Does surviving a lava flow and making a living count as a hobbies? Right now, I just got my welders back on line after over a year down, couldn't find a person to fix them on the island, couldn't afford new equipment. So, building a new shop is first, it is a hobbies I suppose- a place to do hobby's at least! I build Jeeps, getting my V65 back on it's feet, have two project bikes- a 77 GL and a 85 Ducati Pantah 650sl. Building "wood gasifiers" for off grid living, and learning to compress the gas. Horses- I have 12, Definitely a hobby, as I don't make any money off them!

Pahoa, Hawaii is my new hom
I am working hard to save up the shipping money to get my shop opened here in Hawaii
I hate electrical stuff.

Been working on Darrell Waltrip's 1989 World 600 winning Tide Lumina for the last month or two. This also the same car that Crusty Wallace punted out of the way to win The Winston the week before the World 600. Got a little carried away with some of the detailing like the AN hose and fittings for the rear gear and cooler. Did the same for the dry sump system on the motor too!!!

Up until my KZ440 and my sons KZ500 came into my life I made Jewelry/Keepsake boxes. That was actually a hobby that paid for itself. Someday I will get back into it when the bikes move to the other side of the garage.

Thanks. I try my best on them. Never completely happy with them but I must be doing something right as they sell pretty well.

Just finished my latest nostalgia build, the 1957 release by Adams of the Honest John atomic rocket and launcher. This kit was one of the very first models I can remember building back around 1961 or so!!! Bet there are a few of you out there that built this very same model kit back in those days too!!!!

Can't ride any of my bikes anymore, and I can no longer afford to build anymore more bikes. So this is the only thing that keeps me from going insane!!!!!
