The original china girl has to get the nod for the second bike time installment. Its funny how a project can be the object of intense focus for a week or so, than get relegated to the backyard, acquiring a patina only the elements can give. This thing started out as a bastard 1936ish shelby frame that I had failed to fix correctly. Its hard to see but the whole bottom bracket/rear dropout is from a girls bike,
which had different tube angles. Fortunately a friend - sophorn "sloppy" sin turned me on to those china girl bike engines, and a perfect match was made, as the diagonal tube would need to be replaced anyway. The time sucker was that dang tank. It was one of those great ideas that had no end.
I'll know what to expect next time.

You know when you work til 3 in the morning, and you wake up feeling like you're sludging through quicksand, your head and hands are like mush. Well that happens a couple times a week, its how I get things done.
So fortunately last week was out at fry's, and found the perfect bargain bin movie for $5 -The Game. Perfect for a slow morning like this.
(Stupid trailer but all I could find.)
I like long movies if the rides good,
and this one is entertaining enough.
The reason why I'm posting this though is there was a trippy coincidence,
the dudes birthday happens to be October 12th,
so the movie takes place right about this time of year.
Hey, this is what happens to me when my brains on standby!
Anyway if you have 2 hours to kill its worth a rental.
At least now Chief's tank has baffles... and a trick non-clogging fuel outlet...
Bummer to lose the old stickers though,
but Luke aka pigpen aka watertower wizard said he has some teak,
which is code for something good, I think.
This is what baffles and fuel funnels are for.

If you ever want to see a grown man cry,
or at least get a little sad,
than buy me a beer, actually a couple beers and a bottle of good tequila,
and bring up good old "red dot II"
1928 roadster with custom hallock windshield
a 6 year collection, a 5 month build, 4 months of fun, 3 years of wtf was i thinking!
this video was from the last real paso show.
We - cough cough...towed...cough cough - the thing up there,
(hey it was a thrash to get it that far!)
and on the last night of the last day actually got it running, right before putting it on the trailer!
It was a fun weekend.
My brother Trevor hogged Chief (the RPU) the whole way up and back...
Luke lobbed a strangers human poo onto his than girlfriend, Holly...
We actually had a room at the posh hotel across the street with a pool...
