two-faced people and builders without frame jigs

I really love you guys. No, I’m not saying that because I’m drunk. Okay, maybe I am but give me a break because I’m meeting some great builders and parts makers and because I can see the future, I can see that it’s yours for the taking. It’s the underground metric revolution, motherf***ers. It’s cheap, simple, beautiful and honest.

How many miles per gallon does a hotrod XS650 get? Forty? Fifty? Depends on your wrenching capabilities but man, our state governments ought to give dudes riding these bikes a tax exemption for being efficient.

One douche in a four-wheeler yapping on his cell phone: 10 to 25 mpg.

Too bad it was built without a frame jig. Wonder how it steers….

Stupid beer. Now give me a hug. Awwww………

Today we got a new member. Matt is in Austin and is a pretty wicked manipulator of leather. He has created hand-tooled saddles, grips, b**ch pads and more.

Matt is good at the leather stuff and I’m happy to profile him here on bikerMetric. Just don’t ask him to see if your handlebars are straight
