When I'm riding and something is loose I fix it rigth away. Got all the tools needed with me ever (have a riding spot 1 hour away from home and there is nothing worse then to arrive there and find out something is loose). To build up the bike completly I do it in my living room because it's way cleaner than the garage...
... or maybe they are just little kids bikes and we should grow up!        Paul Osika

My multiple personality garage at my shop, which is where I letter vehicles & pinstripe bikes, make crazy sh*te for my house, house my race cars, work on bikes, winter riding spot (the floor sucks) sometimes play music, etc. Don't have a space at home, just a shed that packed with crap and the wife probably wouldn't dig it if I was building bikes in the living room!

A goal is to build a building at home to move out of this space (which leaks like a sieve and has other issues, but is cheap and is all I've got at the moment) Looking to do a 30' X 40' two story w/ 14' garage door & a half loft and move my business there, but it's gonna be crazy expensive, like 20-25K easy with electric/ heat, permits, rezoning, etc. Will make for an awesome winter spot, though if I can get it done.

HOLLY WET DREAM BATMAN ! ! ! I dont even have a bike anymore, I sold it to move to Canada.


I tried to go to the comp in Toronto in March but I couldnt afford it. I even asked Lea in the USA if I could used her bike to have a play in the Jam if I could make it but she didnt go in the end.
"sh*t + talkers = stalkers lol"

Sold my bike to emigrate to Canada and still waiting for a Visa to work. Worst mistake EVER!

I'm a bike mechanic so just use my workshop at work, and my flat spot is right outside the door. Takes me less than 10 minutes to get there.
SOME PEOPLE DREAM OF SUCCESS ..... WHILE OTHERS WAKE UP EARLY AND SIMPLY GO FOR A RIDE
