The Pre Sturgis Party

The party went well.  Not a very big crowd this year but oh well.  This thing is always fun, and I get to see friends I don't normally see.  Oh yah, and meet some new ones.  Milwaukee Mike, and Kayla Koeune came from Milwaukee.  Kayla is an artist that paints motorcycle subject matter.  Her stuff is very cool check it out at .  You all should know Mike.  He works for Cycle Source Magazine.  Danny rode in from Canada again.  It is always good to see him, a real good cat.  The famous Panhead Billy showed up and hung with us. This guy is a legend if you have never met him, but I am honored to have had the chance.  Of course the Chop Shop crew was pretty much all here too.  Ditty, Bill Mize, Jerry, Lil Mike, Turbo, Ian, Sketchy, Josh, Steve The Sleeve, Land Shark, an me.  Was a good night.  I had to do some welding on Kayla's Pipes, the mount for her thunderheader broke on the way here.  Danny also blew a brake line but we got it fixed up thanks to Al at Al's Custom Cycles.  He had what we needed.  Here are a couple of pics.

Another Smokey Night in J Town

Dave and Cork burnin em down on a Saturday night.  We were all havin some beers last Sat. and the boys got a little wild.  Cork just put a set of N4 cams in the Sporty so he felt he needed to show them off, and Dave lit up the old shovel.  All in good fun.
Check out Dave.  Looks kinda like Wolf Man Jack.  Ha ha.

Hey all.  I have decided to sell my Hurco VM1 machining center.  I just dont use it enough and am planning on going back to a manual mill.  If you have questions or know anyone who is interested let me know.  Give me a call at 712-223-2833 and we can talk.

The Cork Skrew, Cut Down Cam Cover

We have been workin on the Skrew a little as of late.  We decided to change the looks of the motor from the right hand side.  Cork bought a set of early ironhead rockerboxes that will get a good polishin and find their way onto the bike.  We also decided to cut down the cam cover.  So here are a few images of the cam cover mod.
Here is the initial layout, and some random crap on the drafting table.
The close up
The cover was then rough cut in the band saw.
Then some diegrinder magic to blend in the lines a shade, and smooth out the cut edge.
Next we will make a skirt that will get TIG welded around the cut portion and Bobs Yer Uncle.  Stay tuned for the progress on this project, It is comin togeather fast now.  Lots of cool fab stuff.

Seasons Greatings

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, or maybe Seasons Greetings.  What ever you prefer, to you and all of yours.  Spent my christmas fighting a house fire part of the day and the rest with the girls.  My prayers go out to the family that lost their home.  On Christmas?, that sucks.  Every one made it out ok though.  Oh, by the way I am a volunteer Fire Fighter.

Well the hand is healing well, and I got the splint off.  Maybe somthing will get done now.  Spending alot of time on the Jaguar project, but I got some bike stuff going.  I know I say this alot but I will try to get some pics up soon.

Well I guess thats all for now.
