The End of Winter | Kenso/Fishtown
Well guys, we’ve had all winter to get something done, except for Ed who gets to enjoy summer back to back to back. The warm weather signals us to make those final adjustments and go for a test ride.
Stopped by Brian’s house Saturday for some cold beers and a lesson on the hybrid tacos of Southern Texas. Brian was dusting off the ol’ 63 Pan and rewiring the brake switch. Needless to say, we wrapped up there, bought a case of Genesse and ate tacos for dinner.
After a day of piecing the 500/4 motor together, a few of us arrived just in time to watch Jason McElroy fuel up his freshly built BSA and make a couple dozen flybys.

End of the weekend and I have a near finished motor and freshly painted helmet. Starting ‘er up tonight.
As much as I fucking hate Winter, if it didn’t keep me off the bike as much as it did, I’d never get any work done.
