New Projects up

Ok I got two new things up on the project’s page. Jim’s/Donna’s “Dawg Slayer” and “No Grey Area”

Special Request

I have teamed up with Kim Biondo of MODOT & we need blue jean, kevalar, and leather jackets, pants, chaps or vests that have been through a motorcycle accident.  We are using these materials for a Safety Awareness campaign for high school students.  Please bring items into Chariots of Fire and give to Reine.  Let us know if you want items back or not.  Our first program will be in January.

-Thanks in advance,
Reine

Jeff Decker’s Lair

If you don’t know who Jeff Decker is, look him up and you’ll find a lot of really cool sculptures. He is the man behind the “hill climber” sculpture in front of the Harly museum. He owns many older bike’s and this video is a look into that collection. Enjoy 😉

Fall riding by Mr Jim

Reading Jake’s article in last month’s newsletter brought back memories of fall rides that  Miss Donna and I have taken, the people that we have met.  I love riding in the fall, the rainbow of colors and the crisp air are some of the best things in life. That means sometimes you get wet and cold, but still there can be good memories anyway. Continue Reading →

2010 Colorfest

Thanks to all of you who joined us for this year annual Colorfest in Louisiana MO. Here’s a couple photo’s. I will try to put more up in our gallery, or facebook later.

1/8 Scale Harley Knucklehead Engine

Yep, some guy did make a 1/8th scale model of a Knucklehead. Yes it does run. I think weird stuff like this finds me to be honest. I searched for knuckleheads and I got ’em. Just a lot smaller than what I was looking for. The guys name is Jerry Kieffer, and if you click on the pic it should link you to a model site, where you can see more pic’s of the 1/8th scale bike he’s working on. Different yes, waste of time? I’ll let you decide.

Later,
