      ok sooooooooooooo here's the deal I am hoping to have a new hosting site by the end Nov middle of Dec That being said I have had only 2 peeps offering to help support the site So I think those who want to help should hold on to your cash till then. I do not want to take any money and then the site close (cause that would not be right) Many be can find some extra before then so no one has to pitch in. That's it for now Thanks WhiteWolf

  1. Slowly, I'm trying to get some more riding in with all this unusually warm weather VA has been getting this fall. Took a trip with some friends to a place called "the Pines" for some moto camping. Took another screw off day to just ride around all day, came across a friend on the road doing the same thing. Soaking it all in while I still can. Also been busy as hell fixing the wife's 2000 Jeep XJ and our 1968 K10 for the past few weeks. Soon as the weather gets nice and cold we'll pull it in the shop and strip it down for chop chop chop. The fuzzy guy at the picnic table holding the stogie in the pics is me.

  2. Thanks man. I was originally planning on doing apes, but these bars have zero flex and feel perfect. I fell in love with them after the first ride. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. So this is going to be a very slow starting build. Should get fun this coming winter and spring. Wife bought me this 96 Springer for our 10 year anniversary, so I've been putting around on it for about 5 years now. Slowly yanking stuff off. We're going to strip it bare this fall/winter and start over from scratch making a proper chopper out of her. For now I'll walk through the stuff that's been done so far. First thing I did was yank the wide bars in favor of some Biltwell Keystones and Biltwell risers with loonynum tubing spacers. Yanked the Mustang "Fat Elvis" seat in favor of a LePera. Swapped the pipes for a set of two in to 1 that my friend Paul gave me. Off came all the goofy Kuryakn doodads too. Speedo and turn signals stopped working, I put a new speed sensor on, but no worky worky still. Think it's the signal module, but that's $80 that I just haven't pulled the trigger on. So I yanked the speedo and signals and fabbed a sheet metal dash. Didn't like the dash as much as I had hoped, so yanked it back off. By bud Jeremy Cupp at LC Fabrications built a solo seat pan kit for Softails that he now sells online, hooked me up big-time with the prototype. I finally got around to covering that last month. So yep, that's about all so far. Nothing too exciting, but I ride the he'll out of it, and she beats me to death so why not chop it. Here are some pics for now. Oh yeah, the leather work I've decided to make a hobby business out of. Also do some other random art, antique restoration/refurbishing, and woodcraft. Check it out on Facebook and give it a thumbs up if you dig it at Appalachian Handcraft. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks. Yeah, I love the color. Have been out of the leather thing for WAY too long now due to health issues. Hope to get back at it soon and start learning some stich work.
  5. Chicago Screws for mounting the seat brotherman. https://www.google.com/search?q=chicago+screws&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#q=chicago+screws&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=bIb&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&sa=X&ei=tSpkUbrKJq_W0gHr2YDQCw&ved=0CPEBELMY&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.44990110,d.dmQ&fp=59d2eb174ca119c9&biw=1680&bih=959
  6. I'm digging the seat, but won't that body dolly hurt yer ass when you ride?
  7. Thanks for all the compliments guys, I really appreciate it.
  8. This is the brainstorm it began with.
  9. Thanks guys. Few things didn't go the way I planned, but do they ever? Had fun, glad Jeepz likes it. Sent it out to him today.
  10. Welp, got my first paying leather job. Can't wait to see it on the bike.
  11. Thanks again for all the compliments guys. I'll update with more pics as I do more work.
  12. Yeah, they look nice, but until my skill level comes up a few notches, I can't justify spending $50-$75 on a single stamp. Maybe someday I'll be there.
  13. If you saw half the women I've slept with in my youth, you'd change that comment really quickly. Yes, I did some quite ignorant things in my younger days. I just ordered #0 and #2 smooth bevelers from Barry King Tools. Will be ordering more in the somewhat near future as well as one of his medium round mauls. I plan on eventually making my own line of round mauls and possibly some custom machined and ground stainless stamps as well. http://barrykingtools.com/index.htm
  14. I have an old jailhouse gun I made about 15 years ago, and I wasn't very good at it then. I tattooed some dice on my leg and it took four runs to get the ink deep enough to take. Ugh. Then I got sick as hell for 24 hours from a reaction to the Indian ink I used. Ahh yes, ignorant youth. No biggie. I ordered some nicer new beveling stamps today anyway. I'll give it another shot.
  15. Thanks for the compliment. I think this one is going to have to be redone. I put the resolene on before the dye, and it's blocking the dye from being able to soak into the leather fully. So now when I try to wipe resolene on for my antiquing, the resolene is wiping the dye back off. Oh well, part of learning I guess.
