It's April in the Great NorthWest and it's still raining like a Crazy . Perfect time to get that ride ready for the dry stuff . Come on dry weather. Lot's of shop time when it's like this. I know a lot of you are ready now. Posting a few images of parts I make in my small shop. We have these handle bars we call Dukes and Big Dukes . One inch or inch and a quarter tube. Chrome , powdercoat or raw. Any rise and width you want.
If anyone out there rides a softail and wants it to look a little harder . Here you go. Converted a softail swingarm to the old style axleplate's I manufacture. We furnish stock swingarms or you can send me yours to modify. Micky Edlund from Sweden used to make a wishbone frame with a swingarm using the rigid style axleplates. Don't think Micky is doing frames anymore. I own one of his rigid frame bikes , and I flat love it. 40 degrees in the neck , 180 mm rear tire and an Evo motor. The guy definitely knows his trade. Of course her name is Road Rage . One of my earlier posts shows me sitting on her.
Below is a picture of 2 single downtube necks we are offering . Stainless steel or mild steel. Neck is set at 30 degrees and the downtube and back bone tube is for 1 1/2 " tube. Easy to weld . No other shop I know of offers cast steel necks in so many options. I can flat out make anything you want to dream up. Call me and we can talk about any of these parts . 360 750 6780 shop # .
I only have 2 of these sweet little Stainless steel Axleplate belt buckles left . If your a frame guy like me , this is one you might like . They are reasonable and definitely show some style. Measure 3 " tall and 4 " wide. 2 left my friends.
Now here's one shot I took at the mouth of the Columbia River . That's a good fishing spot . Apparently the water fountain is a little fishy smelling .
I enjoy posting images and adding some text. If you have suggestions or questions about any of the images or just want to say Hi , I am here in the shop staying dry till the weather breaks.
