PILLION IS ON




I was lucky enough to find this NOS white pillion seat at garage company on my last trip to LA.
We put it on the bike last night.

Went for a ride with Axel today. Surf's pretty messy !
Nice ride though.
The sportster is about to get a facelift. Stay tuned.

CHERRY TRUMPET





One hell of a stylish pre unit custom ! No need for hard tail on one of these ...
I considered puting a bolt on hardtail on my TR5 for a while and then I gave up the idea. I find this kind of look better and better every day.

MIKE V


Mike V, celebrity fan of the Ducks, got a little defensive when some dude tgets his hands on the stick that Scott Niedermeyer tried to give to Mike's daughter.
Someone steals from your daughter, they get what they deserve. Family first...Mike doesn't fuck around.

TR5 ARRIVED


After 2 months on a boat, it has finally arrived. Had to drive 7 hours to go get it but it was well worth the drive.
I got home late at night and had to wait the next morning to start it up. A few kicks and the engine started without a problem. I drove straight off to work with it. I had a smile for the rest of the day. It runs smooth and makes the sweetest noize. I guess my wife will see a little less of now.

MORE CA




After visiting Moore's I drove up to LA to check out Garage Company and look for some parts. I got lost like a first time tourist, it pissed me off but that feeling disappeared when I got there. Sick place, cool owner and I found a N.O.S. white Pillion seat for my TR5 which will match my white solo seat . So stoked !
I'll go back there with a bigger budget next time...

MOORE'S




I had half a day off from work and took the time to go visit Moore's cycle center today. What a spot, and Keith Moore is the coolest guy ever. He really took his time to show me around the shop and chat about the beauties he had in the back of the shop.

WRIGHTWOOD CA 2


WRIGHTWOOD CA






Arrived in LA and drove up to Wrightwood right away for some work. Bought some brews, had a Yodeler burger... I feel like I got the best job in the world...

BASQUE DISCOVERY





I was driving through the Spanish Basque country, in the Pyrenees mountain range and found this little shop by accident. It was closed at the time but I'll have to go back to check it out. Never know what they have in the back...

PARTS GALORE





Found this amazing place the other day. It's mindblowing. Biggest mess I have ever seen, but some intresting stuff amongst the pile of parts.
We managed to find a cool gas tank for my friend Axel's project and a couple good mags from the 50's. They got plenty more but I'll have to go back to dig deeper.

BEER BELLY

CASSETTE DAYS PART 1


As I said before, I will post some of my favourite cassettes once in a while. I love these tapes ! My best music is on 'em, and I have boxes full. Somehow I managed to keep 'em all intact with tracklist and all. When I grew up skating in Brussels we had a tight punk scene and we'd constantly exchange tapes or make comps to trade with friends. This one was given to me by my friend Thomas and named after my love for brewed beverages. It is a great mix of what we'd listen to back then (and still do). Punk as fuck!
