Went to the the BLITZKRIEG MACHINES headquarters ( Christian's barn) today, fixed my back tyre, finally put those mufflers on and checked some of the electricity and most importantly drank some DUVEL. I 'm stoked the way these mufflers turned out and the bike is still loud as hell. I would even say it sounds better than before. Those mounting plates are vintage parts sent by Meatball at HELL ON WHEELS. I think I'm pretty close to how I wanted the bike to look like.
Mid January and 20 degrees celcius ! Took the TROPHY for a ride today, checked out the waves. Too big ! Blew my back tyre in a turn 5 miles from home. Close call ! No phone and had to ride back in 2nd gear. Luckily I didn't fuck up the rubber... My son Felix is crazy about the TROPHY and got on his bike too. Christian came by, we took the bike to the barn to fix it, and I finally saw his killer XS 650 ! Talked bikes for a while with a beer ! Every sunday should be like this !!!
SInce my 40 year old record player broke down, I haven't found one I was really into until today I guess. Made of Triumph parts by the "Birmingham institute of art and design". No idea on the price though. Might be a little out of my league.
We were desperate to skate on sunday , so we drove 2.30 hours to Bilbao to find rained out parks in Algorta and Sondika ! Luckily we brought a towel, a broom and a good dose of motivation. We ended up getting good sessions at both parks. Couple beers on the way back and ready for another week of work.
I spent Xmas over at my mom's and found stack of old pictures. Came across this one. We used to skate this spot with our crew every day. It was shit, didn't slide, had a rough ground but it was ours and chicks were hanging out there too. I guess that made us skate there even more... I think I was skating a AIRBÖURNE Steve Schneer in this shot. Good times.
