It's pretty cool having such talented friends.

I've known Dakota for a long time and he's always shredded.  It's wild seeing him go from the little kid at the park to one of the gnarliest BMX dudes on the planet.  As for Mark, aside from being a rad photographer/skater/handsome dude, he also make really cool little videos (including my Born Free  video last year). So I was especially stoked to see these two link up for this cool little edit for our friends at Stance.

Keep killing it guys.

 oh yeah, check out Dak's part in Cult's Talk is Cheap video and prepare to have your mind blown.

blogger talkers..

 Mike Tubbs started this podcast series called Chopper Prophets which he created earlier this month and it's starting to pick up speed. He's already got a few interviews up with dudes like Larry Pierce and Caleb Owens. To be honest, I was a little apprehensive when he told me the name of it simply because to me the word "prophet" implies someones better or above everyone else (when the truth is we're all just insecure nerds trying to convince ourselves we're not), but once I talked to Mike he made it clear its the farthest thing from that...basically he's really interested in what happens outside of the garage and how we even got there in the first place. My little interview went up last night and it's full of me saying "like" while trying to be interesting.

Check out my trainwreck and all the other podcasts Mikes done at -

steer clear...

Chase asked me to make some steer-stops for his extended 47 Indian girder he's going to be mounting to his revised Shovel. His frames a little raked out so they had to be a little tall and since this part doesn't exist on Ebay, I was able to freestyle it. A couple tabs and a little cast finishing and it almost looks like it could have been...well, maybe?

boats n hoes....

Hit the boat races at Irvine Lake last week. First time in 20 years since the last races because of an out of control boat killing somebody. So much killer stuff to see just walking around the pits...guys yanking the gnarliest motors out of these boat and pulling them completely apart, inspecting and slapping them back together fairly quickly. The classic drag and race boat area was pretty rad too, lots of local history around here as far as vintage boat racing. If you ever get a chance to see check it out.

ATR in Europe

The moons aligned and some how between personal life and my chopper life I am able to make it over the pond to Europe. We will have a booth with some pegs and merch at The Castle Run in Denmark, Kustom Kulture Forever in Germany, and the Jokers Show in Sweden. The biggest bummer is that Jason isn't able to go because his wife has a bun in the oven and Lil' Tyrone is due right around the same time. If you are going to be at these shows please cruise by and say howdy. Thanks to Keith, Rob, James, Patrick, Mattias, Mike, Dan, Arie, Dean and everyone else that's gonna help my dumb American ass out.

Jeff Hanneman

Dead at 49, cause liver failure... Not the biggest metalhead but the dude wrote Angel Of Death & Raining Blood. He was the backbone of Slayer and was still a punk rocker.


Gonna be sprinkling some more pegs in the store as we finish them, got a batch up in there now.  Slightly new packaging looks fast but I can guarantee you they're slow as shit.
