We had "memorial day" last weekend.

Memorial Day is one of the federal holiday on the last Monday of May every year.
It is a day for remembering the people who passed away while serving in the United States Armed Forces.


Around my neighbors, usually people spend this weekend with their family to do BBQ is very typical.



P5264186.jpg
We did this!!


P5264184.jpg
Then like this!!


P5264181.jpg
Also like that too!!



This year I spent whole weekend at upstate NY.
My friend Julia Haltigan invited us to go up her summer house this "Memorial day weekend".


P5264176.jpg
What a beautiful country house this is!!


P5264175.jpg
Emmet who Julia's dad is making fire


P5264174.jpg
Prep for BBQ



P5264164.jpg
I know this number #703!!




That was a beautiful day, no rain, no bull shit, no celly and no internet.



P5264149.jpg
There is small river behind the house


P5264150.jpg
We can tubing too


P5264153.jpg
This is the back side of house


P5274218.jpg
Very nice


It looks like I was so relaxing and enjoy slow life all the time, doesnt it?
It is true but it isn't.
The truth is...
I was just sitting in front of lap top whole 3 days to fight with computer thing.
Of course I went to ride motorcycle, got some naps with hammock and did tasty BBQ.
But most of the time I was sitting in front of this PC.


That was really tough but finally the thing which I was fighting with came out very successful.



Check this out.
We went Daytona trip couple months ago following vintage national flat track circuit.
Those footage are from the trip.

Ken Granger's Trackmaster Triumph with "ARD"


P5204083.jpg
Some people say ARD mag is like typical west cost style, that's a totally BS!
On the other hand those mag needs just kick and go no BS BTRY circuit or anything.
I like that style though.
Technically I prefer with BTRY even considering about the weight.

Finally race season started around North East area.
We went Daytona trip couple month ago but around NY was still cold up here.

After Daytona trip, I fixed the frame then gave her fresh top end.

Time to build whole another fresh motor huh...

We work British vintage bike like Triumph, BSA, Norton and so on.
Most of them are Triumph.
60's and 70's are very popular these days.
2012 right now, we are talking about almost 50 60 years old bike.
Shit always happens.


P3063228.jpg
Mile's chopper got something wrong.
Motor completely doesn't wanna turn.


P3063229.jpg
Cylinder was completely seized...
I couldn't pop the cylinder at all...


P3063230.jpg

P3063232.jpg
Bigend nut came out then rod got loose I think.

I came back from Daytona with broken frame again...
This is 4th time I broke this frame.
I'm kinda getting tired of this breaking then fixing frame action.
There is no choice to me... I gotta fix that.


P4173917.jpg
My friend Neil Fenton fixed the frame as always.
Thanx Neil!!


P4173920.jpg
This frame now is like a frankenstein...
It got nice back bone this time!!
Hope not gonna break anymore... I don't wanna deal with this shit...


P4173921.jpg
I should stop talking bull shit and keep working on this bike huh?


P4193934.jpg
I didn't change much.
Right now I really like how this bike react.
For sure I could be much better but "I" could be, not this bike could be.
I just gave her fresh top end job new rings, fresh honing, valve seat cut and new valves something like that.


P4203937.jpg
My friend Danny stole my camera this time.

P4173914.jpg
Don't ask me about which year this bike is!!
I really don't know but I think '64 or '65 something around.
Anyway this bike came with some problem.
Biggest prob was oil doesn't come back to oil tank.

I kinda like this bike though.
250cc single BSA?
These kind bike must fit in NYC for sure!!
Zipping around, stop and go with fixed bicycle.


P4173915.jpg
Old school distributor in it!
Actually it doesn't distribute anything though... cuz single cylinder.


P4183928.jpg
Gear drive is in this oil pump.
I really prefer these type of gear driven oil pump than plunger type like triumph.

P4063736.jpg
Guess what??


P4063737.jpg
This is kinda weak piece of 500cc motor.
Inside of kicker spindle, this piece gets worn out then kicker doesn't engage with gears...
$5 piece but you can't start bike...


P4173905.jpg
79 Nori's Triumph special got trouble with kicker too.
Clutch was always sticking each other.
then this thing happend.
Kicker can turn the gears but main shaft doesn't turn clutch center...
There are 2 things I could imagine.
1 this half moon key was broken
2 Main shaft was broken


P4173906.jpg
Fortunately his case was 1.
Save a lots of money instead of buying new mainshaft


P4173907.jpg
knock the half moon key off
Slot is OK


P4173922.jpg
Another $5 piece made you non start Triumph



Today's Hugh at 6th street
