Yesterday I had to go to work on my day off to catch up on some testing, the wind was blow solid at 25mph and it was about 20 degrees outside without the wind chill, needless to say it sucked. When I got home I was hoping to watch my collage team put a smack down on Nevada and relax. That didn't happen ether and all in all it was a crappy day. So today I went in the garage fired up the wielder and got out the saw and made a bracket to put on the belt guard I got this summer.
It was easy and didn't take to long but was just what I needed. I put it on so I would have a place to rest my foot on long rides, helps allot to be able to move your feet around.
I have spent the last 4 days going through all the electrical, but the pay off was worth it. I'll be the first to say this truck was nor is a cream puff. Its actually been aallllllllllloooooooottttttttt of work. If I didn't have the "parts truck" this truck would not be. I don't have allot of expectations for this truck, but I do want all the mechanical and electrical to work like it did when it rolled off the factory floor, that's part of the allure of these old rides for me, seeing all the dash gauges and lights light up. Next stop is the heater.
Have'nt posted lately because I've been sick and when I'm sick I'm kinda a wuss and don't feel like doing anything. I have been surfing the E-gay and C-list and that drives my wife crazy because I always find stuff I think I have to have. Case in point this bad to the bone coupe.
Rode up to Anderson Dam last weekend with a buddy, its not as far as I thought. I'll definitely be making some more trips up there in the future. Forgot the camera and had to opt for the crappy cell phone pic.
Been logging some miles on the bike to get my faith in it back up. I plan on riding to Boise on Saturday for the game. I took the kids for a ride today and they loved it, good old father son/daughter.
I finally got the bike timed and fired her off today, I think I'll post a "How Too" on static timing your bike. It wasn't hard to do its just one of those things you should see first hand. I called on Crow in C-town to give me the rundown over the phone and it worked out good. I got the bars I ordered in and they looked supper crappy on the bike. Not bad bars just not good with this bike. I went ahead and cut them up and made another ridiculously narrow set of bars. I still need to polish them up and I think I'm going to add another support bar across the bottom. I also need to shorten the forks about 2in, but for now I'm just enjoying riding.
Haven't gotten the bars in yet so I through something together to get it around the garage. Took this pic with my cell phone but it looks so good in the yard I thought I'd share it, I'll have her done by the end of next week and get some good photos then.
