Gazoo eats thunder and shits lightning

I get home from work yesterday, tired from the early morning start, grab a bite and sit down with a beer to watch the news.  My mobile phone rings and i look at it deciding whether or not to answer the unknown number.  I picked it up and said hello to which all i could hear was the loud obnoxious revving of what i knew was a motorcycle engine.  I disconnected and did up my jeans (like i said i was watching TV, with a beer), jumped in my truck and raced down to Rob's.
As i pull up i can see him in the driveway with a grin from ear to ear, standing next to Gazoo with his hand on the throttle.  I'm not even out of the truck and he's handing me his Backstreet Buckets custom painted lid.  I threw a leg over a fired her up.  Amazing.  Loud, but not too loud that its going to get stopped every time it passes Mr Law.
I roll it down to the street, click into first and twist the throttle, second, third, forth, down to third, sharp corner, exit and back up to forth.  I'll save you from the rest but after 20 or so minutes i end up back at Rob's with him still standing there with that grin.  Which i now also had.  I handed him the lid and off he went.  20 min or so later he rolls up the drive an does a massive burn out, smoking out the street.  "it's christened" he says.  We knock back a couple oz of single malt and look to see whats next.

A few pics of the before and after can bee seen here.

She is for sale so if your interested contact us.

Presents in the post!

I did finally decide on the 21" mini drum for the Triumph Chopper and it arrived today.  I contacted our friend Francois over at The Rat Shop in Montreal and he sent it over quick fast.  Not only that but he cut and spun up a couple of spacers and axles.  This wheel is going on a DNA springer. I know you get what you pay for but this is being built on a budget.  The 3/4"axle that came with the springer was too big and the wheel needs a 5/8" axle.  So Francois did his thing and got them done.  Check out their stuff, they make some crazy machines.

Run to the Border.

Its been a while since I've posted.  Sorry, but there has been tons going on around here.  The official website will be up and running by the end of the week, fingers crossed.  You will be able to buy all kinds of great products to make your scooter YOUR scooter.  Saying that, i did a run across the border to Niagara Falls to pick up some of the aforementioned products.  Our friend Lucas from The Factory Metal Works shipped us up boxes of their handcrafted USA made products.

We have brackets, bungs, brake kits, plugs, engine mounts and on and on, but more importantly we have bolt on hardtails for unit, pre unit, 650 and 500 Triumphs, and a beautiful front loop.  All available from our web shop.
