all I think about

Oh man, all I think about is two wheel transportation. The only time I ever consider getting an actual car is sometimes I look at ads for old trucks – because these can hold motorcycles.

I have two current projects going right now and a future project already lined up! I love bringing something back from the dead and watching the mechanics of an engine – to see how everything goes together and to logically figure out why something isn’t working.

I buy tools and parts every week – just today actually! I ordered parts to be take my vespa crank apart, and once I figure out everything I need, I’ll make a 2nd order. And I’ll put it back together, and tune it, and it will go 20 mph faster, and I’ll be excited.

Then I’ll make one of these:

I want to build a super lightweight, totally street-illegal Honda CB160 racer. I’ve been looking for a junker CB160 lately, but no luck yet. That’s ok though – my Vespa is my #1 priority right now. But just look at the bike you see above.

I’ll give you a moment.

It is so basic and stripped down and just… awesome. You remove everything from the bike except what is required to make it go and make it stop. Strip off the center stand, side stand, the electric starter, even the kickstarter! You push start these bikes. You remove the alternator, because you just charge the battery for the weekend and go. Take off the air filters and side covers, knock up new rear pegs and a brake lever. Rattle can the frame.

I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant.

So that’s my next project – I have my feelers out for a bike (and one bite already).

I love motorcycles. They don’t disappoint.

Oh yeah, I think about girls a lot too.
