Cafe Seat

 Made a cardboard template for the seat pan with a pocket in the fron to cover the gas tank mounting  bracket. 

 Cut the cardboard template up and traced it onto a piece of sheet metal. 

 Cut it out, bent it, and welded it up.  Gonna start covering the pan in foam tonight, and possible have it down to Freddeh to get covered this week.  Should be waiting for me when i get back into town... Woot...

I got a new set of tires today too!  Finally sprung for some red wings...

Employee of the Month!

Congratulations Grimace.  You are the Employee of the Month.  
Grimace's mouse hunting skills have surpassed all of the other current employees skyrocketing his cat career even further. 


 Vacation starts today. 
 Beer and a rest to start.  Then Ill see how much shit I can get done in the next few days...

 Splorg!  I cant believe money was paid for this bike.  Total shit.  Should be a sweet brat bike in a few months though.. Just starting to tear it down... then gonna cut into it...
 Hans bike back in the shop for the winter. 
Made a quick battery box for the Honda CB360.  Gonna start on the seat tomorrow and get it down to the Fredster for a cover.  Then all I really need to get buttoned up is the tail light, license plate bracket, and a inner fender/mud guard and it should be ready to ride.  Hopefully before Christmas... have a few days left..

Rice O Rama

 Some Pictures I took at Rico O Rama close to the end of summer.  Took me forever to get them up but here are a few cool bikes that were there.

 I used to have this exact same dirtbike when I was 7 years old.  It was the raddest thing ever...
Totally thinking about selling my car to get a bus.

New Shop

 Grimace on patrol for mice.  Hes got two so far, and is on track for employee of the month.
 Finally got to start working on the 75 Cb 360.  This is gonna be a fun ride....

 Some pictures of the Kawasaki getting a physical.

 The shop when i started renting...

 This is the filter after riding the fully rebuilt Yamaha engine about 50 miles.  Pretty sure this isnt normal.  Had to pull the motor out of the bike and bring it to another mechanic.  I would try and tear it down, but I need someone who knows what they are doing... Might have to try and get my money back for this one..
Last picture of the Yamaha before I rip the motor out again (5th time).
