Exhaust

Made soms new exhausts pfff i hope my welds are okay....?!?!?!

details

This morning I looked at a dutch chopper magazine. some pages reflected a dutch chopper show held this year, the bikes that are build these days...pfff set a side the 'what kind of style' somebody likes, but back in the days craftsmanship, detail, creativity etc. were at a high level. you can see the blood, sweet and tears the builder has put into this 45. amazing, this bike has a soul!!!! I think current bike builds miss this 'soul'.

Too many people use too many expensive parts and not looking at the total design / vibe of the bike.
The cool thing about the old bikes is that i'm learning new stuff each day. from technical to parts stuff. I just received this early edition of the jammer's handbook, the cool factor is HIGH! not only the parts, but also the david mann drawings and technical information. because this information it feels like i'm getting more and more in love with the bikes, parts i have and try to build. also with the people I meet at meetings, swapmeets etc. the atmosphere is always friendly and great fun! these people are greatly involved with the stuff they have and build, I think PASSION is the right word!

street view

magnificent street view! Don't know where if found the pic, SWEEEEET!

Into the wild

last couple of weeks, had some other stuff on my mind than motorcycles. from January 2012 will have a new job, this change will encounter some new challenges not only work related... so different stuff is going through my mind. from the current situation at my job till private stuff. i'm not always sure if I make the right choices, sometimes it is difficult to deal with the uncertainties. On the other hand, it feels good to explore unknown territory. hopefully next year will bring some good stuff!
I will not start about the current society / TV which all revolves around the outside of people / money / things....

'into the wild'

due to this I'm not really progressing with my projects.... (maybe also because of my two left hands...)
