Spot Check: NYC Garages

Went to check out The Snakehole and Moto Preserve where John and Brandon build and work on their bikes. Looking forward to getting on the road with these dudes when the weather warms up.

Winter makeover

little cosmetic makeover this winter. Putting together some 4" over tubes along with a brand new powdercoated 21. Throwing on a fresh Avon speed master. Also a little CV carb top from biltwell and a brass porthole timing cover from LCF fab. Working on painting the new tank now then having some subtle flames pinstriped before I clear it. Last but not least I spent the money on Joker Machine controls. Waste of money, sort of. But they are the cleanset, smoothest controls in my opinion. Keeping these forever. Pictures to come when I finish the rebuild...

Scumbaggery in China

China is amazing. There are epic skate spots, cheap chronic, street monkeys, and insane traffic everyday. The Chinese are much like the Koreans in terms of motorcycles. They will weld or build anything in order to earn a living on their bikes. That bottle of booze is called Bijoe. It costs 50 cents. It tastes like brake fluid.
