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!

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.

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!

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!

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
"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:

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!

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...

If you started with the Hosoi Hammerhead deck,now its time to get laced up! These recently released limited Hosoi sk8-hi's are the real deal. Soft leather and real comfort right out of the box. I just picked mine up yesterday. Grab some at Utility Board Supply .

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!

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.

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 Métisse 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!

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.
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.
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.
