You get the idea.

A builder from Switzerland concocted this ride.
I’m not sure what I think about it?



A Good Summer Weekend

Saturday morning Pat & I got a bunch of random bike stuff done around the shop. Saturday afternoon close friends Paul, Dina and Isebella invited us over for a Maryland Blue Crab feast. Paul hails from Baltimore and his Mom is kind enough to over night a shipment every now and again. I’ve had the chance to enjoy a few of these meals of fun now and it always a good time. The girls threw in the paper towel early but Paul and I managed to polish off the bushel & a bunch of Brazilian beers.
Good stuff, & big thanks.


Sunday chop 101 with guest professor, Joel.
Sundays have gotten to be super fun, people come and go, help out, jaw a little, shit gets done and my recycle bin overflows with empties.

Fun house Bob.

Weld table

I’ve been welding on a giant oak desk that I’m pretty sure came from some vacant receptionist position and it was only a matter of time before it bursts into flames. So with a couple of donated legs from my buddy Tim, some leftover square bar and a big piece of free scrap plate that Pat came up with I welded up a somewhat proper welding table.


Sorry for the BS posts but we’re super busy right now, four bikes under construction in my garage & two down at Pat’s shop. This bike thing is snowballing out of control and I’m loving it.

Central Coast Customs

A Scott Long creation from SOW #1.
I wonder if he looks around the shop for that wrench?

A Long Date with the Dremel

I’m finally finishing up these mid controls and after some thought I decided to add a little more support to posts. Since I set precedence with the foot pedals it meant more blending of my crappy welds. Nothing a couple hours with a dremel can’t fix, the neighbors love the dremel too.
I really wish I had kept track of the ridiculous amount of time that has gone into these stupid foot controls. Almost ready for plating though & they’re just what I envisioned.
