    Yamaha RD 350 Project

    As some of you know I have this ancient little smoker that's been languishing in the back of my shop for years. I finally decided to do something with it and took it to Chop Shop in Keller for a reconstruction. They got it back together and called to tell me something (phone ID) and today I...

    Trophy 1200 Project Update

    I decided I wanted to get the seat either repaired or replaced. Sadly when I checked Fleecebay the only options were used units they wanted $200 to $250 plus shipping. Surely re-upholstering couldn't be that much. Wrong. The quote I got was $298.00 "out the door." Dilemma, buy a used seat...

    Trophy 1200 Project

    Well being a sucker for project bikes really hits you in the wallet. I started looking today at what I wheeled up on my Handy Lift last Thursday. The guy I bought it from has never ridden it, as he bought it from someone in New Jersey and had the bike shipped to him. It was a non-running...

    Latest Project: Honda 305 Scrambler restoration

I had restored a couple a few years back and sold them, this one's for me. I located a candidate in Kentucky and after a two day trip, it was home and...

    Hi guys, as the heading reads... 'Project 'Hydra'. I renamed my footboard conversion on my 2014 Roadster to Hydra because as soon as I solve one problem I seem to create another two. When I'm finished I'll do a proper step by step info sheet with some of the things I've had issues with. Anyway...

    Working on an Intake project

    So...there are a lot of air intake solutions for the rocket so far. They all work, as expected. Not a single one, however, allows for the adjustment of intake runner length, or incorporates anything more than a nod to smoothing the intake air flow. This design will allow for simple adjustment...
