More Stuff From Saturday And The Ha Ha Honda...

After I left Conte Kustoms Saturday I swung by GarCo expecting them to all be gone to the Smokeout, but it turns out that Larry and Ashley were off having fun, but Spenser decided to stick around the home front. I guess that's a good thing since he took advantage of the time to wheel and deal to get a 250 Rebel for his sweetie Ha Ha Holly. It's about time she had her own bike. I think a lot of the ideas in this bike will be Spenser's but the sweat involved will be Holly's. They got started and so far so good. Obviously you can see the sheetmetal is gone, but they also relocated the top shock mount back about 2-3". That'll raise the seat a little and give them more room to play with the rear fender set up. Holly did all the grinding for this and Spenser did the welding. Sounds like a good combination to me.

You can see a little of the work on the shock and part of the new handlebars. They're a set of nice ACE bars from a cafe racer flipped upside down and used in the conventional configuration.

Better shot of the bars and you can see Holly in the background. She's really into this and I can't wait to see the results.

Better view of the shock relocation and handlebars. Once again that's Holly and Spenser's dog Luke in the back.

J-Body is finally making progress on his shovel. It's damn near ready to tear apart for paint. Can't wait to see it when it's finished.

Love the new handlebars and sissybar. The bike is over 8' long and bad ass!

Yep, it's been wet here a lot lately. Right after I got to the shop it rained like crazy.

Of course it kept raining and after a couple of hours I gave up and rode home in it. Oh well, it's not the first time I've ridden in the rain. Hell, it's not even the first time this month ;-)
