Real Outlaws


There are bikers and there are outlaws. So who's who and how do you tell the difference? Well first off, they have to have an authentic Outlaw Name. This will always help you identify a true outlaw. Be ware of outlaws with electric starts, billet aluminum, and designer jeans! These are most likely imposters that have come across this site and are using a name that is unwaranted!

History Lesson


The Rumi Sport 125 was revealed at the Milan Fair of 1951. Simple shiek lines and the 8hp engine offered 100km/h performance. The motor, a two-stroke 125cc twin also used in Moto Rumi’s scooters. This bike was famed for its smoothness. Enthusiast would balance an old threepenny bit on the crankcase and rev the engine: the coin invariably stayed upright. In the early 1960s, the Bergamo-based company regrettably failed, and founder Donnino Rumi returned to his other loves, art and sculpture. Ahh a little knowledge to get all these boobs off your brain.

Iphone Photographer



I took this picture with my phone. Crazy Apps these days that are damn near photoshop at your fingertips. Oh and this is the latest sissy bar mock up. I think this is the shape I want. Time to bung it up and mount that sweet face!

Party Permit


Went down to DMV this morning and decided i would get legal and take the written test. Damn some of those questions seemed tricky. I probably should have grabbed a booklet to see what I need to know. I gave it a shot and I missed 4 which is the max before you fail...phewww  PARTY TIME!

Tube Bender


Looks like we got a new addition over at the shop. Josh and Shawn were installing a bad ass tube bender today when I got over there. I guess its time to start bending and creating!

MORE Bash!



Here are some more pics that we shot on Jason from Revolution Mother's Camera. Awesome wide angle Nikon!

The Bash!


Working on bikes Friday morning trying to get out to Lake Skinner. I was in the truck with Jason, due to my bike not being done. Grabbed a bunch of 18 packs and hit the road. Took some photos and partied with Sailor Jerry(the rum). Good times out at the lake. Plenty of drunk people trying to jump their rigids, ride mtn bike trails and burnouts until they would fall over. We ran into Lulu' Ribs and Snow cones, which was a lake Skinner hot spot. Kareoke and plenty of live entertainment. Shawn got a free tow behind from the Knuck. Oh yeah and the World's Drunkest Indian was there staying true to the name. Good Times!

Shop Necessities...



The Creature Bottle opener is a collectors piece that is a must in every shop. I think they are pretty rad, so I had to spread the love. Mount it to your tool chest and go grab some cold ones so you can get some serious work done on your project! You can pick them up here and they will come right to your door! Utility Board Supply

Hooters Girls?


"I can tell these girls have good souls...cuz they have great titsssssss!," Quote combo that I must accredit to SD and Chuck. 2 awesome pick up lines combined in one. On another note, these are the hooters girls of playboy.. I want to know what dirty winghouse these girls work in, cuz all I have seen in Hooters the last 5 years are gilrs that have no business cramming there junk into nylons and orange booty shorts.
Here is what is working these days, all jankie and weathered:

Semi Sweets Update




Well I have worked out most of the bugs. Getting a new oil pump and mag gear without advance on Wednesday. I won a blue chicago pedal on ebay today, now I need to come up with a tank idea and get a peanut done to give Semi her own sweet style.

STYLE POINTS



I am learning fast, that if you are going to be remembered in the bike world. You have to have some style. Some prefer to be remembered for good and some for.... well you can see here. Is that Harley Davidson Panties?

Party Trikes!




Came across these old bits of history and had to keep them in rotation. Choose your weapon, I would run any of these and just give everyone the bird when I am trying to split lanes with a trike! Who is that chick in shorts pullin wheelies? God bless her soul!

Eastern Magic


What a waste of good beer... well beer. Pretty sweet trick, just rather he practiced on something else.. Maybe Jersey kids? Keep your kung fu hand strong, never know when you will need to open a beer or 5! 

THE BASH!


CHECK IT OUT! 

This should be a pretty awesome event. I need to get the Vallejo Pre-unit running strong before next weekend. Work out all the bugs so I can try and do some burnouts and donuts in the dirt! Oh and a motorcycle license would probably be a good idea for the ride down there...

Debut Test Run!!

video
After pounding, banging, tweaking, I finally got Semi-Sweets out on the road. Timing seems off on the Lucas, because it was running hot and not too smooth. None the less, it was cool to get her out on the road. Still plenty of work to do on her, but looking forward to cruising around this spring and summer!

Starting Point


So I tore down the Vallejo Pre unit last night to do some final touches. Going to put in a solid 8 hours today. Checklist: Build top motor mount, finish sissy bar, install seat bungs, rear tank mount, put on primary drive, gas her up and see if the brakes stop me... All ina days work.. hopefully it goes pretty smooth.

CHAMPIONS!


After all that hard word you are presented your trophy and you go in for the kiss.. Looks like she has more than just a good "stroke." What a loving individual...

THE DESERT RACER




Actors Steve McQueen (R) and Bud Ekins (L) in 500-mile cross-country race across the Mojave Desert.

If you have never seen this movie, go find it and watch it. And if you have and you are a collector than I am sure you know all about this remake by Metisse Motorcycles. Steve McQueen’s most famous motorcycle has been recreated by the Rickman Brothers, legendary themselves within the moto fraternity. Just 300 examples of the Desert Racer will be built, by hand, and retailing for £13,000 (US$18,000) a pop. The gearbox and engine are period Triumph TR6, with a single Amal carb, set in a Mk III M├ętisse frame. Forks are 35mm Cerianis with over seven inches of travel: BSA yokes position the handlebar behind the steering stem for better control. Wheel rims and exhausts are chromed, and the rear shocks are authentic Girling reproductions. What a Sweet repop!



Summertime...


TIP: Remember confidence is key. Don't let society tell you what's sexy and what's not.... Captain Handsome giving the ladies a preview!

EXCITEMENT


Who says you need porn back in the 70's to really turn it up? Red sneakers and a green apple is what really does it for me!

Fork Project



I am running a set of 68 forks with outer springs. I chopped the springs and had the fork tubes done by Franks. Speaking of Franks, SUPER FAST, very professional and great quality(Plug). Now I have started shaving the bottom tubes for a clean look. I am going to finish sanding and then have them chromed. Also I bought Harley "Nightster," shrouds to run a cleaner sleeker look. I will post pics when they are all finished.

Maxim UK for Men


So I have come to the conclusion that Maxim UK is hands down better than what we are offered out here in the states. God Bless those British Bikes and Beautiful Brawds!

Geared Shoes


I just picked up a pair of these a couple weeks ago: Vans Shoes brings you their Syndicate Series with the Bay Area native Max Schaaf, a pro skater and motorcycle building phenom. Check out the canvas with top notch leather and fire-proof suede! They include custom badging on the side’s and tongue along with gold eyelets as well as handle bar grips in matching colors.

Vallejo Pre Unit











My 1st bike project: 1960 Pre Unit with Duplex Frame. Had a pretty good start when I picked it up. Just a lot of fine tuning, grinding, welding, compromising, etc. Pretty much everything you have to do to make it all fit. Still need to make top motor mounts, sissy bar, license plate frame, electrical, and weld in seat bungs. Should be on the road by this weekend. Late nights after work to get this Vallejo Sweet Face cruisin down the road. Special thanks to J Roth, the muppets, and the Chino guys for all the help/tips. The Gummy Zombie brought an old beat up rear fender back to life for me.
