I crossed paths with fellow member, Josh Allison, on Instagram through the #chopcult hashtag. Josh posted a photo of the bike that you see below as a mock up.
With as many events as I attend over the course of a season, I'm fortunate to meet a lot of good dudes with some killer bikes.
The combined sense of accomplishment and excitement that a person has after their very first build is something that only happens once.
Mike Watson is from Canada. He's a really mild-mannered guy. A fabricator by trade, Mike spends most of his spare time wrenching in his garage.
Chris Pasley's 1980 Shovelhead is a bike that tends to draw the attention of anyone within eyesight. I know it grabbed mine when I saw it for the first time, nestled up with all the custom cars, at this year's Hippy Killer Hoedown.
Nick bought the shell of the motor with no internals from a guy out in California back in 2011
Terry Whitehurst and I first met at the last Beer Booters Party. I didn't think I knew him at that point, but then he mentioned his first BMW build, which I remembered following on the Chop Cult Forum.
You don't see a legit 1925 HD frame with a 45 Flattie stuffed in it very often. Come to think of it, I never have! The simplicity of this machine is amazing. It is assembled from swap meet and horse-trading parts with a big dash of ingenuity.
The Tecates are cold, the sun is shining, and bikes are being worked on. I must be at Paul Skura's house in San Diego, California. There are no less than four bikes in various stages of builds and a hot rod in the driveway.
The term "legend" is thrown around too often and the overuse has weakened the true sense of the word. The real legends are the ones who have left a mark on their culture by earning the respect of their peers while creating a lasting impact.
