So in case you missed the other announcements, I’m leaving San Diego for greener pastures- in other words I’m moving up to Ventura (about an hour north of LA) into a bad ass shop / apartment combo and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  Yesterday Jeff Wolf and I did some spring cleaning in preparation for my arrival and influx of more stuff. I brought the Harley Dual Sporty project and my tools up a couple weeks ago, and at the end of this week I’ll be moving in all my… Continue Reading »

MotoLady Siver Piston Exclusive Rings

A closer look at the finished MotoLady + Silver Piston exclusive rings! I’m really excited about this collaboration… the rings are made to order, by hand, in the USA. Steve West (the main man of Silver Piston jewelry) has worked in Atlanta, GA making rings for years now… perfecting his process to produce these sleek and sturdy unique rings. The coins are tediously carved by Shane Hunter in Oklahoma.  Best part? They fit under your motorcycle gloves because of the low profile design. The ‘Indian Head’ Penny rings go for $125- this… Continue Reading »

MotoLady Braap! T-Shirts

Designed by yours truly and Jeff Wolf in kind, the BRAAP tshirts are a little bit retro and a little bit modern. Featuring ‘The Universal Language’ and ‘themotolady.com est 2011’ they were produced to celebrate three years of the MotoLady website and beyond. Jeff was nice enough to model the men’s tshirts for me today. If you want one, you can feel as glorious as Wolf does while you wear yours… practically Super Hero status! I wear my ladies version working in the shop all the time.  While I’m working on the… Continue Reading »

Montgomery Motorcycles, San Clemente

Today I went up to San Onofre and San Clemente to visit my friend Justin who runs the Peanut Butter Coast blog. He’s down from Seattle with his friend Chris on a surfing adventure road trip dubbed ‘The Peelgrimage’. After food, he showed me a cool motorcycle shop he had stumbled upon, Montomery Motorcycles.  San Clemente, with a small population of some 60k people, caught me off guard with the super cool vintage motorcycle shop. It’s only about an hour from San Diego, but I didn’t know of much going on there… Continue Reading »

Friday night therapy- I’m up in Ventura visiting friends and working on Caroline’s Dual Sporty Project with the talented Jeff Wolf. Last night we spent some time grinding, cutting, and welding. He and I had one welding lesson before, almost a year ago… I put my skills to the test again last night modifying the tank luggage rack I found at a swap meet so it’ll sit on the 360 tank. The practice welds above were much better than the one I did on the rack- so it goes. Time and practice,… Continue Reading »
