I enjoy other motorized things besides motorcycles! We are working on our 1972 Glasspar Cutlas 1600 right now, it's been nelgected for over a decade, and we found it for $300 with a seized motor and a rotten floor. Ended up buying another boat for the motor, cause it was cheaper than actually buying just a new motor! Here's a few pics, one from the original manual, which we got two copies of. The bottom one is to show required boating style on our vessel. It's called Yellow Fever. Pretty rare and awesome.

Holiday Cycles XS650 Twins

These things are fucking beauts. I get the pleasure of watching Jared build all his bikes as we are in the same building and my shop has a window looking into his shop. It's a nice view. Contrary to what most people think, the seat on the first xs is (well, they both are) made out of vinyl. So it goes to show that vinyl does get a nice patina, that is if you ride the shit out of your bike! Photos by Scott of The Tarantulas.

R. Scott Elders Rusty Rocket

This one appeared on Bikeexif awhile back. Seat, tank strap and chin pad made by me out of recycled leather.

The Tarantulas Smooth Criminal

For this one I cut down a crappy ol' stock seat and re-covered. This bike is drool worthy for sure!

Things I find that I like, sometimes on the interweb, most of the time in real life... Tiger cub, fucking classic.
Jawa, need I say more?
