  • Featured Image Greasy Dozen Run!

    So, the update is a bit delayed but, here we go! I took the now finished bike to the Greasy Dozen Run at the end of October. The first night was killer and all the guests and builders were treated to free food, free beer and a killer band called Ride to Ruin. The event was held in Columbus, Ohio in this crazy chopper compound owned by several different companies and sponsors of the Greasy Dozen Run. No one was a dick and I made a new friend in Chad, another builder from Idaho. He brought a killer and trippy XS 650 chop that looked like a 70’s dream. Chad is a killer dude and if you ever need an XS 650 built, he’s the man to know.

    The second day began with a run. There were tons of old school and rat rod style bikes. We ended in Peebles, Ohio at this huge farm in the middle of nowhere. This is the best spot to have a private chopper event! We were treated to great food, a huge bonfire and more free beer. Lots of felled trees and hay bails for seats and tons of new brothers. There was chopper burn outs in the field and rain and a few bent handlebars. Awards were given in multiple categories. I took home the “Best Chopper” and Mr. IdahoChad took best Japanese chop. Fun was had by all and I really appreciate all the sponsors, ChopCult and especially Bear with Old Bike Barn.

     



  • Featured Image Custom Saddle Bag Lids!

    The members of the  Watchmen MC have been incredible to me and Juggernaut Cycles. They have promoted the shop non-stop and have asked me to come up with a bunch of incredible projects for them to display their colors. Recently the members had their annual National get together where members from all over the country come to have a good time. One member wanted to do a something special and debut it to all his brothers at the National Roundup! He had some damage on one of his saddle bag lids and figured that by the time he paid to get it fixed or replaced, he’d pay close to what I could do something custom for. Well, he was right. We worked out a budget, he gave me a direction and I came up with a design. Once approved, the artwork was hand painted by me then sealed with clear coat by Youngblood Kustomz! Call for a quote on your custom project today! 404-551-6608

    And check out this action shot of the proud owner! Also, you can see the hand engraved Juggernaut Cycles Derby Cover!

  • Featured Image Greasy Dozen Build Update

    I’ve been working long and hard getting a few items finished for the shop so customers can see all that we have to offer. In the meantime, I have done a few things for the Greasy Dozen Build and I’m working on some bigger items to share. When I have the items complete, I will post them as a start to finish.

    I started work on the OEM transmission. Before I started tearing this thing apart, I noticed a hitch in the kicker. Every few kicks the kicker arm would slip. I will be tearing into it to fix whatever issue that is and to install some heavier duty kicker elements so my fat ass doesn’t break it in the future.

    I started with hand polishing the original cast cases to see what I could do. I think it came out awesome! I started with wet to dry sandpaper. Went from 350 and didn’t miss a step from there to 5,000 grit. Next comes polish and a sealant. Painstaking work that isn’t quick. But, the end result is satisfying and beautiful!

    The next step was getting some other OEM parts cleaned and powder coated. Check out the battery box before and after. Also, in the last photo you will see a few other parts like my custom fender struts and clutch arm and a few other pieces. All done with help from one of my best friends Allen from VSM. He did a fantastic job.

    More work to come. Heads and rocker boxes are being worked on, battery box being engraved and more than I care to think about…

  • Featured Image H-D St. Bob Ignition Relocation, What Should Have Been; Part 1

    Anyone who has a Harley-Davidson Dyna St. Bob like my ’07, knows the pain in the ass it is to turn that sucker on! Yeah, it’s kinda nostalgic to have the ignition on the neck but, it soon gets tiring. Most Harley models have an  ignition on the top of the gas tank, on the dash portion. It’s nice, you can put in the key, turn it on, take the key out and have access to turn your hog on right in front of you and in hands reach. Basically its key-less from there unless you want to lock it.

    The St. Bob though, has the ignition is on the neck. This involves turning the bike on before you get on and you leave the key dangling from the ignition. Its a bit hard to fumble with the key when you have thick winter gloves on. And, you have to get off the bike to turn it off or lean over the tank and hope your jacket doesn’t scratch it in the process. I’d always hit the kill switch on the handlebar, get off the bike and take off my gloves, glasses, helmet etc and then forget the damn ignition. Even after riding this thing daily and for thousands of miles. For my birthday this year, all I wanted was a new ignition.

    If you are confident enough in your skills to locate the ignition wires (always have a manual for your model), cut and solder wire and cut through the dash on your expensive two wheeled mistress, then, this mod is for you. If you can’t confidently locate and solder a wire or, would simply not like to mess with it, you can always bring to the shop and let me do it for you!

    If your game to get it done, here is a picture tutorial on how I accomplished mine:

    A couple tools used:

    Metal snips, 2 inch diameter hole drill bit, 4 flat bottom screws and 12 nuts with 4 lock washers, a few inches of extra wire, wire heat shrink, a piece of paper for a template and a small sheet of aluminum. I used electrical tape and a few zip ties to keep the wires together and neat. I ordered my new black ignition from ebay.

    5 tools needed

     

    First, disconnect your battery then start taking your dash all the way apart. Basically disconnect every wire and take out the little neutral light indicator. It’s easy and pretty self explanatory.

    1 dash disasemble

    From there, you are going to have to pull the little plastic wire protector/deflector out to gain complete access to the ignition wires. You may have to loosen up your fuel tank to get your hand in there. The deflector is located under the gas tank, on the bottom of the frame backbone, on top of the front cylinder, by the bike’s neck….(didn’t get a pic, sorry) Anyway, once its removed you can pull most of the wires out from there, you may have to pull other wires out of the neck from the inserts on the neck by the ignition. Getting the wires out and back in are really the hardest part of this whole ordeal.

    2 wires pulled out

    Now, you will have to get your big fat hand inside the neck from the bottom, where you pulled out the plastic protector insert. The ignition wires are mounted onto the left side of the inner neck wall. It has a little tab they may hold it in place but, mine came out easy with a light tug.

    3 wire location 4 wire located

     

    Get the ignition wires pulled out and routed through the left side wire insert area on the neck. You will see the other sets of wires leading to the dash of your bike coming out of there. Your going to have to add some length to the wires in order to make this work.

    Before we add wire, we need something to measure and mock up to. So, get ready to cut your dash. I have seen others that mentioned that they purchased a dash for a Wide Glide and just hooked it all up to that. That is a couple hundred bucks I’m not going to spend when I can just cut a hole and insert a rubber grommet.

    There are three random raised lines in the center of your dash under the neutral indicator light bar. Find the center of the center line and mark it as your pilot hole spot. Take your 2 inch diameter hole drill bit and drill it out!

    6 Find the center 7 Cut hole

    I used a Dremel to sand down the sharp edges then put some electrical tape around the edge so not to scratch up my ignition during mock up because the rubber grommet had not arrived yet. I ordered a grommet from www.cableorganizer.com. I could not find one ANYWHERE! So, I picked out exactly what I needed online and had it delivered to my door. Cost about 5 bucks delivered. Make sure you order the grommet at 2 inches total diameter. Not 2′ inner diameter or the outside diameter will be too big. I used a 1/8 grommet width.

    8 Grommet

    This will keep you busy for a minute, check back for part two in just a few days.
