Good Luck Tour Build Process.. Day 6 August 25 2016, 0 Comments

Day 6
Breakdown for Paint! Get all the pieces organized for paint. He is not going to powder coat this bike due to time. Powder coating is backed up about 3-4 weeks! We ain't got time for that.

Day 5 
Brady has the engine back out and all cleaned up, painted with new rings, new gaskets, valve adjustment, tight and right. The carbs have been gone through and cleared. Everything seems tight with the motor. You can see the full for building in the background.. Lite Beer!

After waiting for some parts...
Day 4 
Brady puts in the motor to see if the mono shock tab will fit. He did all the fab without the engine in which is the first time he has done it that way. Miraculously the mono shock tab cleared the carbs by about a 1/8". Everything looks nice and right. Welded in the mounts for the subtle under seat LED tail light as well. We also received all our Biltwell parts and gear today! So we will be able to move assembly with the correct parts.

Day 3
Finish all the welds on the rear sub frame and tank tabs. Get the mono shock installed! Hoping the mount will clear the engine. Put the tank on to get a feel for the lines.

Good Luck Tour Build
Day 2
Brady Young has the idea already in his head what he wants to do with this Honda CB550. It is a different kind of build, being that it is for him and not a client. This opens up all the possibilities to create whatever he wants and to think and move in a quick manner to solve challenges. Making everything really subtle and simplified is the overall goal. Stock modified would be the term. Fabrication of  the mono shock conversion and seat hoop is seen here. Working out all the angles and lines to flow together.


Good Luck Tour!! August 05 2016, 0 Comments

Our motorcycle builder Brady Young is building a CB550 to ride across the continental U.S. We will be documenting the build process and the trip. We are doing it on vintage brat/cafe's and we ride pretty scrappy. Mishaps and epic fails are all part of the fun as well as the epic get-away. Biltwell , Crawford Denim and Red Cloud Collective are helping us with gear to make this journey! The Seaweed & Gravel Denim line will also be launched during this epic adventure! Watch as we hit the road and visit our like minded shops along the way.
Build Process
Day One
Brady is set on doing the CB550 build in three weeks. The first thing he always does is cut the sub frame and tabs off. No messing about with this guy. Strip the excess immediately to see what the new lines will be. Keeping most of the stock frame is key though.
