    Bikes, I'm up to 6 now.I just got a motorized one last week but it's best and hardly stays running..
    All of them are garage sale finds I strip down, sandblast and do body work on the frames and rebuild.

    I'm more interested in this '66 Bug right now, than my main project. I need to sell it so I can invest that cash into the main one.

    Building this for my son: [​IMG]

    Have to thank the HAMB for the inspiration. I can't weld, but I read every thread on here about custom wagons and made it work. My 2-year old son saw it for the first time and shouted "race car daddy! race car!" He loves it. Now to paint it.

    I tinker with my 67 Mustang a lot. My mom and dad bought it for me when I turned 16 and It was supposed to be a father son project. Dad passed away my junior year of high school. So as much as I love traditional rods, that car means more to me than any of my others.

    I also have a 9 point whitetail rack and cape that I am getting ready to shoulder mount and a 6 pt whitetail I am working on a European mount.

    Panheads and Ironheads and Triumphs, OH MY!... Dig on your stuff, I remember when your iron head was in Greasy Culture magazine. I have a shop stuffed with pre unit stuff that always seems to be in last place to get my attention.

    This white Trump is beautiful! I've seen it on a couple of blogs and I always dug it. I really dig the headlights. Keep up the good work and can't wait to see what else you churn out.

    The front end is a bicycle springer we got at a local store. I think it was made by electra but I'm not 100% sure. I know Monark forks are real similar but the welds don't hold up as good especially on a raked bike.

    Thank you! It means a lot to me, that triumph has been a very special build to me, it took 3 years to build and I thought people would hate it. taking some time away from bikes to build my dream car, a 36 ford coupe. I hope I don't screw it up! gonna post a build thread soon...

    Well here are a few of my time robbers. Too many things I find too interesting to not get involved with. These are just cell phone pics so I hope they aren't too poor of quality. The first 3 pics are the very early stages of a scratch built engine for a yet to be built old style motorcycle.

    Next is a skin on frame kayak that I told myself I just had to make.

    And then there is a few of these toys, scratch built Sterling made long barreled and semi-auto.
    Yep, more interests than time.
