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.
I first met Tony Nguyen around 10 years ago when we were both living in Mammoth, CA. I was crashing on the floor of my buddy Joe Eddy's place and snowboarding every day I could.
Shooting bikes and contributing to ChopCult provides me the opportunity to meet a lot of dynamic and engaging motorcycle people. My pal Lemmy falls into both of those categories.
Jordan Heathcock, of Slop Shop, humbly says a lot of "trial and error" was involved in this Shovel Long bike build.
I've known Aaron Elliott (aka"AE") now, for about 9 years.
