I got some good news on a second job I picked up, and is VERY motorcycle related...

Last week I was talking to Mitch Bergeron at his shop, and he had been watching me build up my bike and must have been somewhat impressed to offer me a job, which I took!!!

I'm damn excited about it. The first day there (Saturday) I began working on one of Mitch's own personal bikes.
He had me re-lace and true a 21" rim, mount a tire, and drill/tap the hub for a dual disk set up. Later on, he'll teach me how to TIG weld and use his english wheel.

Maybe I'll be able to fab up an aluminum tank for my Cafe bike...

2 or 4 cylinder? I don't have any to sell, but you can browse ebay. You can try throwing on a set of Dellorto DHLAs....

Speaking of Cafe bikes...we were weren't we? Mike Seate has a new magazine out called Cafe Racers. Format is great with excellent photography and slick articles. He's starting a project based on a CB 750 which should be pretty cool. I was thinking about putting the clip-ons back on my Cafe Sporty, but my back and wrists responded with a resounding "No!" Instead, I'll swap the bobbed rear fender for a stainless one of undetermined British origin from my bone pile. 'Got an old period tail light too!

Ooh, Iron Sporty. I've got an `83 I built into a cafe style. I was at the local Fair and a Harley Club was there and I told `em what I had and they said, "Wow, that's a really old bike, does it run?" sigh. Your bike looks nice, cafe or not. Late `70s?

Bars are Royal Enfield, mirror is an old bicycle mirror I found at a yard sale for 25 cents.
