'55 Chevy 210 Post. Back Then, The Middle Bit and Now.



 Gene and his car back in the day.












 When I owned it in London in 2005.





As it is now in Norway.



I owned this bloody fantastic car in London about 10 years ago now. I bought it in Texas, shipped it to LA, got it registered and drove it around California for a couple of weeks then shipped it back to the UK. I had it for about a year but found it quite a handful on the London streets and in the crap English weather, so I sold it to Runar in Norway. It is still to this day the only car I have ever regretted selling. Runar sends me updates once a year and it always breaks my heart. He has poured a lot of love into it which is a really good thing and I am very happy it went to a good home.....sort of. Runar found some great pics of the car taken back in the day with Gene, it's Texan owner.

DicE Party - Yokohama, Japan.


For Sale: 1941 Knucklehead Survivor.







I am selling this 1941 Knucklehead survivor chopper on behalf of a friend.
It was built in in the late 1960's in San Diego, California.

It has a freshly rebuilt motor and trans and new tires, the rest of it is untouched since 1974. Everything is polished and chromed on the engine! The engine cases are chrome, transmission case/kicker cover is chrome, lifter blocks are chrome, Linkert M74B is chrome carb and rocker boxes...all chromed in back in the day. It also has a raked 1941 Knucklehead frame with molding and OEM extended springer.

It's a very cool bike and it runs and rides very nice.

*SOLD*

FOR SALE: '75 Shovel Chop.












Up for sale is my much loved '75 shovel. The bike originally was built by Andy at Pangea and was a show bike called the Zion Express. After the bike did the show circuit he changed it up into the chopper you see here. I bought it from him a couple of years ago and we made and fitted the mid controls and the modified drag pipes. It was a dark red colour with black flames back then. I got Sonny Boy to paint it all black and put an old mermaid decal on the tank that had a coat of clear applied over the top. 1 year later I got Sonny to remove the decal and paint the winged Harley logo that you see here, he did all of that by hand, amazing! I found the dual seat stored in the back of the bar enterprises warehouse. Its a brand new 70's survivor. I had to modify the sissy bar to get it all to fit right then re-chromed it. Rear pegs are fitted and it's a good two up bike. S&S Super E carb and vintage air cleaner. Pullback handlebars from Pangea. Front end is a shaved 4" over 39mm with single Harley disc brake. Sportster headlight and visor. 19" mag wheel on the front and a 16" on the back. Both shod with excellent Continental tires. Rear brake is from a GSXR. Both brakes are fantastic. I have owned too many bikes with either a front spool hub or bad drum brake and with this bike it's an amazing feeling being able to stop on a dime. It has a primary belt drive with standard Harley clutch mated to a 4 speed gearbox, kick only. It starts first kick every time. It's been put together really well and runs very strong. It needs nothing, just get on and go. I've ridden it everywhere with never any troubles. Fast, comfortable and a real joy to own. Title is a clear California '75 Harley. Looking to get $10k.

Last Saturday Night, for One Night Only. SLC, Utah.









On Saturday night Dice Magazine and Bolts Action teamed up with Super Top Secret to launch Issue 58. 
Salt Lake came out in full force and we threw one hell of a party. We asked Andy from Pangea Speed to help me out with "Chopper Challenges", a series of games(old and new) to get the crowd participating and see how high we could raise the bar. We started with the Slow Race, then the 2X4 Challenge, Pin The Mustache on the Hipster, Chopper Piñata, and the grand finale was the Launch Ramp contest which came down to two dudes who both went about 40 feet out on their sporties! 500 people lining the alleyway of Super Top Secret and no one got hurt, no fights, and the cops didn't get called, we were literally playing the odds! We moved everyone inside as God's Revolver went on around 10:30 and we started the Mini Ramp Jam for the following 45 minutes, so many local rippers it was insane. 900 PBR's were consumed and 15 cases of Peligroso Tequila, yikes! It was a night to remember and we definitely have big shoes to fill for the next one.
Here are some photos of the evening. The BOSS shots are from Steven Stone, 
 
 
and here are some randoms from all over the place, some showing the room before the kick off.















What a fantastic time. So many thanks to Jake Hobbs, Andy Carter and Jeremy Jones. And too Steve Stone and all at Super Top Secret. Lets do it again!!!!
