Just Kickers. Adventure.

We had quite the adventure this weekend. 

Juan's virgin ride on his shovel was very eventful. 
At the first gas stop his bike wouldn't start. But we were able to push start it and get all the way to Davis to a Napa store .
We did some messing with it in the hot sun on the street. And gave up and pushed started it again to attempt to get it to the camp ground. About 2 miles from Washita Hideaway and he lost all spark , dead in the water. 

We were able to get some guys with a trailer to help us get it I the campsite. 
Juan called his wife an she loaded up a trailer and began the trip up to get him 

In the meantime we got something to eat and walked around. Looked at bikes. 

After a short break. We went back to work on the shovel. And found a breaker was shorting out on seat post and the kill switch wire had broken. 
Fixed those and it started about 20 minutes before Juan's wife got there to pick him up.  

Will post pics of all the killer bikes later

Kickers bound!!

Aaron , Juan , Lupe and myself did a last minute makeover of Juan's shovel yesterday. What started with a front wheel change , turned into putting a springer on , FLH tanks and rear fender , 
A rewire and break bleed. Cue The Fixx- One thing leads to another. 

Juan will be rolling on this ! 
Aaron and I will be on our FXRs . 
Since our chops are still in pieces. 
Probably 15 bikes in this shop and 18 of em are in pieces ! 
See you folks in Oklahoma!!!

On another note any orders placed from yesterday till Sunday will ship Monday. 
Thanks for your patience.

This is our first year to sponsor this event. But look forward to supporting every year.

Good Friday shop time.

Wishing everyone a happy Good Friday. 
Whittled away at the shovel today. 
Got a stock superglide mid setup for the right side , just have to get a master cylinder. Now to fab the left side. 
Jonesy traded my 3" primary for a 1.5" setup with this cool cover. Probably will modify it a little bit. 

And test fit a polished aluminum ducktail fender that Aaron had on the shelf.

Politically incorrect shovel.

But is this thing cool or what ? 
77 superglide special edition "Confederate States of America" one year only factory custom. Was recalled because of being politically incorrect. 
This one didn't make it back for new graphics.
