Time to start putting the roadster back together.

Paint is all done on the roadster and ready to put together for good... I got pretty sick of it after working on it all winter, but i'm pretty stoked about it again!

I had a chance to preview some of Tom Pettys new album, MOJO, tonight... The song entitled First Flash of Freedom hit me hard. Songs great. Cant wait to hear the entire album due in June

On our first flash of freedom,
I called out your name.
Love it is hard,
Like an overdue train.
We felt so much more,
Than our hearts could explain.
On our first flash of freedom.

A fistful of glory; a suitcase of sin,
The rain which you dream in,
When you count to ten.
You go to the edge,
And you always give in.
On your first flash of freedom.

Down every canyon and mountain we fall,
We laugh at our shadows.
Tall on the wall.
Your brain is so full,
But you can't keep it all.
On your first flash of freedom.

Across ancient bridges,
Through a town with no name.
Across painted hills,
That no rich man came claim.
Run the wild mustangs,
That nothing can tame.
On your first flash of freedom.
On your first flash of freedom.

Thirsty Thursday

Rode out to Tommy Hyde's house for thirsty thursday. Weekly get together of cool scoots and an occasional hot rod or two at his pad. Probably one of the raddest old guys i've ever meet.
Eat your heart out Dustin.

Tommy's 23T that he bought from the Gilmore museum back in the 70's....for $1200.

Dead and Breakfast

Greatest "B" Zombie movie Ive seen in a long time...Good music, corny gore and funny stuff...This is probably the best scene ever...

Stretched the frame 2" back and 1.5" down, mounted the seat, oil tank, gas tank, new obnoxious filler, frame gusset, overkill motormount, started the stainless bars, and got the exhaust tacked up.

Goddamn Gallows

Kick ass show. Joe Buck, and Antiseen kicked ass too. Didn't get as many pics of them as i wanted.

Greatest grill badge ever.

BIlletproof Michigan.

Way better than billetproof florida. Great weather. Not alot of cool scoots, but some great cars.

Jack Pine

I grew up listening to my dads stories of racing heavy ass Triumphs and BSA's through the back country around Ashley, Michigan, where he grew up. There is a state forest outside of town that he and his closest friend would constantly race each other in....the same place where the famed Jack Pine race starts.
Anyways...i dig this triumph. I would never in a million years own one of the originals...but i'd probably rock this one for a min before handing it over to my dad.

stolen from joyrides. diggin em both.

It moves...

Sort of. Got my Sporty back together enough to take it down the road. Still have to finish my rear fender mount, figure out a seat... and Id like to narrow up my bars and change my exhaust.. and then tear everything down to clean up and paint...

But it went down the road... Ran like shit. Set the timing by ear and used some gas that has been sitting around for a while... But damn did it feel good...every sputter and pop of the way.

Here it is with the fender mocked up and an old seat.
After the maiden run
