ST @ the Worcester Palladium on 11/13

Shit, I think it was the last show I saw at The Channel in Boston. Looking forward to seeing Mike and the boys here in Worcester. Artwork by the one and only Lance Mountain, stolen from the Lab blog here.

Simple light mount

My buddy Jake finished this sissybar/taillight mount for a rigid evo sporty recently. Really clean.

Finally got the commercial insurance settled for the new space... and a free shelf to hold crap that I should get rid of. Fab work will be back to full bore status in the very near future.

Couple of bikes...

... that were at the Ralph's Milltown rod show.

Stolen Honda chop

To the person or people that stole this bike, it would be best for you to return it and say sorry.

EDIT: Bike found. Thief was smart enough to figure out the foot clutch but was caught riding it through a field. Shawn has his baby back home!

Adam's project...

... with the tank I modified for him. Looking good Adam, keep up the good work!

machined bits

A while ago I received an e-mail from Lee. In this e-mail sent by someone I'd never met, he thanked me for not being an asshat. Well after a few more e-mails bounced back and forth, Lee sent me these pics of some bits he's been machining for his motobike project. Give him a shout at if you'd like him to whip something up for you.

puzzle pieces

14 pieces to make one tank bottom, 15 if you count the tunnel.

Mobile fab work

My buddy Jake set up a mobile shop to do a sissybar/handlebar fab demo for Worcester's art fest "stArt on the street". No rest for the wicked.

Triumph project seat

Scored this West Eagle seat on Craigslust for the Triumph. Is there a style law about running a white seat after labor day?

Absence makes...

... my heart grow fonder. Actually, I always loved this bike. It belongs to a good man and friend though, so that makes it easier to swallow. Pretty cool write up and pics by Bill Bryant on Chopcult. Please don't refer to it as "Jay's shovelhead" anymore, it makes Walter mad.

Thanks Alex!

Alex Pereira of Daily Dose Originals was kind enough to send me this artwork. Thank you so much for the killer work!


Something about holding a file in my hand clears the mind. Focused concentration on this type of "feel" work is always satisfying, watching progress being created with your own two hands.

Caleb's bars

Caleb needed a set of 7/8" stainless narrow mini apes to work with his BSA project. A little cut, knurl, bend, weld, slug, weld, file, sand... well, you get the idea.

Rafter gems

Jake's new tank beginnings

My friend Jake (Barnstorm Cycles) has had to put up with a good ribbing here and there over the stock aftermarket chopper tank he had perched on his knuckle's backbone. To me, it just didn't add anything to the bike, especially since Jake is a hell of a fabricator and welder. Well, he finally started to cut into a junk tank to get me off his case.

Nice Sunday ride to see some friends and peep some bikes. There were a ton of beautiful bikes present but I only had my phone to take pics with.

The Great Frog London

Chris Thomson recently got in touch with me to share what he's been up to at TGF. Got some pretty cool precious metal mashing going on Chris, keep up the fine work.
