Flipping in Germany

Michael,from Germany,just sent these photo's of the Hollywood flipper caps that I sold him,installed on his 41' coupe. I'd say they found the perfect home! I think Dean,from Dice Mag, has a brother he doesn't know about!

He also sent a pic of his 53' coupe

Dago's speed shop invades Canada!

The 68' sporty has finally reached it's new home,up in Canada! after month's of waiting,Rick's finally got his new Baby. I can't tell you how glad I am that it's gone to someone who really dig's it!
He say's he's been riding it everyday. Rick got the bike just in time to make the big "Gas Town Motorcycle show" held in the historic district of Vancouver B.C.
He had been telling me about the show for some time,but I had no idea it was that big of a show!
the quality of the bikes there is outstanding.

what made the story even sweeter was when he told me that the Sporty took First place in the "vintage chopper" class at the show. I'm glad they didn't call it a Bobber! Gongrats,Rick!

A good day in So Cal

A few weeks ago,Maurice from the Netherlands dropped into town for the day. It just so happened that I had popped the new windshield in the nomad. So I said what the hell,let's clean it up and roll around L.A. for a bit. It was cool to be cruising the car again. Since I had been bodyworking the roof of the car,working on my house and working in the shop on various bikes and other projects, I hadn't had it out on the highway in about four years. We stopped in and saw a few friends in different parts of the city,had some good grub and came back to my house for a good BBQ with some other Buddies. It was a good day!

One special stop was to see my Homeboy Barry. Barry has been one of my closest friends for about 20 years now. Barry and I met at Laidlaws Harley Davidson dealer. It's funny how you meet some of the most important people in your life. This stop was special because Barry's father,Barry Cheshawalla,Sr had just passed away a few day's earlier,and this was the first chance I'd had to get together with him since his father was in the hospital a week before. Barry and his family are Osage Indian. The blanket that we're holding in front of the car carries a great significance! It's the blanket that Barry Sr. was to be buried in just a few day's later. I was honored that Barry suggested we should take a picture with it. Rest In Peace,Big Barry.
Thanks to Maurice for making sure he got the shot. And thank you Barry,for being the friend and Brother that you are.

Born Free Weekend

Had a real good time at the Born-Free chopper show last weekend.forgot my camera at home.the 68' Sportster's new owner,Rick,from Canada,came down for the weekend to attend the show and ride his bike in the California sun..his buddies Reilly and Shawn accompied him as well. We managed to find a bike for Reilly to to ride as well. The best part was taking these guys through some L.A. traffic and seeing em' split lanes for the first time!priceless! I nabbed these pics of us riding into the show off Mark Kawakami's sure was nice to see the Sportster riding down the freeway.I know Rick was lovin' it. All in all,a great weekend!

It's only a mtter of time

the cool thing about this picture is that it wasn't staged.we were selling some goodies at the Long Beach swap this weekend. I turned around and saw Diego burning up the track on his racer he just pieced together.
how many of do the same thing in the garage,mocking up new projects and such.I know for a fact I've mocked up and tore down more bikes than I've actually put together.the swap was kinda dead,but it's beat a day on the golf course any day.
