31st ANNUAL VANCOUVER SWAP MEET



Got some good shit... and sold some shitty shit.  All in all it was a very succsessful day.  Special thanks to the Angels for having us and thanks to Gus from Gus's Shop for checking over my cylinder head for me. 
I will post more later.

HUMANSTER WHEEL UPDATE

Remember that post on the Human-sized hamster wheel Dunnett-Brown was building at the shop for a local artist? They finished this project while I was in Scotland so I missed out on the fun but...


Here is the art show where it ended up:



Michael said it was a fun show.

PARTY UPDATE!

PARTY ON THE 4TH!  SUNDAY! SUNDAY SUNDAY...not saturday the 3rd.  My bad. 

This just prolongs the fun.  VCMC and Pierced Arrows on Saturday and NFMC Season Opener on Sunday. 

Be there.

SHOVEL EXHAUST FLANGES

I am going to be making some new exhaust pipes tonight so I made up some flanges.  I added a little hole to the usual design so I can safety wire the bolt later.
They are cut from 0.250" Plate steel.
If anyone is interested in a set email me and we can work something out.
