Been away working on other projects, but getting back into the swing of things, back to working on some bike projects and getting this site updated. Here’s a few bikes I’ve been staring at over the past few weeks.Moto Art & Pics | Comments (4)
My apologies for the hiatus and the lack of posting, I’ve been juggling a few too many non-moto projects lately and it’s kept me away from the nerd box. I hope to get back soon, but I’m guessing posting will be spotty for the next couple weeks. I have a few personal moto projects in the works - the Acme sportster project I previously mentioned and the FXR is getting a mild refresh. My long term project (which is currently in the planning stages) is new shop space. I’d love to will that into happening tomorrow, but reality is working against me. There are some in-depth articles and reviews in the horizon - I’ve got a handful of them half written - I’m just trying to carve out the time to finish them up. Stay tuned, things might be a little slow around here for the moment, but we’re not going anywhere.November 28th, 2011 by grail21 in Moto Art & Pics | Comments (2)
Decision made. After long deliberations and far too much time sitting on the bench waiting for my schedule to clear, I’ve decided the next iteration of the Sporty will be handled by my boys over at Acme Choppers. You guys are familiar with how they throw down, their vision and attention to detail is well documented on this site. I’ve been a fan of theirs since we met over 5 years ago and started working on the Greasebag together. I’m stoked to work with them on this and let their creativity run free on my quad cam mill, I’m sure the final results will be beyond this world (and certainly beyond my humble fabrication skills). I’ll be carting the bike and my surplus of swap meet finds up to their new shop later this winter and documenting the entire process. Stay tuned for the stoked.KB News, Moto Art & Pics | No Comments

This pic just popped up on Chopper Dave’s blog - anyone have any idea who’s arm it is? That’s the first Knucklebuster tattoo I’ve ever seen. It’s probably the first piece of art I’ve created that’s been tattooed on another person too (at least that I know of). Fucking awesome. I’m guessing the dude with it reads this site - let me know who you are man, I’m way stoked on it.August 5th, 2011 by grail21 in Moto Art & Pics | Comments (3)
Slowly going through the pics. Here are a few from the Friday night Boston Dice Party.

A few years ago, the consensus was that a swing arm bike could never look as good as a rigid. Thanks to a number of talented builders, that viewpoint has definitely changed. Proof of concept does wonders to the creativity of others. These are just a couple of bikes that get me stoked, but there are so many new builds out there proving that it can be done, and done very well.
Apologies for the lack of consistent posts over the past week or so. We’re 2 weeks away from the Greasebag , so as you can imagine, there is lots of final details getting taken care of. If you’re anywhere on the East Coast, (or looking for a nice long ride) you don’t want to miss it, hop on your bike and come rage with us.July 18th, 2011 by grail21 in Moto Art & Pics | No Comments
