I was worried I would have to borrow a car or bum a ride to the RHD chopper show.. Well I decided to do something other than get laid this weekend. Got a buncha shit done on my to-do list and got the sweet little audi running and safe enough to make a trip out east (Plainview). I filled up the tank which took up to 16.8 gallons (not counting what was in it already), and started driving towards PV while live-tuning the VE table. Kinda tricky to do while you drive, but you can easily commit up and down to your index and middle finger as you drive and watch the wideband display. The map was way off: GO FUCKING FIGURE. I had to stop a few times to adjust and add fuel everywhere, but I was able to take the little red audi 100miles round trip for the first time in 4 years. No overheating issues, and a stable lean cruise. BLAHBLAHBITYBLAHBLAH, I decided not to push my luck (laptop battery was on its way), turned around and it got me back home without a stutter. Gonna drive this thing to school all week and get it tuned better. It will be at the RHD show.. Now all I gotta do is insure it.

Did some work on my cousin Nate's bike tonight. Nothing crazy....cut the rear struts, cut up a rear fender, and got the seat bracket welded on the backbone. His tins are getting painted at Relic right now. Exhaust coming from Led Sled.
Tonight was my first time welding with gas on my Hobart Handler 140...fuck it's a whole new world and I actually got down some pretty decent beads! Sun shines on a dogs ass every once in a while!

Oil tank and battery tray bolted in. Now I have to sort through the wiring, connect wiring coming out of the frame and repackage it all. Fabricated my coil/ign switch bracket and it is turning out real nice. At the halfway point and it looks like half a bike so I guess I'm on pace!

Fuel Injection wires through the frame. Starter, stator and wheel bearings installed. Some other small things. Stopped by the paint shop and things are looking sweet thanks to Greg,Greg and Jeremy. But I'm holding out on you until they are all done! Getting sick of looking at the same picture everyday? lol

It doesnt look like much, but wow is it time consuming! The fuel tank mount covers where the wires enter the frame. I wrapped the wires in electrical tape to get the bundle tight under the shrink tube and it is giving it a slightly wrinkled effect that is pissing me off. But other than that it is going ok. lol

So I fucked up in my last post and got my hopes up that OCC was done for it...I guess they just relabeled that garbage...So to make up for it here is something that actually does rule. Grabbed this from Matt @ http://www.carlscyclesupply.com/
Pulled over on his Sears bike on the Cannonball this summer.

My Aunt has never covered a seat pan before but she does a lot of furniture upholstery and things of that nature. Told her what I wanted and drew her a picture. I built my pan out of of 16ga steel and the solo is a Baas Metalcraft Carbon Steel Pan. I think she nailed it! Anyone needs a seat covered get in touch, guaranteed lowest price you will find anywhere too.

Not my balls or my cheeks. My LEGS derrr.. Check these out.. Was a bit tricky getting the right leg in the lathe (pinch bolt hit the live center and had to make a custom live center (to not damage a good live center) to put in a tail-stock scroll-chuck), but hell is for visiting occasionally! Send me your legs and i'll shave em nice for you!
Got pretty shut out this weekend mostly because we have 2-3 feet of snow on the ground in most places. Found a few things worth going back to look at this spring. If you see anything that might interest you let me know! Its all for sale...except the cow eating bulldog....

Not sure if I wanna use the oil bag I have now. Nor do I wanna go with a 16" rear wheel. I need to find a shouldered 19" sporty aluminum rim for the rear (to lace up to my juice drum hub), and maybe a moon round oil tank before I can continue. I'm not too happy with the boxy horseshoe oil tank i've got. HELP!
