I have to say I have not had time to blog this year. By far this has been the busiest year of my life. I ran crews 7 days a week all summer, rain or shine. We finished some awesome projects including one with a 85' artificial river bed that starts with a waterfall and runs under an arched bridge before going around an island. Hopefully there will be more projects next year that will keep us busy. I do plan on taking a less active role in the field and staying around the office more. I'm sure my wife will appreciate it and my keepyourmotorrunnin customers will like it too. I want to thank all of you for your cycle business this year and hope to continue establishing lasting relationships for years to come. We didn't have time to take on many polishing customers this year but hopefully we can add another person to the team to handle overflow. Mike, I know you're probably reading this and cussing me for not getting that bike to you in Florida.
This year we moved the landscaping business to a new commercial location and hope to move the bike business this coming year. We will keep you updated on that and hope to see many of you this coming year at the track where we are going to sponsor one our own bikes with me riding it. That is the pic above.
This is the 72 Husqvarna CR 250 Mikkola race replica i picked up last year. Parts have finally started to come in to get this ready for summer vintage motocrossing. I got it running and gave it a good ride before pulling it into the shop for tear down. The engine will go to Forrest Stahl, renowned Husky mechanic, for freshening up while I go thru everything else. The factory alloy fenders are coming off. I have some vintage plastics to go back on. I'll have the forks reworked and valved properly too. I also have another set of period Akronts that I am re lacing with some stainless spokes. I also picked up a factory chrome tank to run on it instead of this big honking desert tank.
I picked up another plow truck this year. So far it has been a mild year with mostly salting but we have a good sized storm coming in tomorrow night so maybe I'll have a chance to scrape some of the paint the new plow.
My kid wants to do a minibike trike or a minibike with a side car. We started on it last night and hope to have it running by mid february, depending on weather of course.
I'm sure there is more I could say but time escapes me and I need to go to the shop. Take care and h
