this is the latest bike that i've
built. joe dynamo gave a doner bike
to start with. mike davis and him
had a bare knuckle, last man standing
battle for the turned down fork legs,
made way back and scored by josh at standard.
joe walked away victorious. some argue
that joe was pumped up on roids and mikes
coors was spiked with ludes.
joe is a good dude and let me do what
i wanted. the bates seats, lee pedals,
linkerts, vl springers were boxed up and
shelved.(wish he would have forgot
about that box)
In the end i wanted to keep it.
no shit. but joe and i went down to
the hof brau and i smothered my loss in
dipped turkey sandwiches and gravy.

May your glass be ever full May the roof over your head be always strong, And may you be in heaven Half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

jon's 55

jon rode his pan that
i built for him
down from portland to bornfree.
it was cool to see the bike all
loaded up and dirty. of course
i forgot to take a photo...
Yesterday my uncle asked me
about the bike... he had seen the
tank unpainted and wondered how
it looked painted. so i told him
i would post a photo.

Chris finished his bike a few
days before born free. HE doesn't
have the terrible habit of referring
to his bike as she or her... just "my shovel"
or the bikes name..."the crystal myth".
I"m proud of Chris and the work he put into
this thing. Like so many of you probably do and
are doing he chiseled away at it...
in a dimly lit small garage, parts strewn about the
floor and a steady diet of weedeater and electric
wizard spilling from the boom box.
I helped where i the frame
and was happy to be able
to do the paint.
Our friend the Anonymous Walrus happened to
be paddling by the night of the first firing and
she sent the photos below my way.
