A Go-Go Designs is now up and running at 5040 SE Milwaukie with a full lineup of textile fabrication, repair, and and modification equipment for working on riding gear and luggage, messenger bags and other personal luggage, full steel fabrication and coatings facilities for custom racks and accessories, and everything in-between. Doing some mechanical work but more focused on developing and building the machines for the sheetmetal and fiberglass work of custom motorcycle body parts; I am currently fabricating a reciprocating sandbag hammer and rough version of an english wheel for a steel cafe racer rear cowl, seat pan, and conical false gas tank extension hidden compartment for electronics. For the project hotline, PM me for the phone number. And to browse the handmade fashion acessories and luggage as it apears in my online store, go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/aGoGoDesigns .

This just in: Also in the works is a series of small, simple, zippered pouch bags I can make a lot of out of little material with a Japanese flag or other memorial screenprinted images on them to sell for the relief effort. Accepting donations of zippers and nylon or heavy canvas to construct these. This is my charitable donation plan of my time, labor, and materials for the people of Japan and the earthquake relief effort, which I still know little about other than that is is serious. These will be for sale soon... I hope to make 1000... sort of a paper crane effort... contact me if you want to help.

We'll see you soon with those projects.

And Road Rash, come get your damn tank bag, it's stinking up my studio and you won't answer my calls.

Tunnel Rat needed - ducts

Tunnel Rat needed - ducts

I need someone to check and seal (if needed) the ducts under my house. Its a crawlspace not a basement or i would do it myself. I'm scared of dirt and spiders.

Had the ducts cleaned and I think they may have created a couple leaks. I believe it is all flex tube ducting.

Pm or email me.

Cash or barter or combo is fine with me. I have a couple things that someone might like to have.

I need to get this done ASAP.

thanks

THIS JUST IN:
www.a-go-go-designs.com
and
www.agogodesigns.etsy.com
are now up and running. We offer custom bag design, manufacturing, and heavy duty fabric and leather repair in Portland, Oregon at our shop in the Watershed industrial arts center at 5040 SE Milwaukie.

Recent achievements are the unveiling of a new line of messenger bags in two basic designs and four basic sizes, or scale the designs to your personal specifications, add, subtract, or design and edit your own features. Prices range from $125- $250 depending on size, style, and features. The three categories available are basic stock bags, ones customized and specially designed by myself, and bags to your own specs to be designed and built. A special request form with blueprints for doing so will soon be available on the new site.

Ideas and suggestions are always welcome as the product line evolves according to individual demands and refinements at the drawing board. The company is committed to constant evolution coupled with lifetime durability and style equally in mind.

We plan on releasing a line of panniers, tank, and tailbags suitable for both bicycle and motorcycle use. A wealth of innovations and customizable graphics, prints, colors, and closure options will be available at competitive, affordable prices. We barter with customers and do trades for assets, and are developing advertising agreements with individuals across the country. This will be a trade system based on referral sales made through business card distribution. Each sale originating from number-coded business cards distributed to loaner bag wearers will equate to a percentage of that sale going towards their bag ownership over a year or so. Payment plans will be made available. Eventually, we will have locations in Shreveport, LA and Chapel Hill, NC.

Things we're currently actively seeking to barter for:
-welding, mechanical, and metal working tools, machines, and parts.
-raw materials and parts from steel stock to truck tarp and cordura nylon to ball bearings and junk motorcycle frames: make us an offer!
-fixer-upper two-wheeled vehicles.
-Car seatbelts (especially 80's-90's GM), webbing, hardware, old backpacks and bags made with any of these materials.
-screenprinting equipment and supplies.

Finally, all our merchandise carries a lifetime guarantee with myself personally. I've dedicated my life to the custom crafting and repair of all durable goods. You will forever have credit with me for threadfastness and structural integrity of everything I make, which is rigorously tested. Fabric wear-through and normal wear and tear are of course negotiable and usually not covered. I want everyone to be more than satisfied with their stuff.

Upcoming merchandise in addition to the current line of silkscreened patches, bags, hats, belts, wallets, clothing, and custom metal fixtures and sculpture, are as follows:

Screenprinting Equipment:
-presses, exposure tables, modular spray booths,screen frame restretching service, custom screens and canvases of all shapes and sizes from reclaimed and new soft hardwoods.

Coffee Equimpent
:

custom lathe turned tampers from billet and cast aluminum, nylon, resin, hardwood, and seasoned cast iron
-cast aluminum dosers and coffe bean grinder hoppers from hand blown glass, cast aluminum, copper, brass, sheet aluminum and stainless steel
-custom steam pitchers, espresso machine bodies,naked portafilter modifications, and a line of espresso machines eventually. Food and boiler welder certifications are in the works now.
-custom coffee counter interior design from sculptural and structural mild steel, cast aluminum, brass, reclaimed automotive parts, brass, copper, leather, and stainless steel.

This company consists of many partners in areas ranging from IT and web development to landscaping, stone and tree work, to concrete, to industrial food processing equipment technicians and millwrights. I have a strong referrals network of highly specialized, educated, and self-taught professional artisans and engineers. Together, we are ready to coordinate any project utilizing any elements of the industrial arts and engineering. We look forward to working with you!

Thumb 29th BIGFOOT RENDEZVOUS

Thought I'd throw this in here. The BIGFOOT Sidecar Club is holding it's 29th annual BIGFOOT RENDEZVOUS in Midway BC July 7-10. It is located in some awesome riding country just on the border above Republic WA. The site is on the Kettle River with lots of room for the kids to run and swim if supervised. Includes camping, games/skill testing for brave sidecar pilots, Sat. dinner and prize presentations and 50/50 draw. Probably a lot of other stuff but as usual still working on the details. Everybody with an interest in sidecars is welcome. Don't care if you come in a mini van either. For now I can be PM'd for more info. or talk to me at Lake Chelan. Barry

My dog says I should mention that yours are welcome too.

Suspension Services

Konflict Motorsports & Suspension

*****Suspension Service Special*****

Konflict Motorsports is offering up yet another suspension service special. Most off-road bikes manufactures recommend having your suspension serviced every 60 hours. In today's economy, and most riders in general overlook having their suspension serviced, when in fact a lot of the harshness transmitted to the rider is in reality due to the breaking down of the fluid, bushings, or stiction of the seals. Over the past year doing suspension in the Pacific Northwest it has been alarming the number of bikes I have come across with a large amount of dirt, water, etc. in the fluid. This leads to the deterioration of bushings, which in turn leads to a harsh ride for the rider.
We are offering a special on services front and rear for $120.00 per end, brought to us off the bike. This price covers labor, and fluid only. Wear parts will be priced per bike.
Please contact Alex@konflictmotorsports.com to take advantage of our special.
