I think I am in love!



This is "Dixie", I am in love!



I posted another pic of her years ago, this I first learned to know from Cris Sommer-Simmons book "the American Motorcycle girls".

OK, reposting the "other" pic dont hurt.

What is next?

I feel quite uneasy this fall, no major projects, and just some minor rebuilds / repairs / modifications that ought to be done until next spring on my already done HD`s.

I consider starting up a project that have slept for years, a 1921 Harley Davidson road racer replica.

What it takes!


Made this jig to bend the stainless tubing to make a luggage rack for my Knuckle head.


Tube bending jig and bending tool.


Tube installed in jig.


Bending the 12mm tubing as if made of butter.


Tubing is done in the jig, then its just to make another one.


Tubing ends x 4.


Welded!
  

Mudguard mounts, 1`st stage.


Testing the mudguard mounts.


Original Buco jewels from Easy Russ, I think I`m addicted. Make the mudguard mounts look quite fancy?

Cutdown, first time out!


Looking good with the Carmen Werk steering brake.








From now named "The Muroc Special"




Bånn Gass #1 , classic motorcycle dirt track racing!

Bånn Gass #1, is/was a brand new local event, a brainchild of Morten with good help from C&G, members of The Rivals Scooter Club and NMK Kristiansand.



And what an event this became, this even if new and the fact that it is very hard to organize anything pulling crowds in the Southern of Norway.
Pit`s where filled up with enthusiasts from as far off as Oslo and Stavanger, old old bikes and not so old bikes where ready to race on the gravel track.
Top that with a couple of hundreds of spectators and many many motorcycle riders from all variations of the biker scene. Vintage bikes came, cafe racers, custom bikes and touring bikes, this was enjoyable for the lot.

We, the participants had the best time, friendship and "not too serious racing", wrenching and talking.

Enjoy a selection of pictures below from Bånn Gass #1.
