New guy here who has been using the HAMB for the past year to keep my ride on the road. My wife and I have always been into hot rod bobber motorcycles and then two years ago we managed to have a daughter who has made it tought to get much riding time in together. We began to miss hot rodding around on the bike together and wanted to include our new kid in the Kulture so the '54 chevy we had been talking about for years seemed like a good way to do it. We bought a two door 150 one year ago and trailered it home about 800+ miles. Quickly went through the motor, drum brakes, and three speed to get her rolling. spent about eight months driving on days when we knew we had time to break down and finally got her dependable enough to drive about four days out of every week. We live at least 20 miles from anywhere and our car is giving us some great cruising time but of course we are learning (mostly through the hamb) about modifications that will hopefully make it dependable enough to be a near daily driver. We plan to keep the stovebolt and modify it for performance.. Lower all the way around using the original (soon to be modified) front suspention. Disks up front... T-5 trans to an s-10 4x4 rear. It may be a few years in the making, but so far we have been at it while keeping it on the road as often as possible. It's been a great experience so far greatly due to the wealth of knowledge that you folks share. We both want to thak you all for the help that you don't even know you've given us so far with our ride and we look forward to meeting you on the road.
