Old Foto Friday

RetroFit will be back to it's regular posting again. I've been on hiatus for awhile due to my job and curve balls life throws at you. Anyway, I know many of you probably see the blogs being paved over by insta-everything. Yes RetroFit now has an instagram too, but the content on both will be different. I'm going to keep RetroFit going as long as possible or until I run out of Old Fotos. I'm also starting a new segment called "Milwaukee Mondays" (Let's hope the MoCo isn't following me, you'll see why) Enough computer, it's spring, get out and pull some wheelies!!

1 Year Ago Today

I can't believe it's been a year already since my beloved (and hated) Slum Goddess went to that junk yard in the sky.

Strange Days Sportster Progress!

We made a little more headway this weekend on the Strange Days Sportster. The oil tank now has all the bungs it needs a long with a side fill we made. Everything fits great except the rear fender hit the back of the oil tank.
We can't have that so I broke out the grinder. I enjoy utilizing as much stock stuff as possible and coming up with simple solutions....

There you have it! Just the right amount of clearance and it looks factory. Stay tuned for more!

Side Car Sunday!

My dad and his father (though who wasn't a biker) on Billy's 750 Honda in a wishbone frame. Pretty wild. Still have the helmet, and still have the sidecar.

Old Foto!

My ol'man's '69 sportster in 1970. The bike was just a year old and look what was all done to it. Look at that wild paint job! The shed in the back where the bike was kept use to be a pigeon coup.

I'll take a shot of that knuck please...

47 Industries Unfinished Bike Show

Big thanks again to Mike for hosting the show. We lucked out on great weather. The Strange Days Ironhead got some attention along with all the other cool bikes that were there. It was really a good way to beat the winter blues, its been hard on all of us.

Strange Days Sportster Progress

Today we made some great progress at the RetroFit Headquarters. The fab work on the stainless sissybar is almost finished and Ben kicked ass building our trick oil tank/battery box. I also began modifying the stock Sportster fender. The flat spot in the side skirts will be trimmed off and all the holes will be filled in. You'll just have to see what its all about at 47 Mike's Unfinished Bike Show this weekend! See you there!
