Blog Slack = Progress

Sorry for the lack of posts this week but for the first time in a long time I've been able to mostly concentrate on my own bike and it's been super fun. The kind of fun that makes it hard to sleep at night because you just want to get back at it.
I finally have the tank mounted to my liking, the new Biltwell Stainless seat hinge welded up, wheel spacing dialed in and few other random weldings finished up.
First thing Monday, a Time Sert installed in the rear head for the upper motor mount, set & weld the fender mounts, on & on.
I'm really unsure on a paint direction for this bike?
The second run of Bench*Mark finned points covers are machined, media blasted & ready for me to give them some love. There's 10 sportster bolt pattern & 10 shovel. This will probably be the last of the finned covers as we're ready for a different design.
I'll be posting them in the Chop Cult classifieds and letting everyone know when here on BCM.
Good weekend to you.

Thanks Lime's, Update your blog once in a while I dig your stuff and it's always cool to see what your working on.

Marshall: Even if the were upside down they're staying that way The only top load adjusters on my bikes are my race bikes. Work performance tells me I can run them anyway I want and that chunky adjusting collar is stay down low. I'll let the "fool" thing slide this time.

Just bustin your balls Marshall.

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. They promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
