Improving the look of a local Ironhead

Spent the past few days doing some frame work. Welded in a hardtail section that Dano fabbed up and raked the frame out alittle. Vast improvement on the lines of this bike. I'm liking it.

Update Time

Picked up a `42 WLA motor awhile back and rebuilding it has become my newest addiction. Why is it the furthest you need to pull them from the grave, the more I'm into them? Weakness or Flaw?

I'm gathering parts to assemble the flywheels and line lapping the cases.
Also on a bright note. While playing in a sea of Flathead parts I did manage to get the cylinders bored and fitted for the Shovel/Servi project.

I won't go into great detail about the weekend (go here )
Spent Saturday and Sunday morning in Ada for the second annual R4YL party. Spent most of my time at the VFW. That is where camp was set-up and the night time entertainment of Left Lane Cruiser and Some other band (Sorry didn't catch the name) They both ROCKED!
Got to meet alot of good people and drank more than my share of Bush Light. Also Dano won the build-off With a Smoking Hot `78 XS650

I would like to thank Joel and Bridgitte, Juan, and all the sponsors (rock paper scissors- RULES)
I'll throw the offer out there. If you would like help seting up, running, or organizing next year. Please let me know, I would be glad to help.

I'm Back!

Gotta love summer! Not much time for the internet. Riding the Pan, Wauseon swap, work, R4YL party, and the beer. Yes the beer!
Work on the Shovel/Servi is slow. But on the upside the Pan is running GREAT!
I do have a COOL part I need to sell.

Old CCE Cast Aluminum Pans! Polished then Two-Toned with Gloss Black PowderCoat!
$400 will put them right into your hot little hands.
Shoot me an e-mail if your interested.

Progress on the Shovel/Servi

Decided to bump her up to 80 cube. Popped in some OEM 80 inch flywheels, Scrounged up some Bigger jugs (still need to bore to correct size) and some short skirt pistons.
Slam Bang and an extra 6 cubic inches. Might come in handy someday.

Also have been working on a different transmission case. Got to thinking about that 12 1/2" mainshaft hanging out there without a bearing support. Decided to use a `69 4-speed case. That way I can still use my handshift lid and my internals. But, most importantly I can add an outer bearing support.

I'll post up some new pics soon.

Shovel/Servi Project

Always tons of projects around here. The one that seems to be getting all the action lately is my Shovelhead/ Servi-car blend. Using a `73 Shovel motor, Kick only 4 speed gear box with a hand shift lid, `73 Swing-arm frame with a new handmade rear section, Juice brake Servi-car rear end, Panhead drum brake front-end, and rear wheels from a `35 Ford.

Will post updated pics soon. Yup, that's my Pan in the background. Sweet huh?
