So today started off with my normal “wake up whenever” routine where I ended up waking up at 10:30 instead of my normal 1-2:30pm crap. When I finally decided to drag myself out of bed my parents told me to get dressed so they could bring me down to Ikea so I could get my gift. I ended up getting a shelving unit so I can be a bit more organized with my record collection:

After getting home we went out to dinner with Mike D, his Dad, Jason, Bill, and McGoo at a local Mexican restaurant in downtown Elsinore. Mike D handed me a Chopper catalog mag from Spring 1973 that ended up having an ad for my frame I have, so that answered my question. It ends up being an AEE frame:

McGoo ran out to the car and came back in with a Biltwell prototype helmet that will come in handy whenever I get to the point of ACTUALLY riding this thing!!

Thanks for the Bday wishes from everyone and hope you folks have a decent Christmas.

D.R.I. put on by far the best show I've ever seen in my life this past Sunday. If you get the chance to see them GO!!

So today I spent about 3 hours outside finishing up all the sanding on the frame. There are still some areas that I need to touch up but other than that I should be starting the rear motor mounts in the next few days.

The few areas that are still cover with paint will get sand blasted whenever I get to that point of the project.

Anyone else planning on going? The show is at the House of Blues in West Hollywood not at the Key Club.

Got a little bit more clean up done on the frame today, I still have a good amount of sanding left (3-4 hours+) then I should be ready to start doing the rear motor mounts.

Had a great first time project fall into my lap about a week ago from Mike D. for free:

Engine is out of a 1973 CB750 and we're still trying to identify what type of frame it is. after seeing the state the bike was in to begin with magazine superstar Courtney Halowell was kind enough to donate a gastank to the build:

after removing the rear fender, tire and the engine I started to prep the frame for the new rear motor mounts and to clean the frame itself up.
