Finally! Time in the shop...

That's right. Nothing to do this weekend, but hustle around the shop trying to get as much done as possible before heading out on the EDR this week. No, not trying to get any last-minute bikes ready for the ride. These are all the bikes for Born Free. Time's ticking down, and there's still a lot to do. If we're lucky, we'll have 3-4 bikes done just in the nick of time. Got some good things done - Panhead is coming together nicely, and as long as the final pieces show in the mail this week, it'll be being broken down for paint / powder / chrome next week and then back together by month's end ready for shakedown. The knuck is coming along nicely too, although you won't be getting any pics of that one. Super, secret stuff you see. Let's just say that there's a little fiberglass work left to do, and then a bunch of brackets, then she too will be ready for breakdown. Given the timeline, probably not seeing the knuck on the road till middle of June, if not right before the show. Cutting it close for sure! Here's a peek at the weekend -

Pan coming together nicely. Fender mounted finally.

Bent up some struts to make the passenger a little safer. 

And, turned this old shifter perch for forwards...

Into this. Much easier to shift with mids when the lever's not a mile away.
