Well it FINALLY happened..all those years that my ex inlaws and my ex wife for that matter had said would happen did..my son Dylan turned 18! and got his first but certainly not last tattoo and I was able to do most of both of them, words can't really describe how cool that experience was..a close friend of many years, Randy Gillies, who has known my son since he was 5 was the only person Dylan wanted to tattoo him so while Randy was doing the first star ( he got 2 nautical stars on his shoulders) he calmly told me to put on a pair of gloves so that I could finish the first one and finish the second as well, he didn't have to tell me twice and judging by Dylan's reaction he was blown away that dear old Dad was actually gonna do some work on him,Randy apprenticed me for awhile about 12 years ago and dumbass me didn't stick with it (tattooing)..anyway this was one of the best nights of my life because I shared something with my son that only a few fathers can understand, I'm so proud to see him turn into the fine young man that he's become..Happy Birthday son..I LOVE YOU BIG GUY!!!!!

Well the first set of narrowed H-D triple trees that my Dad had given me were bent way out of shape for what I felt was a safe item to run so I was a little disapointed that I wasn't going to be able to run this set of trees on my Knuckle because and you will see why once the bike is done, I want to run a set of cowbells on the front end SOOOO I just turned to just the right man for this kind of job...Lil Chopper!!!!!! Not to bore you with the details I will just let the pic say it all..once again Lil Chopper you kicked fuckin ass!!!

I'm in desperate need of an early genuine H-D 4 speed transmission case that hasn't been goatfucked by hardcore chopper riders like myself..no weld repairs, no oversized studs in the bottom,case breather..you get the idea, I DO NOT need the lid or the gearset but if you don't want to separate those pieces then that's cool as well, this trans is for my 46 Knuckle and it won't be sold or traded off for other shit..hit me back with pics and a price or possible trades if your looking for something..Roadside Marty

While I was hanging out at Jeff Cochrans place in Cinncinatti last weekend I just had to take a pic of his wall clock and ask myself why didn't I think of that?? I don't think I've ever seen a better use of Tropical Tattoo stickers other than on a set of tits (Colleen) or a nice set of ass cheeks (can't remeber her name)..hope to see the ones who matter the most in Daytona in a few weeks..Roadside

Details are what really catch my eye when I look at bikes so when I see something that makes sense or just plain kicks ass I try to remember it, well in this case I was really scopin out the Deadliner Pan from my brothers at Papa Clutch when I noticed that on the rear Wagner master cylinder they were using they had used a banjo bolt and fitting for a really clean look so I called up Papa Tim himself and got the lowdown, any 10 mm banjo bolt and fitting will work BUT the bolt must be shortened a small amount because the threads don't go very far in the Wagner unit so with my trusty hacksaw in hand I "whacked" off a few threads and filed down the burrs and PRESTO it worked!!! Thank God because that's the only brake I have..any questions,comments or insults can always be directed at me at anytime regarding any modifications that I attempt to perform..Roadside
Please excuse my shitty photography..this shot shows you how the line was routed closer to the frame rails and the brake pedal plate, the washers look a little big but I had to use the ones with the rubber inside of them because the regular metal ones just would not seal but the difference is not very noticeable..

Well I made it back to Cincinatti again this year and am I glad I did..I did and saw so much shit in a two day period that it's just a blur! In the freeze frame of my mind I remember faces,parties, laughter, stupid people stepping on my fuckin foot,multiple Irish car bomb shots, the Brodown Bash with Biltwell and Lowbrow, Nick from the Haints telling me I've got alot of cool chopper shit in FL,Shadetree Amanda shaking her ass, Kathy from N.C. telling me how much she LOVED my cologne,doing an interview for a Led Sled documentary, Sara Liberte and me asking random people silly questions on camera, multiple sightings of Paul Jr.,Nicky Bootz,Dandelion Death repeatedly singing or talking about ass fucking,killer parts for my Knucklehead from Warren Jr. delivered by Milwaukee Mike,Fab Kevin and Ms. Carla making me laugh and smile,more dresser parts than the law should allow, a trike version of Captain America, the Limpnickie booth being jam packed, Athena being beautiful as always, Rich Fulk keeping it real..CCI has no idea how lucky they are to have that brother working for them,Kari and Wendy for Detroit Rock City almost giving me pneumonia form standing outside with them during their smoke breaks, Chris Callen for just being himself, Brew Dude for trying to start a bar brawl, Guzzi Doug Wothke and Polly for just being good people in general,Maddog,Kelly, Dozer, Brandy,Pete, Flynch and the rest of the Shadetree crew for busting my balls about my attire in the new issue of CS and if I left anybody else out it's because I'm tired of fucking typing so just enjoy these pictures and cut me some fucking slack..see ya next year muthafuckas!!!!! The only pic worth taking in the whole damn Expo was this beautiful 39 Knuckle..words can't describe it's magic so just try to take it in from this photo..
