The other builder whose bikes couldn't possibly be built by anybody else @paulcoxindustries he's a gifted builder, machinist, leatherworker, knife maker and nice fuckin guy. His stuff stands alone, like so few builders. #spearandmagichelmet #goodfriend #originalnycchoppers #Brooklyn

The Hell on Wheels hillclimb.

I didn't go. 
I was too busy getting my website ready to relaunch.
I am stoked to relaunch, the response has been KILLER, thank you all! 
BUT I DIDN'T GOTO MEATBALL'S HILLCLIMB!!!
I am so bummed, it looked so fuckin rad!

So rad that Jason McCann and I are building a bike just for it next year. 
So we won't suck as we will rule the hill! 
I hope, we'd be happy just to beat Jason Klements up the hill. so, in true form, here are some pictures of guys actually RIDING their bikes!






Thanx to Jeff Hiatt for these pix, i thought I had lost them and spent HOURS tearing my shop apart trying to find them, they are so fucking awesome.  needless to say i was stoked to re-locate them!

Few things compare to stock Harley Davidson parts.

Mert Lawwill. One of my true heroes. Go watch On Any Sunday if you don't understand. My biggest inspiration to build my turbo sporty is watching film of Mert full throttle coming out of any turn two on the XR750. #unsunghero #hero #truehero #prosthetics #xr750 #flattrack

Ok. Yeah. I collect Bardahl stuff. It's the one thing I really collect. I have been looking for one of these Eldon toy U-40's for years. Anyone? Doesn't need to be in the box! #obsessive #addittoyouroil #bardahl #needmorebardahlstuffalways

Truth. Don't forget the engines that powered the P-51 Mustang. Merlin by Rolls Royce. #airracing #metalonmetal #needoil

Interesting where inspiration comes from.

This is Makonabe, editor of the epic 50 issue run of Hard Core Chopper Japan, now editor of Chopper Journal Japan.  Ruler, stoked to seem him soon.


This is his,  the Twin Cam Super XR.  Sundance Engineering
super XR heads.
I rode the bike, (that's me above) from Yokohama into Tokyo.  At the time it was a killer bike, but not really what i was into.  Tmes have changed.
