Michèle Ebeling aka 'Mitch' the Motorcycle Queen sent all these awesome photos of herself to Frank Charriaut of the Mot’Art journal with a mini bio back in 2010. She’s seems to be a very fascinating individual, having appeared in Iron Maiden & Duran Duran music videos plus some. 

I`ve been riding bikes since the age of 17… I was a singer in a band called `Look Back in Anger` during the 80`s and also lived with Billy Duffy of The Cult for 5 years.. I sang as their backing vocalist on the `Dreamtime` album.. Rode my Triumph in various pop videos, including Iron Maiden and Duran Duran, and featured with my bikes in several Motorcycle / Women’s mags. Worked for a while as a record plugger and in also in `Johnsons`…

'Merica themed photos of a pretty girl and a motorcycle (hey, sometimes they're worth posting… let me just stop the haterade train before hand) from Seaweed and Gravel (blog) by photographer Kevin Roche. 

Working with the infinitely talented Gregor Halenda was an absolute treat- and before all the photos come out for the joint gear review project with Silodrome, I wanted to share this shot from lighting tests that we were particularly fond of. 
While you might not recognize his name, you’ve seen his work. In the Ducati model catalogue, Rev’It’s campaign with Ducati, and so much more. Your eyes will thank you for hopping over to his website for a look-see- gregorhalenda.com.
Huge thanks to Gregor for making this work on a tight schedule before a big trip, James McBride for making things happen from across the globe, and Bill Blacke for bringing his Guzzi down for the shoot.

The Rust Bucket Project: Phase 1

So, I bought this early 60’s BSA frame a couple months ago from a neighbor with the intent to start working on it when the Monster is done. I didn’t post about it because I knew I’d catch a whole lot of flack from people wondering why the hell my Monster has taken so long, and why I’m picking up new projects before the first is done. But let’s face it, if you’re into motorcycles and especially customizing them… you know exactly what is going on here.

It’s got a Harley rear wheel on it, a custom (crappy) hard tail job, and a fair amount of rust. Anywho, since I’ve done all I can do until this week on my Monster, I decided to take the rear wheel off this bad boy and start cleaning up the frame.
