2 DAYS LEFT.....

I'm ready to get this old fucker out the door & bring in some new eyes & ideas for a fresh start in the new year! I'll have a vehicle in a couple of day's (hopefully) so I'll be able to get back out to the shop when i want & need to. It's just too unproductive for me to go another winter with just having a bike for transportation...and it makes wanting to get out on the road for any length of trip less motivating when your on it 24/7. My shovel is finally paid for so I'm expecting it pretty soon. What i nightmare that was. A 30 day turnaround turned into a 6 month fucking & empty pocket's hahaha! Could have just ordered up a new crate motor...but after all was said & done was still able to salvage the original cases..Whoo hoo (insert sarcasm). So...What's in store for this new year? Have no idea. I caught myself looking at a map and events and a calender marking down what I wanted to do & then reality set in reminding me that I'm not that guy. I have a feeling it's a head West kinda year... But making plans & dedicating my self to something is just a stress fuck downward spiral into a dark hole of a frenzy for me. I can't be tied to shit for some reason.... Never have been able to over come that. It's hard to live with I'm sure for the people around me but I hope by now their use to it! I'll decide at the last minute more than likely what I do or accomplish. I don't exactly like it all the time either but that's what makes us unique as individuals. I don't won't this swing arm anymore...I do know that. But I can't seem to give it away either..., so ill drop the motor back in it, make some controls, pipes, plumb it, wire it and make some wheel spacers and be done with it. Ill hard tail it later the good old fashion way. Met some new friends this year who I feel will be around for the long haul & I hope to meet some more out on the road for 2011! Other then that I'm gonna do what I do best & play it all by ear one day at a time & hope to enjoy it! Maybe it'll go a little slower this time..2010 went by faster then any year I've been through & it scared the Hell outta me hahaha. We gotta show to prepare for Friday night so I'll catch you fuckers when the new year hangover's in full effect! So until then i raise my glass to all you THROTTLENECKS out there who may happen upon this shitty blog....May your oil never lose it's viscosity!!

Ken Andrews....

I was a HUGE fan of this guy and whatever he put his hand's on...Me & one of my best friends would find some of that good lettuce & just sit in the car with the seat's laid back & get lost in Failure's Fantastic Planet album till the dark clouds rolled away and then go find some breakfast.

And then there was this guy ..............I guess Maynard felt the same way, although in his weird ass way

Help needed.....

A buddy of mine called me up saying every time he puts his bike into first gear it instantly shuts the motor off..I'm like HUH? so i go look at it and the drive shaft, (dumbest shit ever in my opinion) is loose & not even connected! This is when i tell him if he would of just got an H-D like i told him this wouldn't be a problem...maybe something else but not this HAHAHAHA! so i get it back to the shop to figure it out & this is what happened,

It seems that the splined shaft inside the hub snapped on the end & every where I've looked is telling me you can replace just about every little piece inside this bastard BUT that...? It's the one between 8&9

So, The whole assembly, from what I've found from the local Yamaha shop & online, is over 700 bones! & neither one of us want to do that, it's ridiculous. So if anybody that knows anything about Jap bikes, knows where to find used or cheaper parts, or knows if that gear can be taken out & replaced, PLEASE E-mail me! It's an 02' V-Star 650...

I started on this stock couch today...i hate wide seats. Wanted to keep the thickness of it though.

took the foam off the pan & put it back on bike to get an idea where i wanted to start trimming...i got close to frame rails as i could in front & mostly on the inside of the top of the fender in the rear.

You can see my sharpie marks where i needed to trim...close to 2 inches... should of used a silver sharpie!

After i got most of it trimmed with a cut off wheel on the grinder i shaped each side to match with a hand file, the pan is just plastic so it was super easy just tedious trying to get each side to match.Then laid the foam back on to see how much to whack my turkey knife out & started shaving

...the knife works ok for the bulk part of it but i really wish i had a Bosch foam knife but they want you to sell your kidneys to pay for it! I'll finish shaping the edges with a die grinder.

I like how it turned out & I'll probably finish it through out the week, can't decide on how to cover it?

I could go stupid crazy on tooling & hand lacing the leather which takes me forever or maybe just something simple & timeless.....give me some ideas!! Got any artwork???
