JIMS NEW 135-INCH RACING MONSTER

The latest from the House of JIMS will be the Power House behind the 5-Ball Belly Tank

By Bandit, Paul Platts, with photos from the JIMS crew and a George Fleming illo
We’ve worked with JIMS staff for maybe 30 years, maybe longer. Jim Thiessen has one of the most solid companies in the industry. When the custom world is on fire JIMS keeps rolling along.

JIMS has just released our new Steady Roll Tappets
By Keith Ball
It is no secret to us at JIMS (and to top engine builders) that performance V-Twin engines require more valve lift than stock designs. This increases the load on the tappet roller, which can lead to failure. Tappet roller failure is a catastrophic and expensive failure. Broken needle rollers allow the tappet roller to deform, causing cam lobe damage. Pieces of the hard ...

The Assalt Weapon II Reaches Lucky Devil Metal Works in Houston

By Bandit with photos by Wrench
I researched tube frame builders in the Los Angeles area and found one, but then it dawned on me. One of our very cool and talented friends also builds cars, sometimes from the ground up. We have worked with Kent Weeks of Lucky Devil Metal Works, out of Houston for lots of years. Kent built the coolest bobber on the planet, the Root Beer Float, for the lovely Sin Wu. I made the call...

The Mudflap Girl FXR Saga

A Convoluted Story of Romance, Family, and the Open Road

By Bandit with photos by Markus Cuff
It all started when a brother was desperate for cash and I bought a basket case Dyna, and with the help of JIMS machine turned it into an FXR.

Making progress on this build, with a massive upside down Custom Chrome front end, a brother stumbled into my shop and told me about Paul Cavallo ...
