For Sale: 1958-62 Early 283 Chevy Engine & TH350 trans. Ready To Run!







Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans.
This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast.
The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model.
It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's.
After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good.
The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley!
I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs.
I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!!
It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car!
It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only.
$1500.00 firm.

The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.

New Dished Wassell Tanks Are Here!



It's been almost a year since we started designing these Dished Wassell Tanks and we couldn't be happy with the outcome. They feature the same great shape as our other Wassell options, but with the added styling that harkens back to 60's show bikes. Our new tooling incorporates the dishing in the tank shell stamping process. Other dished fuel tanks cut and weld the indentation leaving seams and sanding marks. Since ours are all one single piece, the shape is perfect every time and will require zero paint prep around the dishing edge. Order yours here. (Free shipping on all us orders over $99)- Thanks, Zach



BF8 PICS PART 2









QUAKING ASPEN (pt.3)







Fish brought out one of the few remaining 4 1/2 year old bottles of his Apple Pie Moonshine to toast our dear friend Arturo who passed away June 20th. He wouldn't have been able to make this trip as he was set to sail out to sea on the 21st., but he'll now travel with us on every trip we make in our heart and memories. Love you Arturo!






Random photography from the QUAKING ASPEN MOTO CAMPOUT

The freedom to get out of the city and go put to use what motorcycles where meant to be used for, beautiful scenery, escaping the endless congestion of city traffic, and feeling the winds across your face (even if it's 100 degrees through the hell of Bakersfield, it's better than the parking lots of Los Angeles). You don't have to have a product to sell or overpriced food vendors to visit, when you've got whispering pines to tell you stories of their existence amongst the clouds, good friends, and a cooler full of ice cold beverages. Doing this isn't rocket science. Put it together, make it happen.

2016 Born Free Show Wrap Up


Every year I try to find a new way to say "Overwhelming" when describing this show. The sheer number of bikes of this caliber assembled in one single place is simply a thing to behold. Anyone who thinks choppers are dead must've missed the memo because there was a metric shit ton of them at Born Free 8. Organizers added new stuff like the FXR show, Wall of Death and Camp Born Free, which all added to the excitement. It felt like the crowd was bigger this year, but somehow the vibe was mellower. Might be because we had a smaller booth in a different spot, but whatever the reason, our whole crew had fun and we're already talking about next year. Enjoy some pics...

Art's TACO MOTO TUESDSAY Memorial at the V Room, Long Beach










We'll always remember you Art!
{insert the biggest heart emoji in the world here}
So great to see so many people ride out this week in honor of Arturo's memory. We overfilled the bar (thanks to the V Room in Long Beach for allowing us to host this there) and the taco stand across the street! I'll never forget you Art. You were one special dude, and as often as you thanked us for helping you, it was you who was truly our most amazing friend! I'm gonna miss you.
