Square forks





are a rare breed...

"drive your garbage wagon to work - day!"

20min. shakedown drive to work aroused a couple of problems that need to be fixed. As always there's a gas leak from the right tank and the carb probably needs some adjusting.
And I keep tightening all those damned bullet lights!!!
I've got 8 more lights and a couple of antenna's to add soon!

Don't laugh!!!

my old C50 moped is still alive! This was an ongoing project from age 17 & up! A friend of mine wanted a moped-tour tomorrow, so I got it out of storage, and it was running within 10 meters of pushing (on flat tires!) Changed out the gasline, changed the fluids & plug and it's all good to go! I've driven it across the streets now one time, and I still can't believe I used to ride this "chick magnet" all over the place!

It's still fun to have a bike that I've put so much love in at the time (despite it's appearence) and I think I will keep it around for decades to come! It used to have loads more crap hanging off of it on the rear, but that got lost along the line...

Tomorrow will be a blast, drinking beer while driving 40km /hour with a bunch of friends!

BADASS


As seen on a blog somewhere sometime. This is what a chopper really should look like, bad to the bones!

dressin' it up!


the big brown barge is back in the shed, so I'm trying to get some inspiration. How to gain weight as fast as possible!? This picture helps!
one of the nicest full dresser pics from nostalgiaonwheels.blogspot.com a while ago..





It's a damn shame






















That bikes like this get pulled apart and sold in parts.
(these pics come from a recently ended auction on ebay)
