A closer look into the lifestyle.

If you’re not a brain dead failed test tube baby experiment, you’ll notice we got ourselves a website makeover. Yup, we hired a top team of scientists, engineers and tech wizards to update the ol’ dot com so now all the skinny pant wearing kids can see our mind blowing content without it being all jumbled up on their fancy schmancy computer phones. Also, I’m told shopping for OSR gear will now be easy, painless and just all around good fun for the whole family. So, instead of a monthly bike feature blog that you all have no doubt grown tired of me not updating, we will add a new “In Focus” feature periodically. That’s a fancy way of sayin’, we will post something, sometime, that hopefully you can dig. Could be in-depth, hard hitting, investigating reporting of some stupid motorcycle related nonsense. Might be on a shop, a show, a bike, a band, a broad, or who the fuck knows what. Focus 1 is a collection of random pictures I took that I don’t hate. You’re-welcome.

focus 2 - Dennis Johnsons ‘42

This was the first full feature on the old blog. It was lost in the either, so I thought it would be cool revisit. Coincidently, this ’42, owned, built and ridden by Tucson’s Dennis Johnson was also picked as “Best Chopper” of HNP18. Basically, story goes Dennis acquired a raked out, metallic green adorned Knuckle head chopper in 2013. In no time he took the rake and ugly out of it, esthetically bringing it to pretty much what you see today. After a quick trip through the desert to LA for some little “get together” called ride free or something, and that was enough for the ol’ wore out motor. Luckily Dennis was apprenticing for a local well respected motor builder, and was able to then go through literally every nut and bolt on his machine, including a total motor and trans rebuild. Dude has and continues to rip out a bunch a miles on this thing, and to top it off Dennis is one of the nicest, down to earth people you could run across. This ‘aint no rich kid Knuckle here. Just the story of a guy who worked his ass off to build, ride and live the dream.

Focus 3 - Meet Monroe

Meet Monroe.

Monroe is a 1973 shovel in an old Denvers frame. My man, partner in crime, “Tiny” Romero’s main stick. Tiny and I go back a ways, and it was him and I who started putting on little rides and get togethers that ultimately turned into what is now the WORLDS GREATEST CHOPPER SHOW, Howl N Prowl! Well, ok…maybe not really the worlds greatest, but I’m really proud of the show we created and really proud that he’s my best bud.  Hope you like the pics I snapped of his pride and joy, Monroe. Keep it “nasty in the pocket” Tiny!
