Jamie's got a gun...

Took a couple photos before I tore Jamie's bike down for finish. He's recently been stocking up his garage with some goods like a tig and a lathe.  Who knows, maybe I'll have him build me a bike next time.

goddamn, this is skateboarding....

I've been wanting to post this for almost a year now but somehow get sidetracked everytime I think about it. I was thinking of breaking it down and writing this long, drawn out description of just how rad this Pontus Alv video is but you're better off just watching it and getting psyched on your own.

heads up..

The hardest part of doing anything is usually just coming up with the idea. This is in no way a mind melter or some incredible feat of fabrication, just a simple mount that I was hoping would jive with the way springer looks at the top of the rear leg and I'm stoked on how it came out.

Hell On Wheels Hill Climb

Last month Meatball over at hell on wheels threw a hill climb event that was a hell of a good time. The course was a bitchin short track to a 1000 foot hill climb ending. Some made it and some went down in flames but everyone had a smile on their face and a good laugh. 

Turk had a wild ride but was a champ by the end of the day.

Aussie Chris was a blast to watch ride. He really knows his way around a track and has style for miles.

Mikey Ratt made it first try on his triumph.  Unfortunately I showed up too late to see this badass machine beat the challenge.

Chris Huber on Mike Davis's 1959  Panhead hill climber was definitely the highlight of the day. The bike had a small mechanical problem and didn't make it the first time, but after a quick fix it was good to go. Chris maneuvered this beast all the way round the short track like a breeze and then showed what this bike was built to do up the elevation. It was a sight to see.
Thanks for the good times everyone.

The New Guy

Jason and NIck have decided to let me Chris Mumma contribute to their blog. I've known them both for a few years now and they have become good friends of mine. Being that I enjoy shooting a lot of photos when were riding, hanging, or going to a show or event, I can show all you folks who haven't gotten hip to the whole smart phone Instagram thing what's goin on in our neck of the woods. And also some of the stuff that I get into. So all of you who surf the web still in your caves I hope you enjoy what I got to show and say.
