Trust no one!

Dam.  I decided to pop off the cam cover on the pan to see whats shakin and much to my dismay heres what I  discovered.  You'll notice that the idler gear in the first picture is sitting off center on the shaft. Thats because some numb skull decided not to bother installing a bushing in the gear. You can see in the second photo where the gear was cutting into the case. luckily no major damage was caused as there appears to be fair low miles on the rebuild.  Hopefully this is the only incompetence i come across....

Well not quite chrome but a hell of alot cheaper and quicker than the shiny stuff.  1 part buffing compound 3 parts elbow grease, 4 beer and a whole lotta Public Enemy (i was in the mood)  YEEAA BOYEE!! before and after pics.

Quit mocking me!!!

Playing around with some of the parts laying around. Not exactly what i'm gonna run. Yes that is realistic fire on the wassell and yes that is jesus walking on water.

Axle Plates

Got a set of OG axle plates from Bernie. The right one was damn near perfect but the left one looked like a dog chewed it up and shit it out. The axle adjusted had been gouged out and a piece of hex stock was pigeon shit welded in its place. I'm kicking myself in the ass for not taking a before pic but heres what they look like after four hours of rework. I completely rebuilt the axle adjuster on the left one as well as the lower horizontal rib. Also sweated and grinded off a 4 inch piece of frame rail out of each frame boss. Turned out pretty fine i gotta say. just gotta add a hold back tab for the juice drum. Dam near inmopssible to find an original harley rigid in these parts of the world, so i guess ill build one from what i got.


We had such an amazing time in California over the last 10 days, i can't wait to go back. Huntington Beach was so cool, Got to check out Loser Machines Chops and rods show in Carlsbad. (badass!), Long Beach Swap! (yes!!), Spent and amazing day on the beach in Oceanside. And of course Mickey (the kids had a blast). All in all we had a rad vacation, gonna start planning our next visit. Ill try and go through our 800 photos and post some highlights including pics from the LM show.
