despite rumors...

...Phil Collins is not actually my dad...

I'm actually the love child of Joan Collins and Bootsy Collins, which explains my good taste and looks and possibly my sexual prowess...

Yokohama Harbor 2006

I received an email with this pic from Shige after my truck arrived in Yokohama for the Mooneyes HRCS show. It's my '38 Ford pickup "Limelight" sitting with two of Indian Larry's bikes, Cole Foster's "Special K" bike, and Jeff Decker's Crocker.

Old Trucks Don't Die...

my '59 Apache when I first got it on the road, mid 90s, at the Mooneyes open house. It got rearended on the way home that day, I rebuilt it, and then some faggot ran me into a center divider a couple years ago. In the process of getting it better than ever now, just rebuilt the front end and reupholstered the seat...

Lost & Found

my old '40 Ford pickup just popped up on the internet, in paint, but otherwise looking as it did the day I sold it. I built this sometime in the mid 90's...dig the deluxe hood and grille, 2 hoods were used to achieve this, my friend Harvey helped me tackle the job.

being short doesn't always suck...

1971 Ford wheelie van, 302 V8, Chopped and shortened wheelbase. I just traded some early ford stuff for this....

Steve Buchannan

Steve called a couple months ago asking if I could re-do two of his original bates seats for him, one for his knuckle build and one for his Panhead he was doing for BF4. He chromed the pans and dropped them off. I never saw the bike until the day of the show. He did a great job. I stole this pic...
