Lowrider Breakfast Cruise In – August 27, 2017 – Petersen Museum

In conjunction with the High Art of Riding Low exhibit downstairs at the Petersen, their monthly breakfast meet was dedicated to lowriders as well. Hundreds of people and about 100 cars showed up to enjoy some coffee and bagels on the upper deck of the museum parking garage. Perhaps the oddest duck there was my […]

Born Free 8 2016 – Oak Canyon Ranch, O.C., CA

I went to the annual Born Free custom motorcycle show this year, and went full on hipster and shot 35mm film. Because of that, and the shittyness of one of the 2 cameras I was using, some of these pictures really look like they are from 40 years ago. Enjoy this massive photo gallery dump. […]

Bosozoku Bike Update – Vote Early Vote Often!

Got the email today that the online voting for the Deus Ex Machina Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off 2015 has started.

…And It Begins

Thanks to PJ Riley (drag racer, Suzuki expert, all around great guy) and Venture County Motorsports I am now the owner of a low mileage, dusty and crusty, 1980 CM400T. This is really the perfect bike for the Bosozoku build, as I’m assuming due to taxes or licensing, most of the Japanese gang custom bikes […]

I’m Jumping into the Deep End – Deus Bike Build Off

Long story short – I have entered the Deus Ex Machina Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off and started a Go Fund Me page for all of you to help me build the bike. Making donations will get you a drink, design input, and/or first dibs on buying the bike afterwards for the build price of […]
