A new project for the New Year

I ordered a new frame from Flyrite Choppers http://flyritechoppers.com/ the other day, I have really liked the bikes that have been built on this frame, I'll see if I can be the first to build one I don't like.

I'll try and chronicle the build on here as I get work done and have time to post. I have been collecting parts for a few years to put together a rigid, nothing major but its usually the little things that sneak up on you. I'll make some parts and find the others.

Here is the blank canvas, the Smoking Gun for Evo Sportster motors. Picture was stolen from Flyrites web page.

The only thing that I have in mind to do is long shotgun drags, maybe with fishtail tips or maybe not, I do like the combo. I have a few tanks and will probably go with a Frisco style sporty tank, but may consider a mustang style too. Lots of choices and things to decide on.

Busy time

of the year. I hope everyone has had a very merry Christmas, I know we have had a good one.

I haven't updated the blOg in a while, things have gotten crazy, I was layed off for a littel while and trying to catch up on some projects then we got dumped on with snow and my shop was all but froze up, then they called me back to work for a few days so I really havent had much time to do anything especialy on the intraweb, thats how life works LOL. I am off for a few days so I may dig out my shop and get in there tomorrow and try getting a few things done.

I am working on a tank for my scooter with a little Frisco flavor, I had the filler neck and cap made for about two weeks, I just need to do some welding and decide how I am going to finish it. I also am in the process of making a neck and cap for another guy who puts my tank choppin' to shame.
Yeah I know I need to clean my work bench off, I work in there, when I get time.

Nice weather...

NOT. It warmed up to about 28* today and when the sun went down the temp went with it. I was going to do some work in the shop tonight and found this nice little shot, I took a couple a pics straightened some things out and went indside, it was 21* in there, screw that shit. I suppose it wouldn't be bad if we were somewhere east but we live 15 miles from the Pacfic Ocean. We got about 5" of snow yesterday and now they are talking just cold till tomorrow night and then snow for a few more days and cold for atleast the next week, I want my summer back.
