62 Ford

So the frame for the 62 is coming along nicely now.

I worked on it all day yesterday. Set in the mock motor to see what needs done.

Marked up what needs to be cut out for the oil pan to sit in, and went to work.

Notched out for the pan, then set in some new pieces and got it all back together. Also did some work on the rear end as well.

Not the prettiest work, but it is coming along and will be stout as fuck.

The Dungeon ain't just for race bikes and rude Harleys though, while I was sweating my ass off like a nigger whore in a Southern Baptist church... Big Mike was doing some "gun smithing" for Walt. He needed his big .44 mag to be converted to a pocket model. So off with the barrel and grinding down the hammer.

Been busy as fuck the past few weeks. The Dungeon has been swamped with work. Mike's been working on the blue prints for the pick up and the dragster.

Welding up some of Shorty's shit. The little munchkin is only about 4 foot tall in boots and tippy toes. So we took his 650 chop and niggered him up some new bars to fit his short ass. Then made him some mids that he could use. Before he could barely even touch the controls. New battery box and plate, chopped the pipes to give it a little more sound, relocated the kick stand, and rewired the lights.

Nothing worse than trying to make custom headers for a hot rod without having the god damned car on the property! So it's weld a bit, then send them back to have more parts marked, then back to cut and weld. Never ending circle. Good thing this fucker has some cash because this is way too much time on a set of fuckin headers.

Supposed to have the motor and tranny mocked up, and the front end on this frame by Friday. Just me on this one.

It was spring break for the kiddos this past week, so Randa came to work with me for most of the week. That kid fuckin loves everything about motorcycles. She thinks cause she gets to ride on back once in a while and that because she can ride a dirt bike that she is ready for the track. Made me promise that as soon as she is old enough that I will let her ride down the track.

So between having a bunch of work, getting a shit ton accomplished and getting to sped the week with the kiddo, I guess it turned out to be a pretty fuckin sweet week.

bout time

Having issues with my rear master. Me being the lazy fuck that I am, I decided it was fucking high time that the boy learned how to change them out and bleed them. He's out of school for spring break, and around this house it's either go to school or go to work... so it's time to put his ass to work. Earn a little of the food the fucker grazes through.

Old one off, the new one on, all new banjo bolts and lines in less than an hour and I was down the road for a successful brake check. Not bad for a lazy barely 13 year old. Guess he can have cheese on his sammich tomorrow. lol

Another day at the Dungeon

So I figured I would snap a few shots while at the shop today. You would think I should have a shit ton more good pics since i carry the camera with all the time. But usually once I get there it takes all of ten minutes to be covered in oil and gas, that I have tried like hell to keep from the new cam.

One of these days I will get this fucker back on the road. With Lulu down though I have other priorities right now.

Not all fat tire bikes are gay!

Diablo getting the engine and tranny ready to mock up on the 62 Ford pick up frame. Got two Vettes to do as soon  as we finish this one out.

Diablo's bucket of nuts and bolts.

Lunch time fuckers!

That is all.

Another day in the Dungeon

Just a few shots from around the shop. Had to ride Tailgunner Tim's bike this morning so we could make a new exhaust bracket. I felt like I was on a dirt bike riding it after riding Lulu for so long.

Big Mike doing his thing.

Grizzled old fucker!

Diablo and Big Mike

The rail is still coming along. Still hording money for the transmission, and a buncha welding to go.
