Carpenter's Motorcycle Exhibit - Pleasenton, KS

Pops and I were invited to check out the grand opening of the Carpenter's Motorcycle Exhibit and after party at the Motorcycle Works / Frankenstein Trikes shop this past Saturday. The exhibit was pretty dope. It was more like a bike show for Mr. Carpenter and Frank Pedersen from MC Works, but they have alotta cool shit and I was down to check it out. Got to talk motorcycles with some cool older friends of mine and my dad's and met some new ones. I asked a ton of questions and learned a lot. Here are some pics from the exhibit....

Ridin Motorcycles and Stuff....

    Had this lil stretched '77 CB550 in the shop recently. Kick only. Was runnin half assed, then not runnin at all. New fuel lines, filter, alotta new wiring, new ignition switch, and a Pamco electronic ignition and some tuning and tweaking and it's runnin like a top. Starts on two kicks cold, one kick hot. These Pamco folks seem to really stand behind their product and it's significantly cheaper than other options, like Cycle X. I get a text every now and again sayin how great it's runnin. I'm stoked! Might be in line to get some work done this winter.
    Rode in the Bikers for Babies ride a few weeks ago. They have all the festivities on the infield at the Kansas Speedway. In order to get to the infield, you have to ride through a tunnel that goes under the track. This is a good opportunity to make alotta noise, do a burnout, etc. I had my lady on the back, so I gave her a pat to hold on and pulled a wheelie! Damn near pulled the axle adjuster bolt through the adjuster plate at the end of the hollow swingarm! Made some new ones out of 1/4". That shouldn't be a problem anymore.

1970 Triumph Bonneville T120 - Sold

1970 Triumph Bonneville T120 - 650cc
I got this bike as is. I've started it, but have done nothing else to it.
Runs and rides, but would need a lil attention to be completely streetable, in my opinion.
Comes with a gasket set and repair manual.
Clean Missouri title, engine and frame numbers match.
Send questions, etc. to tjtommyryan@yahoo.com
