I just happen to know these guys and think they are super cool. Super nice people. Can't wait to see them again - I just been so busy, but need to make time. I was surfin' for Brooklyn photos . . and found this.
I love modified "stock" parts.
SOLD OUT - get the product off your blog or website. I've seen like a dozen items I'd like to buy - from shirts, parts . . . etc. Every single item was OUT, TEMPORARILY OUT-OF-STOCK, SOLD OUT . . . Who wants it anyway? How many did they make, 5,6,7 of them and they're gone now? Screw it. If you have a site and sell a product - Manage your site ! If it's out - get it off there. Why show us your stuff when you don't have any anyway? The more I think about it - I don't want to look like everyone else anyway. I'll just keep wearing my same old shirts and keep my money. The hole in my armpit is just added ventilation . . .
During the the AMF years a few disgruntled factory workers possibly left out wrist pin snap rings "purposely" to get back at the factory for layoffs, low wages, etc. The dealers would have a customer come in for warranty work - and no snap ring was ever found in the motor.

Once you have a 45 . . . all you want to do is ride it !
Chad has a restoration business (classic cars, paint, welding and fabrication) on I-35 just north of Clear Lake, Iowa. It's a family business and they do great work.
Motorcycle Cannonball stop by for a break with free food and drinks for everyone - way cool dudes ! I ran over to check it out on my lunch hour. On the freeway I caught up with a few (doin' a solid 57mph) on those pre-1930 bikes . . . really neat to see against the Iowa fields.
A bit of wrenchin' was takin' place as soon as those "sewin' machine sounding motors" came poppin' in from the road. Said "hey" to Jeff Decker and Michael Lichter (Jeff addin' a bit of synthetic lubricants to keep everything . . . well. . . . lubed ) All motorcycles have these map-like deals on the handlebars which outline the route for the day . . . and each participant gets one every morning. Kinda cool. I talked to Matt Olsen and he was doin' great - a few tack welds on the rear fender, and a funky seat - but, he looked good for another 2000 miles. Tonite they stop in Spirit Lake, Iowa and check out the newly, emerging Indian Factory . . . Yes, the marque will be manufactured, brought back to life, in of all places . . . Iowa !
