More chrome then a soup can with no label! What took so long to get to this point, that you probably can't see, is the hand made intake manifold in all that Bling some where. Its not so special, in the fact that it is basically a stock single carb intake, but there are no heat risers to keep the carb from icing up. Yeah, like I'm gonna be driving this sled in the snow anytime soon. I cut and pieced it together, and Jason Rock tig welded it all up nice and pretty for me. I just wanted a nice clean look and also a stock engine. It was 66 degrees today when I got home from work, and I hope tomorrow (Friday) will be just as nice so I can soap up the wheels and get them clean. Next up will be getting the body ready for paint. That's where the real fun begins. What have you guys been up to? Get out in the garage and build something! Fritz

The mysteries of lacing and truing a motorcycle wheel. There really is no mystery, it just takes a lot of patience and practice. In this DVD set I do my best to walk you through every step. I start with taking a motorcycle wheel apart and then cleaning and greasing the bearings. Then I show setting new races, lacing up two different style wheel hubs, and truing them up in a truing stand and the rear swing arm of an old Harley Super Glide. This really is a task that anyone can learn and do at home in the garage. Now in stock !!! Arrived ahead of schedule.
