Hopefully the Ironhead will be ready for the summer, at least at the moment I'm trying to make as much as possible in the weekends.

A few pictures from the weekend in the workshop;

Tail light and numberplade bracket

Lubrication, lubrication, lubrication - if it's not enought, use more lubrication

Rear brake, pull rods fabrication

My father found this old brake rod from the early 30's with spring and brass nut included !
nice old detail

Sportster updates

This is the newest pictures from my fathers Sportster project.

The engine has been disasseblyed for blasting of the crank case, now the aluminum is nice and grey, and it's time for assembly

The cyllinders got a fresh new layer of paint.

New gear wheels in the oil pump

Demo installation of the front fender and gas tank before the paint job

New old style damper top covers

Fresh painted casted handlebare bracket

After installing the new handlebar at my Ironhead Pocket Rocket, I gave the old handlebar grips to my father. They fits his project very well.

This is not exactly a commercial for, actually I have never been visiting their homepage, and in fact I'm not a big gambler : )

BUT a few days ago I saw their new commercial "The two man duel", and I found it very catchy ! I really like the setup with these guys challenging each other, especially the peak when the older guy pulls up a big crap from his pants, with blood on his knuckles, steady eyes and a victorious smile !

And even better than the setup is the choice of music, in these 50seconds the commercial last I became a fan of Alan Mills. The track is called "Clear the track, let the bullgine run"

This recording is from 1957, same year as the Ironhead was made, Elvis bought Graceland and the Soviet Union launches Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the earth.

Along the road

At the moment I'm working in Sweeden. A couple of days ago I was driving to the airport, when I suddently along the road saw a nice old Caltex gas station !

It's dangerous sitting all day looking at eBay, you always find something that you need. "Luckily" I can't afford most of the things, but it's always good with some appetizers : )
