Triple Clamps or Trees? Seriously trees?

I was supposed to have some bits back from chrome today, that didn’t happen.
SO now what?
I did find a new front end laying next to my bench & it looked like it belonged to the neglected cone shovel in the corner.
I figured I’d completely shaved the lower and some of the upper, polished it all, stuck some 2 piece aces bars and on old spring clamp on them just to see if I could start something.
If chrome lags again tomorrow maybe I’ll shave the legs and see where we are with the stance?

Broc Glovers OW125 & A Badass Track Suit

I’m sorry I’ve forgotten where these images came from so if they’re yours please let me know.
However I do recall the story.
This was the top secret works bike era & unlike todays carnival – dance club atmosphere the pits were off limits to anyone not part of the serious race effort.
On this day the photographer managed to sneak in and get off a few shots of Broc Glovers race bike being prepped by then Yamaha wrench, Jim Felt.
10 years or so later Jim Felt went on to put together a stellar bicycle industry team and launched the popular brand that is Felt Bicycles.

Crap Birthday Weather

I had big plans to go out to the dirt moto track & jump 45 feet, 45 times but the weather crapped out on us.
So I got out the 45 & gave her good cleaning.
Now that I have guns out maybe I’ll give 45 beers a go?

45 Today

I figure I’m at least half way there.
