The great outdoors!

Good ventilation is real important when painting shit... specially when painting shit. But even so when painting an oilbag and re-painting the frame cause you missed spots... Spring is good to us and keeps all stuff inside the garage from getting a shade of whatever paint yer using.

A great moment in time! 1999!

Three flatties on the loose around the frogsea in 1999. I think we did like 1200 km's in three days. And we had a blast. Men on my 47 with Flathead power jugs and lids to keep it from overheating. Freudo had my 46 U mill in his 41 (I think it) to keep him moving since the US-renovation he bought blew up after 500 meters the summer before. And G the old Zapster with the... G... ran like a MF...

Might have posted this pic before. Shit the same. It makes me feel good and now that the sun is back out here up north things are looking good!

slowly but surely...

...things might be coming together. And the summerlike weather we're graciously experiencing right now makes me wish I was further along the way... But thats never been the case all these years. So why this year. And I still haven't started in the Flattie chop...

Bad service and incompetence thy have a name!!!

I have never ever been met by a more stupid or rude person than the moron who worked at this place.

When I asked if I could get half a Lasagna for my 5 year old the idiot replied in a clearly aggressive fashion... And what do you want med to do with the other half?????

I know what you should do with it...

Knucko came knockin'

with his beautiful and soulful Hillbilly Flathead. He even let me take a spinn around the block. And I actually know few things /there are some though) that get my heart pumpin' so good!

Flatheads are more than motorcycles.. they sync up with more fundamental aspects of human beings... And all that allow themselves to be exposed will feel this.

Shapes of things to come...

Some early mornings and soon we'll be done... he said in an over-optimistic fashion...
But it will probably be an ok ride eventually.

Salty flathead again!

Awesome! I wish I could see it run...and hear it!

Mean flathead power

Real nice and raw. Flathead torque comes to good use going uphill!

Securing the sissy

in the right position. Trying to get the fender right too and them both together. Frame primed and ready for some paint. Black all the way. Shiny black. And soon... great spring weather now and it would have been nice to be done and ready... But that has never happend and I guess it never will...
Nice early morning hours in the garage and then back home for a nice family breakfast.

Well might as well...

...touch up the fram paintwise before things go back on. Newly renovated tranny by the great mr Krantz. The 57FL with CCE tins will go in the chromed chop... one of these days...

And as always the Yellow fever is in the works...not. But Axel is still only 10 and it's gotto be ready for his 18:th. So still some time I guess.

Hmm... I was just going to switch the mill.

But as always everything goes as ideas start to evolve. But it will be a chop with my EL knuck. And as black is the new flake it will probably be all black. And with a RL front end and a neat little sissy I got from Mattias LeBeef. And so on and on and on...

A salty flatie

Now that's a dream scenario... A souped up flattie and a few days at El Mirage or at some of the other classic ride-fast places ( me watching and my brother and too-fast dont go well together...) Bu as long as it's a dream I see myself in the seat.
