Poking out

A little R&D work from LoS.  We have been working on a few things here and something awesome finally arrived! This a custom built CNC spacer for the ATR hub. Perfect for 4″ offset wheels and custom lug pattern.

From CAD to finish product!

Draft design in inventor.

Be brought this over to our buddy in Adaptec speedware. They do all sorts of custom made spacers for all the hella flush cars and trucks. Here is the out come….

I wonder what rim will get mounted on this spacer?

Seamless Affair

Finally got my parts back from A&L body shop. Anthony does some amazing work and comes highly recommended when it comes to any kind of automotive body & paint work.  Here is a little example of what hes done for me so far.

Rewelded all the seams before minimal bond work to get that seamless look or shaved appeal.

3 stage paint with bluish pearl…

Color shift due to pearl and cross lighting.

Now that i got all of the parts back from A&L, its time to put this bike into motion!

8000 miles away

LoS is back in Asia again. This time we had goals to check out a few shops and pick up some goodies! During my visit to Taiwan the capital of scooter city, I planned a visit to a few shops to check out whats the latest and greatest in Taiwan.

Checked out a local performance shop that was close to my work. All i have to say was drool! Its like a kid in a candy store. Everything from brakes to suspension was hanging or laying on the floor.  Check out some of the pics during the trip.
