Motorcycle Mating in the wild kingdom

As you can see below, the engine is almost ready to mate with the frame.

After that, I only have all of the rest of the bike to put together!

Kegerator continues!

In my quest for beer-on-tap 24-7 I have been building a kegerator for my house. Soon I discovered I needed a drip tray to keep the floor from rotting through (did someone say firepole?!?!) Not wanting to pay almost $60 for one like this one I set out to make one. I found a aluminum tray from a toaster, and a cheap metal box from target. Put them together, and we’re off to the races! These are the two pieces.

This is the toaster tray cut up but not bent

This is the tray cut, bent, and dropped into the box. I’m pretty happy, considering it cost $1.68

This is my attempt at making a counterfeit Sub Zero fridge. Yes that’s right! I took an angle grinder to the fridge! Now it’s bare metal! We’ll have to see how long the well oiled metal can resist rusting, and how long I can resist not steel wool-ing it to get the rust off. We’ll have to see about a lot of things. Until then I have 1/2 of a sub zero kegerator!

Fire in the hole!

My buddy Jay and I put together about 5 gallons of what-is-soon-to-be red ale.

Here’s a couple pictures of the process

Tools ‘o’ the trade

Chillin out the load in the bathtub. This took at least an hour to get down to the pitching temperature. I need an immersion chiller REALLY BADLY
