Well she is back on the ground with a new set of shoes and a upgraded and lowered suspension. She could be lower, but this truck is a driver and a utilitarian vehicle for the shop. So function over form on this one………

In Germany/Austria, Saint Nick and Krampus go around like a good cop/bad cop team. Krampus, a whip carrying, horned goat demon, with a long red tongue takes the naughty ones, while Santa Claus rewards the good ones. (Hopefully there are no naughty ones out there as Krampus has some whipping switches ready)

Tis’ the season to be upgrading…Did a little trading and upgraded from the evo powered Road King to a twinkie powered FLH Standard bike with a lot of power adder parts and this one even has a radio….Cant wait for summer, especially since I am sitting here watching it snow again with a crap ton of snow on the ground already.
So here is to good times and summer riding that is just around the corner.

Lots been going on since late summer. Working hard taking care of family business since my father passed. Its not been much fun and working on getting my mother in good shape and on her own has been a challenge.
But enough about that……. Good news is the shop is moving to a more friendly area as far parking,room and just a nicer building.
Maybe in the future this may become a full time gig and the change is needed…Gotta give a big thanks to Matt Young and Dave herr for helping me move all my crap last weekend. You dont realize how much crap you have till you have to move all of it.
So i hope to get back at it and post up some photos and stuff….

Well I had been kicking around some mild customizing ideas for the back of the Merc...Well Heres what I came up with. I had about wrote the rear bumber off as it was bent twisted and banged up. So I figured if I could hammer cut and weld it in to something and if it didnt turn out scrap it...Also the plate mount was ugly and I wanted a long lower look for the rear.. Started with this.
And ended up with this. I Hammered the bumper straight and made a recessed pocket for the plate in it...next I removed and filled the old gas filler hole in the rear body panel.Next was the rear lamps for a much lower look I removed the tail lamp assys and cut off the back up lamps section and added to the qtrs to make it have a lower more folling rear....Now on to the front end ....
