Tattoo Complete

So I broke out the color pencils for the first time in years and got some color onto my drawing. In comparison to what Jason at Living Canvas Tattoo was able to do with it, my sketch now looks like a kindergartener's drawing. I'm very happy with the way this turned out, and I can't wait to show my daughter Ayden.

Favorite Bikes - Evilact/Cherry's Company

What's my favorite bike of all time? I don't know. What I do know is I'm more partial to whats going on in Japan than whats going on over here in the USA. Here's one of my favorite bikes, built by Cherry's Company, for the clothing company Evilact . You can see more of this bike on another Japanese clothing company's blog called NAIL. Its a great mix of one off parts, parts from the past, and innovative ideas. Check it out.

Inspiration - Warren Lane

So while writing an article recently, I was reminded of who I was inspired by in the past in terms of building bikes. I would have to say that Warren Lane has had probably the biggest impact on my perspective of things. His ability to detail things no one would normally care about, and his use of parts he made instead of bolting on someone elses crap has always inspired me. Warren was quoted in the article as saying  ‘If you know what you are doing, you are not learning!’ . I tend to consider myself as someone who is constantly learning also. Whenever  I'm building I'm always trying to do something for the first time, and its through trying and making mistakes that I have learned the most. Recently, did a two part article on him. You can check it out part one here , and part two here .

Tattoo Tuesday

Wouldn't it be great if every Tuesday you could get a tattoo? Well I wish I had the time and money to. Ayways, it's been an embarrasingly long time since I've been tattooed, so its time to get back to doing it. I had drawn this up a year ago, never did anything with them and honestly can't remember my thinking on placement. We will see what I can think of in the next few days to get my daughter's name finally put on me.

We are working on it......

Websites are coming.....

Goodbye Daytona

Thanks to technical difficulties and the weather we didn't really accomplish anything we set out to except shake down the bike. Note to self, never leave home with a bike that's never been ridden before! Parking lot/hotel room fixes were fun, and thanks to Daytona ACE hardware for advising us on temporary fixing materials. Overall, leaving with many memories and reminders of what supportive friends I have. Back to NY now.
