The lovely Pandora and I went for an evening ride on this overcast and warm Ventura day. Soft clouds make for great photos, it’s a giant softbox in the sky dampening and washing all the sun around.

Took the Monster out in my new home base town of Ventura for the first time today to run some errands, made a pit stop at Surfer’s Point to check out the ocean. Why? Because I can!

The majorest of major Monster Project updates… the build’s finished. I suppose to say the bike named Pandora’s Box is complete seems pretty oxymoronic, and let’s be real… it really is.

Already on the list… moving rear set positioning, angles of the clip on bars, and likely rejetting the carbs. Pandora and I took our first ride today in over two years- somewhat short for testing purposes. From the City Heights… Continue Reading »
She’s gonna be a beauty. More photos from putting the first bit of her back together soon. The little scissor marks and arrows are where the frame is chopped and the seat is getting chopped to match. [ more from the Monster Project ]
