Quack Quack........

Dashing Duck!

Word of the day

Genesis 32:24-29

24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak." But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
27 The man asked him, "What is your name?" "Jacob," he answered.
28 Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, [e] because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome."
29 Jacob said, "Please tell me your name." But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.

Spy Picks!!!!

Yo, keep this on the down low, but Shoes Fiddy Pan is comin' right along. I can almost hear the whine of the generator!!!!

So Close......

And still so far. Finally makin' head way on my Ironhead.

True Or False?

Definately true. Trued up by yours truely and ready for action. These belong to Shoebert who apparently likes to keep his options open. So many wheels and only one Panhead!?!?

Proverbs 1:20-33

20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares;
21 at the head of the noisy streets [c] she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech:
22 "How long will you simple ones [d] love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?
23 If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.
24 But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand,
25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke,
26 I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you-
27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
28 "Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me.
29 Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD,
30 since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke,
31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm."

Can You Hear It?

If you listen closely it will tell you what it wants! SHHHHHHH! Listen.............

Ole Glory!

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early lightWhat so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly sworeThat the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,A home and a country should leave us no more!Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.No refuge could save the hireling and slaveFrom the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall standBetween their loved home and the war's desolation!Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued landPraise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall waveO'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Hebrews 6:19

19We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
How i would have liked to add that verse to this tattoo!

Did That Hurt...

If it did, she never let it show! This is a tattoo I did on my sister in law a few years back. Man how i miss tattooing!!!!!! Just not a good way to make a livin' in a small town.

Panhead Dreamin'....

Ahhh, that point in the build where victory is near, when all the parts are starting to form that image that has been, for so long, eched in your subconcious. Where lust and love are strangely synonimous and a few breif glances can cause you to completely forget the painfull cold of a January day and permit you to desire only one thing..........


17The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name."
18He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."


Hey Brad, what ya drivin'?!?! This is the truck that got rear ended with the Flathead in it. Not a good day for truck or bike. Truck was a total loss and the bike frame was broke in several places. Fortunately, Brad lived to fight another day and so will his Flatty.

Its A Sickness

And we've all got it. Snapped this pic in Shoes shop today. More going on in there than one can even imagine!

More Flat Head Love!!!

This one hails from the Motor City. It belongs to a fellow named Brad who I had the pleasure of meeting and riding with last summer. You can see more of him at

Good Eye Mate....

Where have all the J Ryans gone? Dude builds some crazy cool motorbikes, and he's a great guy too. Unbeatable combination! (he's the one on the right.)

Money Shot!

This is the angle that makes the early Gen. 2 Camaros the sexiest Muscle Cars ever built.

Flatties 4 Life

If you want an engine with all the power and reliability of a sewing machine, this is the engine for you!

Hmmmm, More Troublehead!!

Spotted this jewel at The Redneck Rumble last summer in TN. Hard task to slim down a swing arm Shovel and make it look like something. This one will do nicely. The Rumble is an excelent event if you like Hot Rods and Old Motorcycles. Check it out at
Scooter is a real stand up guy that runs a great event!


Heres an engine i just finished and delivered to a friend in Louisville KY. Im a Shovelhead lover through and through. All what you're raised on i guess.
