The Catalina Wine Mixer 3 - Great Weekend!

I've still got a smile on my face.  What a great weekend!  The Catalina Wine Mixer 3 had great weather, aside for a little rain shower on Friday evening.  We really appreciate everyone coming out and contributing to the good times. 

Big thanks to the sponsors for donating to the raffle - Biltwell, Lowbrow Customs, 47Industries, Guerrilla Fabrication, Rick's Cycle Parts, Star Leather USA, Lady Hump, Rootless Cycle, Cone Engineering, Imperial House, Mach Modified, Slop Shop, Axlespacers.com - There were some very happy kooks Saturday evening!

Also special thanks to Harold "McGoo" McGruther for entrusting me with care of his "Coctagon". The whiffle bat battle royale is always a good time!

The Lowbrow Getdown 2015

Pretty pumped about heading to Ohio again for the Lowbrow Getdown.  This is a GREAT gathering of like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts in an even BETTER setting.  Nelson's Ledges Quarry Park is an awesome park with a great spring-fed swimming hole.  Last year The Getdown was double booked with an Electronic Dance Music (EDM or RAVE) Festival and the people watching was prime.  This year Lowbrow Customs has booked David Allan Coe for Friday and Blue Oyster Cult headlining Saturday night.  

Ross, Jason, Whit and I leave Thursday from Dixie.  Can't wait!  Here are some pics from last year's Getdown.  I highly suggest you come out if you can!

8 Feet of Heat

I've slowly been gathering parts for my next motorcycle over the past several months. Rickey Lewis, of Rick's Cycle Parts built an awesome cone shovel with a ton of nice internal parts. I picked up a 5-in-a-4 transmission from my buddy Duane and Shane B. worked is engraving magic on the rocker covers and nose cone.

All of my parts are now in the hands of Michael Lewis (Violent Choppers) for some fabrication work. I just spent some time with Michael talking out our plan and watching him work his magic. He is making some changes to the Flyrite Choppers "scorcher" frame and I'm really excited about the progress.

I've always wanted to run Invaders and this bike will be completely over the top!

Here are a few progress pics:
