Oops I did it again.

Somebody needs to block the craigslist on my computer before I ruin my life. Back up to 8 deep. After working on much older bikes that kick over first try all I have to say is TopDeadCenter is super annoying.

Still going

Need a tank and a tune.

A brisk walk in the woods

is what everyone needs daily.

Where did the native americans go?
"S" vine down by the wabash. Probably a secret meeting place for all the mountain lions and bears that don't want to be seen.
Yeah, no hunting! Unfortunately, this sign was on the neighbors property.
Some wild animal. I tell you, the nerve! Didn't you see the NO HUNTING sign? Ever heard of LEAVE NO TRACE.......sheeesh..... wild animals........

Cincy skate

School spot again.

Nick, 360 Shovit
The brick on this school was amazing. The stainless steel prison looking doors leading into them that I forgot to take a picture of were not.

Skate Cincy

Goof off front 5-0
Proper nollie heel, first try I think. Don't worry, he paid his dues rolling in before this....

My right eye

I hadn't been to the dentist for over a decade or the eye doctor for years either and now I have a picture of my right eye! This spring vacation has been more like a health check with a dash of snow.

Honda N360


This is one fine automobile.







友達のエリックさんが最近買ったバイクを俺のガレージに修理しに出してきて、2時間以内乗れるように〜  CX500だけどあんまりないよ、このバイク。割と速かった。一緒に乗れる人が一人増えて嬉しい!  

ガレージセールでこれを買ってしまった. Hammockのベース。これで夏の昼寝が楽しくなった。

New build, new problems.

More bikes, more issues

Got two of them taken care of today.
Sprocket that will fit a 520 chain for the 350 engine? Check.
Rear axle that will fit the wheel I am running AND is the correct length? Check.
Also some controls came in today. 1.5 weeks till spring break. Will the bike be ready? Only time will tell. Time for moto bikes and dirt and drunk rednecks!


はげんきげんき! そして、ものすごく速い!

Ben's bike

Engine work

This should have all been done such a long time ago. I am scared that I will do it wrong so I haven't been doing it at all. I have two more engines to rebuild after this one so no more dragging my feet. Bottom end is ready for bolts, top end will come soon after. I am going to tear down one other engine and throw parts in the parts cleaner to soak while I finish this one.....
Gasket cleaning hell awaits......

Things that happen when rebuilding an engine:
A: The manual that you bought and the one that you downloaded are very different from each other. In the end you realize neither one is right.
B: The edges of everything are sharp but you will forget this many times.
C: Once everything is put back on, you will find a washer, spacer, bolt that you didn't put in that is no longer put-in-able without taking apart everything you have already done. Oh well, you'll do it right next time.
D: Nothing at the hardware store fits, but I guess that is what a grinding wheel is for.
E: You will probably forget to tighten down the oil filter bolts before you put the side cover on and have to take it back off again.


Beetle weld

Spread your wings and fly. Far far away.
I wish I could today. . . . .

Happy Dad and welding Ryan

A good family weekend. Dessie is not too stoked on my flash...
The Chase.
Happy Dad door and hammer.
Ryan welding aluminum. You are SOOOO awesome.
The bike is back here but I have 5 other bikes to take care of before much else gets done. It will be ready to be assembled and wired as soon as the sprocket and chain get here.....oh yeah and the seat.....How many weeks until spring break? I'll be done.

Dessie the scientist

Dessie gave a speech this weekend about the currrent state of Moyou's paws. Let's take a look at some of the highlights.
Here she is putting on her professional face for the crowd.
The inspection.
The findings.
The presentation.
The after lecture question taking.
An extra special thanks goes to Moyou the puppy for being so accommodating during the ordeal. It is now official, your paws will be fine and all the road apples you got into Friday night have been 100% removed. The cat food you got into is still unaccounted for though......
