Dick worked up a plan along along with Mike from JDS cycle.
This is the plate Mike machined up to hold the head square.
Glad to see my pictures make it up on here Dolce. Lots of hard work to get that head jigged up properly, very happy with how the rocker shaft reaming came out.

Some guys don't have ideas, and have to copy. Other guys will wait until they have an idea, and then get implement it. Then there's the few who work through a bunch of ideas, until they've solved the problem multiple ways, and then pick the very best path.

I don't know how, but this pic just tells me which guy I'm looking at here.

^ I can't begin to tell you how correct you are. I have seen him sit with things for 3 days and then solve unsolvable problems while he slept.

^ He woke up at 4am that day. Looking at the clock it's 10:25pm and he is still thinking about that part and three other risky projects.

One size fits all seat pans? Not in Dicks world. He whipped up these tools to ensure his seats are custom fit.









^ Support ridge. A must have in a Gambino seat pan.



Almost done.

That fucking Gambino had me scrubbing this bike for 6 hours...!




Closer.



It's getting close.



Checking out his hand hammered aluminum race seat.



Not too shabby. Total weight of the seat = to a cell phone battery.

Wax on wax off Grasshopper. The bike looks great and the seat makes it better.

Turns out I am working on a book. Not about Gambino tho. I might be nearing the halfway point of it.

Cool. I'm working on a bit of a novel myself. As if I didn't have better things to do with my time. Anyway, enough hijacking the thread. Hope your writing goes well.
