Kooky Times in the Queen City

Eli and Liam know how to party. For realz!!! Had a great time at the first annual Kook-Out in Regina. Thanks boys for the good times!

Great to see the DeathWheelers Crew as well as the usual suspects from down south.






Cypress Run

Road trippin with the family. After a storm warning forced our Flin Flon trip to be reconsidered the night before we left we decided to head for the only patch of sunshine on the radar map. Cypress Hills ended up being the destination and it worked out just fine. Great trip. Super weather, just enough breakdowns to make it interesting, but nothing we couldn't fix on the road. Dad jumped on the White Lightning and joined in this year too, which was awesome. After 45 years of not riding a motorcycle. Great to have him along. The Shovelhead shoveled right along with no issues and completed the 1200 kms without complaining a bit. Had to repair a rear brake line at one point but that's the only issue it gave me. Sweet.

Los Chops c.c. 1951 LEAD SLED





An empty garage = car on the road!
I started this "chop" in 2010, and it feels so good to drive it down the road. All the late night and empty beer cans finally paid off.. this is basicaly a full mock up before paint. I plan to take it all part in the fall to do paint, chrome and interior. Until then I'm going to cruise it as much as I can ………...and try to stay out of jail

Wheelies!


Put some new rubber on the XS400 project yesterday. Ready for the gravel roads now. Had the boys cleaning up the wheel while I prepped the rest. Carole's back wheel had two broken spokes when I took the tire off. Had to salvage two from another old wheel I had. But they were too long so I had to thread them further down the spoke shaft with a die and then trim them shorter once they were mounted on the wheel. Pain In the ass.

CB550F

After a little welding help from my good buddy Suitcase, I got all the electrical crammed in there under the seat. Had a bitch of a time getting her to run properly. Very little power. Turns out if you put the plug wires on the correct plugs...VROOOOOM!!!!!! Who knew?

XS progress


Dumped out the xs400 from the donor bike.
 

Dumped out the lame 360 from Carole's chassis.


Cleaned up the frame and controls.
 

Inserted XS400.  Anyone who tells you an xs400 engine fits in an xs360 frame is a damn liar. Had to redo the rear motor mounts and adapt the top brackets. Got a set of Duro HF-308 dirt track style tires coming for it too which should look great. Lots of electrical work to do before then.

Fuck yes.

This is why I need a jeep and why I love the Canadian Army.
