This is the Morgan Cyclecar… Re-engineered from the ACE, S&S motor, Mazda gearbox. Ash Wood Frame, Steel Tube Chassis…….
Well, after getting the Harley (yea, I know) the big news is that in December 2014 I got the news that my adventure with “The Shop, or The Studio, or The Building” the 4000 square foot industrial building where all the work on the BMW was done, and some work on the Wagon, and all the work on the Revcon, and the Avion, and a thousand small projects in between when I would need an Arbour Press, or a drill press, or a band saw, or an Anvil, or a massive overhead crane, was over! The building was sold, time to bug out, time to move the Avion back outdoors, and house the ’58 Station Wagon, and all 5 bikes in my 2 car garage.
Losing the work space and secure storage is painful, going from 4000 sq feet down to 4 square feet of workspace is tight, but worse is not having a refuge, a place where I can go to just be “off the grid”, drink cheap beer and whiskey, watch bad movies, hang out with my buddy Todd, and yes, even actually work on something.
SO, here is to The Shop, and to Todd for letting me share in the magic, and be the only other person to be granted a key to “Man Land” where the only rules where you had to have a shot of “shop” whiskey upon entering (the lesser known brands), and you never had to pick up your tools until you wanted to. It was a grand adventure.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
well the summer has slipped by again! no major project work this summer… until last week!
The “Dark One” my Triumph Bonneville is up for sale on Ebay, because i bought a HARLEY! I got a great deal on a 1991 Heritage Softail Classic, and I have already removed 17lbs of unsightly chrome from it.
I will still have my wife’s Triumph in the stable, but 6! motorcycles is probably about 2 too many.
As we look forward to tonight starting the 62nd Detroit Autorama, I thought it might be fun to look at some old photos from the 50th!
My father and I had cars in Autorama from 1975 to 2002, and I put some cars in myself for a couple years after that. Then I lost interest in cars, my car club imploded, and I got into bikes.
It was a significant show, a one time only gathering of some very historically significant Rods and Customs…. And my ’51 Ford Club Coupe!
Click on the pics to make em big!
The 450 is for sale, so beth took a last scoot around on it!
