I have been putting parts on Jason's 65 every week for a long time, and I am finally getting close to firing it up. I can not believe how much stuff goes onto a 65 flh. I really love this bike, but dont know if I will do another one in the future.
Even the Dash has a ton of parts on it. It looks awesome with the three jewels.
Here is a cool shot of the knuckleheads for this batch of motors. I have been sorting out parts for a while but almost have it licked. four of these sets of heads are for funky bikes, and the rest are going to be shiny and perfect.

My friend Paul came by the shop this week and brought his knucklehead along to do some light maintenance on it and to fix what he thought was a stuck rocker arm. He was riding the bike a few years ago and heard a loud bang and the bike quite running. This bike is very special and was built and tweaked by Harry Mollenaar in the fifties. The bike is 85 inches and has a ton of special parts and hand made features. I have known about this bike for years and seen lots of pictures of it, but this week was the first time that I actually got to touch it and see what it was like.

My beautiful and talented wife shot and edited a video for the Search for a Champion contest that Champion puts on every year. The winner of the contest is decided upon by voting, people from all over the world can go to the always a champion site and vote for their favorite videos and racers once a day, every day until March 23rd.
Her video can be seen at this link http://www.alwaysachampion.com/search-for-a-champion/entry/1568950
Go to the site and check out her video and all of the other ones and vote for your favorite one. Brittney is planning on racing her 23 this summer, plus we are loaning my 1948 Harley Hummer to a 14 year old girl in ohio to race in the light weight class this summer. Once she outgrows the bike we will continue loaning it to other young riders so they can try dirt track racing. By the time our son is big enough to race it, the bike will hopefully be pretty fast :)
Winning one of the sponsorships offered in the contest would help Brittney take her racing goals to the next level as well as sponsor more young riders who are interested in racing old bikes. So go and vote for her video once a day until March 23rd. Thanks for your help and support and have a great week

Happy new year everyone. 2013 was an amazing year filled with a lot of great experiences. I can not wait for 2014. Brittney and I will have our first child in May and we just found out that it is going to be a boy. This leads me into my second big announcement, the Cannonball Golden Ticket. My friends and I have been working on this project for the last few months and are happy to finally share the news with everyone.
Here is a short video that my friend Gina made.
