I still love this bike!

Mitch Allread's 60/66 Pan/Shovel from December 200 IronWorks!This bike rules! Perfect lines all around. Check the way the exhaust follows the frame down and all the speed holes. Somehow they're everywhere but not over done. Balance, perfection!

Garage Co. Customs...

It's become a required tradition to stop by GarCo. on the way to Sturgis every year and as usual it's great to see Larry and Spencer..those guy's have always got some cool shit going on as shown above!! If your ever in the Birmingham, AL area do yourself a favor and stop by there, who knows if your early enough Larry might treat you to a Booberry muffin from Bojangles LOL!!!! Definitely Roadside Marty approved!!!!

Two cool muhfugga's!!!!!!

Ever wonder who builds the cool bikes you see in the CCI catalog? Well wonder no more..Mr. Rich Fulk, Product Line Manager at CCI, got tired of me bothering him to check out my bike while in Sturgis this year and finally let me snap a pic of him on it! Maybe a little of his and Kirk's incredible talent will rub off on me a little!
Mr. Kirk Taylor wondering how he ended up in a photo with a loser like me!!! Thanks guy's, it was a pleasure hanging out with the both of you...wish we had more time!! Roadside

They're coming to get you!

 Oh shit! I just found this picture in my filing cabinet. This is an outtake from a cover shoot for the never to materialize "Jeff Clayton and the Braineaters" E.P.   Way back in the early nineties  I was living in Charlotte, NC and playing drums for a band called the Furys.(that's me on the right) That's Furys guitarist Suave Robbie(pronounced swahvay rahbay) on the left. Anyway , we came up with the idea to do a project with Jeff from Antiseen(pictured center) that was gonna be a halloween release 7" feauring a song Robbie wrote based on the Nazi submariner zombie classic film "Shockwaves"(hence the outfits) and a cover of Skulls by the Misfits on the B side. It was gonna be all limited edish colored vinyl collector like with a Lindsay Kuhn silk screened cover. Jeff's wife at the time,Dee, took the photos. I remember standing in their front yard that evening on Central ave(a rather busy four lane street) dressed like Nazis, soaking ourselves with the garden hose(for that underwater zombie effect)with people driving by with a definite "What the fuck?" look on their faces. Priceless!  I guess it was a couple days after the photo shoot and  Jeff and Robbie got into an argument at the record store they worked at or something like that and the whole project got scrapped. Youth wasted on the young!......Alvarez

It's in the DNA!

My mom circa 1964 leaning on my Uncle Gary's  Model A.
 My uncle was the major influence on me as a kid as far as hot rods and bikes was concerned. He taught me a lot about working on mechanical things and also about something he called "bo-legged women." He went through tons of rides from A-bones and Deuces to Willy's and even a Hemi or Camaro here and there. Sadly this is the only remaining photo of any of his rides. Gary is still kicking. His current rides include a '27 T roadster,  '51 F-1 gasser pickup and a 400 Pontiac powered hot-boat. Gearhead for life!......Alvarez

Biker Flash

I started doing some paintings based off of old biker tattoo designs from the 70's.
 This one is after a Don Nolan design. I was thinking of running off some standard 11"x14" prints for 20 bucks or so if anyone is interested.....................Alvarez

Big Josh...

Big Josh and Matt FINALLY made it to th
e Smokeout and I can firmly say I don't think it will be their last!!! Josh has been around the scene ever since his early teens and it shows because some of his builds are enough to make me jealous!!! He keeps threatening to come down to Daytona for Willie's show but who knows...maybe this post will piss him off enough to prove me wrong LOL!!!! As for Matt I guess we will still keep him around too...Roadside
