Best Properties on the Market

The Week Magazine is pretty much my exclusive news source. It presents both sides and maintains relevant content while appealing to our useless curiosities. They have “Best Properties on the Market” every issue and this week’s theme was rad pads with epic garages. This is for those of you home shopping in Sonoma or wanting…

Suicide Front Axles

I have mixed feelings on the rat rod thing… an old and original build that’s put together haphazardly and aged aggressively has some organic beauty, but gluing rubber rats and barbed wire to your car with a flat paint job can get kind of hokey. This guy with the Case tractor grill and suicide front…

A Culture for your Kulture… if you insist.

; Picture Justin and me rollin’ in the ‘Lac. So, we were cruising through a parking garage the other day talking about how the connotation of cool things can be ruined at times by their pseudo-guarded and over-saturated cultures. For example, Justin mentioned how in reality fixie bikes are cool (one fixed-gear and brakeless –…

Full Tilt Minnesota

Full Tilt is one of Minnesota’s few purist chopper shows. Events like this, the David Mann show in Nordeast this year & Bearded Lady are as good as they come. We can thank Heavy for rounding it up along with support from other crews like Union Speed & HA 81, among others. Columbus&Co hooked me…

More Weekend Whips

Here are some more photos from Saturday’s car shows. Justin and I did St. Bonaventure with Columbus & Co during the midday and then Anoka, MN in the eveing. Justin helped build the Deuce Coupe project (Medusa at top) at Vescio’s when he was working there some years back. It’s a true show-stopper and it’s…

Anoka Car Show & Wide Angle Lenses

Morlock hooked me up with a loaner lens because I’m looking into a wide angle. This is the Canon 17-40 and it was a riot to use. Any wider than 17mm and I’d see the back of my head.

LIFE Photos from 60’s Outlaw Scene

I’ve collected a lot of photos that I’ve come across over the years and there’s a folder full of the late 60’s Outlaw scene, specifically the HA’s on the West Coast. From what I understand, a lot of these pics were from the Baraboo chapter. Most of the photos came from an XL Sportster thread…

Pour Another Cup of Coffee & Enjoy This…

I swiped this from The Horse BC’s Balktalk. Women on bikes are foxy and a little home maintenance goes a long way. It’s Micky Lynn’s Harley Davidson Ironhead chop and I think it’s a really cool, dirty little machine. Good functionality though with disc brakes front and back and a riding stance that looks to…

Bikes from Messaround

This is a really well done Triumph unit chop. Simple, but plenty of attention to detail. Copper lines, velocity stacks, chain tensioner and a whole lot of chrome. That tank is fantastic. Tristan Henderson, from Further Performance, owns this awesome little GS400 lane-splitter. He was a pleasure to talk to and is a very knowledgeable…

Minneapolis Messaround

The Messaround is a fantastic period correct car show in Minneapolis at the Memory Lanes Bowling Alley. The cars are top-notch hot rods, the bikes were killer and the scene is solid greaser culture. I’m passionate about tattooed women and cars with more than 5 carburetors so it was very relative to my interests.  http://www.minneapolismessaround.com/…
