeks of sitting, clogs jets, eats gaskets/o-rings, it's horrible. Anyway, I'll try to keep more up to date. Hope everyone is having a good holiday weekend!
Well, things change. I popped into a local shop on Thursday to ask about some parts & walked out with a job. In fact, I was wrenching on a Sporty within 30min of me being there. It was pretty unexpected & cool. I've been looking for a job for awhile, mostly to pay for the kids daycare, but I've been holding out for something I'd actually enjoy. Working on bikes fits the bill just fine. Sucks I missed the Swap & Drag, looks like everyone had a good time. Glad to be doing something I love though.
