The Cocktagon!

I found footage of the infamous "Cocktagon" from EDR.  I had absolutely no intentions at all of participating in this event until 3 minutes before it was supposed to start.  Watch the video and you will see why!

I'm shirtless and run around like a crazy person!

EDR 2013 - "It all washes off in the shower"

I don't even know where to begin.  I think I'm going to spread out pictures/stories over this blog, my Facebook, the Americana Speed Shop Facebook page and Instagram.  The blog posts will be "Photodump" style.

Can't wait to do it again!

El Diablo Run 2013

Bill, Boss Ross and myself are heading West on Friday in preparation for the EL Diablo Run.  To say that I'm excited would be the understatement of the century!  I've enjoyed my past trips to Mexico but those have been on the Yucatan peninsula (EDR takes place in Baja.) and I can't think of a better venue to blast around on my motorcycle.

600 miles on the bike, fishing in the Sea of Cortez, and spending a few days on the "left coast" is just what the Dr. ordered!

I'm looking forward to sharing this adventure with two of my closest brothers.  The following are pictures from EDR's past posted on Chop Cult.  I look forward to capturing my own images on this epic trip!

Ready for Mexico!

Got some pics yesterday of Bill's bike with the new tool roll.  We leave on Friday for California and EDR starts on 5/23.  Can't wait!!!

The Gentleman's Tool Roll

I'm pretty proud of this one.  Bill wanted a tool roll for his killer XS650 and I wanted to get it done before we leave for the El Diablo Run.  I put some time in on the tooling and am really pumped on how it came out.

He'll be able to keep some essentials handy on our trip.  I'll get some pictures tomorrow when we mount it to his bike.

Help out Hugh's Handbuilt!

Hugh is a great guy that needs a little help.  His shop was flooded over the weekend and he lost a lot of inventory/parts.  Send some dough over via the link below if you can help out.  Pay it forward.

Latest Leather Work

I made this "Cash Register" wallet for Longview Garage out of Houston, TX.  This was a fun project!
