1946 FL

Neat old bike. '46 FL motor, Trans, kicker cover, and offset springer, but it's all in an early '38 frame.

rock and roll...

Back when i actually used to go out and stay up late to watch rock and roll shows i also used to shoot many of them... this was Indian Jewelry back in May of 2008  in the only good bar in Knoxville, TN called the Pilot Light. I had seen them open for someone at Spaceland in LA a year or two before and was just kinda whatever about them at the time, but the show in Knoxville was captivating.

 I had to go to Knoxville every year for work and came back to this place every night i was there on each trip. Even made a few friends. Bought a 1972 Fender Musicmaster Bass from this guy Will Fist after he played his set which was one 20-minute song. It was actually good, very Spacemen 3 before everyone and their mother referenced Spacemen 3 to be cool.  I asked him about the bass the year before and he remembered and asked me a year later if i still wanted it. Guess he needed money. Paid him the $175 asking price.

I should get out more these days.

Japan 2012...1710 pictures

I only took 1710 pictures this year in Japan for our trip to the Mooneyes Hot Rod & Custom Show. I'll try and start going through them... We had another amazing time there. We saw all our old friends and keep meeting great new ones. I would saw the show was even better than the 3 previous years i have attended, the bar is perpetually raised by all the builders over there, hats off to you. And hats off to Shige and the whole Moon staff for doing what they do and all the work that goes into pulling off a show this size! I kinda have a clue as what it takes... Mike's Preunit looked amazing as did the rest of the guests bikes. Many of them are our Born-Free 4 builders and award winners which was cool to see it taking them places.

Thanks again to everyone that hung out, took us around, let us into your shop or home! We love you. Now i'm more jazzed than ever to get my '37 UL done!!!

It's Grants Birthday!

Happy birthday Mr. Bandit

New Shirt, New Project

So back in August I acquired this 1941 porkchop express. Original plan was on the cycle-delic side, but as most plans go... The new direction is definitely hinged at the birth of the atomic age-the glorious post war days of the custom motorcycle. Still a long way to go, with a short time to get there. Anyway Grant had a great idea for a new shirt and I put pen to paper, incorporating this project and voila, our new pocket tee.
