Default how did YOU spend your friday night???

Me? I spent the better part of the evening with El Shawn digging around this guy's garage who's got a kick ass '68 Shovel who's always got a booth at the swapmeets...


in his garage were 7 or 8 milk crates full of stuff...


this guy...keeps everything...and I'm sure glad he does!


this isn't a lot of stuff to some I'm sure, but this was stuff I've been looking for and found it without waiting for customs clearance.

this was about $35





and I got this for $25





I was actually looking for some forward controls for Dragon as well...and I think I might have found some bits and pieces, but I'll have to go back and look again...

Red Stripe, date with the better half, movies, Coffee, drawing, and polished it all off with doing some e-learning so I don't have to ask all my stupid n00b questions here.

blackcrown in da house:
how did YOU spend your friday night???

On the couch with Enzo Ferrari (the house cat) in front of my new 42" watching Transformers (two times!!! Awesome movie with cool cars and an Aprilia RSV Factory) downing a bunch of Heineken. After that I fitted a new set of bars to The LTO Project, did it go on upsidedown or, don't remeber....

DP says: Just an ordinary friday at Mosta Hill....

Damn, I suck. I did work-type work (the kind they pay you for) on this very same computer while the TV blared some background noise behind me.

You guys - the guys that do actual stuff - rock!

P.S. - Doc, the wheel looks great. Glad you got over your love for the 16". That wheel looks fast standing alone.

I worked on repairing Backhoe controls instead of putting my new (used) front end on my Tr6c. I asked for any Triumph parts the guy could find for payment. We will see how that works out....

Started pimping up my new POS cheap bicycle





Worked on my Gonzo T-Bird Thunderspeed
(how's that for a name..ha ha)project:
After previously having made a mock-up i cardboard
I cut a new mock-up tail-section on 0.5mm aluminum
(real nice for doing mock-ups; you can cut
it with an ordinary pair of scissors and
real easy to shape. Later a friend will do it
for real. My welding skills are like those of a drunk child)




...and gave it a bit of color






..no, I don't have a life.



















HEEEY wait a minute: yes I do. THAT's life.
