Made this little shifter for Johan in Florida. Its stupid how much time I spend on even mellow things like this to try and make them "feel" right (or at least what I think is right)

this is just cool...
I had posted another Danny MacAskill video a couple years ago because it was pretty wild and also set to the same Band of Horses song as in Guy's part in the Lakai video. Fast forward to now and he's back with another crazy video...and who doesn't like a little Swedish progressive rock that sounds straight from the Top Gun soundtrack.

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.

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

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.

The idea is to ride out there Saturday morning through Trabuco Canyon and over to Ortega Hwy. where we'll end up at the lake and pretty much spend the day hanging out....not giving away a Knucklehead or trips to Japan, just regular bullshitting, staring at bikes, fishing and splashing around in the warm, swampy water. Hopefully some of you guys have your 'ol lady bring jetskis or boats so things will get a little buck. Later on we're gonna be cooking up a few hot dogs so get 'em while they last, maybe project some shitty movies on the side of my trailer? who knows....we don't know what we're doing, this whole thing is kinda being freestyled. We're trying to round up a bunch of coolers and canopies for shade cause it's going to be hot and miserable but if you want to bring your own deal go for it, there will be plenty of space to do it, so bring a tent, thong, a radio or don't...
Just so everybody is clear, the lake charges $10 per vehicle (includes entry for everybody in it or on it)for day use and $5 more if you want to stay the night Saturday (they will be checking to see what pass you have in the evening for campers) so have cash in your pocket as you come up to the gate to make things move smoothly, just remember to tell them that you're there for the ATR deal otherwise you're gonna have to pay $25 to camp. The gate fee gives you access to the lakes showers and marina facilities also they're going to put a few Porta Potties in our area so we don't have to go to the Marina to poop. If you need to buy stuff, the Marina store has snacks and fire wood or you can go down the street to the Grocery store or restaurants if you want to do your own thing. If you want to bring a boat or jetski, the lake charges $25 for use of ramp and permit.
A few of us are meeting up to take the scenic route Saturday morning at the Mobil gas station/Ralphs parking lot (2504 E. Chapman ave. Orange 92869) about 8:30am and leaving at 9am. The ride will be over 60 miles so we'll stop once to top off all the little gas tanks. Planning on getting to the lake around 10:30ish so if you want to take another route or show up later thats where we'll be.
REMINDER: STRICT SPEED LIMIT OF 5MPH ONCE INSIDE SO DON'T BLOW IT

big john RIP..
This is a little late but you might remember from an earlier post I did of my buddy John Sirmon who was diagnosed with cancer a couple years ago. He lost his battle earlier this year but had fought hard all the way till the end. Derek Fukuhara made this video of some of his last healthy sessions but I have lagged on posting it. Cancer has been a heavy one for me as of late with my Mom being diagnosed a few months ago but like John, my Mom is a fighter. I'm thankful to have such a solid relationship with my parents it helps dealing with this kind of stuff easier to swallow but still, positivity and just trying to keep a smile on my face have been the toughest things for me to do lately but seeing something like this video does wonders and I start to realize how much people really impact and imprint on your life. I've always made it a point to surround myself with people who will remain legendary to me for one reason or another. John is one of those guys and for no real reason other than the fact that he was a nice guy and always had a smile on his face and thats the kind of shit people don't forget.
I love telling stories but I'm not the best storyteller, I tend to get a little too involved in detail. Theres no such thing as a long story short with me unfortunately and I apologize. That being said, I'll try and keep this short and simple... Solid dude, solid style and with a switch back-tail like that, how can he not be a thing of legend.
Rip in peace dude.

Masa from Japan builds some crazy stuff at his shop, LUCK MC. His Knucklehead he built for Born Free had so many killer details i gave up looking at it. Last week we met up with him and T-Bone and cruised to Lake Elsinore. I snapped a quick pic when nobody was watching while at the lookout.

I've really been digging Max's Born Free video. The apocalyptical look of him riding around the Bay is some of the best riding footage I think I've ever seen and his words brief, yet effective. From the first time we met I've always thought of him as a very articulate person, everything he say's seems to just plain make sense. Topics like skateboarding or choppers, both yield a feeling difficult to describe because you have to actually "live it" in order to truly know what makes them special but he somehow always seems to have a way of putting it into words so relatable that you can do nothing but sit back and think "whoa...nailed it on the head."
You know those old guys you meet on the street or in a dark corner of a bar that just look and sound like they've done it all and seen it all, and after talking to, you walk away feeling a little more enlightened and even more convinced that you will never be as cool as them? Well, Max.....I think you're well on your way to becoming that cool.

things to do in Richmond...
Meditation 4 Madmen | Jasin Phares and Harolds Iron Works from Meditation 4 Madmen on Vimeo.I met Jasin a while ago at Max's while he was building the first version of his 69' Shovelhead. He's always had this presence about him, when he walks into the room you quickly realize you're not the most handsome dude in there anymore... The guys from Meditation 4 Madmen did this little introductory video of a series they're going to start doing, check it out. Harolds Iron Works

STANCE | DAKOTA ROCHE WELCOME VIDEO from Stance on Vimeo.
It's pretty cool having such talented friends.
I've known Dakota for a long time and he's always shredded. It's wild seeing him go from the little kid at the park to one of the gnarliest BMX dudes on the planet. As for Mark, aside from being a rad photographer/skater/handsome dude, he also make really cool little videos (including my Born Free video last year). So I was especially stoked to see these two link up for this cool little edit for our friends at Stance.
Keep killing it guys.
oh yeah, check out Dak's part in Cult's Talk is Cheap video and prepare to have your mind blown.

Mike Tubbs started this podcast series called Chopper Prophets which he created earlier this month and it's starting to pick up speed. He's already got a few interviews up with dudes like Larry Pierce and Caleb Owens. To be honest, I was a little apprehensive when he told me the name of it simply because to me the word "prophet" implies someones better or above everyone else (when the truth is we're all just insecure nerds trying to convince ourselves we're not), but once I talked to Mike he made it clear its the farthest thing from that...basically he's really interested in what happens outside of the garage and how we even got there in the first place. My little interview went up last night and it's full of me saying "like" while trying to be interesting.
Check out my trainwreck and all the other podcasts Mikes done at -

Chase asked me to make some steer-stops for his extended 47 Indian girder he's going to be mounting to his revised Shovel. His frames a little raked out so they had to be a little tall and since this part doesn't exist on Ebay, I was able to freestyle it. A couple tabs and a little cast finishing and it almost looks like it could have been...well, maybe?

ATR in Europe
The moons aligned and some how between personal life and my chopper life I am able to make it over the pond to Europe. We will have a booth with some pegs and merch at The Castle Run in Denmark, Kustom Kulture Forever in Germany, and the Jokers Show in Sweden. The biggest bummer is that Jason isn't able to go because his wife has a bun in the oven and Lil' Tyrone is due right around the same time. If you are going to be at these shows please cruise by and say howdy. Thanks to Keith, Rob, James, Patrick, Mattias, Mike, Dan, Arie, Dean and everyone else that's gonna help my dumb American ass out.
