Bigger Bikes! 

Howdy Folks!

Boy it's been a long time since we talked! Anyway some stuff happened. Some was good, some was bad, almost none of it will feature heavily in the short excerpts of my life that flash before my eyes when I'm headed to the Big Workshop In The Sky.

I just wanted to share a few pics of some of the projects that have been happening during all that life that happened.

So, without further ado, here we go!

Ossian Road Trip with Braxton 




Braxton and I decided to make the Donut Run again Saturday. The weather was awesome, and not all that hot for August. We ended up clocking about 40 miles, round-trip. Here are a few pictures.

Yamaha SH-50 (1995) Project 

This scooter was an impulse buy, which I must admit, I sort of regretted when I got it home. However, I've decided to move ahead with a rebuild. Here are some pictures of the bike as it was when I got it:





After some basic mechanical tuning, I decided the paint was just not good enough. There were also several cracks and breaks in the plastic that needed attention. So, the body panels had to come off...



Then it was time for a lot of sanding, plastic welding, and primer...



After talking with my son, we determined that the bike had the potential to be an Urban Assault Scooter (in case of zombies). So, what could be more fitting than a nice O.D. Green rattle-can paint job?



The new seat cover is on it's way, but here's what she looks like for now...

Well, we've sold the SH-50. It was great while it lasted, but just too hard to find parts to fit. Here's what it looked like when we finished...
