State of the Onion.

There's exciting shit goin' down, but I haven't slept much, and my enthusiasm is severely lacking at the moment.
So here's the haps, delivered as dry and free-of-flair as I can muster;

- Sean's got the new inventory software, and he's keepin' steady pace at gettin' the salvage inventory up... if you need parts right now, your best bet is to contact him via email for a while... he's been locking the doors to keep the lurkers out --- no time to waste when you're makin' shit happen.  Need a CDI box for some obscure mid-80's Japanese pile of shit that you're restoring for your girlfriends brother?  We've probably got it.

- Grim Cycle Salvage T's are on the way --- I'll have 'em laid out and to the printer by Monday.  You wanna get into these... the new Grim Cycle Salvage logo is fucking sick, brought to you by our favorite designer/genius/user-of-fancy-words, Jory Dayne Hemmelgarn.

- Grim should officially be a dealer for a few new brands within the next week or so... let us know what new shit you need.  We'll get it.  And then we'll take your money.  Remember, we're more than another stinky junkyard - we're also fucking awesome.

And, with all that said, we've got another Bike Night under the belt... here comes The Boring Report on this one;

I can't show too much from Sean's Super Mega Secret Bobber project... but he did make some headway on splittin' my old 3 gallon Sporty tank.  Recycling at it's finest... damn thing's been kickin' around for at least 6 years or so now.  I'm amazed it's not dented to shit.

And on the other side of the shop, I spent my time drinkin' Red Stripe and tap-tap-tappin' out the lumps on my narrowed 2 gallon project.  She's gettin' close.

Once I got 'er tapped out, Sean laid down some tacks to hold my shit together...

...and sometime around 2am we got the flat base tacked on, too.  I love that totally flat base...

So Sean's goin' AWOL for the weekend.  Somethin' about driving to Madagascar to pick up a foot stool.  Seems worthless to me, but what do I know.  We'll see ya' Monday, fuckers.  And buck the fuck up, campers.

The Return of Bike Night.

So bike night is once again underway.
For a while there it was pretty much dead.  Everybody was too busy tryin' to feed their families.
But the families are fed for a minute.
So the bikes that matter are finally back on the lifts.
Last night's episode saw my narrowed Sporty tank project makin' a little headway, and Sean's super top-secret oil bag mounts milked a little attention, too...
More to come.
Bookmark the blog --- this shit's way easier to update than a real site.

Out the fuckin' gates.

Yeah, another fuckin' blog.
This one will be about Grim Metal Worx/Grim Cycle Salvage.  
We're Utah's largest motorcycle salvage yard, we sell used, new, Japanese and American.
And we build the coolest motorcycles you've never heard of.  But you'll probably never own one, for two reasons:
A) You probably don't want to pay us.
B) We pretty much only build our own shit, because customers are a pain in the ass.
You won't find us on the Discovery Channel, and we don't have our own pro-model shoes.
Bookmark us.
Check back sometimes... maybe we'll actually update this shit.
