Canned Ham

Barry, I think you are on to something.

Sunday's Wrench

Up on the lift, ready to tear down the stock wheels and tires, whoo they are ugly.

Much better. The pipes sound great, but won't work with rear sets. That fender, tank and seat have got to go. Notice Garrett's bike in the background. That's the right stance. The "canned ham" air filter seems to get bigger ever photograph.

The stock kickstand was modified by the previous owner to work with the low shocks and small diameter rear wheel. That's why it's almost laying down. Gotta replace that too.

Thanks to Michelle for sending Garrett over to work Sunday afternoon.

New Shoes for Barry's Hardly

Found me a crazy good deal on the interweb for some left turn only wheels-hubs-spokes-tyres. All the way from West Virginia.

Bitchin' J&M Sportster

If you don't read the Sideburn blog, you really should! This Sportster from the Dutch Brothers is featured there. It's BAD in all the good ways!

Oh, and hey Kenny, while checking out the Dutch Brothers, take a look at this Wood-framed BMW Flat Tracker!

RIP Sky Saxon

BMW Cafes

Here are a couple of nice examples of relocating the battery and fixing the "hole" you get when you get rid of the stock airbox.

Rip it Up!!!

Ah Gene...

Cool Fender

Swiped from the XLForum. Very cool and cheap fender mod.

And some of the little bike...

I need to take more recent pics... The tail light situation has been rectified, as well as a couple small issues.

Here ya go Kenny.

Couple o' pics of the sporty as requested.

Newest Addition-Barrett's H-D 2000 1200 XL

Left and Rights on purchase day. Left and rights 4 days later after changing drag bars and risers for flat track bars, trading low shocks for stock, moving foward controls back to mid.

Greatest Rock & Roll Band of All time!!!

Or, you know, I just really like 'em!


Garrett in the Old Days

Haha! Check me out in all my '80s boot-gaitor glory! I know, boring, but nobody was doing backflips in '85!

Open and Closed Primary Cover

Decided to pull the primary cover and examine the drive. The remaining sludge the consistency of a melted milky way is a little unnerving as is the salt and pepper sized metal flakes on the oil drain plug screen. Hopefully the flakes are only from the pistons that seized. I'll find out soon enough. The milky way...? Maybe the previous owner didn't actually garage it?

Not Bright enough. Crap!

Finally ditched the sidemount, but the LED plate bolts are way too dim. Dangit! Thought they'd do the trick. Back to the drawing board...


Here's a band we were all in:

Kenny's BMDub

Barry's Tiger

Who Cares???

Garrett's '95 XL1200

The 59s are a loosely-defined group of motorcycle buffs. I started this little blog to pretty much just post pics of motorcycles, friends' bike builds, inspiration pics, etc...

Might be some random stuff, music, etc.
