Chop Meet 2013

We are now in full swing planning more for Chop Meet 2013 in Saskatoon.  This years event will be held at Bernie's Machine Works in Saskatoon.  We are promoting the event as one part Swap Meet and the half  Ride-in Chopper & Classic Cycle show.  We started a blog as a home base for all info and updates related to the event.  We will soon be looking for sponsors and ironing out some of the details.  Take a minute to check out the page and start making plans to attend the event on September 7, 2013.  We will be updating on the blog and the facebook page as things progress.....


Jordan snapped this pic of me awhile back.  It looks like i'm really in the zone on my new Southbend lathe but in all reality it isnt even hooked up to power yet.  I turned the chuck by hand to narrow the intake manifold for my 47.

Got a rad package from my good pal over at Blackboard Cafe.  Al and Brittany have moved to the next level with handmade tops made by themselves in their living room in Los Angeles, California..  The quality and fit is amazing and I foresee big things for these guys.  Check in to their webstore every once in awhile as they are constantly adding new items on a limited supply.  Bottom picture is me in the Mann Booze run tee over the classic striped tee and my oldest daughter in the Losers old lady tee.

On the Streets (soon)

Putting together this 61 Pan shovel for my buddy Adam which started off as a 61 swing-arm basket case.  We farmed out a few things, like paint by Cole Jabusch, the seat which was upholstered by Haifley Bros. in sunny Phoenix, Arizona.   These amazing bars were custom built for the bike by Mr. Cro Customs himself, Caleb Owens in Culver City, CA.  The bike is nearing completion with just a few items left to do on the list.  Can't wait to kick it over and put this black beauty on the road.

Flathead goes boom

This Video was made by my friend Jordan from the antiquated mule blog. This was such a surreal time finally hearing that thing fire up and it actually ran good! I've been dreaming of a bike like this since I was 14 years old. Thanks to everyone who helped me with this project.

Joe King

My pal Paulo is killing it with his new line of one-off lids based on vietnam war military helmets.  Made from authentic vietnam era helmet skins, these things are bad to the bone and cool as fuck.  The attention to detail is what makes these so damn cool. Check them out at Joe King and grab one from him before they are gone, only 10 will be made!

Good Times ahead

Well the clock is ticking and its almost that time of year again.  I will once again be heading down for the big show as well as the week leading up and the week following.  can't wait. I'm sending my knuck down with Jordan and the gang and i'm flying to LA on the 22nd.  see you there.
