    The Saginaw Powerbike-The one that brought me back.

    Haven't got into the engine yet. Inside of the tank is clean but the carb is fouled. (Gas has turned into varnish) It has good spark and good compression. Figure that's 2/3rds of the battle. :)

    1947 Saginaw Powerbike build.

    Bike is starting to shape up. I had to replace the neck cause it broke when tightening the new bars. Luckily I had an old 40's neck down in the basement.

    The Saginaw Powerbike-The one that brought me back.

    Since the bike now belongs to me, only thing left to do is figure out a treatment. I thought about a full resto but I'm missing a battery box and a few other hard to find items that I'm sure I won't find cheep. I've considered giving it a Military treatment like the Cushman airborne m53 but I...

    The antimope.

    Seems Like forever since I last visited the forum. With the launch of my company (Sinister Laboratories) Other than my daily ride I haven't had much time for bicycles.

    It's been a while.

    Well After a couple "did ya fall of the face of the planet?" emails I figured it was long over due for me to check in with my friends on R.R.B. Last year I launched a new company Sinister Laboratories. Props/sets/costuming and custom creations of all shapes and sizes. It's consumed my life and...
