Shop Build In
I am really ready to trade in the woodworking tools for some metal manipulators.
I'd love to be able to say we're close but that's not the case, most of the big work is done so the rest should move along a little faster.

I stumbled across this "Rally Fighter" the other day and it immediately reminded me of Jim Garners 72 Olds Cutlass Banshee.
I thought both look real fun.

One of my all time favorite photos.
Jeff Emig turning left, feet on the pegs, dragging a grip in that loamy soil.
The original image never surfaced all that's ever been seen was this small photo that was scanned from Cycle World.

Well, EDR has been put back on the calender for 2011.
I liked it a Hell of a lot better when it was like this.
And now it's big like this.
I guess that the nature of these things?
but there's always a bunch reminders why you went in the first place.
So I may attend on my own limited schedule?

Well, over the past week or so we've made some good progress on the new shop. We need button up some wiring & plumb the air and the machine shop will be up and running. The retail area has been gutted. We exposed a few of the old brick walls & had them blasted, the tile goes down today, on & on. The amount of crap we've hauled out of this old building is a bit overwhelming but we're getting there.
This wood stuff's not so fun & I'm already really wanting to get back to moving metal.

I don't often post videos but this Rouser Rob edit turned out great & gives you a good idea of what went down at SCR2.

There's some big changes on the horizon for Bench*Mark & BCM.
We've taken on a new shop space in downtown Carlsbad Village that includes a machine shop, bike build area, a retail space as well as some office areas.
Currently it's a complete shit hole with a ton of potential and a decent amount of character.
We're thinking with quite a bit of work we'll have a great place to work and hang out.
So here's some images I took today which are of the entrance, retail space and the machine shop area all of which we're working on first.
I'll be posting our progress over the next couple of months and when were ready I hope you guys will come by.
I'm already tired.

After the few days of madness leading up to to Slab City we were really ready to just chill, so that was the plan. With zero miles on the sportster the ride out was a little nerve wracking but she ran great and nothing fell off.
With the exception of not being able to get some much needed sleep the whole night was a blast & the ride home was epic.
Thanks to Bill, McGoo & Mike D
it was Great Weekend
