Gypsy Run 6

This will be our 5th year supporting the East Coast Gypsy Run. We decided this was in order to celebrate GR6,....6,.....6. Somebody's taking home this hand made maple skate deck with Ryzart paint and graphics. Silver leaf, verigated leaf, gold leaf, and awesome stripe work. A fine addition to your living room wall. Now who's gonna get it? Best bike? Coolest flannel? Dirtiest beard? Hmmmm...........    

47 Industries. Official Biltwell dealer

We finally got our store in enough order to go ahead and become a dealer for Biltwell Products. These guys make a quality product so if you were wondering where to see it in person and your are in the 201/908/609 ish area codes then stop in and check this stuff out. Inventory will increase as we get our shelves and such in proper order.

We are also dealers for Vtwin, lowbrow customs and a few select  high quality indy companies.

Gullwing Gator box

One of our clients is an environmental research company. They wanted a box for the back of their Gator to house some equipment. We fabbed this aluminum box with a steel frame, 3 opening doors with gas charged support struts and locking bars.

Identity crisis? or...

... a real issue. Given the fact that it's Japanese I don't think it's supposed to be leaving that spot under there. Maybe the run home from Strange Days was too much for it. 50 miles of 70+ on the slab might have angered the gods a bit.  I see a surgery or transplant in my all to near future. And for those that recognize this bike, yep, that timing chain repair rig is still holding strong.

getting closer to something....

Damn, Sometimes I feel like things just won't ever end. We started the office renovations over a month ago and we are still going at it. I'm just about burned out on this crap. Staying up till 3 am painting trim sucks. Days where you can't find a nylock nut in the sea of hardware bins. Paint, rearranging, tightening up our hardware storage, cleaning, redecorating, blah, blah, blah. I swear if I have to sort much more hardware I'm gonna punch myself in the balls. Thanks to my good friend Petey for hooking us up with the new artwork for the back wall. We get the hardware shelves back together in the AM and it's back to shop work again.

While all that is going on we are still in full work mode. Here's some 2 wheelers we are working on.

Honda cb350 we built a few years back for a good friend. Due to some unfortunate situations it had to sit outside and was not seeing use. It's in for a freshening up and get it fired. Back in service soon.

Shovelhead basket case for our boy Little Mikey. He bought a complete and really dirty stocker for a good price and the chop is on. Nothing fancy, just a down and dirty chop with one purpose: getting there.

I guess it's a "pile" or a "basket case" now isn't it?
