Aaron Ross is a Bad Ass on a BMX & I like his Honda too.


A spur of the moment home office makeover has put a damper on any bike building & interweb use.
This time of year I always feel like I should be at the track anyway so getting nothing I planned done is the norm.

I spent a good portion of the day making two stainless pipe clamps.
You'd think I'd get used to the fact that everything takes me at least twice as long as I think it should.
Now to get everything matched, lined up & make some brackets to the clamps.
I think Bob's going with black pipes so these should look pretty nice, maybe tumbled?

The other day I found these rings at the hardware store however I wasn't sure what to do with them but I brought a few home anyway.

Made by Hand / No 2 The Knife Maker

Cut Brooklyn

I know I posted this on the BCM facebook page last month but yesterday while trying to do some interview stuff for the 6 Over movie I was reminded of Joel Bukiewicz's explanation of why & how he does what he does.

Joel did a great job of putting the feeling and thought process to words, worth watching for sure.

No Knee Knockin

One of my big twin pet peeves is hitting my knee on the air cleaner.
My left knee rests nicely on the expensive paint job that is my tank & the other is ten inches out in wind.
So in our never ending quest for betterment we somehow knocked off nearly a 1/2" of the width of our current air cleaner, pictured is the first sample.
I've got a good amount of miles on this one and it's feeling real nice.
We'll see where it ends up.

Dave Young Carb Jewels.

Interweb pal Dave Young machines these beautiful stainless idle/enricher/ accelerator adjust screws in his garage.
Dave also carries the dress up hardware for the rest of your carburetor.
Check them out here: 33
or hit up Dave directly.


The ongoing clutch dilemma.
Well, it's closer.
Now I'm not liking the feel of the action & if does stay like this we'll have to come up with a stop so it won't fall backwards into the belt.
However it was fun to make.

David Mann 2011

I'm sure there will be a ton of event photos posted today but here's a few details that caught my eye.

David Mann Show

Camped in Malibu with friends, cold hangover ride to the show, a full day of bro'in down topped off with a big dinner with Biltwell/Chop Cult, Lowbrow, Four Aces.
Good times.

I had to make up a display in time for the David Mann show this weekend so this afternoon I sacrificed a floater rotor & busted this thing out.
If your going to be at the show stop by Lowbrow, say hi to Josh & check out the goods.
Tomorrow my bike is getting some love.

Back To The Drawing Board, Again

Let's use 1/4" SS rod. OK, we need a stainless clevis,
well we have some round bar and an angle grinder.
It's too flexi let's try a gusset and blend in all nice.
It's still too flexi
Get the thick stuff out.
Now it looks stupid AND still has a lot of flex.
One more idea to try before it's sticking out of the sheetrock on the south side wall.

Coming Soon

Cast Ignition Covers
are in the works.

(SOLD) One Off #3 Super E/G

I missed one off weekend, sorry.
I did up this pointy unit yesterday & it's up in the store ready to go.
