Been checking out the place and like all the pix. Makes for great inspiration. I have two projects I'm working on at the moment.

1. 78 RD400E


2. 74 CL360 Scrambler


So far the RD has been a challenge. Just yesterday I fabed up slugs and started the process of fitting new tubing for the frame where one of the previous owners had cut the back half off. It is now a mono shock setup so the frame parts I'm making will only serve as a seat mount. Actually, I bought the seat first for the CL project, but when I saw the hacked up RD I knew that was it. Little thing was in BAD need of some love. And I know this seat would look good on her.

The Scrambler project I picked up in 06. Did a lot of work on the engine and carbs. Never did get her going. Had all I could do just to keep my daily runners going. So the other week I dusted her off and have her running pretty good. Going to just put around on it the way it is till I finish the RD400.

I live and breath motorcycles. If ya don't believe me ya can check out one of my old blogs. Lots of pix. Mostly chopper stuff, but always a nice cafe when I see one. Also alot of vintage road racing stuff. n*************.com and b***********com [EDITED BY 650zed (ADMIN)] . I don't run them any more but there are thousands of pix Ive taken over the years.

Didnt even think about that. Good point though. Not a spamer. Haha. Serious though. Its been months since I even looked at the old blog. Set up some friends to just keep it alive. I had closed it down for a while but realized that its the only place I have most of the pix stored on so I put them back up. Just taking all those pix and posting them took up so much time, I would rather spend in the garage working on bikes.

Went to the Cretins party Sat night in LA. Good time! There were a ton of cafe bikes. Didnt think to bring the camera though since I quit the blog thing. Had my gf take a few with her phone though. Heres the one that came out.

These are some of the bikes they were running at the Willow Springs Moto Classica last week. Good stuff!
Just wish I had took the pic. What I saw was amazing.
