Butcher Shop current build...

So this is it. The Top Secret shit we've all been working on past couple months. Yes, it's wood grain. Don't ask what the coat is or how it's done, I can honestly say I don't know. The whole bike will be done wood. Frame, tins, everything.
Those are the legs Louie shaved down. He did that with a hacksaw and sandpaper by the way. Lou has WAY more patience than me, Nick or Bryan.

This is some shit I made the past couple days. I made the seat bracket, fish mounted the stanchions, then made the posts, Nick and I decided to use those hitch pins to hold the springs down instead of plain old nuts and bolts.

My favorite part so far is that we're using a skinny front size rim in the rear.

Here is the before and after of those legs Louie shaved down.

Nick cut down the cam cover before we sent the motor out to get rebuilt. really dig the cut down look too now thats it's all back together. I sat there for a LONG damn time with scotch-brite to all the covers and rocker boxes on the motor to get that brushed look.

There you go, watch this blog over the next few months, maybe i'll leak some more shit from the lab.


By poking around some more, I found another pic of my new favorite bike. I just wish I had thought this up first.


I think i'm in love

I found this pic out there in the blogosphere somewhere. i think that it said these bikes were in Venice, Italy or something. Anyway, that flatty in the middle is about the boss-est thing i've ever seen. We've always hated on those mag wheels, but powder coat them white, add some BMX handle bars and knobby tires and instant GT Performer repli-racer. I wish i could find more pics of this bicycle. i mean motorcycle.


Sin Alley Saints Car Show in Norton, MA

So even though it was weeks ago, here are some pics from when we went ot the Sin Alley Saints car show up in Norton, MA. It was a good time, we hid beer in the back of Dennis' car and drank outside. There were some cool cars, but it ended up fucking raining, which is typical around here lately. All the Pics are by Lisa Gourley.

here's Lou and Nick's old man Scott leaving.

Nick's Model A pickup

That's CJ's dog Frisco, check out that red rocket.

This is Dennis' 54 Ford. Soon it'll have a 5.0 from a Mustang

In the front of Dennis' car is Christian's Triumph from Choppahead

These Butcher Shop stickers are everywhere now.

here's a good shot of my stupid ass getting soaked on the ride home.

And one more thing, we were all at the Whaling City Festival car/bike show in New Bedford last Sunday. Nick's Shovelhead took 2nd place in it's class. Then on the ride home he got pulled over for speeding. And his bike got towed.
