The gear and gun section.


The bar


The tools


The workbench


The mill


The lathe


The B-24 model collection


The bone pile


The beemers


More cycles


The boring bar and bead blast cabinet


The brake, press, band saw


The welders TIG and wire and stick


The belt sander, torch set


The parts dept.


The air compressor


The lift



The place is always a mess. Right now I'm getting my Triumph flat tracker ready for the Legend of the Motorcycle show in Half Moon Bay. This shop is a lifetime of collecting and messing around with motorcycles.



OK, you win!

I can only wish I had some of the work areas posted above, maybe some day. This is what I'm working with now, a pretty small shed.

The door off to the left is the "Cold Storage" shed, housing a SV650 that is waiting to be made into a track bike, and my buddy's 1972 CL175 that we have done a pretty extreme Cafe Racer make over to, but its waiting for a head gasket right now.

The main workshop area...

Lots of old and sometimes broken parts stored on the shelves and in the eves...

The workbench.

This would have been a pretty cool workshop in 1975, from left to right, 1974 CB360 Cafe project, 1975 KZ400S semi cafe project, and a 1973 Beta 125.

Ahh PBR, the beverage that powers me through alot of repairs and mods...

Super cold storage in the cellar of the house, my CT70 and a 1979 XR250 frame that someone had modified for a CB360 motor, no idea why they did it, but one of these days I'll get it back togeather for use as the winter beater, no sense in having a nice new bike get covered with road salt.

Nice hardware.

Where is the beer fridge? And how did the Triumph move between pictures?

What most non-Americans don't realize; these properties are owned by guys that don't make $100k+ a year. Most are probably working in skilled trades and not the CEO of the company.

EXCEPT for the guy in San Francisco.The guy with the BMW and the toolbox on the sidewalk.

He's got to be loaded to live there.
