Pan Shovel Tear Down....






I really dig the tear down aspect of an engine rebuild.  Its the simple part of the whole ordeal.  Not a lot of thinking and its a good time seeing what, when, where, how, and why shit went wrong.  Its pretty cool when you find some info about your motor that you weren't quite sure of, speculated about, and discovered you weren't to far off.  So I took the top end apart and found S&S connecting rods.  Pulled the cam cover off to find a Sifton cam and solid lifters.  Pretty bitchen....now to split the cases clean this fucker up and take it to Noot....

Way back when....1980




always love to get down with some of the shit I grew up on...along with listening to every Sabbath album my old man had I listened to every ACDC album my old man had, which was every album both bands ever had.  No matter how many times I have heard these old tunes, they never seem to get old.  This album came out when I was 4 months old.  I would bet the farm that my dad played this shit at top volume on his Kenwood.  I remember it like it was yesterday.

Ready to Roll.....


Team Cycle Nazi






I hit up the local MX track this weekend.  Took my kids and wife out to go see my nephew rip around.  Its his first year racing,  and I can say with total cofindence that he is loving every aspect of it.  Little dude has given me the bug again.  I raced for a few years in my youth, actual started racing at the same age this guy is pictured here.  It was a time in my life I will never forget.  My brother and I racing as kids was totally an every weekend family get together...aunts, uncles, grandparents, all showed to hang out, party, and spectate.  It was a real bitchen deal...I thinks I'ms gonna buy me a four stroke!!!

LOGAN RIPPING








My brother cracks my ass up, all summer long the only thing he wears is swimming trunks... cutting wood, roofing, mowing lawn, weed eating, and yes riding motocross....he showed up the other day to pick my ass up in Minnesota wearing just swimming trunks and flip flops hahah love my brother to death.. today he was chasing my nephew around the practice track on a pit bike in flower swimming trunks...hahaha crazy mother fucker...my lil boy just thought this was the beez knees...he was laughing, pointing and flipping out on his cuz running around the track...

Burned er down...thanks for the help!!!!







I will have a bunch more photos from the Full Tilt show...this is some bad and good news all wrapped up in a few photos...OK so my bike was on the way to a rebuild anyway, the rear hole was huffing some smoke from time to time and I wasn't too certain it would make the trip up and back.  I guess my hunch was dead nuts...cuz this fucker burned down on my way home from St Paul.  The heat and traffic from the prior day is in my opinion the last straw for this old girl.  I was only about 70 miles outta St Paul when I heard a sound that I didn't really want to hear that far away from home.  It actually sounded like something making its way outta the top end and down the exhaust and out...hahaha I heard this noise wearing ear plugs and a helmet, so it had to be loud.   Immediately after hearing the noise I was looking back to see if I was smoking like a mother fuck, but there wasn't any smoke at all and I didn't hear any type of knocking and it really didn't even start to run like shit.  So I kept riding looking back every few miles for smoke, but it wasn't till about 30 miles and I look down to see oil all over the side of my cases and THEN i looked back and seen my bike smoking like a mother fucker...pulled er over and it was over..started calling everyone I knew and thank god for family cuz my brother on a moments notice loaded up his truck, grabbed a trailer and was on his way to pick my ass up 180 miles away...not to mention take me 188 miles home to drop my bike off and another 60 miles home....another couple of buds I have to thank are my good friends from Relic Kustoms, they came and picked me up, to not only get me a little closer to my brother miles wise but get me outta that god for saken fucking gas station....thank you very much to my brother by blood and to my brothers up nort....well any way like I said good and bad things came outta it...of course the bad news is I gotta pull the fucker out, rebuild it costing me some more coin and annoying my wife just a little bit more, but on the other hand Im going to have a fresh pan shovel and got to spend some quality time with my brother and a few Friends....really I am not sweating it much









BACK AT THE SHOP....HEAVY

Its getting closer

Well looks like Born Free went down with out a hitch, weeeell from 2000 miles away it looked that way, but I'm sure it did.  God damn sure would have loved to make it out that way, but I didn't...so now its time to get ready for the next bitchen chopper show, and for most of my buds its only about 200 miles away...give or take a hundred or so miles!  So there is no fucking excuse to not make it up to St Paul for the Full Tilt Chopper Show.....Here is the Flyer again so you don't forget where, when, and why this is a midwest show not to be missed mutter fuckers...
