Always Cut-Rate fans, from the label though the to the bikes. Here’s Oliver Jones’ Born Free 6 builder showcase video, an overview of his take on bikes and the show, and a preview of his entry, a very mean looking Shovel (also: interesting soundtrack choice with the Keef).
Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…
Featured by The Selvedge Yard a couple days ago, the recent onslaught of late winter snow and generally awful weather here in the PNW has warranted a repost. Old American Iron, backroads bars and friends, everything about this say summer, which can’t come a moment too soon. Great work by Imogene and Willie putting this together.
The One Moto Show is coming up quickfast for the PNW, but the midwest, mired in a deep freeze, has got something going on too… on Feb 22nd the best builders from the area showcase a wide range of bikes in Milwaukee, and judging from the vid there’s gonna be nothing but gold. Also, it must be pointed out much of a ruler Jeff Wright is, FTWCO all day.
This short doc features the works and ethos of Bixente, the owner of Bixente Moto, a full custom garage based Biarritz France. Everything is dialled in this shop, from vintage motos through bicycles and furniture… if you’re like us and prefer your goods to be old and weathered, this vid is a ruling way to start your Monday.
‘She was an accident waiting to happen. 600 pounds of American coke fired iron, riding on weather-checked English rubber. Cracking femurs or rupturing internal organs were her specialties, and she had done so on more than one occasion. The Iron Lung, a 1991 Harley Sportster road-racer, was a vision of what never was, in response to a question that was never asked.’
Awesome video and edit from Icon, killer narration, and one mental Sporty… what I’d give to lap that beast around the track a few times… or take it to the street.
‘The One Motorcycle Show is not about rules or pre-conceived notions because their is no right or wrong way to build a bike. It’s about motorcycles with a purpose and a story. It’s the opportunity to get rare, weird, old, new, and all around amazing bikes together in one spot. It’s one-off concepts, and pristine-better- than-showroom classics. It’s the old and new generations getting together to celebrate the One motorcycle. We’re a community on the search for the ultimate truth of mechanism and it’s essential one-ness.’
February 7th-9th in Portland! 84/85 boys roadtrip down south is the plan. Oh yeah and great vid by See See!
