I wish I could say it's hard to believe that the highest court of this land committed FRAUD against the people. They actually RE-WROTE that communist bill AND CHANGED IT TO A TAX!!!! in order to call it constitutional. I wish I was surprised, I wish that the people would be outraged enough to take to the streets and demand this travesty be resolved and throw the activist judges off the bench. But I am not surprised, I had some small glimmer of hope but that hope has been dashed as I watch what was once the greatest idea that man has ever had circles the drain. A sad sad commentary on what we have become.......Is anyone surprised?

Well here she is, all done up in black and tan. Changes include, new black paint, quarter fairing, relocated front master from a racing cart, new "cafe inspired" fender, re-dyed leather seat with leopard pattern (first time we ever tried that, came out pretty good) and some new pins by Itchy. I should have been able to get this thing together a lot faster but with my stupid back it took me fucking forever. I still ain't done, I've yet to put gas in it to check for leaks and I don't know if the battery is going to take a charge. Guess I'll figure all that out in the morning before we take off for BORN FREE. If any of you wacko's out there wanna ride out with me and Dougy Friday in the late afternoon/evening shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your cell number and we can make arrangements. We have a room out there in Irvine a few miles from Oak Cyn. Ranch with floor space to spare. Get up bright and early Saturday, have some breakfast and go to the show.
We will be leaving from the heart of the San Fernando Valley and heading straight out the 5 if you wanna meet up along the way. Hope to see some of you kats at the show!!!

Today I masked and re-shot my "Freakshow" black. This is a quick and dirty paint job because I just wanna sell this deal and make some more room in my garage. With my fucked up back I just can't ride this bike any longer. I need something with some support for my back. So the Freakshow must go so I can put the dough in my long bike. It's getting a tall back rest in hopes that I can continue to ride something besides a full dresser with air ride. I'll have a bunch of pictures posted here when the bike is put back together and I will have it at BORN FREE. If interested you know how to get a hold of me. I'd also be interested in trades of equal or lesser value, pre-smog vehicles, even non running projects if the value is there. I'm thinking 3500 bucks is a good place to start the negotiations. Watcha got that I can't live without?
Here she is in her last incarnation. I rode it like this for about 2 years. This thing will outrun a 1200 Sporty no problem, straight and true.
Here it is when it was a little more conventional.
Then I got a bug in my ass and decided I didn't really like that alloy fender with the sprung seat arrangement. So I fabbed up this tail, made a new light and added the quarter fairing. I also relocated the front master and shortened the brake line. I then figured it needed some sparkly stuff so I polished the side covers, cut down the clutch cover, rebuilt and polished the tops on the carbs etc etc......I think I've taken it just about as far as you can take it. Should look sharp with it's fresh black HOK paint.

Today Doug and I went to the L.A. Roadsters Fathers day show in Pomona. Man that is a lot of fucking walking, they have stretched that show out all over the fair grounds. A lot of people had already left from yesterday but it was still a good time for any kind of motorhead. Here are a few shots of cars I liked.....
