Mario cutting up the /7 frame for his scrambler project.



Putting a post 81 transmission, clutch and flywheel in the R90S sidecar project and cleaning up the frame where the master cylinder leaked years ago.

.....Finally got my own bike on the lift tonight. Replace the driveshaft boot, checked the oil, installed a Motoren Isreal transmission filler site glass, installed crash bars, got the rear wheel off and ready for a tire tomorrow. Getting ready for 5 days of camping and touring the Sierra's this weekend.

Be careful and have a good time my brother. Get some for me. I love the Sierras. Best place there is. Wish I was going along.

Keep the shop photos coming. All looks good.

Popped my Cherry

KhaoSanMan’s big brother checking in…
A little back-story: Immediately after selling my R1100S a month ago, I became seriously ill and began projectile vomiting . I knew that I had to replace that bike with something capable of two-up touring and a little off-road shenanigans. After test-riding an 1150GS ADV with a tank full of gas and almost dropping it, I decided to forget it and popped my Airhead cherry, even if it meant “copying” Little Brother. I found Don Weber’s fully farkled R100GS in the Flea Market and after hearing nothing but good things about the man, I knew that was the bike for me. I rode the bus from Chico, CA to Eugene, OR, where Don picked me up at 6 AM and gave me a ride to his shop. He was a man of his word; the bike was everything he described and more. After giving me a quick demo, some coffee and tour of his shop, I was off on my new ride I dubbed, “Gypsy Rose” (not “Lady Bug” Damnit). I have never ridden such a comfortable bike with so much character. I love it and the vomiting has ceased.

Hanging out at Chris’ shop is just as fun as it looks. There are interesting parts and projects going on everywhere. He knows his stuff and is very welcoming. I look forward to learning all I can from him and the other characters that pass through. I am proud of Mario and his scrambler project. At first I thought it was a money pit that he would never finish, but after helping him set up the “rolling chassis” last night, I can see his dream becoming a reality. It’s going to be bitchin’

What's a shop without a faithful shop dog?



My new dog Bullet, fresh from the pound and happy to hang at Chris' shop.
