Eventful weekend

Took the motor-bike to the show this weekend. Lots of looks and even some offers, so thats cool. Had it at 42 mph and it was still 4 stroking. Need to find a better carb that I can actually get jets for. Its gettin there.
 Took the Klunker to sycamore today to get in some snowy single track miles. Rode close to ten miles im guessing. Got tired of waiting around on a custom seat post, so I took some 1/2" black pipe and filed the O.D. down until it fit. Only needed to remove about 1.5mm so it worked out pretty well. Yay for long as hell seat posts that wont bend! The new suspension fork is working out pretty well. Looks rad on there, and its completely seized so I dont have to worry about the awful performance for a ~20 year old Rock Shox Quadra fork.

More progress on the moto-bike

Finally finished the gas tank... sort of. I still need to seal it because of a couple pinholes.

I wish I would have prepped the used steel better. All the contamination made it a real b*tch. Good news is all the pretty welds are on the bottom where nobody will ever see them. :)

 The tunnel was a fun task. Challenging, but not as hard as I thought it would be.

 Also welded on the chain tensioner to the chain stay to eliminate the clamped on POS it came with.

 Tune-up at the bike shop. Guy came in saying his rear shock wasnt holding air, and he needed it the next day. He only rides the bike once a year so he doesnt care how we fix it. I made it rigid for him :)
