Making progress is a major motivator. I like to climb out of bed thinking the day is going to be exciting. This week I solved some issues, took my 1928 Shovelhead to Larry Settle for a look-over. We organized and shipped Hugh King’s Discovery Channel biker build-off bike to the Sturgis Museum.
We attempted to get two girders from Spitfire Motorcycles. We scored a few Antiques motorcycle parts from Bobby Stark’s lot.
I solved a minor issue with the Salt Torpedo and we are just a couple of weeks away from our first trial runs. I roughed out another Cantina Chapter.
JOIN BANDIT’S CANTINA—It’s cheap. It’s packed full of interesting and motivational content, projects, rides, you name it. We’re not trying to get on TV, we did that. We’re not trying to make a movie. I’ll leave that to the experts.
We just love women, the freedom to build anything we want and the freedom to ride forever. What could be better.
I’m working on Cantina Episode number 88 right now. Tons of content is archived every week.
Looks like my offer on a house in Deadwood found a dead end. Maybe it’s not meant to be. Then again, you never know.
Regarding The torpedo. I welded the helmet canopy in place and painted it. I drilled the holes for the fire suppression lines to the engine compartment.
Suddenly, my 1946 Indian Chief is hot property. We’ll see. And my VA effort seems to be moving forward.

You’ve seen “General Hospital”, read “Penthouse Letters”, and listened to “Only The Shadow Knows”, now comes “Bandit’s Cantina” to the internet. Too terrible to mention in public, this prophetic drama takes you behind the scenes of a scurvy Mexican bar in the worst barrio in Los Angeles, San Pedro. A big Spanish building, it has never stayed in business for more that a couple of months, yet since it became a biker bar, money laundering, meth lab, it has been in business more than five years. The San Pedro District Attorney’s office has been on the alert for any signs of mischief in order to eliminate the structure and all its inhabitants from the planet. They would prefer to bulldoze the stucco dumpster into the oily harbor.
From week to week we’ll do our damnest to bring you a couple of segments of Bandit’s Cantina from various members of the staff. Since menstrual cycles, whiskey binges, psycho women and bad drug may all influence various staff member at alternating times you may never know what twists and turns you may find in the cantina. So put on your flack vest and come on in.
Trying to Find the Way
I’ve made progress on the Salt Torpedo. I also reached out to Kendal Trailers regarding a trailer for this puppy. I want to start on another Cantina Episode.
I rode tested the new leather Bandit’s Dayroll and it worked like a champ to hold the shit and my tools.

The new Salt Torpedo body scoops came in, and Jeremiah figured out where they should be placed. I started to work on the body brackets this weekend, but I need another set of hands in the shop to drop the lid into place. I started to collect brackets.
