our friends darin and angelique foust got me on a list at rock of ages tattoo in south austin friday for a 13 tattoo. figured we would get in faster that way. we would have if this group of hipsters who got on the list too wouldnt have shown up 2 hours late and still got their spots in line back... but, we ended up having a fucking awesome time hangin out with some dudes from the kreatures c.c. and from the rumblers c.c. made a lot of new friends, drank some beer, and got a tattoo. sounds like a successful night to me! ended up getting a double whammy 13... jason voorhees mask, im a big horror fan and it was friday the 13 so it worked out both ways.
being that i'm a new father, i don't have much time for projects. part of me wants to sell the 26 because of lack of time and the other 99% says fuck that. i have huge plans for it, everyday i have ideas running through my head on paint ideas, how the frame will looks, wheel and tire combos... its like an endless pool of thought. my good friend jason thomas of thomas speed shop in farmington arkansas is in charge of the frame. i guess the rest will be up to me when he is done with that. im also trying to figure out what to do with my 81 kawi ltd 440. its a clean resto bike but its super grandpa'ish and id like to spruce it up a bit. work is going well, ive picked up a few shifts but its hard to get or ask for more with frankie around. dont want to put her in daycare at this age and my family is busy and i dont want to burden them with watching her all the time... if i could get a full schedule krystle could goto part and watch the tank. i guess there isnt much happening but a lot going on.
I'm an Austin transplant, been here with my wife for about 2 years, I'm a father of a fat faced, farty little girl named Frankie Rose. I have a long history as a classic VW mechanic but have recently started working on classic American iron and vintage motorcycles. I've owned several "ratty" vw's and a couple resto customs, I've owned a 49 Chevy Fleetline and restored a chop topped 65 Custom Cab Chevy P.U. I'm apart of a "social group" called the Austin MeatHeads, its alot of cool guys and girls with cool cars who meet up to enjoi meat products of various types. I plan on writing whatever interests me including, people, cars, bikes, food, and anything else. Hope I can keep it interesting for you.
