Here's a shot of my Evo XL .Me and Marty and Tommy have been working on her for a while now.Since this photo was taken the tins have been sent off to Bob at French Kiss for some magic.I had Marty tell him I want it blue and sparkly. Can't wait to see what he comes up with! Should get the tins back next month and hope to have her ready for Daytona.
Roadside's Dad. When it comes to motorbikes, this guy's been at it twice as long as most of you have been alive. I've never met anyone with more knowledge of old iron.The first night I hung around the shop(he does his tinkerin' in the evenin's) he learned me so much about WLA's my brain hurt.
The other night my Dad walked up to me at the shop and handed me this beautiful Mother's Performance Prod. intake manifold for Knuckles and Pans to adapt mainly SU carbs but others as well and it even had the original instruction sheet, this manifold has never been used!
Roadside finally decided it was time to get the
job-stopper forearm tattoo he has wanted since he was a kid.
I had some free time at the shop today and told him to come on down.
Here's what he ended up with:
Gonna go in later and do some Bamboo and wind background stuff.
He'd had enough after three hours today.
Couple of found goodies going on Marty's Knuck.
Original Wassel tank with period paint job from
Dad's stash. Bates seat was being used by friend
Capt.Dennis as a seat on his garage creeper stool
for who knows how long.When Marty inquired
about it Dennis said" I don't know why you want that
piece of crap but if you wanna unbolt it from that stool, it's yours."
Hadn't been in years. Brought back a lot of memories.
Mostly of getting scammed out of hard earned lawn
mowing money to win a crappy pakistani pocket knife
in some kind of ring toss game.I do miss the Rock and
Roll cocaine mirrors though.
