want a black powdercoated 66x air cleaner for a CV carb?

I have one! Will probably do a few here and there if people want em...
If you want this one hit me up.

THAT bike!

We all seem to have seen a bike here or there that really REALLY blew us away.
I have a few, the FLAT CAT from Iron Horse eighteen or so years ago. Jeff Wright's Hammer of God Shovel. Gordons evo long bike from 1999ish. Droopys Knucklehead. The GORR MC flathead long bike.
THats the bike on my mind right now, the GORR MC flathead
Corner sent me pix of a super simple black btsv with a 20" or so over stock springer, with "Texas" bars and some red trim. it fucking BLEW me away! The other night I decided that I needed to find the pix of it and I spent 3 hours digging through every hard drive I have that is full of pictures. NO LUCK!
So I emailed Corner and i heard back from him this morning, with all the pix of it! BUT my god damned mail server is undergoing maintenance and I can't download it until tomorrow morning!!! HOLD TIGHT.

What bike in your past blew your mind?

Keep the faith!

Gasser ELCO!!!

A few new items on my Bardahl blog...

Brando rollin

with some super top secret (not for very much longer) cast parts made by me.

The Kenny Boyce Pro Street Chassis

In 1993 I did the Kenny Boyce conversion to 3 different FXR's they looked good, but i never really thought they handled as well as the FXR, I always thought the shock angle was too steep for FXR shocks.
But I worked with a guy named Rob, good guy, good mechanic. He had built one and it was unlike any other and unlike any high dollar custom out there at the time.

Sporty tank, skinny 18" rear wheel, the killer PM mags, Bub Bad Dog megaphones. This was probably the first EVO that I REALLY REALLY liked. Bad ass!

Me and Rob in Daytona 12 years later!

Good mother fucker!

Music Post!

"Down with the Crown"

This is the Acid King side of the Acid King /Altamont split lp.
I have been listening to it over and over all week, just the Acid King part
The songs, Teen Dusthead and Full Reverse both fuckin rule, pity its only 3 songs, also been listening to the record Zoroaster by them.
The band

I have also learned that I am commiting some sort of atrocity by not having the record "Busse Woods" as its supposedly absolutely fuckin mind blowingly epic. Sorry Zac!!!

Lori (lead singer/ guitar) on her Triumph, sweeeet.
