While Chris may claim that this bike built itself, he made it happen, against what some would have seen as possible in a months time.

This morning was spent driving around getting random bits and bops, mostly from Marshall's. No, not THAT marshalls.....although I could use some Calvin Klein underwear, some Polo Socks and a random non-fitted yankees world series hat....(yes they will always have that shit there).
The rest of the day was spent in the garage, walking in circles, thinking about what is next. I did stop to grab some lunch with Mike, and then it was back to the garage until just now. Here's what we are working with just after midnight:
Not fully running yet, and yes I look like I haven't slept in a few days (true), and sound a bit like Sloth from Goonies (a great movie that I haven't seen in a while) but a 32 year old machine re-built by hand that actually starts??? It's a happy moment.
It doesn't really matter if you're into motorcycles or not. The truth is, making something, or working hard on something is SO rewarding when it works/starts/comes together. I don't care if its assembling the best fantasy baseball team, getting that job you wanted, or even the joy of finally buying the TV you've been researching, it just feels good when your shit works out....especially when you know what went into it.

here's a shot of the blue water coming down Birmingham from this morning. not too shabby
went down to North Park to have dinner with John and Triona. These two are just so cute.
Rode this death machine around today.
and finished up the night with the shovel looking a bit more done, but still a long ways away.

Plus there are some great Eames fiberglass side chairs with red leatherette upholstery. Herman Miller must have had a great contract with this city.
