Ok chumly, we’ve got another free e-book for gearheads coming your way. It’s dubbed “Modern Toolmaking Methods” and that would be “modern” for 1915. Lots of really cool knowledge being dropped in this one… it’s one of my favorites so far. Dig in and get schooled

Just came across the work of leatherwork David Theobald, who’s churning out some killer seats out of the 513 area code. Clean lines, beautiful details and just well executed all around. Check out his jive at: www.theobaldleather.com
So here’s an update: we’re adding a run/ride to the Greasebag this year. Fucking awesome, I know.
