So far so good here ! Working alone on the bikes in my shop and feeling fine ! knocking out services and tires and stuff to keep these bikes ready to take you guys back to work again soon I hope ... Not letting anyone in the shop now to keep us all safe but bikes can be safely dropped off and picked up outside . and yup , im wiping them down when they are dropped off and before they get picked up ... Pretty busy and full here but Im trying my best to keep 2 open spots rolling to do services on the bikes cuz so many of you ride to work and home and some are still working yet and need that bike for transportation . all good and getting thru this one day at a time ! ..... I miss being able to hang and talk to my buddies and have some laughs 😕 but at least we are all ok so far as I know ! See you all again after this is over and we can swap stories again and laugh soon I hope and get back to normal .......💀

Not the best weather and virus is in the air but nothing stops bike people ! Bikes coming in and out of here like crazy and more on the incoming list ! Good for you guys I just hope nobody brings this virus here at this point of being so busy in the shop . im laying low here and don't leave much to go out in public , trying to stay off the list of infected to keep the bikes moving here for y'all ........This will all pass .......... Mike 💀

Winter is over I know but does anyone know anyone who burns waste oil in a waste oil heater ? Have quite a few gallon jugs full of used Harley oil from oil changes and more coming if anyone is interested in stocking up for next winter , nuclear winter , asteroid strike , armageddon, etc.... My guy that used to take it all for years sold his business so I need a new source to get rid of used oil .... Hit me up if u know someone ! ............ Mike 💀

Jackhammer true dual exhaust system on !!! Air cleaner and new ECM next and then fireup . Can't wait to hear this bike come to life and run ! Too much time spent with the Police and parades for this bike in its past life ! Time to crack this old girl open and make some beautiful noise soon ......

Gary's 84 Shovelhead I built out of boxes of parts years ago ... Was cleaning her up a bit to send her home after accident damage and it caught my eye for one more pic before she goes home ......... This F**king bike is beautiful as the day I delivered it so many years ago ! Thanx Gary for taking such good care of her all these years . beautiful machine brother and I can see how much you love this bike ........💀

Busy winter here and bikes coming in and out all winter ... Thank you to the Creator for not giving me sub zero days to have to test ride them ! So far so good this winter but c'mon springtime !

Fired up the Patrick 120" today . I haven't heard her run for a long time since the original owner had to sell her some years ago . dialed in now and sounding as wicked as I remember her ! Of course now snow is coming this week to keep me from a much anticipated test ride after so many years 😕 if I get new throttle cable before snow im happy 😉

Perfect end to a day in the shop . Vince's steak sandwich food truck at Dries hardware today ! So good !!!❤

Scotts 08 police parade bike he just picked up . in for first service under his watch and very overused black oil in all 3 holes . great idea to have these bikes serviced immediately so you know your fluids are fresh and also its just good period to have the bike gone over before jumping on and heading down the road ! Cheap insurance ! Protect your investment !

Wow . I built this for my buddy Chris probably 15 or more years ago . I haven't seen it in years since he sold it to buy a rig and get into trucking . Paul bought it and it hasn't been gone over and put back on the street for awhile but its in now for a complete go over and get her fired up and back on the road again this coming Spring . Déjà vu working on this bike . I remember every bit of building it yet and its going to be awesome to take her out on a few test rides , its been so many years since I rode this bike ..........💀

Street Glide handlebars done just in time for the rain ! ..... I did get a Heritage Springer in late yesterday for a quick fuel / carb jet issue and was in the shop 7 am and got that one figured out and delivered it a couple miles away and made it just as the rain started ! Perfect timing and at least got one home before it got wet .......💀

Have not posted in awhile cuz its jammed up busy here yet in November... Working on Austin's Street Glide Apehanger conversion then on to firing up an 84 Lowrider that was in a no injury accident and getting that bike back home and then onto the next bike , a 127 cubic inch that needs new rocker box gaskets and assorted things ... Keep riding guys ! Not too cold yet to take a rip ! The bikes love this cool air !

