while everybody gets rest, ive been working on my paint skills. no matter how easy the pro's make it look, this shit is hard, takes alot of time and cost some green backs.. so next time you see your local paint star, tell them its ok to look gay, just keep up the good work.. and for yall punks that think you got it going on......never drop a fucking tank that has been done up like a pair of sexy draws..what kind of shit is that...

We are throwing our Grand Opening Party here Saturday August 9th from 2-7pm. Weâ€™ve got 3 bands playing in our parking lot, The Vicious Cycles Mc, Ellice Blackout and The Shakedown. On top of that full pig in spit bbq and a ton of beers. There will also be a half pipe in the lot and a bunch of sick old vans. We also will have overnight bike parking for anyone who canâ€™t ride out to the after party at Lucky Bar, where The Gypsy Hacks & the Vicious Cycles will be playing.

Hey there Matt,
So glad to have gotten a chance to meet you at Born Free. I am e-mailing you in response to our conversation about my show here in Boise. Great builders like Matt from Wrecked Metals, Todd from Small City Cycles, Mike from Old-Stf and Mike from Union Motorcycle Classics. I am working on others as well but I'm so stoked to have the amazing quality builders that i do. Info here.
Well, I'll be the first to admit, I'm no expert. But here's a Ironhead chopper that was for sale on Sunday 7/26 at the Long Beach Cycle Swap. It's got the tell tale "South Bay Swoop" of a Fat's Noriega build, although they were also popular in several old Dick Allen photographs (after all, their shops were within a quarter mile of each other in Redondo Beach). The front springer is obviously not a Fat's springer. Rumor has it the current owner trying to flip it, bought it last week out of a barn in Iowa, which might make it a mail order chopper or build by some out of town shop, but we've all heard rumors fall apart in short order. Regardless, it's a piece of history worth a sharing and I love the Swoop. So, enjoy.
The HS Dodge Magnum needed some serious frontend repairs. All Magnums have the same problems with sway bar struts specially with the heavy Hemi engines so we ordered the best sway bar struts in the industry: POWERGRID. No time to place them before holidays so my mechanic Hertogs' did the job for me and also place a new righthandside swingarm. No more noices from the frontend, only the noice of the 360HP engine/exhaust hahaha. Been busy with the BMX Museum at the BMX Worlds in Rotterdam last weekend, thanks for visiting us. The Caravan did a great job, slept well, transported all 10 Old School BMX bikes without a scratch, no problem with the towing so its a keeper, out with the Camper, in with the Caravan! Some of you know what our new Hoodlum Society project is, some don't. I don't tell you yet, its time for Holdiays now!
