Been a while...

Finished these up today for a Chop Cult member with a sweet ironhead. Nice matching set, has an internally wired headlight with hi-off-lo and only one wire out. Radiantz high-power LED cluster in the taillight. Bling.

AEE

After a long and tiring weekend, I picked this up a few minutes ago. Best I can tell, it's an old AEE square tube springer, about 10" over. Skinny 3-1/4" in between the uprights. Has a 1" stem, 5/8" axle, the bushings are near perfect, and the chrome still shines like a mirror. The guy who sold it to me also had a 21" spool I might pick-up to go along with this beast. Ordering up some new neck cups and it's ironhead makeover dress-up.

I have to give thanks to the guy I got it from on Chop Cult. I won't mention his name, but he put it on there, as a "pick-up" no-shipping type deal. I was the first to say I would come pick it up, and he held true to his promise to hold it until I could get out there late tonight. He was offered double the price by some of the jackals on there, but his integrity shined through, and for that I salute him. Not many people that stay true to their word anymore, especially when faced with money.


I'm not so much into the name or brand....Bates, AEE, Cheetah, Aris, Wassell, Anderson's, Tampax, Guess Jeans...etc. I just like cool old parts, and a bitchin' springer was part of my vision for this bike.

AMF

Yet another of my AMF flock. Original 79 tank, chips and surprisingly no dents. Clean enough inside. I like how it's kinda beat a little. I'm going to run it on my ironhead for a bit I think. Going to even break my "no-fake-frisco-tank" rule on this one. Just some cheapo homemade brackets and I'm on my way to some instant chopper goodness. I'm such a bad ass "fabricator". Hehe.

A long, long road.....

I got my letter in the mail today. Have the 16-hour training this weekend, and immediately two days following that, an appointment on Valentine's Day for my final issuance. This has taken a LONG time, I made the first appointment with the Sheriff's detectives over a year ago now. Sorry for the CIA-ish omissions and cropping, the rest of the letter was boring/and/or personal info. For those of you who live in California, you know how special this is.
