Jeremiah rules!

I gave my trophy at the Hippy Killer show to Jeremiah from Love Cycles for his knucklehead. Not only is it a neat bike with a bunch of cool one off parts, but he rode the fucker all night in the freezing rain from Arizona to be at the show, arriving at 5:30 am the day of, soaking wet. Monday I get a text from him with this pic, homeward bound... awesome!

Long Bikes are the new Bobber... I built a period correct one using leftover handlebars and fence posts and the wassel tank from Ed Roth's first panhead. I primered over that flake though, cause that shit's so '09. The motor is from Irish Rich's weed wacker. I scored it off a dude at the swap that said he traded some Angel Dust to Rich for it back in '68, and how he had the last laugh cause that shit was really just crushed up butterfly wings...I put a stroker crank in it though, cause stock sucks, and now I can run my Linkert on it...Funny thing is I talked to Irish Rich and he said that Angel Dust was the gnarliest shit ever... like dead hooker gnarly. I promised I would find him more if he signed the tank on my long bike before I put it on Tokyo craigslist.

custom seats

I've had lots of requests for custom seats lately. Yes, I can make whatever you want, I do more than production seats for sporties and swingarm shovels. Due to my hectic schedule these seats will take longer to get in your hands and they will cost more than the production ones, but if you are interested in having a one off seat made for your bike, hit me up @oldgoldgarage
