  • Just stopping by to say "Hello".

    Been a busy year and this winter hasn't slowed down much either. I have 26 winter bike projects going on (from simple stuff to complete builds). Pretty much a one-man shop during the winter, but do have my brother-in-law who has moved here to help out.

    I miss all the good times with the group of people I've met on this site. I'm glad to see that it's still pretty active and the usual cast of characters are still around making this a uniquely great place to participate.

    I will try to check-in more often, but (as my son reminds me) owning your own business gives one the freedom to pick and choose the 80 hours a week I work. (grin).

    Take care you all... and happy new year!

    Warden (aka - Jim)

                        Stick around for a while and show off some of those beautiful bikes from Milwaukee. Have you done a custom Roadstar yet?

                          Hey Jim, good to hear you are hanging in there! Be sure to get hold of me the next time you do a ride-about and wander through Kansas again. It is time for us to meet up have another lunch together! mike

                                    Well, as some folks already know from my Facebook posts I was involved in a fire at the shop on August 28. Received some nasty burns up my arms and was unable to work at full capacity. My brother-in-law drove from Pennsylvania and spent the next 3 weeks helping out. He has been back and forth for the last 4 months helping. So much, that he just bought a house here and is moving to help permanently.

                                    As for my injuries... 3rd degree mostly on my right arm. Nearly 5 months later I am pretty much back to normal, but do have a bit of pain and nasty scaring (so I don't need a tattoo). Otherwise, all is fine!

                                    Miss you all. Thank you for the kind welcome and notes.

                                    Jim

                                        I had just finished a top end rebuild when a friend showed up at the shop. 11:30pm and we were having a beer. Decided to fire up the bike to see how the build went... small leak from the gastank and fuel line... no big deal (I thought).

                                        The fuel pump is inside the gastank. As soon as I hit the ignition it pressurized the line with 65psi.... I was doused in gas as if it was a sprinkler. No exhaust pipes were on the engine and as the bike roared to life I was lit up. Honestly, it was scary.

                                        Just so happened that my garage door was open and two other riders came by to say "Hi" about a minute before the event. I was lucky to have a full house of good people to help me out when it went bad. 2 fire extinguishers were used and no damage to the bike or other contents.

                                        In the end, I am fine. Trust me, won't happen again!
