100 degree’s today but gotta keep going.

Well, I am sure for you too, the weather is a tad hot? My poor old walnuts are struggling in this heat, remember, I am from a cold and wet country and even though I have been here 12 years, the sun still does kick my arse.

Hot enough to melt a Motorcycle I think?

So at the shop I work early in the morning and late into the night at this time of year, to try and beat some of the intense heat that we get here in Southern California.


Anyway, I shall try and add to the blog today what I am up to, this morning I was at cars and coffee in Irvine, plenty of cool rides and now quite a contingent of Motorcycles attending, so a nice break for a Saturday.

Today I have a gas tank to fit on a Cafe Racer I am finishing for a Customer, ground up build and boy is she looking cool now.



I also have started on another Cafe Racer which is another frame up build, this time for a guy over in Korea, this is a Black stealthy machine and will be adding photo’s a little later on.

I have some buddies that left the shop yesterday morning and drove to Bonneville, so hope they are having fun ?


Still have customers orders to pack and will be doing that shortly as I like to pack the orders as fast as possible.


I have a Serviceman coming from base camp to bring me his newly acquired CB750 that doesn’t run and have a job there to try and get the old girl to fire back into life.

Got to keep our military happy.

On other news:

I have new Employee starting on Monday, young lad, into bikes and cars and will be cool to have another team member to the crew.


Look out for more parts too, as I am gearing up for more exhausts, this time for the 500/550 and of course my 750 Honda’s, although- I shall have NEW 4 into 1 systems for the 1979-1983 DOHC and will advertise them on the website as many people have emailed me about making these available and I listen to my Customers.


Eventually I shall start a cafe Racer evening, where people can turn up and hang out, grab a free coffee or soda and shoot the breeze with other like minded people, so keep watching the blogs and of course my face book too for more information about all that will be going on.
