Goodbye Schaidy (pt.3)


Alright Schaidy! Good luck to you in Oregon. By now you're already there and probably drinking art some new bar (might I suggest HERE for reference) We're all going to miss you!

Look, Jay the photobomber got one upp'ed by the dude behind him! Didn't see that coming...

Long Beach Cycle Swap (random shots)


There's the monthly sea of Stockers and Baggers. A tide that comes in through the port of Long Beach approx every 30 days, high tide lasts for about 6-8 hours and then dissipates again... 

Through it all there's always a keeper or two, the rest are (how do I put this delicately?) "too short" to keep. (that's what she said.) This month was pretty average, I think there was an equal part exodus due to Born Free happening last month (and burnout) v. we're still partying like it's 1999!!! going on. I got some good shots and I actually saw some bike that I must have missed at Born Free last month (because EVERYONE was there right? maybe not.) I'll post them up over the next few days.

So what do you think? Is it a Fat's Noriega build? Dick Allen Survivor? Other...






Well, I'll be the first to admit, I'm no expert. But here's a Ironhead chopper that was for sale on Sunday 7/26 at the Long Beach Cycle Swap. It's got the tell tale "South Bay Swoop" of a Fat's Noriega build, although they were also popular in several old Dick Allen photographs (after all, their shops were within a quarter mile of each other in Redondo Beach). The front springer is obviously not a Fat's springer. Rumor has it the current owner trying to flip it, bought it last week out of a barn in Iowa, which might make it a mail order chopper or build by some out of town shop, but we've all heard rumors fall apart in short order. Regardless, it's a piece of history worth a sharing and I love the Swoop. So, enjoy.

Goodbye Schaidy...

It was early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be moving on..
Like a ship without an anchor
Like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies
Sends a shiver through my veins
 And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few
 Goodbye Schaidy, it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true

FARTBARF at the Downtwon Santa Ana East End Block Party 7/26/2014







Group rode from the Gasser Lounge and met up with a fist full of the Bacon Crew to watch FARTBARF play live at the Downtown Santa Ana East End Block Party! It might have only been 95 degrees out, but I'll bet it was 110 in those masks... "What masks?" ...Never mind. Good times.
