Lost in texas

Lately I have been seeing more of the us, in particular Austin, Tx. I found that Austin is quite a fun city. From seeing Muder city devils and slayer to wondering how the sword got stuck in the ceiling. Beside the sword also wondering where four cases of wine came from. A diverse little city with a character all its own. Found a little spot to hideout called "yellow jacket social club" full of bearded hipsters ridin bicycles. Finally spotted some motorcycles saving the day. Welded on tailsection and matching firestones caught my eye on this little honda.

Goodbye for another great one.

Jim Bouchard, devoted husband, father, and so much more. Attended his services and was reminded of his quick wit and penchant for handing out nicknames to those he liked. Great friend of my moms. He always called me "rusty" which years ago I never got till my mom explained it wasn't bad, I just had red hair. You will b missed greatly. This was his bitchin' car that could always be seen cruisng the streets of Helltown. The streets of heaven will never be the same.

Bob and the stock 750

While doin' a little pub crawl last weekend I got to meet Bob. As I pulled in to O'sullivans irish pub here in Helltown I was asked if that was a 750. Then the 60 something guy told me he was going to drop off his dad who must have been at least eighty. 10 minutes later Bob shows back up to the pub on his stock 75' cb750, bitchin' stock bike with a cool tail section. We hada couple beers then we left he bar for a little put. Thinking bob was gonna ride with us we headed out the way he suggested but when we made the turn to head to the next spot Bob kept going. Nice to meet you Bob maybe next time.

Hemet Packing Co., we pack em' tight

While the man was away eating saurkraut and struedel, I managed to yank the next project out of the field where it had sat for the last twenty five years. This truck was my grandpa's gold watch when he retired from the Packing company here in hell town. This truck used to pull about 6 little trailers filled with oranges from the groves and transport them to the packing company. Alot of work ahead but the word is it was driven to where it was parked some time ago so with luck she will run again.

The first long ride was to the arena the friday before. Other than some clutch and carb tuning issues everything is well. Been riding every day since.

CAFE' de Crewl

Paint time and look at this amazing color. Whiskey Brown with some Magic from Billy Crewl longtime friend and painter extraordinaire. This is him mixing up all the good stuff so it has lots of flake and just the right shade of brown. Last I heard kids drink root beer so for me whiskey brown was the obvious choice and was essentialy the color Billy had in mind when he thought of me.

This is the Murano mixed in, the picture does no justice as this is the abalone shell effect with greens and blues. Off the Hook!

The Man getting it done....Thanks Billy and Thank You Notebooms for Everything.
