I like Velocity Stacks!

Major Score!

For about 2 years I've been craving this original 1930's Indian front end. Just got it yesterday from a friend. Great doing business with you!

HRD shift knob

My new custom shift knob. Original HRD valve ispection cover from the 40's. Thanks Gelson.

what good is a truck if you can't haul some ass?

At my friend Ernesto needed a hand at transporting some shelves to his new hideout.
Pretty soon they'll be filled with the coolest vintage parts for british bikes.

Another Pan Project

This is my friend Peter's shop, he's making killer hardtail frames for Sportsters and other kick ass projects. Here's a few shots of a once trashed out frame that he's bringing back to life.

Someone had the bright idea to make this sweet Panhead frame into a softail!! Too bad I didn't take any "before" shots. Stay tuned...

Tech tip

The little buggers where pitiful at best, believe it or not the clutch actually worked  somehow.
these is what the cork in my old discs looked like after so many years of faithful service...

Last weekend I decide to rebuild the clutch discs on my 51 Ariel 350 single.
Replacement discs are very hard to find and cost good money.
The original ones are made of cork, so why not use the wine corks I've been saving for so long?
The cost of this endeavor? ZERO!!!
Now that's more like it.
Cut the cork in little pieces all the same size, if possible and all a little larger (I'd say 30% larger than the hole on the discs.
Boil them up for about 5 minutes, make a nice cork tea out of them (also known to be good if you can't stay out of the shitter)
The cork becomes nice and soft and don't hold any heat, so you can convince them quite easily into the discs.
Then all you have to do is grind them down to size , oil them up and voila! brand new discs for $ZERO!!
