Scott hard tails the ironhead

I met my neighbor Scott a few months back. Turns out he has an old ironhead project laid up in his garage for year. After a night of two of introductions and beer drinking the decision was made to chop it. Scott went ahead and picked up a weld in hard tail from Led Sled. It took a month plus to arrive and it was a bit pricey but the qulity looks good and will cut down on hours of bending grinding and missed measurements.
Unfortuatly we junped right in and started cutting. This is moments before I cut the bottom tubes about 3/4" too short.
Scott mocking in the motor to install the tail.

Jens stopped in on chop nasty. Check out that ugly red wire loom. We gave him a a hard time until he fianlly removed it. Unfortuanalty this was a fatal step which later that night when he went to leave resulted in the wireing harness completely melting down.

The top tub on the iron head had been recessed above the motor mount, possibly for wiring. This bump in the frame made it impossible to install the plug so an attempt was made to head and straighten the tube from the inside. It was not a complete sucess but did close out the night.

Monkeying around in the snow

After watching Flat Out Friday live streaming last night, I think I was inspired to get outside and ride.  I carved a track in the backyard with my snowthrower, put my studded tire on the Evil Monkey, and had a blast.  My daughter took the riding photos.

Mama Tried 2018 - Part 8

The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show isn't just a bike show, it's a full weekend experience.  When you consider the show itself, Flat Out Friday, a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum, multiple concerts, and ice riding on Slippery Sunday (weather permitting... and it did not cooperate last year), you really can't ask for more.  I'm bummed I'm missing it this year but I hope everyone that attends has a blast.  The last few years will be hard to beat, but the show seems to get better every year.  Have fun everyone!  I'll leave you with some photos of One (Metallica tribute) and Weedeater at last year's show.

These guys were so good.

Pushin' and shovin' in the pit (Rave security was not amused):

Weedeater was fun to photograph.  The facial expressions are fantastic.

Bottle's empty?  Show's over.

Have fun at Mama Tried this weekend!!!
