Wrappin' up the Primary Gasket & Choppin' the Rear Fender

Posted by Ava Larkin on Thursday, May 26, 2011, In : 2 Wheels 
I finished the primary gasket today and started working on the rear fender.  Turns out the David Bird hard tail's bottom brace obstructs the chain, so we had to weld on a chain tensioner.  All-in-all it was a productive day!

Fabbing up a Spacer for the Bonneville Speed Week Race Bike's Primary Cover

Candies and Flakes have been an obsession of mine for the last 3 years or so - practically since I straddled my first bike.  Though, being an East Coaster (albeit from the Florida Bay area) I have to give it to the esse's from down south and their bagged rides for giving me my first glimpse of painted perfection back in high school.  Regardless, there are many who stand out as artists in this industry, but I've got a soft-spot for Rich's work.  Check out the goods online at
