    would it be to much to ask, if you made a list of bike's you are
    1-building
    2-going to build
    3-on the drawing board
    I know this is a part time gig that you can do when the wife lets you out :D but your stuff is cool.... still like to see the 1200 GS-ADV

    I haven't built a sport bike yet (I want too, just still learning how to manipulate the metal to get the bends I'd need) and I have pictures of a cafe bike that I'm dying to build. :freaky I've got a few builds going on right now, but look for them soon!

    Amazing work! I've built several heavy gauge steel projects, but I typically burn through the light stuff like that. I see you even have a spring in there - does the swing arm actually move, and is the spring functional? That would be truly awesome work!

    Thank you! The small gauge is tricky to work with, especially since I'm mig welding it. I've certainly had to experiment and burnt through my fair share of metal. :D The "spring" is a screw I had in my bucket of parts, it looks great in there. I've thought of making them functional, but for what they are, I'm happy with just the "look". :norton

    I wanted to share a special build with you guys, here's a little back story...

    My mom and I were talking about my metal builds and how she thought I should take some of them to show my Grandfather (he was a welder). During this conversation I told my mom I'd like to build him a Wheel Horse lawn tractor. He always had a Wheel Horse....or 3, normally broken down on the farm. I remember him tinkering with them all the time when I was younger. He absolutely loved them. He passed away on Saturday. I was able to show him a couple of my bikes I had built the weekend before. This build is for him. He would have loved it. It will be on display at his showing, then given to my mom.

    You've got talent, and Grandpa is proud of you. Remembering him as you do, he will never be forgotten.

    These are what I call "Boogies". The one standing over the bike has been sold already. I have found that kids get a kick out of these (my 3 yr old judges all my work). :lol3

    These are what I call "Hoots". Perfect for that kids room all done up in owls (or am I the only one?). Notice their heart shaped feet? :deal

    Both of the "Boogies" have sold.

    However, I do happen to have a new Boogie giving a piggyback ride to a baby Boogie. These are what I work on when I'm stuck figuring out how to do something on a bike build.

    Speaking of bike builds, I have a Triumph Tiger 800xc that I'm building for an inmate that is almost complete. Can't wait to show you guys...it's pretty cool. Definitely the most challenging build I've had so far. :D
