Yes the weeks are ticking away. Danny here has gone from organizing the back of the shop to building a Lakester in a couple days. Here is the new oiltank for the bike. A few more welds and we will have it hooked up. Big thanks to Mitch at Mitch's Custom Fabrication and Dennis at Calichoppers for making the oil tank. Danny is busy mounting it on the bike.

Friend of the shop and editor extra-ordinaire, David Edwards just did those of us who love period bikes a BIG favor. He bought this Von Dutch built Triumph and has set about to "recreate/restore" it. I just love it when he does this thing. You may remember his "behind the 8 ball" Indian and the resto-racer I built him. I hate to sound like a suck up, but it really tickles me when a guy spends the time and money to restore something like this instead of yet another soul-less, stocker that is over restored and just like the other fourteen in the line at Oley, PA or El Camino, CA. How many restored 1968 Bonnevilles do we need??!?!?! Get some David!
