By Rafter

Tony did some rad work on Jimmy’s kit recently. We will see what it will produce this coming weekend in testing. Also got a sweet O Ring head machined and moved the decomp hole to the top. Custom squishband as well. Peep.

Mondays!

By Rafter

I just looked into our web visits and history. All you people look at our blog four times more on Monday than any other day. Nice work ethic folks. I will strive to have better updates on Mondays from now on.

As for today. Stare at this Motobecane.

Normal day at the shop

By Rafter

Today Nate and I worked a trade for a newer computer. It was made in the 2000′s. Our old unit was may from 1995 or some shit. Well we gotta mac now so blogging can go down here at the shop and not have to wait till I get home.

Steve came by the shop today and worked a sweet three shoe for his whip. Nate shopped for all sorts of bearings for up coming projects. Tommy should be back in town today.  Pipes are rolling out really fast right now and the wait list is getting shorter so get your order in.

Gila plus V1 Radness and Failure

By Rafter

1700 miles on this motor with awesome results. Pushed a bit too hard for too many miles straight on the way home from Fort Bragg. The big end crank bearing self destructed and sent needle bearings through the ports to destroy my piston crown and head. Not a scratch on my cylinder walls. Time for a rebuild and new piston. Gotta find a new crank. This was the stroked crank I got from South America. Time to do some searching.
