Anybody who has tried and failed to make a three finger roll work on a banjo has to owe their humiliation to Earl.

Carburetors


Kind of hating CV carbs at the moment. Mikuni BS34's to be exact. I know, I know, once they are dialed in you will love them... The key word once, Its been five weeks and I want to get going already.

Making Some Axed Tanks


It was not easy cutting into those pan-head tanks but man oh man do I like the way they look. Yes the tunnel has been shrunk back into the surface. I need to finish the body work before I move onto ribbing the backbone. I wish someone had warned me how long it would take to do the right side tanks rear lip.

Chuck's Flathead


Chuck's (RIP) flathead, bird is currently painting the tins. I need to get them from San Miguel to Bob Kovak so that they can be striped. Only the best of the early parts were used in the creation of this bike. All of the parts are OEM Harley.

Japanese Knuckle Racers


So sweet. David often says that they are beating us at our own game, with these two I think they are making their own game.

Never Know



You never know what you are going to find on the road. On my way home from subbing I saw this 49' parked on the side of the road with the hood up. I stopped to see what was wrong and a gentleman popped out and said she died, well long story short we figured it was his new electric fuel pump so we went around the corner and picked up his pickup. Low and behold when we returned she fired right up. I followed him home were he showed me his other Merc a yellow 51' two door. He has lived at the sky park around the corner from me since there were still fig orchards surrounding him. Fun way to meet your neighbors.

Concern for Others?


Watch the guy in the red shirt who hears the accident but runs over to take photos with his phone. Really? Is a facebook update more important than another rider?

CA DMV


As any Californian two or four wheel fan will note, that going to the CA DMV is less then enjoyable. Typically you wait hours to do a five minute transaction. Recently the DMV has sought measures to improve this horribly inefficient system. As of the summer 2011, anyone that has something to do at the DMV can make an appointment which they will serve over anyone else. Previously you still had to wait like everyone else, making the appointment pointless. in the new system and I am not kidding, you will literally walk in, walk past the line for a number and are allowed to be handled first. Today the average wait was two hours, I was there for a total of ten minutes eight of which was a transaction. As long as this system holds it is not worth going and standing in line, just make an appointment.

Knowing Morrissey, he would also make the addendum that all of Britain stop eating meat as well.

Used to Work With This Guy



I don't think he will teach again, ever. Does she seriously believe that she is an adult relationship? Secondly, her father died eleven years ago, do you think that has any to do with it?
