So here I am back home after a few days in the US of A. These are a few pictures from ASR and Crossroads, or at least what I thought was worth shooting or talking about. Loser Machine is a damn cool company and had a killer helmet exhibition going on. My friend Ryan works at Stance, a real cool sock company. Yeah I hear you : " socks ???". Wel let me tell you, the socks are dope and they have some fucking amazing people to back it up. Check 'em out. Matix had a 1970 Skylark custom coupe, the exact same I used to have and stupidly got rid off. I think I might have gotten a tear in my eye watching this one. The skate contest was fun to watch, loads of known and unknown dudes killing the course with Jake Phelps as the most annoying MC you ever heard. Why the hell do people still hire this guy to do the job ? Ain't the Tim O'Connor or SPOT guys much better ??? Seriously ! Check HERE for video of the contest.
I went back to see Meatball today and picked my 8.5" Flanders bars and my Megaphone upswept mufflers. I can't wait to add these on my bike when I get back and see the result. Should look real cool ! I'll post some pics of the final result.
My friend Christian finally got his '61 IWL scooter all fixed up and rides it to work every day. That thing is dope !!! Look at the way that muffler is sitting on the side. Everything about it is original and the patina is just right. No way it should be touched ! FYI : IWL or "Berlin scooter" were manufactured in the southern suburbs of Berlin in the 1950's .
