Watching it Rain

Posted 10-19-2011 at 04:27 PM by Gamuru (The Path Less Traveled)

Wow! I last posted here in March. Pardon the dust.

Since then a whole riding season has came and went. I got a little riding in, but not as much as I thought I would back in March. I wanted to do a portion of the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route. That never happened. I wanted to do some riding up around Twin Lakes and Mount Baker. Don't think I made it north of Sedro on two wheels.

Why? Hiking, or, more accurately, mine exploration. It's been my new passion. I've...

87 Mustang V8 conversion project

Posted 10-18-2011 at 09:04 AM by sschering

After 2 years of just plain ignoring it (and my wife complaining about the ugly dead thing in the driveway) I finally found some time to get my Mustang running..



I started this little project more than 2 years ago at my old house where I had loads of shop space.. We knew we had only 2 months to get it together before I moved. It arrived at my house...

Saved up for New items

Posted 10-10-2011 at 05:19 PM by MikeyShawn (Project 75 CB500T)

bought online from Motorcycle Superstore a new key/ Ignition (to replace the old one which had no key)., and at a local Kenects Auto Parts 18" pipes to connect to the header pipes.
The Ignition arrived a couple days early and came with 2 keys, great having a spare.

My First Restoration Project - 1961 BSA C15 250cc

Posted 09-29-2011 at 03:31 AM by Curley (My Restorations)

When i was a kid, my neighbor used to ride around the estate in his Norton. It made some noise but it just looked beautiful! He had a routine for riding the bike on Saturdays at 5pm every week.

I always looked forward to seeing the bike motor along the estate and the sound gave me goose bumps!

That was when i said to myself that someday i want to own something like that! I was 10!

From the dream of owning, it grew to restoring a classic and riding her...

Un-trimmed out of the mold..
