Giddy Up Chopper Show 2015

0 Comments 01 May 2015

Giddy Up Vintage Chopper Show is a custom motorcycle show with held in the Austin, Texas area. Nestled in the hills of New Braunfels, TX at a local Ice House the event definitely takes cues from the surrounding environment that doesn’t have you feelin’ like you are at a bike show. Lots of cool places to layout/chill and have a cold beer. Most of the locals camped out at the nearby campground and cruised back and forth throughout the day. Made the event not feel so crowded and also gave people a place to escape from the hot son if needed.

This year they raffled off a 1969 Harley Chopper and a panhead motor! It was the 2nd year of the event and our first to attend. Glad we made it out to see what the fuss was all about. We’ll be there next year for more shenanigans and good times.

Austin Speed Shop Visit

0 Comments 13 April 2015

We were out in Texas for the Giddy Up Show (more on the next post) and attended the pre-party at the Austin Speed Shop in Austin. It was our first time at the shop and was stoked to see the detail that went into the setup. The shop features as a custom car and fab facility with a gift shop. It’s a cool place to bring the family, as they can see vehicles being turned into works of art. There are plenty of huge plate windows to look through while you shop for goodies like shirts and hats etc.austin-speed-shop-1 austin-speed-shop-2 austin-speed-shop-3 austin-speed-shop-4 austin-speed-shop-5 austin-speed-shop-6

Hell On Wheels Stadium Steeplechase

0 Comments 23 March 2015

The Hell On Wheels Stadium Steeplechase was last Saturday March 21st at the Glen Helen Raceway or Gelen Helen as they typo-ed in the flyer and screamed about the pits by our buddy Mark from Rusty Butcher. Gelen Helen, Gelen Helen dog… Where’s my Starbucks soy frappuccino?! Anyway they held the event on the Trophy Truck Track. Boasting sweeping turns, tabletops and wide open action. Or more like dust bowl and sandy washes whatever you want to call it. The event was still lots of fun as we always make the best out of it and like to give Hayden and Mr. Ball a hard time.

We even managed to drag out the “new guy” Paul. It was his first time on a dirt bike in over 15 years. Took a while to get the ol’ 2 stroker running but once we did we couldn’t get him off that thing. Good times for sure!

 

Classes were:
Ladies: open to all bikes
Mini bikes up to 100cc
Vintage MX pre 74
Modern MX 1980+
Open Twins
Bomber 75-80 and dual sport

The 1 Moto Show 2015

0 Comments 23 February 2015

We made it back up to Portland for The 1 Moto Show 2015. Portland is a great city with lots of awesome places to eat and hang with friends. This year the event was held in a old naval manufacturing plant from back in the day. Complete with a Steam Hammer this place screamed industrial and made for a great addition to all the high quality bike builds.

We were invited to bring the Jackrabbit Scrambler to the show and of course had to get her dirty with some local Portland mud. Found an open field behind the hotel and ripped her up proper! Rode across the Burnside bridge and thru the town straight to the show.

Here are some pictures from the weekend, enjoy!

Sissy bar, Slammer Shocks and Fork Pre Load Adjusters.

IMG_3116First jack the back of the bike up.

IMG_3119Remove rear shocks.

IMG_3117IMG_3130 IMG_3134Remove the front two fender strut bolts.

IMG_3135Insert the front of the sissybar first.

IMG_3142Leave the rear bolts in place until the front two are snug.

IMG_3146

Set a rag down to prevent the paint from being scratched.

IMG_3149

IMG_3152Now you can remove the rear fender strut bolts.

IMG_3155Install supplied fender strut bolts.

IMG_3156 IMG_3166Installation of the sissybar is complete.

IMG_3218 IMG_3170Next we will install the Slammer Shocks. Remove the top bolts first to allow it to hang then lower the bike to install the bottom shock bolts.

IMG_3167Time to install the Fork Preload Adjusters. First remove the top clamp to gain access to the fork caps.

IMG_3182Make goofy face and have a good time!

IMG_3184IMG_3185Loosen the triple clamp pinch bolt before removing stock fork cap.

IMG_3189Jack the front of the bike up to reduce fork cap pressure.

IMG_3192Watch out, the fork caps are still under pressure and tend to jump out!

IMG_3199Might need to cut your existing spacer to allow access for the Burly Brand Fork Preload Adjusters.

IMG_3205Supplied Fork Cap tool allows the Adjuster to be installed without any marks. IMG_3211IMG_3216

Set the preload evenly to a desired position.
