christmas moto

after 3 days of working on motorcycles in the same clothes, I'd had enough. Nathan and I put in some serious time on the exhaust shield, his tank, my tank, my RT3 forks, and various other bits and pieces. Had just a little creativity left to do a self-portrait.

As if this were a fashion ad, I'll list my outfit and source.

Jeans - Levi's - bought new, destroyed from actual work
Jacket - vintage, used, abandoned, welding jacket scavenged from McLouth steel mill in Detroit
beanie - can't remember if I found this one, or bought it. I ground score most of my headwear.
shoes - timberland something or others. timbs last a long time.

That's my impression of the evil stare of Vigo the Carpathian from Ghostbusters II.

It's Vigo! You are like the buzzing of flies to him!

RT3 new exhaust shield

Just about finished fabbing this new exhaust shield. Made from 5mm 304 stainless round stock and stainless sheet. The outer edge of the shield is a single piece of round stock I bent on my vice.
