Take 2 on the upholstery, Much better this time however I wish I didn't glue the sides. This is going to be fine for this bike.

I have a lot invested in this dude and now I can honestly say that he is better than I am at making stuff shine.
Thanks for making me look good brother!
Doing a ton of engine polishing for dusty's Show Class Peoples champ Born free 7 build. I hope it pans out for him but the competition is going to be tough this year.

Im working on seat upholstery 2.0 and I have a couple details to clean up but for the most part it is good enough to scramble through the woods with. Wish it was a SR400 or SR500 but the 250 is better than I thought it would be and if I ever find a 500 or TT550 motor, I think it will go in without to much modification.

This machine, built in 1922 but has been in my family for 40 years. When my mom gave it to me 15 years ago she said "you should put a motor on it". Well, I finally did. I also rebuilt, cleaned, tuned it up a bit and made the table. Not to mention, with some advice from Pineapple Jay, I picked out the appropriate needles and thread to start getting a little more decorative with my saddle making.

1969 Bonneville purchased new in 69 was turned into a chopper in the early 70's.
a short while later the original owner had it in his driveway where someone backed into and mash fucked it up a bit. From there he rolled it into the garage where it sat for 40 plus years until Gordo spotted it and eventually worked out a deal and rolled out with it for a song. It was a super well done for the times , nothing outrageous and for the most part clean and well .
I straightened out the collision damage, upgraded and rewired the electrical system, replaced the ignition with a modern electronic setup and rebuilt the carbs. Was a blast to ride.
