Long time no updates. It’s been all about the ‘65 for the last couple months. A full photo shoot to come this summer, but it’s getting close. Back on the bikes here in a bit.

A couple of us hit up our buddies barber shop The Modern Man  on Saturday and ran into a bridal party as we parked. We heard someone yelling “fuck ya…cafe racers” then he asked if his friends (bride and groom) could take photos on the bikes. It just so happened to be Trey Cool from Green Day. Pretty crazy. We didn’t want to be lame and ask for photos, plus the dudes from the barber shop already beat us to it. 
It’s been slow on the motorcycle front as of late. The ‘65 Impala is now running. We will post a video, so you can here that crazy cam. Estimated 400hp out of the old 327. Should be a fun car.

Goddamned Animals

A couple of Tarantulas are in this band. There are some plans in the works for a video involving guns, motorcycles and women. Seems like some pretty good ingredients for a decent video.

We’ve had a serious lack of updates and a small block chevy is the culprit. Hopefully some of you enjoy car projects because we are deep in one out in the garage.  More to come.

Bell used one of our garage shots at the end of this for the Matte Star. Loving the corner shots from the front of the bike in the video.

A not so motorcycle update, but as mentioned before a couple of us have been distracted with a ‘65 Impala project. The car came with a mid 80’s 305, so we went on a hunt for the motor that is supposed to be in the car. Here is a couple of “before” shots of the 327. We’ve got a large order from Summit Racing that should get this beat up looking block up around 330hp by the time we are done with it. 

More updates on this project to come along with a 550 build.
 

The One Show 2011. Thought I would throw up a shot of James and I from last years show with “The Natural.” It’s changed quite a bit since then.  Couldn’t make it tonight, but looking forward to checking it out tomorrow.

The One Motorcycle Show

This is perfect. James Crowe has been busy and that’s a damn good thing.

finishing up the new one piece throttle/ brake perch prototype for the bmw scrambler.

It took 1 year, 3 months, 1 lost helmet and we finally got our “Tarantulas” Bubba Z from Joe King.

A 1965 Impala has been one hell of a distraction for a couple of us this month, but we did start to tear down a 550 Four. Playing a little clean up then on to welding up some brackets.

finally spent the time to make a cnc program for the levers and perches that i have been making out of 4 pieces in the past, now a solid one piece design. made out of steel for durability and the ability to nickel plate.  these will be available for sale soon, expect a couple different lever shapes and possibly an aluminium version.

Be sure to keep an eye out for some of James’ parts that are soon to be available. Can’t wait.

A group of us headed out last night to hit up the 21 Helmets show at See See Motorcycles. The show was worth heading out in the 32degree weather. We didn’t get shots of all 21, but we got a few.
