"Motor madness"

Gave the cases a little bath today. Followed up with a good angle grinding. I used scotch brit pads that are like a 4.5" grinding disc and clean up the casting on the cases. Looking good. Next step will be wet sanding then polishing. Can you say labor intensive. One of the cylinders had a little bit of the piston in it so i used acid to eat up the aluminum. I then took the old stone hone to them and they cleaned up good. I'll throw a mike on them monday to see what the bore is. Now all i need for the bike is a tranny and the insides of a shovelhead motor.

Update on shop!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to my moms for a visit yesterday and got a huge surprise. My step dad also has a fabrication shop. He laid everybody off and was going to sell off his equipment and close the doors. He has many irons in the fire so its not a big deal too him. He freaking told me that i can have the key and take it over! MIG TIG FIG welders Mills lathes press brake shear heated paint booth, even has a industrial sewing machine their. Huge paved lot with locked gate parking. Needs some tlc the guys that worked their were not very clean. Have sealed the deal yet but this week it should be done. The place even comes with a steady flow of work. Won't be running like a 9-5 just keep it easy going. He just wants somebody on call so to say to build replacement parts for the machinery that he has built for people in the past. Time to be loud and not worry about the neighbors

Bad news City

Well i got bad news from the city today. I have to stop all work at my shop until they can come up with a reason to make me stop. Nothing written up yet, but they will find something. Have a back up plan, a place across the street form my dads shop will be available next month. Wait and see. The reason this is all happening is my up stairs neighbor called and turned me into the city. She doesn't want me their and lied to them about what i was doing. The guy came in and told me that i can't paint cars in my shop. OK i won't. I haven't painted anything. Where did that come from. He said someone up stairs called the city about it. When he couldn't find anything wrong he said they had to look till they find something.

A little randomnus

Heres some randomness. Dogs being silly. Beagle Ducati acting like a lion. Izzy the chihuahua wrapped up in a blanket. I wrapped her up and she stayed in it for 4 hrs. I played Photo russian roulette and got a shoot that i slayed first tracks down the day before. Completed tail light

Arts and crafts

OK don't freak out. Just thought i'd try my hand at resin molding. A tai light sounded good. So Period correct biker stuff influenced the tail light. Zeke hiel
