The Dirty Devil

 

I met Ryan shortly after the first Boogiefarm Clamjam. We hit it off as friends quick. We talked a lot about being Dads and how much we loved our kids, and I instantly had a ton of respect for him. Ryan was new to riding motorcycles and had just picked up his first Sportster. After hanging out with me and some of my friends, he was on his way to chopping up his sporty in his mind. As soon as winter took over Indiana, he hit me up about needing some help on what parts he should get and if I would help him hardtail his bike. Obviously, I was super-pumped to help him and get to hang out in the garage with him. Once his hardtail kit came in we went straight to work tearing his bike down and getting the hardtail piece welded on. Being able to help him get over the first hump in his build was awesome. It's always rad to get to meet good people and help them with whatever, as long as it’s working on choppers.

Favorite thing about this bike: It’s hard to say. This bike is me all the way. It’s super comfortable to ride over long distances, which I kept in mind throughout the build. That’s probably my favorite thing about it. I can ride it anywhere.

Next modification will be: I’ve got a few ideas. I might do some molding to the frame, and I want to engrave and stain the air cleaner. Eventually, I’ll chrome the springer, bars, sissy bar, and oil bag.

Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include: I have the best times going on long road trips with my buds. I rode up to the Venturos BBQ in Detroit the last two years in a row with my buddy Damon, and it always turns out to be my favorite part of the year. Last year on the way back to Indianapolis, we got caught in SW Michigan in the middle of nowhere in a torrential downpour. There was nothing but cornfields in every direction. We found a barn close to the rode that we pushed our bikes into only to learn we were in a tornado warning area. Once the rain calmed down, we took off, but every time we stopped, the storm caught up with us. At one point it was raining on both sides of the road but dry on the road and in the direction we were traveling. It was pretty gnarly, but awesome times nonetheless.

 

 

Thanks to Ben Stucker and Mike Reed. Both are rad human beings, and both have filled my head with more useful information than I thought I’d ever know. Thanks, homies.
