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.

Braap on Braap… MotoLady hoodie over tshirt! It’s like a motorcycle apparel russian nesting doll, haha. 

FYI, I’ll have more hoodies soon, and still have a few tshirts left. If you want to buy one before my new ecommerce shop is done, email me at alicia (at) themotolady.com. Thanks to Wolf for being my model.

Some shots of Jeff Wolf (of Wolf Designs) working on his XS650 chopper at the shop in Ventura, CA. The amount of effort put into all the little details like frame gussets makes this a very unique bike… can’t wait to see it done!

Behind the scenes shots from Lanakila's shoot yesterday for her ongoing project the Women's Motorcycle Exhibit (website). She creates portraits of real women who ride, showing their personalities, styles, and passion for motorcycling through medium format film photographs.

The owners of Trophy Motorcycles (vintage European moto shop in San Diego- website), Isaac and Tim, were kind enough to lend out two vintage Triumph desert sleds for the shoot. Isaac picked me up in the AM and we drove out to Temecula in his classy Ford truck.

The drive was lovely, and I can’t thank him enough for taking time away from the shop to let me ride a rad old bike in the photographs for Lana. It was a 1970-ish, with right hand shift, a hair thin clutch sweet spot, geared for dirt, and no kill switch. The kicker was definitely a tricky one for me- everything is a learning experience with motorcycles (one of the things I love about them). Between that and the clutch, it took me a minute to get used to it and everyone got to watch me kick it over about 150 times total. Super cool bike though, I only rode it in the dirt for maybe 20 seconds and got a little weeee moment turning it around (not on purpose, haha).

Back to the above photos- I personally love the one of Lana flashing all her film like an alleyway black-market watch peddler… she’s got color in one pocket and black and white in the other. It was nice to see a friend from Oregon; I might not miss the weather but I do miss my peeps. 

Stay tuned for the photos- I’m beyond excited to see them.

Heads up (hahaha-oh my god I make the worst jokes)- Jeff Wolf is letting you steal this amazing custom pinstriped Biltwell Gringo retro full face (size small) helmet from him for $250.

Wolf is located in Portland, and if you’re interested in this or his work in general (it’s awesome) you should check out the Wolf Designs facebook page

We are fortunate to live so close to a beautiful place such as the Columbia Gorge- lovely winding roads that lead to beautiful viewpoints of the Pacific Northwest. Today Wolf came over after work on the CB550 and our arrival at Crown Point was timed perfectly for one of the best sunsets I’ve seen this summer. 

Had my first welding lesson Friday night at Bridge City with Jeff Wolf (thanks man!) and did alright I guess. First weld was ok, next few were kind of shit while I was playing around, then I started getting better. I’m most proud of the shark fin weld (pictured above). 

It was a rather lovely day- Chris, Joel, Wolf and I were hanging out when it dawned on us that there were dirtbikes for riding outside. Next thing you know…

I did some riding too… but I wanted to get photos of their hooliganism. Get these two together and well- Chris and Joel had a lot of fun helping me get the photos I want. Joel launched his bike pretty close to me after a wicked slide. Luckily he is a great rider and I am light on my feet. 

It was a fun day.

4k Giveaway Helmet Paint by Jeff Wolf

The other day I posted a preview photo of Heidi Cormier's custom helmet from the 4k Facebook Giveaway, promising better ones would come later. Welp, here they are.

Heidi specified black and gold as her two colors, and I relayed that to the talented Jeff Wolf when I gave him the medium Icon Airmada helmet. 

Remember the MotoLady 4k Facebook Giveaway with the custom painted Icon Airmada helmet?
Here’s a preview photo of winner Heidi Cormier’s custom pinstriping and lettering design by Jeff Wolf. Damn that’s a good looking helmet.
