the pucker point

masterofpuppets

Obey your master
When I worked at a local Corvette restoration shop for a summer back in high school, the shop foreman introduced me to this term. Any time you do any sort of modification, you get to the "pucker point". It's the point where you're halfway done with a mod and the thing you're working on is in pieces. Computers, cars, or in my case motorcycles.

I got to a point tonight where I was in the middle of putting new handlebars on where I just said "omg what the hell did I get myself into"



I got everything done and everything still works. It's just always cool to take a second in the middle of a project and look.

Anyone else have any pics from the middle of a 'work in progress'?

It was actually a huge pita but it had to be done before my race in september.
 
you should see my new supervisors bike, he got into a wreck about a month ago, he walked away with a broken ankle and forearm and a few scratches, but right now hes rebuilding it and hes got a band aid over the harley logo on the gas tank its pretty funny
 
I had one of those points when i was taking out the engine of my camaro. to put in a 383 stroker. wow that was fun. but in the middle when the engine was out i was like ahh crap now what!! lol
 
dont have pics, but my bike (pedal) is at its "pucker point" i just welded (with dads help) handlebars onto the frame and now trying to put gears, tires, rims, tubes, derailers,and a kickstand..oh and pedals

I hate engine swaps. A friend of mine was swapping out his 1130 to a 1250 in his VROD and I went over to help him out.....seeing his bike without a motor freaked me out.
