metal rack!

to de-clutter the shop, i built a tall metal rack, so i can leave the 10 footers and the longer scraps up there and have it out of the way. sorry for all the crappy pics lately... time for a new camera?

picked up a new sportster!

well, new to me at least...
i already took off a couple little bits that i wasnt too into. and took it to Rick at Dirty Rat Moto this morning to get a little air leak figured out. this thing is pretty solid. i got a decent deal!

i already my a quick sissy bar to kinda make it my own until i chop it up in the winter

fixed ady's flat on her little honda right outside our apartment, luckily the weather was nice. and took a trip to bill's boneyard. i had to take a photo there after having seen Edward Burtynsky's exhibit at Weber State.
