the old lady...

You know you've got it good when your wife says "I was thinking of taking Maggie and staying at my sisters this weekend so you'll have no distractions and can get some work done on the knuckle"

Thanks babe.

Travis came by in his freshly swapped V8 econoline and brought me some stainless exhaust pieces.

Got lunch with Chaka and let him take the panhead for a hot lap around the block and then he did a speedway skid inches from my neighbors brand new BMW.

Nick and Mike cruised by in the Merc hung out for a while.

....and still managed to get a shit ton of stuff handled on the knuckle.

Check off the list...not

For the first time I thought I might give in try an easy, bolt on exhaust..I hate making them and im really limited on time. Well of course that doesnt fit this, this is hitting that, those are too long and this is too short.....ugggh. By the time I make this "bolt on exhaust" work I'll have basically done it all from scratch anyways.

Never again.

Cicero Deguzmen jr. is coming out with another installment in his Godspeed series of photography books documenting old motorcycles and the guys building them. His books are known for having some amazing photos from people all over globe so I felt pretty honored when he asked me if I wanted to be a part of it. Nick Maggio was the handsome man responsible for capturing the nonsense going on over here. Nicks really got the eye for this stuff, I highly recommend you go get lost in his world - A time to get.

Also check out the CZ's shot by Mark Choiniere and Ken Nagahara's photos of his trip across the country with Max and Chris.

i'm back...

Scottish highlands early morning glass.

there was a wedding going on, I think it was important.

endless stairs, probably not the best thing for a freshly blown knee.

it rained one time the 24 days we were there, the locals were tripping out.

it really is cheaper to drink alcohol than it is to drink coke...i was bummed.

"not right now"

broke from the pack and hung out here for a minute.

finally made it here.

King Henry XIII was an asshole.

only 700 years big deal.

England, Wales, Ireland and much ground covered, barely stopped to catch our breath.

Funs over now though and so it's time to get back into the groove and try and get this Knuckle built for Born Free. Thanks to everybody stoked on the koozies and stuff that Nick made, hopefully have more stuff soon.
