2 Into 1

My new old 2 into 1 upswept muffler that's on the way.  Straight outta the 70's, this thing is really going to make my exhaust what it needs to be!
The mounting tab is so perfect, hopefully the inlet pipes line up nicely without any modifications.  I really dig this style, and it is also one of the more difficult versions to find.  Usually, if you can find any at all, you see the wider Fubar types.  Those inlets always looked a little more spread out to me, so we'll see what happens with this one.

Unique Cycle

Today's score of chopper bits from over at Unique Cycle in Hewitt, NJ.  We took a hungover cruise in the Swinger and got some stuff.  There's always cool little shit to be found in the shop for dirt cheap.  Ken picked up a set of neck cups and complete springer in great condition for $50!  And he'll be getting some help on setting up a rear juice drum for the shovel.
Where else can you find a Master Craft lens for $5?

The owner Ed has some gnarly rides in his stable.

(Borrowed the pics cal!)

PA Swap Meet

We hit up the Allentown, PA swap meet today, and it was pretty shitty once again; besides all of our buddies' bikes from the AMCA.  All I got was an FX mid brake lever, one chromed Anderson peg, and an old white Harley peg cover.  It was better than nothing I guess but the venue's $10 entry fee makes it questionable.  Hey could be worse!
Jay stopped by on his FLH yesterday during 70 degree weather and my Crazy Frank progress.  I really dig the passenger pad he got.



I got it mocked up, but still have to cut off the battery ground cable mount and relocate it on the other side of the cross piece on the frame to slide the fender totally forward and bolt it in.  It also won't be sitting that high, because I had a block of wood holding the frame up.

Ken's got some psychedelic ideas brewing!

This Weekend

After dealing with a flooded basement / garage, and rescuing boxes of rare chopper parts out of the wet abyss (a fuckin nightmare by the way!), I managed to spend some much needed quality time with Frank.
I got pretty much all of the painting done on this bad boy.  I can't say I'm totally ecstatic with the results, but this bike is a rider and this style will do just fine for now.  The flowers around the marker holes are my favorite part.  The other designs were kind of a wing-it deal, but overall it's lookin funky!

Hopefully this week I can mount her up and wire in the tail light!  This spring is gonna be exciting.

This beer is delcious.

You Think You're Badass?

That's the scariest 33.4mm front end I've seen yet!
Have you lived it like this guy?  I know I haven't.

Good 'ol chip braved the crashes to shred pans!

Now that's a fuckin air cleaner.

Run this set-up.

Well, I scored this ribbed OEM chromed HD derby cover for $10, I like it.
