Buy these NOW!!!!!!

Two really good friends of mine are selling two of their most prized possesions, no not each other, but two of the coolest fucking bikes you will ever see..due to my gross incompetence in working with computers I'm only able to post one of them but if your smarter than me, which isn't that hard you can contact either Big Paul or the lovely Nichole at Bare Knuckle Choppers for more info..NO I already asked if he would trade or take payments, so check your credit report and give them a call NOW!!!!!

Living Legends at Sturgis 2010

And believe it or not..Irish Rich!'s Mondo from Denver's Choppers

This man needs no formal introduction..the one and only... Sugar Bear

I was HONORED to have these guys check out the Chick Magnet as well as allow me to snap a pic of them on it..each one told me what an awesome bike they thought it was and I can't even begin to express how much their words meant to me, I mean it's great when people dig what I build but when you have guys like this saying it, well let's just say it put a lump in my throat and for once I really felt humbled and proud..THANKS for the time!

Catholic Discipline!

The X footage from Decline of Western Civilization I posted a while back got me thinking about this band. The soundtrack to this film was one of my first punk rock music purchases. I had heard of almost every other band on it ,but not these guys. I fucking loved this song and all the great sound bites of French ex-patriate frontman Claude (Kickboy Face) Bessy tearing everyone from new wavers to his own fans a new one! Claude co-founded Slash magazine/records which was probably the first west coast punk rag/label and was responsible for recording and releasing the debuts of bands like X, Fear, The Germs and many other greats from that era.Unfortunately he never got around to getting his own band in the studio so we are only left with this track from the movie and a few live bootlegs.A shame because they were a  spectacular document of the early California punk scene when originality and experimentation was encouraged and before "hardcore" came in and regimented everything to the same look and sound. Claude moved to England in the early eighties (apparently despondent over the election of Reagan) where he worked for the infamous Factory records in Manchester before relocating to Barcelona where he died of lung cancer in1999.
