Winter Motorcycle Projects

“I built it with my dad” it’s cold during the winter where I live, which makes it the perfect time for a ground-up bike project! This year I’m building a 45″ flathead-powered bobber with my youngest daughter. My first chop (back in 1971!) was a handshift 45 flathead. And while this engine is as dependable […]

Have you ever known somebody who always seemed to be down on his luck, some-one who lives under a perpetual gray cloud? When I was in high school, we had a guy like that. If he didn’t have bad luck, he’d have no luck at all. Fittingly, we nicknamed him Chief Gray Cloud. Another friend […]

Kurt’s Led Sled Custom Sportster Bobber Bites Him Back

Kurts-Led-Sled-bobber-2

Blame it on the Wapatui punch, a glorious blend of gut-wrenching, largely grain spirits, Red Bull, and cheap fruit slung together, shaken, and stirred, in a trash can.
