Triumph T120R Photoshoot 

Our friend and professional photographer, Douglas Saylor, of dougsaylor.smugmug.com, came over to shoot the custom Triumph we built.  Doug did an amazing job capturing all the details of the bike under non-ideal conditions and the shots came out spectacular.  Thank you Doug for the photos and Paul Gresovic for bringing the bike over in one piece, he puts the miles down on the Triumph, so forgive some imperfections.

Custom Vehicle Support Stands

These custom stands are one of the safest ways to support your vehicle off the ground while keeping the suspenision loaded.  The stands are able to support your vehicle and slide across the floor while cycling an air bagged suspension system to dial in the sensors for ride height.  The stands are made from 1/4" waterjet cut hot rolled steel plate and come with four different bolt patterns cut into each one.  They come in standard or metric and four, five or six lug, your choice.  I ship the stands flat to save on shipping cost and are easily assembled on a flat surface as they have locator tabs built in for alignment before welding.  Either the TIG or MIG process is adequate for assembly.  Cost is $400 per pair or $750 for a full set of four, prices do not include shipping so contact us for a quote.

1964 Jaguar Series I E-Type Roadster

For the last six months I have taken this 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster from a complete rusted out hulk to what you see here. After getting the bonnet straightened and aligned, doors fitted and leading all of the factory seams I got all of the gaps set and the car off to bodywork and paint.

1961 VW Single Cab Shop Truck

We have been looking through some of our old photos and came across these of our old shop truck.  This VW Single Cab was a 1961 model which is the last year for bullet turn signals and small snowflake tail lights. It had a 2-litre stroker motor with dual Dellorto 45 carbs, type 3 straight axle conversion with adjustable spring plates, Sway-A-Way torsion bars, super diff type-3 transmission with 3:88 gear, 5 inch narrowed beam, drop spindles, front wilwood disc brakes and a good bit of other perfromance modifications.  The single cab ran and drove spectacular, it would light up the tires with just a push of the throttle and cruise at 70mph on the highway with ease.  Although we really miss this truck we also remember it being a really tight fit in the cab with anyone over 6 foot tall and it was a sweat box during the summers with limited air flow.  Sometimes it is better to let them go and remember the good times that we had when it was still around.

Custom Harley Sportster

We recently picked up a '05 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 as a shop project and have been making some good progress.  We started by relacing the wheels with stainless spokes after having the rims powdercoated and the hubs anodized black.  Then we bolted on a set of full floating rotors for increased stopping power and picked up a custom made set of bars that adorn the modified and powdercoated triple trees.  The bars are too curved to use risers so custom bungs were coped and TIG welded to the new bars.
