yeah, not sure how much "diggin" I'm gonna be able to around the teeth...it's a little soft in there & I already knocked one loose when I was chiseling around in there & I gotta get some glue in there so it doesn't come out.

ok...pushed the nose in, rounded the mouth area up a bit, and gouged the chin up a bit. Taking this one up the bar tonight for some eye / mask work. I'm gonna have to glue one of the lower teeth & let that dry before I do anything else to his "purty mouth"...



and here are my latest old bike scores. I traded a few tikis today to my old-bike-guru buddy for some stuff & some work, so I have a few new projects "on the bench":

60's Hawthore, cut & stretched 3 or 4 inches. Needs the welds cleaned up with the grinder, and then some huge ape-hangers & big whitewalls.....future bar-hopper for sure...



'73 Schwinn Varsity, the "Juiced Schwinn", former 10 speed, now a single speed conversion, going to make a really fast, rat-style road bike with white seat, tir, & grip tape when it's done.



60's Dunelt 10 speed "the poor man's pashley" stripping it to the frame, converting to single speed & will get black powder coat, cream tires, and brown leather seat & grips. Basically making a clone of the Pashey Guv'nor (which cost like $1600 new).

carving at the bar is a good thing because, well, other than the fact that there's beer and chicks there, I can't be lazy and use any power tools, so I'm just kinda stranded there with my chisels and I have to just "work it out" with blades. And I really enjoy just doing that.

I've realized for quite some time now that blades are the "enlightened path", but power tools are like a really hot, slutty ex-girlfriend who booty-calls you after 11 when she knows you're just getting home from the pub....hard to resist when you're feeling lazy and want some instant gratification....

anyway, it's 12:30am and I'm not even close to being tired. I think I'll ride my bike up to the citgo and get a few toasted almond popsickles & watch ANCIENT ALIENS reruns (yeah, the flight attendant / new chick has already broken camp & left the building. bummer, kinda like her.)

LOL at the comparison of power tools to sluts...love it.

That last pic really shows just how large this piece is...didn't realize it was that big. Looks great.

Oh and WTF is a toasted almond popsicle?
