Better than internet

Wanted to learn more about the differences between 45 gas tanks and other tanks. So instead of the net I went to Jason’s. Always better to see and handle stuff in person. I understand now. Thanks Jason!

JPRC Shop bike

Managed to drop by to hangout with Jason this afternoon. Checked out the progress on the shop bike. Lots done in a short period of time but still more to do. At first I wasn’t sure when Jason told me him was going to put on an Alien tank, but it looks good. Once he removes a few more things, gets the Pan heads on, this thing will be awesome. Jason tossed it together with what he calls junk around the shop!

Here’s a few photos of where it stands now, can’t wait until this one gets done. Got more pics and will post them over the next few days.

WL Quality time

Soon to be swap meet season in our neck of the woods. Not in a big rush but hope to score some parts for this guy here. Have a vision in my head and don’t want to accumulate and pile of parts I’ll end up not using. Let me know if you have anything you think I may need.

New seat springs and hinge

Have to take advantage of the warm weather, changed my seat hinge and tried some new torsion type springs I had around. I like the regular ones better, there is no give on these at all.

Bike took a beating

All part of the fun, weather was nice today, riding a little harder on the bike. Looks like too much stress in a few points. Tank tabs are taking it, paint is cracking and seat hinge broke when I was doing about 60 miles, seat did a nice “wheelie”!
