happy halloween

tweekers rule!

picked this pile up from some old tweeker relative of a friend. ok, maybe he's not a tweeker but he probably was at some time. this stuff was in the back at the bottom of a storage unit under a bunch of crap that wasn't packed in anything but blankets and crappy boxes. what a mess to get it all out. was worth it cuz tweeker shit is cheap.
mid to late 60's triumph 500 partially dis assembled
67 triumph 650 motor, spare cylinder head with broke fin. i think part of it is chromed.
bunch of spare parts for both motors and some random bits and wiring
exhaust pipes and muffler
large peanut tank w/cool glitter green paint job. little dented but that don't matter
68 or 69 triumph tank
biker jacket- too big for me but mostly good condition size 40. anybody want it?


found this sweet gem on the side of the road the other day. i had to jump out and save it. bell helmet, its all jacked up but it looks cool.

leather cases

i'm making some leather cases. cell phones and knives- with and without belt loops. no designs or artwork on these cause i'm still figuring out how to make sure things fit tight.

leather keychains

so, i made these larger keychains for a couple friends. 2 sided, hand tooled and hand sewn. i like using the grommet for these so that they sit the same as your keys instead of all bulky and perpendicular to your key stack

san jose international airport terminal fish tank stand

so, i helped a friend fabricate and install this stainless steel fish tank stand for the new san jose international airport terminal that just got remodeled and re-opened. the tank is 100+ gallons, has 4 cameras underwater to take photo and video of people looking at fish, then replay photos/video on the 6 video monitors that are also underwater. it is near terminal 25 and 26 if you fly into or out of san jose. mad props to every body that made this happen
