How to burn a lot of money fast

This is what happens when immature males, alcohol, and lighters share the same time and space.

What I do when nobody's looking

Been building a Yamaha chop over the last little while. Not putting too much time or money in this one because it's still an XS650. In spite of what is often posted on chopper sites, it will never do 120mph, ride two up up Mt. Everest or cure cancer. It's fun, kinda slow, pretty reliable, and weighs less than 350lbs. Possibly will be my son's bike if he stops growing.

What the pipes look like. Only got a few pix so far, but coming along.

Jap inline chop

Been working on another Jap chopper using the same kind of motor, but don't have pix up yet. These big bore 4s make good rides. Plenty of power, reliable and easy to source parts for. Suzuki-san never intended for this to happen to one of his motos.

I'm not scared

OK, maybe a little. Costa Rica, Christmas, 2009.
