Happy 4th

My new Oil lines. I am running a twin jug so it had a oil line and this cool little flow regulator to keep things slipery. Its all part of my plan to win this Cannonball.
I came up with a foot clutch rocker. I hope it works as good on the road as in the shop.
Fat boy is telling me its time to go home.

If I don't get moving he is gonna slime my favorite 1/4 drive ratchet

Its the 4th and I am not running yet Ahhhhh... Next weekend is the fly in at the airport and I so want to ride in and trade motorcycle rides 4 plain rides.

Its strange to me how much people think paint makes something beautiful. I always think paint is hiding something. But It needed to happen so I painted the frame and forks. I just sprayed it outside in the dirt with cheep single stage. Now The test putting it back together without trashing it. I predict epic failure.

Necessity is a Mother

Necessity is a Mother. I need a knob for my new multi possession handlebars.
Presto there it was just in need of a little love. Now the bars move up and down killer. But Turning off the gas on the welder is a pain. To make a Omelet you need to brake a few eggs. Happy mothers day all you mothers.
