Heavy Thursday - May 2018

After a brutally long winter, it's nice that the riding season is finally back in full swing, complete with bike shows and bike nights.  May 3rd was the first Thursday of the month which meant it was Heavy Thursday at The Joint.  There was a good turnout but I was hoping to check out some winter builds.

I rode my '04:

Kevin's shovelhead was the chop-chop-choppiest chopper there.  The new bars that Jake made are awesome.

Speaking of bars, these were pretty cool too:

Elvis lives!!!  Kevin Baas seemed happy to have him back on the road.

Here are a few more bikes:

See ya next month!

Monkey Chop

If you've been following me over on Instagram you know I recently picked up two more late-70s Honda Z50s to add to my Evil Monkey (aka Snow Monkey in the winter).  One clearly caught fire so I call it the Toasted Monkey.  I'm rebuilding that one for my kids (and they're helping!).  The other was pretty much just a frame so it's a blank canvas for me that I'm calling the Monkey Chop.


It won't look exactly like this but here's a quick mock-up of the direction the Monkey Chop is going:

Now I just need to crank up this song in my garage to get motivated.  It's classic disco from 1979 and it's perfect!!!

Here are some choppers featured at the 2018 Progressive International Motorcycle Show.  First up is Zack's panhead.

Bob's Evo and Panhead:

Mike's shovelhead:

Not sure who built these but these two bikes were cool.

I'll wrap it up with Eric's shovel.
