tattoo armrest

I make these up once in a while for the local tattoo guys. The heavy base is sand or lead filled. It raises and lowers smoothly and easily. The top pivots 180 degrees and it swivels 360 degrees too. The wide base fits around those fancy barber chairs so the customer and the artist can be totally comfy.

Another Hardtail

Did this Evo Sportster hardtail yesterday. It's a Leadsled Customs tail section. Looks like it's gonna make for a nice bike. Just got to get the front shortened up a bit.

Another old frame will live. BSA restoration.

Here's a 1955 BSA factory dirt track frame we were asked to restore. you will see there was a few pieces missing. We bent new rails, pressed in an oil pump loop, fabricated all the motor mounts, seat mount, seat post pieces, and repaired a bunch of little spots too. Quite a difference.

Headlamp bracket

I was given a design to build a triumph headlamp bracket. Some machine work and welding and this is the result. I think it's pretty cool. Once it's topped off with the vintage Unity spot light I think it will be just freakin' awesome.

James' cb750

Been working on this one for a while. There's something about this bike that makes me think it likes it here. No matter how many times I try to make progress it just seems like it moves backwards. Hoping that posting about it wakes it up a bit and it finishes itself. HAHA. Anyway, paint is by Ryzart. Can you dig it?


Just a simple die I machined for a customer to flare some exhaust pipes. Mild steel 45 degree angle. Needs to be hardened still but it should serve well.
