Just drug it home the other week. My friend Chad signed it over to me if I got it out of impound in Philly! Sounds like a deal to me and now my little brother has a project bike. That I am working on..... Anyhow. It has got a super cool ARD mag setup and a girder front end. I am gonna nix the coffin tank for a nice, low peanut. Get it level again so that it sits at the required 4 inches and fix tons of crazy shit that was done to this bike and get it back on the road and somewhat good looking again. Anyhow, here is the freshly drug home pic and here is the after pic with the front end removed. Sitting level, it is gonna be nice and low. The sporty front end i was planning on using isn't going to fit. I was surprised as this is a Honda neck. So, CB triple tree and forks it is. Paired up with a 21 inch wheel, we be in bidnezz! Next week, new front end and off with the fender!!!

Well sort of. Posted it up on EGay and people didn't appreciate the flat black paint and lack of interior and the finely ripped leather seats. It isn't worn out, just a seasoned tool of destruction. You can eat off the engine, but apparently that doesn't matter. Shoot me an email if interested in a stripped down fast rat.

Man, what a lot of fucking work. Cleaning all the excess metal off these cases requires the patience of a saint and the precision of a surgeon. I heard it was a lot of work, but like most, just slagged it off as a bunch of BS but let me tell you, it has been a few days now of grinding off and on to get it to where it is now which is far from finished, but almost ready in it's rough form to have the rear mounts fabbed up. That being said, I have a lot more grinding to do and it is far from being finished.

Yup, you heard it. One sorta good Ironhead engine that we saw fit to hack the tranny off. I know, I know, it has been done before, but what hasn't? Anyhow, old Ironheads are awesome engines that are perfect in many ways with the exception of their gearbox. So to keep the revs down and get that speed up, we are gonna mate it up to a nice 4 speed ratchet top. Will post up more pics as the butchery continues.

First screen is born. Took it for a quick test run. Quick and dirty in the garage just like I like it. All shirts hand screened, one at a time, as I work my fingers to the bone. Will have three t's, hats, stickers and other assorted goods in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
