I will start posting pics of each girl next week. Going out to Riverside today to shoot with Rob Fortier and his 53 Bel Air. Look for pics and a interview in the weeks to come.

The "Other" Mike D

A few months back I drove out to Murietta Ca to shoot with Mike D. I was put in contact with him from Guy at Greasy Kulture magazine. It was a early Saturday morning so it was a easy drive up the 91 to the 15 fwy. Coming down Mike's street there were a few really cool places to shoot and we ended up at this half torn down building. So we set up there and I got my shots. He rode the bike up and down the street a couple times and I was done. Super easy. Thank you Mike for that day. It was a pleasure to meet you. If you haven't already checked it out go get your copy of Greasy Kulture Magazine Issue 14. The article on Mike is in the back and was even written by him. Here are some more shots that were not in the mag.

Joyrides Art Company Bad Betty's

Lorraine - Shovelhead built by Top Shelf Customs
Ashley - Shovelhead built by Mark Nelson
I have a lot of good shots of the JAC Bad Betty's. So stay tuned as I post more. I was going to post pics of the bikes I shot at Hippy Killer Hoedown, but I figured everyone saw them on the other blogs. Personally after this photoshoot I had more interest in going through these photos and posting them.

Joyrides Art Company Lid

So when my friend Jeff came down from Vegas this past Saturday he was telling me about my booth at the Viva Show. My booth lacked front signage so it was hard to find it. I meant to print out a banner for the front but I ran out of time so I had nothing. As Jeff was leaving my house he said he had something for me. He went to his Econoline van and pulled this out. He had an old helmet laying around his house and had a buddy of his, Mando Velazquez letter it up. Now I can place this on the front table of my booth as signage. Thanks Jeff for the gift. It is way cool.

73 FLH Shovelhead

These pics were sent in from Jeffery Goo down in Vegas. Here's a quick story on the 73 FLH Shovelhead his friend owns.
"We shot these photos north of the I15 fwy in Nevada. My friend Chopper Jay (Jason Martin) called me up and told me to meet him out there. His bike is a 73 FLH Shovelhead, 10" over on the springer, mid mount shift suicide cluth. The shifting lever is a Saber that actually pulls out, S&S stroker kit. His grandfather bought it in 74 and was featured in a biker mag back in 2000. After his grandfather had passed, Jay got the bike,rebuilt it and named it "Old Fucker."

Jeff drove out this past Saturday from Vegas to check out a Econoline show down at the Rose Bowl and stopped by Long Beach afterwards and we had lunch. Jeff rides a pretty cool Panhead that I want to shoot the next time I'm up in Vegas. It's a 51FL with a 47 Springer. His buddy Nate tells me that "Jeff is always working on it and changing something, but it's never down for long because Jeff loves to ride."
