About once every six months, Pelican Parts, a well known place to get mostly German car parts, holds a cars and coffee meet at a mall in Palos Verdes, California. I got to this late and did not get pictures of a lot of the awesome stuff that was there, but here is what I […]
Seriously I have no idea what is supposed to be happening here, apart from the obvious. Strangely enough, the one image with words in English makes even less sense than the rest. I happened upon these during some trip down the obscure bike rabbit hole. At first I had just one image, but I hunted […]
Van Nuys Blvd used to be the place to cruise in the San Fernando Valley north of L.A. For a long time it went away, but now its back ever 3rd Wednesday night all summer long. Some of these are from my cell phone (LG G5), some from an old and nearly dead Pentax digital point […]
I just wrote this story for RideApart, but had a bunch of pictures I didn’t use and didn’t want to go to waste.

By the time you read this U-Pick-Parts and Aalden Brothers in Sun Valley will have shuffled off to the great big trash heap in the sky. Between the all import lot where you could always find weird French and Italian cars, and the everything lot (no kidding, even boats, semis, RVs and motorcycles) next door, […]
The bosozoku style of Japanese custom bike is so far out there, the function of the bike as a motorcycle starts to suffer due to the fashion of attaching crazy fairings, exhaust pipes, tall tail seats, lights and horns. In many ways it is like the so called “post card punks”, the kids you used […]