Getting older Blows ! Of all the things I do here in a week . moving bikes in and out . working under them in twisted up positions to get to stuff . Picking up Motors , wheels etc... I lean down today to get to a hard to get stupid little oil hose clamp behind an oil pump and Wham !!!! Pulled back muscle on right side ! Spasming pretty good for the past 2 hours , hope I don't have to sneeze today !!! Looks like another weekend of resting up my back for next week 😕 glad I got a 200 + mile bike ride to the Pocono Mountains last week at least . hope I can sleep it off and get out on the bike again this weekend anyway ? They run so good in the Fall temps !........💀

Wish I had a full pic but we just did some minor adjustments and worked on her in the trailer and I couldn't get a full photo ..... Killer nice Panhead done in the classic styling of the era ! Timeless beauty ! ........ 💀

Some guys need more than 1 bike ... These are 2 for the same owner . The Lowrider in the back is bike #1 for Bobby and bike #2 for him is the green 77 Sportster which is getting torn down soon for the full rebuild and clean customizing treatment . bike #3 is out there somewhere waiting for us to find it and save it but that is for next winters project ....... You're making me jealous Bob ! ..........💀

Aaaah golden moments at the bike shop ! Guy comes in and I have a customer at the moment but he decides to talk anyway .... He says : " who would ride a piece of sh*t like that bike there ? " ..... Me : " the big guy standing next to you that is about to rip your head off and mail it in a box to your mommy ! " ..... 😆 love this place !

I wish I had captured this on video ... Big dude ! I mean Big dude stops at my shop today and we are talking outside and I see a praying mantis crawling in his hair towards his face so I calmly say " dude there is a big praying mantis on you " ....... The scream that came out of him was exactly the scream of a 6 year old girl who just got that Christmas present she wanted all year !!! I just couldn't place that bloodcurdling high pitched scream with this huge tough looking guy as he took off running trying to shake that mantis off him ..... I'm still f'n dying laughing an hour later lol ... I would never embaress someone on social media but.... if I knew who he was this would be going viral on Facebook today .......💀

I posted a pic of the shop yesterday full of bikes and got some requests to post pics of the Chopper in that tangle of bikes loll ... Here it is , my buddy Robs custom Redneck chop ! The bike was built by Redneck Engineering and the fit and finish of the bike is awesome quality and yeah that is real gold leaf on that paintjob and the quality of the workmanship on that bodywork and paint is awesome ! Nice ride and these type of bikes are still out there on the roads today ... Its the Bobber era again for the time being but .... Choppers will never die......💀

Been awhile since I did this ! Joe is getting a pair of Custom billet wheels on his 1200 Sporty , I used to put so many custom wheels on bikes years ago before the Bobber bikes got popular and spoke wheels were the choice of my customers ... This job takes me back to15 years ago when I put these type of wheels on daily here ! Kinda cool to go back in time on Joes bike ......💀

First bath in years for this 1980 Ironhead . my prints were on every square inch of that bike from building it and at fireup stage they all get washed and then a front to back go over then the first test ride ! Pretty cool little bike considering it came out of boxes of parts . first time today that i got her out of the shop and got to walk around her and snap some pics outside ....... Test ride tomorrow then soon comes the bittersweet moment I hand the keys over to her owner and watch him leave with my creation 😕

Its been awhile since I posted on here but its been craaaazy busy here every day and simply just knocking out bikes and on to the next one ! Today was the first fire up of Danny's 1980 fully rebuilt from the ground up Resto Bobber I built for him ... Sounds great , runs great , looks great and after a few final details its road test and then back home finally ... Its been so many years that this bike sat in boxes of parts but today she lives again ... It was Danny's dads bike who passed away and now it has been completely redone as a tribute to Dad ❤ good job Danny ! .... I will post more finished pics as soon as I ride her and clean her up to go home .....
