    Maritime's new GL - 2UP Distance eater

    I would recommend getting on the list as soon as dealerships announce taking pre orders. If the trend is anything like the T7, they are gonna sell like hot cakes. Yamaha was letting people order with a refundable deposit, and if you can swing it, that will likely be the way to go.

    "A Bird in the Hand" take 2. DR650 Deadtail Bobber

    Thanks Cory! I'm glad you enjoyed it! Also glad you could finally come out for a ride! I've been messing a bit with the leaner sidecar for this thing again lately. I re worked the subframe to gain a bit more gound clearance as well as getting the hardware sorted for the heim joints. All 5/8...

    Swamp Donkey 2.0 Fat Tire Bikes Make the Rockin World Go Round'

    Thanks. If I have one regret about getting rid of the first swamp donkey it's that I did so before ever getting a chance to ride it in the snow

    Swamp Donkey 2.0 Fat Tire Bikes Make the Rockin World Go Round'

    I got a little more piddling done over the weekend. I made up a simple spacer that mates TW forks to BW trees to TW rear axle to BW wheel to TW front drum brake haha Truly this is the only custom piece to make the whole setup work. The rest is bolt together or really simple mods. Kinda funny how...

    Swamp Donkey 2.0 Fat Tire Bikes Make the Rockin World Go Round'

    Hey, why not ONE MORE switch-up on this project. @deviant and I have become some sort of Fat Tire brothers, and another trade up happened. He had the hair-brained idea that he wanted a hard tail tw200 chopper, and we decided that the tweaked-framed red one (that @ridesolo originally brought to...

    1949 Ford F-3 "old red truck"

    I'm in full on Barber mode until I get back on Tuesday. After that, I will likely try to hammer down on a few things on the truck, one of which is a full (yet simple) re- wire. Most of what's on the truck is the O.G. cloth wrapped stuff from 49. It is a bit worse for wear, and right now is the...

    "A Bird in the Hand" take 2. DR650 Deadtail Bobber

    Well, After turning the bars, removing the master, sliding the tubes up in the trees, leaning the bike WAYY over on its side and spitting on the cap, I got the bobber loaded in the short short bed Silverado ready to head to Barber Vintage Festival this weekend. If you are around, stop by and say...

    1949 Ford F-3 "old red truck"

    Lol you will likely get a call before this is all said and done haha I like you too much to have called ya during the cab pull. I was sore, covered in dirt, rust, 70 year old caked on grease/dirt/ pasture mixture, and ended up pulling this gem of rust from my left eye (yes i had safety glasses...

    1949 Ford F-3 "old red truck"

    Man that would be cool. I don't have many wrenching buddies around. Dad helped me out some over the weekend, and we did the bulk of the work in his barn, but alas, he's recovering from knee surgery and didn't want to over do it (very understandably)... My close buddy Nick just got married a few...

    1949 Ford F-3 "old red truck"

    I had a pretty productive weekend of working on the truck. On Saturday I was able to pull the cab off of the OG chassis and get it put on the recently painted "new" chassis with fresh cab mount rubber. It took every bit of a 12 hour stretch to get it done. I ended up having to use an acetylene...
