My buddy Kenny has been machining parts for bicycles and guns for years. He's only 25 but he has such a scientific and thorough approach to everything he does that you'd think he was 50.
Every once in a while he talks about building a motorcycle, if he actually pulls the trigger i could only imagine it'll end up being something super dialed...
...and completely assembled with a 6mm allen wrench.

I remember the first time I consciously heard Fugazi. It was 1994, I was 14, and I was standing in Ed Templetons living room. They were playing on his stereo, I asked who it was and he gave me a tape.
As far as music was concerned, that moment changed the game for me.

I met T-Bone a while ago when he was building this bike...slightly ahead of its time i thought. i was never really into the modern sport/chopper thing, i just didn't get it. This bike kinda changed my view on them. I definately lean towards old style chompers but I also dig and appreciate anything badass thats been tweaked and handcrafted.
He's been laying low for a while but he's still doing his thing. In fact, i've seen some sneak peaks and don't worry he'll be blowing minds in the very near future, trust me.
reppin ATR back in the day.

I was blog surfing the other day when i stumbled upon these pics of Mark Drew's pre-unit on its way to Japan on the Chopped Out blog and its been haunting me since. Everytime i think about a motorcycle that bike pops up in my head.
I can't shake it.
It is a straight time machine from a 60's bike show. Everything looks so perfect, all that chrome, the wheel combo and stance, the tank & bars.....mind blower. I can't wait for the day i get to see it in person.

Started off strong. Shoving a screwdriver into the base of your fingernail is not as cool as it sounds...
Since Matt and I were working out in Victorville, I decided we should hike to Deep Creek after work and relax in the hot springs till the sun went down. I've been coming here for years and have seen some crazy shit go down. This was Matts first time, i don't think he was ready for the old hippys walking around that place butt naked....i could see the fear in his eyes.
Nothing like seeing a couple as old as your Grandparents literally "hanging out" all over the place.

this guy has been randomly parking at the end of my street for years now, just sits there, pulls the shades and reads a book. A casual nod of acknowledgement has been the extent of our conversation but in a way i kind of want to keep it like that.......an enigma.
