Speed Club Garage

Speed Club Garage last year. Come a long way since then. More of everything. Heat, sheet rock, insulation and bikes. Im thinking about putting a hammock in the corner these days. Fuck a bed.

Come to Daddy!

Been holding out for a long time on getting a lathe but its finally time to bring it on home. I’ve got the garage insulation, sheet rock and heating in the mix so that my equipment doesnt just waste away. This lather is gonna come in real handy with my old printing equipment too. I cant count how many times I’ve had to call in a last minute favor to get something milled, drilled or lathed to get one of the presses back up and running. Dig it. Real pics coming soon. By the way… check out the South Bend site. Tons of really great information to keep folks on track. Knucklebusterinc has a bunch of great posts on the subject too.

Gotta love eBay

Gotta love that eBay. Picked up this Wagner style brake setup complete with a ratchet top mounting bracket. It’s even got the switch and line still attached. All in perfect working order for $15 bucks. Sure beats $65+ for something new. It’s gonna be a busy winter in the Speed Club garage. 3 cycle builds lined up and even including a little propane heat action!

CHOPOUT 2010 Details

CHOPOUT 2010 – presented by

We’re getting the hell out of town for one last ride for the season on September 18 and 19th. This is a Saturday and Sunday, 300 mile round trip and you’re invited. We’re leaving after breakfast and heading east into WI. Camp out. Next day cruise back west into MN and then south to the Twin Cities. This is a bring-your-own-shit, ride and camp out thing. Contact Speed Club INC for all the ride details including map, camp destination and specifics on the route.

Dont forget your:
sleeping bag
extra socks
break down back-up plan

How Much: $10-20/per person, per night for camp site. You get a spot on the grassy knoll next to the second gunman. There’s a lake and toilets and the lodge with grub, beer and AC/Heat depending on the weather. Well worth the minimal cash so don’t be a tight ass.

What to do: Absolutely nothing. There are a couple bars and gas stations for food and drink and there’s always good old Phipps. Make some friends, rest up, share some laughs, shit it in the woods.

Things you should know: The ride is open to anyone with the right attitude. No chase trucks, no banners, no products, no nothing. Just one last little adventure for the season. Food is on you. Yes, there are definitely bears and yes, they will come out looking for that cheese burger wrapper you left in the dirt next to your bike. SO… be smart and try not to get killed. It’s not a race. Have a fun time and enjoy the ride.
