New Bike Feature: Jesse Pafford's 75 FX Shovelhead Chopper


Article by Lisa M. Ballard / Photos by Chris McMorrow - I could have easily titled this feature The Apology as I need to apologize to ChopCult member Jesse Pafford publicly. You see, Jesse has patiently waited for his bike to be featured here since the beginning of October. Since then, I dealt with email hacking (a big F U to whoever is to blame) and lost over ten years of contacts and many work-in-process features, one being Jesse's. I have to commend Jesse for not putting me on blast for making him wait. His bike and the touching story deserve to be featured, and I am thrilled to showcase it today. Read more

Summer Nights

"Hey guys, putting together a Summer Nights event with our buddies from Ironfire Brewing in Temecula. We’re gonna have some food, some tunes and we’d like YOU to bring your family/loved ones out to eat, shoot the shit and show off yer bikes/cars. We’re not hosting any vendors at this event on August 6th (saving that for the Fall), just wanted an excuse to see friends and hang with the kids while we look at whips and motorcycles. Take note of the brewery location, it’s NOT their venue in Old Town Temecula. Follow Cash and Carry Makers Market on Instagram to never miss out on the fun!" - Cash and Carry Makers Market

Charlie's Golden Pan To Benefit The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum

 

In Charlie's memory, and in the spirit of the great thing he liked to call Motorsickilism, this incredible handcrafted 1961 Panhead Chopper is being raffled for $20 per chance or 6 opportunities for $100. On Friday, August 13, 2021, one lucky winner will be selected randomly through a third-party source to be the caretaker of Charlie’s legacy. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum in Charlie's honor. It is the perfect way to end this story, maybe the only one that makes sense in the wake of such a tragic loss. Help put Charlie into the history books for one last great accomplishment.


This bike was originally built by an outstanding group including Mondo Porras of Denver's Choppers, Steve Massicotte and Kyle Brewer of Paughco, Panhead Billy at B&B Racing and, Dennis SanFelipo with many others contributing along the way. Originally this bike was meant to be part of the legend of the most perfect chopper ever built. After Charlie's premier motion picture effort in “Rebels On The Highway,” creator Brechtel set his sights on the second film derived from our culture titled “Rough Boys.” This time the storyline would reveal a host of clues throughout the film that would lead moviegoers on a scavenger hunt that would see one lucky winner end up with the Golden Pan and $10,000 cash. Some swore they had seen it; others doubted it existed; however, in the quest for it, the very bike you see before you was built. Unfortunately before finishing the movie project, Charlie was tragically taken from this world.

High Side Coffee Joins The Marketplace

 


"High Side packages high quality specialty coffee in single serve brew bags. We believe everyone should get out and explore, and be caffeinated while doing so. By choosing High Side Coffee, you're supporting direct trade import practices, sustainable farming, and a supply chain of small businesses. High Side Coffee was created as a solution to often watery, and usually stale travel coffee. As a team of campers, hikers, vanners, and travelers, we realized the greater need for convenient, tasty coffee that you could pack in, and pack out easily. From there, High Side Coffee was created. We realized that part of enjoying your coffee, either while traveling with Brew Bags, or from your pourover with Whole Bean, was knowing that you’re making a conscious purchase, from a company that understands the need for ethical and fair treatment, and payment of its partners." -High Side Coffee
