too proud to beg?



 Zazzle Christmas Tee

I have my online stores and do the art walks in a effort to supplement my $2,000 a month disability income. Yes, I pay to live here, and I buy food and cook and clean. Yes, I took my Dad to physical therapy, 3 days a week, helped him shit and shower, get dressed, cooked meals for them and let her drop him off at my houses or she could have time off. All while dealing with and healing from multiple surgeries. I don't beg for handouts, I try to work. Chri

stmas and Hannukah are coming fast, please bite the bullet and shop in one of my stores, I get a small commission. I can make you something custom if you want. But that has to add the the cost and I realize $75 for art and another $20-25 for the item is a lot but it's one of a kind.
Zazzle makes more than shirts, they make all kinds of cool stuff, including shoes and iPad cases, greeting cards etc.. If you see art on a shirt but want greeting cards, just ask, I can fix that easy at no extra cost. Please follow the link and do some shopping. That little star at the end of my link tell them that I sent you and they pay me and extra 5%, they have holiday sales so watch for the sales. I have the Vida store and the ETSY store too.
I feel like I'm begging,mix that's what it takes then fine. I've been on disability since 1996.

I started ordering parts for this bike it will have a 36v 1000 watt electric motor,
 disc brakes, and a springer front end. This will be my first retrofit. I ordered enough
batteries for my second build. I think a vintage folding bike might be next.

The are vinyl print on acrylic framed in a shadow box with LEDs. It would be great to have them on a timer, they'd make an awesome night light.

Electric Bike Service and Sales

My buddy and half the team that built my awesome electric bike, has opened his own shop. He builds, repairs and customizes bikes and other light electric vehicles, he has a small inventory of used and custom eBikes and some parts ready to become custom eBikes. Hit him up, he might even make arrangements to teach. Here's a link to his YouTube Channel Christopher Viers

He's currently working on a Festival eBike, it will have blenders, a fridge and umbrella. 
He's good with a hammer too, if you need a handyman ;0)

Light Me Up!
Getting Ready for Fullerton Art Walk in August

I got these printed on Vinyl and mounted to Acrylic and then I framed them in these Shadow Box Frames. Trevor at One Day Signs in Anaheim did a great job. The evil plan is to light them up with LED's. They have a strung set that runs for 4 hours, since you don't want them running all day, or maybe a timer. LED's burn very little electricity and last a long long time.


I also had some more Glicee Prints made and they came out beautiful! Thanks again to Trevor at One Day Signs.

I want to try printing direct to Acrylic and print Direct to Glass. There are other things too, like wood, tile, stone. Eventually I will need to update my Zazzle Store with some of these new images I have been creating.

eBike News: 

UPGRADE: Parts have started to arrive. The controller arrived and will go in soon. The risers are wrong so I need to send those back. I just ordered some chrome 2" extensions, they are harder to find than you think, ordering them is hard without experience, oh well. I am not making an Rolling Easter Egg, I just want it to ride comfortably. Hopefully the extensions will do that. The new handle bars are perfect. The basket for the dog to ride in seems to be good too. I am also researching suspension seat posts or maybe a bent post. The ride geometry is off, so adjusting the bars and seat is the way to make it the most comfortable.

RETROFIT: The seat post arrived, Mike DiCicco is helping me fix the new seat post, it's something custom made for a vintage bike, because the parts aren't available. We had to modify something that was just a little off size. Nice to have friends with skills. Thanks Mike. I think I found the parts needed for the Disc Brakes and I have a few ideas for making or repurposing something for the battery box. I will get some springer forks. The controller will come off of the bike I am upgrading.


I took the train to see my daughter graduate and that went awesome. So I have decided to take the train to Downtown LA once a month to see my Doctors at the Hemophilia Treatment Center. The first time took a few phone calls and research on the web because you need MetroLink and MetroRail to get there and that can be confusing. I wrote it all on paper and people are friendly if you feel lost, ask anyone. The last trip I tried using a app and it showed me all the times for all the transfers, so that was awesome. Except I got spun around a got nervous and lost some time getting on and off a few times feeling like I was going the wrong direction. But I got there and home on time and rested. I will continue to travel there by train. I need to get them to have better access to the hospital from the train platform. It stops right at what was the front entrance, but now it's the back entrance. Fist time the gate was open and I went right up. This time the gates were locked and I had to walk all the way around. No fun with a cane and a limp ;0)

I have plans to take the train to San Jose to visit some friends. She was my baby sitter when I was like 8 yrs old and I haven't seen her since. She popped by with her husband to say hi to mom and I was there so bingo bango bongo, instant vacation. Her husband is an old surfer and bicycle guy and likes the blues, so that should be all good.
