weekend a la cruz

Cruz skateshop rules. every year they host an annual party weekend over their anniversary. its owned by two friends of mine. Sandy Cruz and Gordon Eckler. between the two of them, its all skateboards and roller derby gear.

so this year the party included an eating contest, a wallride contest, and a dice (3's) contest (which my body told me to slow down and sleep for 17 hours straight thru the dice contest, dinner, and the rest of the night into morning.) fuck it, i saved money.

wall ride ramp specs. 2ft tall 6ft wide. 40 degree angle. simple??? maybe.

welcome to wallenberg.

this was a make at 14 ft. oudalay rules.

adrian ripped 14ft as well.

those two tied at 14 ft and it was totally insane. push push push...push push push

the day after the wall ride contest, oudalay was back in action... the contenders last supper

yabo barfo. 7 corn dogs and 7 beers

this guy won, simply tricking his competition by hiding the corndog sticks under his napkin. false sense of security amongst the table. i cant remember what he ate/drank. 13 corn dogs and 3 beers maybe?

thanks gordo and sandy for a ruling weekend!!!

Care Package from Bruce

As a thanks for checking out that bike for Bruce, he sent me a box of goodies. I told him I didn't need anything just for taking pictures of a bike. He insisted on something so I told him to send me some wild parts with something for my pegboard and not  a restaurant gift card.

His package of goodies was perfect. A ratchet top clutch release arm, a crankcase breather with mount, a bicycle style kicker pedal, old o-ring pegs, a single spring loaded peg, some knick-knacks, a twenty dollar bill, and a highway bar with genuine Anderson pegs on it.

I was pretty jazzed about all of it. The crankcase breather with the mount is exactly what I haven't gotten around to getting on my Kawasaki. The lucky twenty dollar bill will go in the shovelhead's toolbox with my lucky one dollar bill from Ed. The rest will go on the wall.

This peg had a hole drilled in it at some point.

This one has a bit of rash on it, but I like my pegs to have a back story.

Here's this crazy peg with a detent spring. (I'm easily amused.)

Keychains and belt buckle... It's hard to believe that the MoCo licensed cigarettes as late as the mid-1990's

TACO MOTO TUESDAY Clothing Drive at Alex's Bar (pt.2)

Just a few more pics from this weeks #TACOMOTOTUESDAY (follow @kultofspeed on IG for future tuesday locations). Another huge thanks to everyone who brought out bags and bags of clothing to help out the less fortunate in our communities. The clothing drive was a huge success and shows just how much crap we really have, we really don't need. Give it to someone who can use it! And a huge thanks to ALEX'S BAR LONG BEACH for the Tacos and Beers all night long!!!

Barn Find Garbage Wagon

This bike is not really a secret. It's been on the local craigslist for a very long time.  If there are pictures in the ad, they are pretty much terrible and the asking price is on the high side of perfect.  I haven't been in the market for a hack rig, so I never called.  However, my internet friend Bruce from Nebraska was really interested and asked me to go and check it out.  I know why the ad pictures are so bad. The bike has been in a dark warehouse since about 1994, I think.  That was the last tag on it.

Here's the sidecar.

That's actually the seat for it sitting in the sidecar. Blue velour, yo.

All duded out even a side mirror for the hack passenger to use.

Lots of bumpers. Safety first I guess.

I haven't seen all this twisted rod stuff before.

The dude straight bought the full catalog's worth of the stuff though.

More bumpers.

Breaker ONE-NINE, breaker ONE-NINE!

This was the deal breaker. Bruce was told that the frame numbers for a 1971 should be on a boss on the frame leg not the neck. I don't know. I don't much about stock.


What do you call this style of paint? Fishscale, maybe?


Bruce didn't buy it, but he sent me a very awesome care package and I got to see a crazy old bike on a Sunday afternoon.
