..into my garage. The reincarnation is in progress.
By the way- did you see the date for Sideshow 2013 on top of the site?
I hope to be ready with this build in time.

I am in love

Led Sled makes the most heaviest springer forks I ever did see.
Real tough shit. I guess with one of these my crash last year would have been a little different.
But anyway - this is massive and also looking beautiful. Maybe I should use it for my new project?
They come in wide or narrow in the length that is needed. Not legal in Germany yet, but they are working on this and I do not care at all.
If you like this to go and see it at Kustom Korner in Ede, NL, or at www.ledsledcustoms.eu
Oh- they have heavy duty fenders as well. I need one of those too.

Choppers never die.....

About two or three years ago I wrote a column for the German Custombike Magazine about my vision that Choppers never will die out. And I often did use the phrases that there must be a virus that keeps on spreading the Chopper desease, on many occasions.
At the Rockin' Jalopy I shot a photo that shows the sence of my words perfectly. Jesse of the Garage Maniacs is still pretty young, but he is badly infected  by Choppers and as you can see now, obviously highly contaminous.

Bringing out the seed......


I took me a few shots to find the right angle and moment. When I selected the photos I found one with a detail I did not see before. The little bastard knew what was going on. Hahaha. I love it. He is the future.
Too fucking cool. Well done young man, respect!

Garage Maniacs @ Rockin' Jalopy IV

Last weekend in Rosmalen/NL the 4th Rockin' Jalopy. Nice event, nice people, cool rides.

Do you wanna get messed up? No, its just a lame joke. But seriously:
Wannabe Choppers is looking for an apprentice in technics for their shop.
Ricky's business has a master licence in motorcycle technics and is a registered training garage. So you will get the chance to learn from one of the best craftsman and you can make it a real profession with all legal basics in Germany.
Go to their facebook site to find out more:  http://www.facebook.com/thebestmotorcycles

Mario`s new project

video
Mario"Dirty"Sanchez, member of the Cycle Source Magazine staff is resident in Holland since a while. We met him on our party and some other events. Most of his bikes are in the US, so we cant see those in real life. But some have been featured in the Horse and other publications.  He is always busy with more builds.
One project is a 68 model. He just got the engine restored by a man named Cass who runs a shop in Dousman, Wisconsin. Mario did send this proof of live.
It has been untouched form the outside, because Mario does not want it to look fancy now.

networking


NETWORKING!  Thats what the Choppertown Nation and all our activities are about.
Right now this is showing effect for one more time.
The photo is borrowed from Rickys facebook site, shot by Thomas Beeskow. Ricky is showing his famous gastank caps available in the Dock66 webstore now, as all his other products too which are also used on Jacek's new build. And Ricky presents these days his own apperal product, a ultimate working man throusers, the massive Wannabe Choppers Pants in the Harry Damson Speedshop/Berlin and Madeira Drive /Duesseldorf.
Iam not on facebook, but if - I would give all of them a like.
