new parts!

so i have been hinting at some new parts that are supposed to come out soon. well the time is now, on Friday i stopped past the foundry and picked up the first run of these new gems


top side of the cable guide. basically what this part does is allows you to ea sly run wires or cables through your frame and get some retro styling ques at the same time. for mounting drill a large hole in your frame slap this on top and either braze or weld it to the frame. now your wires and cables are supported and wont chafe on the frame, and it doesn't look like you just hacked your frame up.


here is the underside, you can see the 1/4in guide hole that runs through the part.


this is a stylized threaded boss. you can use these to mount oil tanks, saddle bags, battery boxes, etc. coped for 1in tube but can easily be ground to fit larger tube diameters. the nice thing about these are you don't have to do any drilling, they are super strong, and they add flair to your frame.
another shot of the 5/16-18 coped boss. as you can see all these parts are cast steel which gives them a natural texture. i really dig the texture since it gives the part a vintage factory look that hints at Harley and triumph frames of the old days. this look will separate you from the "billet" guys out there. if you decide you want a smoother look these parts do file out really nicely with a bit of handy work.

late night two!

here is a set up pipes that i welded up tonight. my buddy jake from bolts action is building this sporty for his friend jordan who lives out in california. he is supposed to ride it out to palmsprings on sunday, with that being said he really needed to get the loose ends tied up so in order to do that we stuck around the shop and made sure everything was all dialed in proprely.



sorry about the crappy video, i thought it would be better than nothing though.

Additionally, Cam is working on the new website that should be debuting within the next week. In the mean time go buy some stuff from the store so I can afford to build rad stuff for you guys.

hat design.

so i have been working on these logos for a trucker hat. i thought i would run them past you guys and see what you think of them. the lathe logo goes on the front of the hat and the tag logo will be printed on the underside of the brim. would you buy one? let me know what you think.



robert evans (one of the faithful p.s. readers) took the liberty of photoshoping the lathe logo on to a couple of hat shots! thanks a bunch robert.

late night.

well i stayed at the shop late tonight and put the finishing touches on brooks sissy bar and fender mounts. i think it turned out rather swell...... now time for the chrome shop and some wild paint.
