Fighting that clutch basket nut. Gonna heat it up a little with the propane torch tomorrow and see what I can do. MFer.

Finished a lamp my girlfriend and I started before she left for deployment. Replete with a dead air plant and baby aloe that has to be watered with an eye dropper!

More mock-ups.




Fighting with the compensator sprocket nut. What could go wrong?




Ahah! Let's use some leverage. What's the closest thing to hand? Yup. Everyone should have a spare Suzuki SV650 swingarm laying around.







Now i just have to get a bearing puller to get that compensator extension off. Fun times.

The sporty has been languishing while I work on swapping a set of GSXR forks and another SV650 rear wheel on to my Triumph. I figured why not? The Ironhead will look good with it, so will Ted my Triumph.

Great thread! I particularly like the B&W pics....and the others as well. You could always take up professional photography if the other possibilities don't work out. Thanks for your service!
