Puzzle Box


Po Man's Paint Booth

After my fisheye disaster the first
go around, I think I have everything under control
Got the frame and swingarm painted
along with a dozen other pieces.
The tank and fender have all the body work
done and are sitting in self etch primer
waiting for my attention.
Stay tuned!

Shovel Project

Before and after I tore it down.

Shovel Project

I made this bracket to hold the Capacitor up under the
tank. I wrapped it in a piece of rubber and it is held in 
with a zip tie. I plan to ground it on one of the mounting
bolts. I also drilled several holes in the bottom
so any moisture would drain.

I think this is a 1969, either way its
incredible! I'm back on the van hunt,
maybe trade the dodge.

Custom BMX seat!

Johnny and I put together this seat
from some tuck and roll I sewed up for his Bmx.
Now all the hipsters are going to have to get
vintage Bates seats for their fixed gear bikes.

Clock I made awhile back

I made this for a design contest that was
They make some really cool stuff,
most of the stuff they make is named
after old skaters. I thought I should of
won but I got beat by a total ringer 
with a wall mount clock that was
done well and similar in design to mine.

Nice paint

I'm really liking the paint scheme on these two 
bikes the top one is from Love Cycles I believe 
and the bottom might be Max Schaaf but I'm not sure.

Split tank

I really like the GMA tank thats on my bike now but,
I started making this split sporty tank and its coming out so well
that I may have to use it!

Shovelhead build coming along!

Ive mostly been getting little things done on the
Shovel like lowering the forks, finding cables,
spacing the front wheel, making a kickstand stop and
exhaust mounts. 
A tail light I made from an old oil gauge.

I decide the pipes were too boring so,
I decided to kick them up on the ends
and add some evo flanges as tips.

A little progress on the rotocaster

Fender Struts

I thought to long about this and then
just kept it simple.
New seat with a Biltwell hinge and the 
fender supports sticking out the side.

Seat progress?

Pulled some foam out of an old seat
and salvaged enough for the seat.
I even sewed up some tuck and roll for it.
Then I decided to use a seat I already had,
I'm gonna finish it but the other seat
has a simpler look.
