Gunar Fugler wadded up and bent the shit out of his radiator. It also bent the mounting bolt for the inside of the radiator. So when we backed it out, it broke. So instead of putting in a helicoil, I welded up the frame with some fresh material.
I think…. I am going through the process of making some T style bars 22″ wide, 12″ tall. He wants them to be perpendicular to the ground to clear his fricso’d tank. They are coming a long. Just have to kick em forward and they’ll be dialed. My buddy Chris be grip’n em. Ready to split some lanes!
I needed some stainless 1.25 bungs for some bars a buddy asked me to make for him. Couldnt find any online, so I made a call to my buddies at the machine shop. Jason Roberts wrote a program for me so I could run the machine. I just pushed a button and banged them out! Way cool using their mill. Thanks Jason and Jeff for letting me come to your shop, and helping me out. These guys have way more important shit to do than bullshit with a few dollars worth of crap! Thanks a lot again! Then I turned em down on Junk Mans lathe. My phase converter took a dump on me. So thanks to these cats for helping me out in some down time!
Machined up a Sportster shifter tip cause I snapped the other one off loading my bike. I was riding it up the ramp kinda slow and the torque of the motor threw the ramp out and the bike high centered on the bed of the truck, looped out, and landed upside down! Luckily it was in the grass hahaha! Aint that a bitch. Good thing about is it gave me another cool thing to make since there wasnt much of a selection online. Your own shit is always cooler!
So we were riding around Ft Worth looking for some jumps to hit. We found some and then went and sent it out of this ditch…. Well the lack of suspension just couldnt save this thing from breaking shit! If I had my other forks and shocks it would of been different! Thanks to Billy for hooking me up with a quick tig job to fix the peg mount that ripped out of the sprocket cover! You’ll notice in the video my left foot spins the peg, right foot slaps the ground, and the head light falls out from a loose seal!
I knew we had a truing stand that we used for balancing cranks back in the day. I needed to use it for truing some wheels for a friend. Typically I will true up a set of wheels if I have the axle, vise, and any aerosol spray can with a straw. I have been lacing wheels since I was a kid from moto to bmx. But since I didnt have the axle I swooped up our stand. Come to find out it had no spacers for the stand! So I turned some down on the lathe out of a chunk of stainless I had laying around. Machining really functional shit is cool.
