Sitting at a stop light near my house while running errands today I spotted a group of bobbers rolling past heading toward Downtown Ventura. After stopping by the gas station I rolled down Main Street to see if I could spot them and take some photos… lo! There they were!

Not one, not two, but SEVEN custom bobbers all in one spot. A friend of mine told me they had just been up at See See’s in Portland and that they’re road tripping from Mexico City. Gotta love the Powerplant bike, seriously good looking. 

Born Free 6: The Ugly Ducling

Wandering the parking lot of Born Free 6 a couple weekends ago, I got excited every time I saw a cafe racer, tracker, vintage UJM, and especially Ducati. In a sea of Harley Davidson and unique choppers, they stand out like a sore thumb. Just like this custom Ducati 750SS did, which I dubbed “The Ugly Ducling”.

The good looking open clutch cover, clean body, tidy undertail exhaust and bare tank kept me looking. What… what is going on here? 

Meeting Sofi & Riding Her CB550 Cafe Racer

A couple photos were posted yesterday featuring Sofi Tsingos and I, and her beautiful blue Honda CB550 cafe racer, out in Palm Springs. She was doing a super secret cool video shoot with Misfit Industries and invited me to come hang out. Miss Tsingos only three hours away? Couldn’t miss it.

She even let me take her amazing blue CB550 cafe racer for a spin!

Made some progress on the Dual Sporty project. If you follow my Instagram and Facebook you know some of the smaller behind the scenes details that got us here.

New 18” rear wheel with TKC80 on/off road tire… front wheel will be removed soon for tire swap to match.

Coming soon: belt-to-chain conversion, rear frame hoop, fender chop.

Currently featuring: Burly Brand stiletto rear shocks, Burly Brand cafe seat, Burly Brand scrambler bars, Boyle Custom Moto ‘spot’ air cleaner, Chainsikle low sets

My dude Wolf got workin’ on his XS650 chopper project again last night. Plans were made to have it done by Born Free this weekend, but as happens with building motorcycles, it had to be put on hiatus for a little while. 
Don’t have a lift? Use a cinderblock. Ghetto fabulousness.

Sofi Tsingos’ GT Cafe for Cause Unveil

This weekend in Dallas, TX, the awe-inspiring Sofi Tsingos unveiled the cafe racer build that she’s raffling off for charity at the Gas Monkey Bar n Grill.

Sofi started GT Cafe for Cause to build a bike with her dad who was diagnosed with cancer- her plan is to give all proceeds to cancer research. A noble cause, a beautiful bike, and a wonderful woman. How can you go wrong?

LumiLor Light Paint

This new LumiLor™ Electroluminescent Coating System is pretty amazing. Complicated and expensive, but amazing.

It is not glow in the dark, it’s an actual paint that lights up. Can you imagine riding around with a glowing helmet?

Took the Monster out in my new home base town of Ventura for the first time today to run some errands, made a pit stop at Surfer’s Point to check out the ocean. Why? Because I can!
