large_hands_grant Have a grateful Memorial Day people although I think the majority of the people taking up space in this country don't know or care what the holiday is really about...I haven't been to Germany yet, but I've been to Hiroshima...thanks Grandpa and all veterans that have fought FOR us...rant over. 12h

large_hands_grant It's the little things in life like the hand oil pump on early motorcycles like my 1929 Harley JDH. For those that don't know, in really old bikes that don't have recirculating oil systems you have to manually put oil in the crank cases by doing this. About 1/3 of the left side tank is actually an oil tank that it draws from. Then you drain it all out at the end of the day.
When @bttw made these shortened hill climb style tanks he made sure all this would function and it makes me smile every time I fill the cases 🙂 #gainingknowledgethroughtotalloss #harleyjd #harleyjdh #pumpanddump

large_hands_grant Corvette summer has begun! I started it by driving the '67 to the shop today, lunch, and then driving it to Cooks on a motorcycle ride much to everyone else's chagrin. They didn't realize it's just as safe as a motorcycle with probably the same or better power to weight ratio, has the same number of gears as my shovelhead, makes lots of noise when you get on it, and I didn't have wear a helmet! #corvettesummer #1967corvette #bigblock #427ci #fourspeed #californiadreaming 2d

large_hands_grant Back on the 1929 Harley JDH 2-cam trying to see if I can get rid of the mid range hard acceleration stumble...it's driving me crazy! Gotta get it sorted because @the_harpoon and I might be hitting the road for the east coast @theraceofgentlemen next week and I'd really like to bring this thing with! #harleyjdh #harleyjd #trog #gainingknowlegethroughtotalloss 3d

large_hands_grant Had a great time again riding 585 miles Friday and Saturday on the once every other year Nash's Hell Ride. Orange County to Julian to Idylwilde to Pioneer town Friday and through Joshua Tree National Park to Bombay Beach to Salvation Mountain and back Saturday. Everything but the heat Saturday afternoon was awesome. @mindpill @boses @dynamitejoe @joeykerivan15 @bentheboog @freedomrider13 @markchoiniere @stevelknievel14 @jonty_ #ridemotorcycleshavefun 2w

large_hands_grant Ol' number 288 is about ready to hit the dirt! This little Harley sidevalve is a 55" stroker that after stripping all the stock junk off turned out pretty fun! Still need to play around with a few things like gearing but it's shaping up. Setup big boy style with dual 19" wheels, pogo seat, and stock 41-46 tanks. Team leader @mikedavis70 made me a believer in the 45's with his, gonna leave the heavy big twins on the street or occasional hillclimb. #racemotorcycleshavefun #handshiftracing #tankshiftracing #vivalaflathead 3w

large_hands_grant It's Saturday night and hopefully everyone is out having a swell time! Had some great sloppy joes at home listening to records and looking at one of what I believe is my favorite bikes! Knuckleheads will never be as cool as a JDH lower end with Peashooter heads converted to work together on Oscar Lenz's old hillclimber that looks like it's in a spaghetti frame with late DAH tanks. I gotta see this thing I person sometime, it's Ina museum in the Midwest as best I can find. #harleyjdh #harleytwocam #harleypeashooter #harleyhillclimber #acdchighwaytohell 3w

large_hands_grant Japanese National Treasure @gen_loveearart sat in the driver's seat of my 1967 Big Block Corvette and...well...his face says it all. Turns out the Japanese dream was the same as the american Dream, he always wanted a Harley FLH and a C2 Corvette. 4w

large_hands_grant Had a great time last night at the newly renovated and amazing @highlandparkbowl which is the old Mr T's Bowl for those that remember what dark dump that place was. @bobbygreendesign and his team spent over a year unearthing and restoring what was actually an amazing space once all the crap was gutted. I could watch the pin setting machines all night like a fire place... Thanks for the invite Bobby and a night of great food and drinks! If you're in Highland park (Los Angeles area) check this place out. 1mon
