    Idle hands...

    ...are the Devils Workshop

    Since us Buellers are such a handy bunch What do you do in the garage when you aren't adding ground straps?

    I won a skateboard deck from a raffle, and I knew I would kill myself if I rode it so I got some OG Krypto wheels off ebay and welded up a little bench to sit on when I put on my shoes It has 200hp according to the amount of stickers I put on it (at 5hp a piece)

    Last year I found a big, warped, chunk of wood, used some scrap metal for legs, cut down a piece of glass I should have broken accidentally years ago, and made a 'river table'. I think it turned out sweet!

    Even though they are juvenile and crude, handmade stuff means the most to me

    What do you guys throw together for fun?

    I got these old girls running. Mostly for bike rally transportation. Added lights and back rests, of course some shade. "Golfkars" made in iowa. Best we can tell mid 60's. Both had flathead Kohler 8hp motors. One now has a 420cc harbor freight motor (13hp before the header and high flow intake)

    I take wire and make little rings out of them and then put them together to make things no one needs anymore...

    I used to call them something else before the wife started riding one.
