Vicious Cycles Biker Movie

I’m not sure what the story behind this “Biker” movie is… but it’s effin’ hilarious.

Acme Choppers: The Flying Limey

Acme Chopper’s Flying Limey was my absolute favorite bike at the New England Motorcycle Expo this year. Low slung, tough stance, looks fast standing and pure tits all around. Chris and I are definitely taking a bit of inspiration from this for the low slung XS650 we’re going be building in the future. Check out […]

Joey’s EDR Scoot

Joey (Old Sage from the JJ) checks in with progress pics of his bitchin’ El Diablo Run scoot. This is one tough looking bike, but definitely built with function in mind – check out the knapsack rack above the headlight, that’s definitely going to come in handy on the EDR run. Lots of really nice […]

Simply said, Bill Mize builds some sick fucking choppers. I really dig the green chopper he built… actually I really dig all the choppers he’s built. Can’t wait to see more from him in the future.

Check out the bitchin’ ride Max Schaaf just built for Scott Pommier. This bike is absolutely beautiful -  a work of art if you will. From the paint to the pipes to the stance - just stunning. Congrats to both those guys for a job well done. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a full fledged […]

VentureOne 3 Wheeled Hybrid Vehicle

    
When talking about old versus new, it’s pretty obvious that old rules the roost on this site. However, that doesn’t mean that mean that I don’t have a deep appreciation for new technology (and in fact am a bit of a gadget/computer geek myself). That’s why this fandangled new vehicle caught my eye. Obviously its […]

Garage Built Motorcycles

I’m digging the website the guys over at garagebuilt.com have put together. While the design might not be slick and the audio on every page can be a little annoying, content is king and they have a ton of it. Lots of great pics of scoots they put together (including shots of the actual build […]
