Too many projects...

Anyone wants to finish this project, get it on the cheap. $400

For sale is this 1978 Honda CB400 Hawk Hondamatic. This is a project bike I bought about a year ago and have worked on here and there to get to what you see now. The bike does need to be completed, although is nearly done. The issue with the bike is no spark. Has strong compression and I have a ton of spare parts. I am confident it is something simple and is most likely the stator that needs to be replace. It is kick and electric start. Bike has an original 14k miles on it. I have every part that was pulled off the bike and it will all go with it. Things it needs to be finished are a battery tray, new battery, mufflers, tail light, and license plate light. Tires are in good shape and not dry rotted. I built a new leather seat for it and looks great on the bike. I just have too many other projects going on right now, so this one has to go. email or call/text 507-696-eight four seven three

Thursday Night!

See you there!

Close to Home

Ken is in the dark blue shirt with sunglasses about half way down. Grabbed these pics from a Model T forum, sounds like he was a pretty well known guy in the community.

Last week here in Rochester there was a nationwide Model T meet. The event lasted the entire week and everyday I would see 10-15 of these running through the streets of Rochester. There were 250 Model T's and owners here during the hottest week in a decade. I came to find out that one of the guys was killed while rolling his T on a road I ride frequently south of here. My thoughts and prayers to the Meek family.

Full Tilt In Review

The show was good and the ride was great. I still dont have a camera and apparently we were having too much fun to take pictures of any bikes. Hold tight though, Kurpius was clicking away and he takes way nicer pictures anyways!

Bearded Lady was a good time and good sights. Good to see some familiar faces!

Lights out.

Almost got hit by a car last night as all my lights went out going into an intersection. I think this might have been the culprit?

Had an old friend true my rear wheel up today. Arc'd the brake shoes to the drum and set my spacing up.

We were probably in the woods shooting Brandon about the time this happened. Gnarly!

The world would be a better place

If more people woke up at 5:30am and got on their bike for a couple hundred miles. Thanks for the visit Teach!


My exhaust broke on the trip to Cali, I pick the hottest day of the year to fix. Heat index 115. Fail again.

Anyone Know This Guy??

Found this pic on QuadCamBastards. It was taken at J&P Cycles and the bike has an Iowa plate. Anyone know who owns it and how to get ahold of them? Interested in the cylinder head setup and some other details!

Born Free = HUGE TRIP

The anticipation, planning, riding, light, darkness, sounds, smells, cold, hot, rain, snow, desert, plains, mountains, canyons, rivers, valleys, cities, villages, traffic, exhiliration, exhaustion, bikes, people, triumph, defeat and brotherhood. The pictures are only a tiny snapshot of the magnitude. The only way to explain it is with a smile and the assurance that if you haven't done it, you need to.

1939 Harley Flathead Burnout

An oldie but a goodie...get that flathead back on the road brotha!

1961 Econoline first drive

Turn your laptop on its side! Fuck you Iphone!

Born Free Bike

This was probably the best bike at the show in my opinion. Bobby Hernandez had this bike at Wil's the day after the show and I could not stop circling it. Spartan Frameworks built the frame and front end. Bike is understated and perfect.

Diesel Rod in Nebraska

This was one of the projects being worked on at the garage we stumbled on in Nebraska. This father and son had been working on this one for about a year. The wheels and tires were from a Semi and in person the car was HUGE. Rad.
