Deep Six Cycles will have a table set up with our merch at the Harley Dealership this Friday. This is the last one of the year! We will have a small selection of Brass Pegs, Grips, Biltwell Helmets and those Flat fenders we sell the heck out of! Come check out my slowly rusting chopper in person and shoot the breeze with me!

I find myself shooting photos of things. Some of the time these things make it to instagram or various other forms of social media, often times they are posted one place and never make it to the blog. Here are a few photos from last week. I tend to take a lot of the shop stuff for granted just because I see it every day and never think to shoot it. There are probably a lot of missed opportunity's.
This clutter of the day is a bunch of material in different stages of machining, or just finished.
Here is the finished bore for a set of brass grips with a Joker Machine throttle tube being test fit. P.S. they run a bit small.
These would be our finished Brass Grips with the Joker Machine Throttle tube installed
Just an ole handle bare fixture.
Just the ole splitting of an ole handle bar fixture.

We wound up at a bbq at an old friends this weekend. When we went for a walk in the woods and we stumbled across some of this nearly forgotten stuff here! I can't seem to shake this mountain buggy from my mind!
My Uncle used to tell me about how he and his buddies cut down VW Bugs and modified them into buggys that would fit into the back of a pickup truck. This is one of the only examples I have actually ever seen. Though it seems to be "Thing" based and many states away from where he and his friends constructed theirs.
I think I am intrigued by this machine as much or more than my 2yr old son sitting in the cockpit. This simple creation speaks to me in a similar way as our choppers do. Its stripped down, and not very complicated but will excel in it's intended purpose. Similar to an old hot rod or real chopper. I think that is part of the appeal for me.
A poor old Chevy
I really really liked this old Dodge. It had a slant six in it with motor oil that appeared to be fairly fresh when it was parked! I really like this body style...
Yeah thats a 10' bed!
I need to find some one to trade parts for an old mini bike project for my son. He spent a lot of our time out there sitting on this mini bike.
You may have seen this little single cylinder Ducati around town. This thing has a ton of class. What a pretty motor!
