      No! You may not shoot the go carts. Go do that shit outside. Go to the highway if you want moving targets. This is a serious business here yo.

        Man this train just keeps on rolling. The new space will take us all of 12 months if not more to get ready to move into. One of the buildings I had my eyes on for the machine shop burned to the ground last month (arson of sorts, I guess - don't really know). Since it's still in escrow/discovery that's actually good news for us as the structure was marginal at best.

        2 new clients have come to us and both need us to have more room soon, so looks like we'll be pushing the neighbors out at our current spot and tripling the current space in the meantime (providing we're awarded the contracts, and I suspect that we will get them both).

        My Hawk just sits. I moved it out of the way to reorganize the garage yesterday and then rolled it back and covered it up again. The ember still glows deep inside but I have no passion for it at the moment. Truth is I've been playing with a little car project and it has been good to rekindle those spirits too.

        Hope all is well here...now I need to wrap my head around CAD for CNC folding and sheet metal processes. Coffee is on!

                  Dekwan dropped off some forks for work here in July...I don't even remember what needed to be done but I did remember where they were last week.

                  So...possibly not...possibly? Depends on the work you need done.

                    So the Hiatus continues, but the passion slowly returns. One of the items I had my mind deep into was side stands. Recent threads elsewhere are helping to reignite that fire, and I hope to explore them again soon. My personal build (Hiatus) needs one anyway...so maybe this will be the kindling that gets me going sooner than later.

                    Here's where I left off...

                      As I have the 3D printed version, I can tell you that it’ll be damn sexy when done.

                      I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

                        I want the side stand. Actually, I'd love a larger foot because I find myself stopping on gravel or dirt from time to time. Adjustable length? Custom length for a Fox shock? Let us know and we will send money.

                          ricksax i used to carry a plastic kickstand puck ( about the same diameter but maybe 1/4" tall) in my riding gear pocket for when it was needed. Worked on soft dirt / grass after a big rain / gravel / hot tarmac, etc. Did a quick google and some types even attach to the foot.

                                I'm pretty sure there is an interest thread on this very piece and I'm pretty sure I was in line for it! So, yeah the interest is there! Get to it!!

                                I can see it now. I'll be at a motorcycle show, somebody will stop and look at my Hawk. They'll talk all about the cool custom paint job, the Ducati parts schmoozed on, and all the non-Hawk stuff, Then, I'll say but check out my f'n sweet kickstand and he'll be like "whoa"!!!
